Top Democrats called President’s Trump’s harsh warning Tuesday to North Korea “reckless,” but intelligence and military experts said the commander-in-chief’s promise of “fire and fury” was justified given Kim Jong Un’s continued threats and disdain for diplomacy.
Confirmed reports that Pyongyang could put nuclear weapons on the tips of missiles – and thus possibly make good on repeated threats to attack U.S. cities – prompted Trump’s unusually dire threat. But the message had to be delivered, said former CIA station Chief Daniel Hoffman.
Conservative Review’s Chris Pandolfo said the criticism of Trump was misdirected.
“It’s a funny thing when the American news media and other blue checkmarks on Twitter are more concerned with President Trump’s words than they are with North Korea obtaining nuclear ICBMs,” he wrote. “But here we are.”
Hussein Obamas laden-stå-til med Nord Korea er en tidsindstillet bombe, han har givet videre til Trump – som en håndgranat med splitten trukket ud.
