North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un has pushed the world to the brink of war.
He’s refused to back down from his nuclear weapons program and tensions are at a boiling point.
But even he wasn’t prepared for what happened next.
North Korea recently released Otto Warmbier after they held the 22-year-old in captivity for 17 months.
He was sent back to the United States in a coma where he tragically passed away.
Warmbier was held on ridiculous charges of trying to steal a poster and Americans were outraged over his treatment.
Donald Trump released a statement on his passing which was posted on WhiteHouse.gov:
“Melania and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of Otto Warmbier on his untimely passing. There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life. Our thoughts and prayers are with Otto’s family and friends, and all who loved him.
Otto’s fate deepens my Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency. The United States once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim.”
North Korea is still holding three other Americans in captivity and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson demanded North Korea release them.
Fox News reports:
“Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States held North Korea accountable for Warmbier’s “unjust imprisonment” and demanded that the country release three other Americans it is holding prisoner for alleged crimes against the state. The U.S. government has previously accused North Korea of using such detainees as political pawns.”
United States leaders from Donald Trump on down took a strong moral stand against North Korea’s brutal treatment of Warmbier and his tragic death.
Attack the artillery they have on the DMZ and wipe them out in one fell swoop before they can think about shooting them off and attacking the South. Once they re gone, they re not prepared to use any missles offensively yet anyway and then we take out their launch sites and science labs. Let him look at his devistated Military for about one minute and then send a rocket right up his you know what !!!!!
War is Hell ! But since time began, there are times for war to keep Fools from Destroying Man Kind! I served in the Navy and Air Force for 24 years ! No one wants to see the the loss of any loved one or innocent human! But there are times when we must make the sacrifice of innocent people to gain Freedom and Security for the rest of the World! I’m 77 years old and I’d go tomorrow just the same as Our Forefathers did for Me!!
forst of all your not dealing with high minds all they know and trained for is wars.
they have no moral compass. SO don’t go under the assumption they are NOT know for intelligence.
look they put his fat boy in charge after father finally died. he knows nothing he just keep kicking the can down the ally.
That is one country that we don’t want to occupy. We need to find a leader in NK who wants to change the country to a democracy and throw an olive branch to all western and Asian countrys. Then we back that person by first taking out Jim Jung un. Our navy SEALs can do it. Then we help NK become a viable country by making sure its people have enough to eat. We need to stop the suffering of the NK people.
There should have been one Korea today. If Truman had listened to McArthur and not that screwed up UN. We had the tools, and I was there to see it. Now the south and possibly Japan will be wasted. Take out the north leadership and another will take its place.
You forget that NK had already lost the war and the Chinese sent thousands of soldiers in to help defend NK. Only the front line were given rifles, The next line was to pick up the rifle and keep on attacking and when they got shot the next line picked up the rifle and kept attacking. The fourth line shot anyone who did not obey orders or did not fight as they wanted.
North Korea is one place where all must 100% agree with a leader who is a baby and must be bowed to and obeyed without question. Too much assistance flows into NK and that needs to end, but it will not stop. NK = hate all and spy on everyone. I was in South Korea north of Soeul at Uigonbu at Camp Red Cloud in 1986 and the tension then was tense to say the least. It is only more tense now. NK wants to take over the South and the DMZ has tunnels under it all over the place.
I am all for taking him out….however i want him to suffer for a little while before death like he did to that poor boy. But remember you must take out all his soldiers too. They are like cockroaches…you kill one and 50 more like him come out. You have to exterminate the whole nest.
THE BOYS OF THE FORGOTTEN WAR KNOW FIRST HAND THE CRUELTY OF NORTH KOREANS. ON THE BORDER A NK GUARD PUT AN AX IN THE BACK OF AN AMERICAN GUARD ON THE OTHER SIDE. ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO. ASK KOREAN VETS HOW THEY WERE TREATED AS POWS. LESS THAN 1% OF THE NATION PROTECT THE SNOWFLAKES. WHEN THE FIRST BIG ONE GOES OFF. IF YOU CAN HEAR ANYTHING IT WILL BE ALL AMERICANS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 16 AND 60 REPORT TO YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE OR NATIONAL GUARD ARMORY.
I’m not an advocate for war but I’m pretty sure that sanctions will not do any good. The common people of North Korea have been held hostage by insane leadership for many years and it seems to me that this is a case where one of our expert marksmen could do the job without collateral damage!
I read recently that he is really running scared. He has word that South Korea and the USA have “Decapitation Squads” trained by US Navy Seals that are out looking for him. All of his travel has changed and he is very much under cover….what I want to know is what if they cannot find a neck?
