The dictator of the songun ruled country of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, has replied to the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s warning through his State run News station saying that they are preparing for a misile attack against Guam. The Democrat People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) put out the following statement: “It is a tragedy that the reckless and hysteric behaviors may reduce the U.S. Mainland to ashes any moment… the US and its vassal forces will dearly pay for the harshest sanctions and pressure and reckless military provocations against the DPRK.”
President Trump tweeted on Friday morning (08/11/2017): “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” He followed up by saying in a press interview, “I hope they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said and what I said is what I mean. So hopefully, Peter, they will understand exactly what I said and the meaning of those words, those words are very, very easy to understand.” He went on to say, “… and this man will not get away with what he’s doing, believe me. If he utters one threat in the form of an over threat, which by the way he’s been uttering for years and his family has been uttering for years, or he does anything with respect to Guam, or any where else that is an American territory or an American Ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast.” A few hour later President Trump addressed the threat again from his Home in New Jersey. “Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump, that I can tell you. Hopefully it will all work out but this has been going on for many years. It would have been a lot easier to solve this years ago before they were in the position that we’re in. But we will see what happens, we think that lots of good things could happen but we also could have a bad solution. But we think lots of good things could happen… If anything happens to Guam there’s going to be big, big trouble in North Korea…”
The Ambassadors of both countries are meeting regularly discussing the three Americans held in prison in North Korea. As the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the United States of America have no formal diplomatic relations, Sweden acts as the protecting power of United States interests in North Korea for consular matters. Since the Korean War, the United States has maintained a strong military presence in South Korea. However, the United States has considered South Korea as the sole legitimate representative of all of Korea. The last Ambassador to Korea was Mark Lippert, Barack Obama’s appointee. The ambassador position has been vacant since President Donald Trump took office. Marc Knapper, formerly Deputy Chief of Mission under Lippert, is serving as Chargé d’Affaires ad interim in the absence of an ambassador.
North Korean state-run media responded yet again on Saturday. The Minju Choson newspaper threatened “tragic doom” in response to the rhetoric. “If Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom, they need to be prudent on what they say and how they act,”
