N. Korea says Trump has "lit the wick of war" Russia's TASS agency

Source: MSN/Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump has "lit the wick of war" with North Korea and his country will be made to pay with "a hail of fire," a Russian news agency quoted North Korea's foreign minister as saying on Wednesday.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have risen in recent weeks over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

North Korea has test-fired several missiles and conducted what it said was a test explosion of a hydrogen bomb as it advances toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.

Speaking to Russia's state-run TASS news agency, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country's nuclear program guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion.

I was starting to wonder, since Trump has been out doing North Korea in the crazy department. North Korea finally responds with a border line declaration of war that could just give Trump the pretext he is looking for to start a nuclear war. After all, as Trump repeatedly asked his staff, what is the point of having nuclear weapons if you can't use them? On this point, both Trump and Kim Jong Un appear to agree or perhaps they are bluffing? Who knows?

2. North Korea doesn't know how crazy 45 is and they have been asking the GOP reps

what they think of his mental state to determine how serious he is. That almost makes me feel relieved that they question his sanity before deciding whether or not he is serious with his threats and how to react.

7. North Korea set a standard of irrational hostility that similar actors in America now emulate,

Huxley would have recognized both Trump and the Kimís. Trump is jealous in that in his world the Kimís make good deals without accountability (Trump gold standard).
