President Trump On North Korea: 'Lock And Loaded'

NBC: Trump: U.S. Military ‘Locked and Loaded’ for North Korea

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea ratcheted up on Friday, as President Donald Trump doubled down on military threats.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

Moments later, he retweeted a message from the U.S. Pacific Command’s official Twitter account, stating that "#USAF B-1B Lancer #bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill USFK’s #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so."

Anyone knowing anything about nukes, the president, and targeting, would know that we are locked and loaded and also aimed at possible sites from a long time back and constantly revise such things to ensure up to date

Fred that's true - unless a rare or new weapon has recently been approved for this mission - but more likely you're right and Trump is just being himself..

fazman said...

I doubt Trump has ever been talking about Nukes
He is referring to a,shock and awe conventional campaign with bomber and cruise missile co ordinates primed and ready for launch with provocation.

It does not matter, Fazman, what he may or may not refer to. An attack on an ally will beget a quick response...that was true under the previous presidents, unless one is a biased person who thinks only this president would respond to a broken treaty that brought devestation to an ally, in nations where we have a lot of troops who would also be under attack. it is thus the ususual bluster, which, in this case, is Walk loudly and shout about your big stick

Fred, I am prejudiced. I prejudge all the time. I do not walk the streets of main street past 10 at night. I avoid certain neighborhoods even to drive through. I prejudged women that I dated. However, unlike you I do not prejudged based on color.

A classmate of mine was assaulted on main street around midnight immediately outside a club. It was 1 or 2 blocks from the library. I was not able to contact him for 2 weeks.
He was my partner n a class project. In my youth I was able to be on main street at 10 PM or 11 PM. Now I have to judge the streets ahead of time as more dangerous.

Thus, the current impression in Asia, Europe and the Middle East that the U.S. is not a reliable ally cannot be based on a historical assessment of its reliability.

I accept your defeat.


Is that all you could muster? You could not spell it out for extra emphasis?


fazman said...

It matters in so much as Trump is being portrayed as a rouge potus who is poised to order a nuclearcounter attack.
There is a huge difference between his description of a conventional shock and awe campaign and a nuclear strike that is being put forward by CNN and the left

NK has no oil. Who will supply them? You know who.

It is obvious.

Maybe it is not doable.

All India has to do is hold and block passage of tankers.

Russia could supply China. Pakistan could press India from the northwest.

War could absolutely wreck China. Is their hound that is becoming more ungovernable worth it?
