North Korea Warns of Nuclear War, Trump Says U.S. Is ‘Locked and Loaded’

August 11th, 2017

Via: Reuters:

President Donald Trump issued a new threat to North Korea on Friday, saying what he called U.S. military solutions were “locked and loaded” as Pyongyang accused him of driving the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.

Russia, China and Germany expressed alarm at the escalating rhetoric from Pyongyang and Washington, while the Pentagon said the United States and South Korea would move ahead as planned with a joint military exercise in 10 days, an action sure to further antagonize North Korea.

Trump, vacationing at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort, kept up the war of words on Twitter and again referenced North Korea’s leader. “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely,” he wrote. “Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

    Let’s hope it all de-escalates quickly. I am the world’s number one lapsed prepper. I would be royally caught out if things kick off this summer!

    I doubt that North Korea is capable of delivering a nuclear weapon with an ICBM, but I do wonder what this thing is for:

    High altitude EMP would be… Very bad.

    After decades of refusing to acknowledge the risks, we’re seeing stuff like this:
