Since No One Takes Trump Seriously, The White House Sent Out Mattis To Threaten N. Korea

Defense Secretary James Mattis warned North Korea that any threat to the United States would be met with a massive and overwhelming military response.

Mattis said, “Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming.

The Defense Secretary also called on North Korea to listen to the united voice of the UN Security Council, ““All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses and they remain unanimous in their commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said we have many options to do so.”

Mattis was sent out to threaten North Korea because he has more credibility than Trump. The North Koreans aren’t taking the President Of The United States seriously, so the White House to send out the Secretary of Defense to illustrate how serious this crisis has become.

The statement that Mattis read looks like nothing more than more saber rattling and empty threats from this administration. Until there are concrete signs that the US is planning military action, the North Koreans know that they can afford not to take Trump and his administration seriously.

Trump has damaged the presidency to such a degree that less than a year after taking office, he has to send his Defense Secretary out to deliver stern warnings and deal with a looming nuclear crisis.
