Remember all the controversy over President Trump’s ‘fire and fury‘ warning to North Korea?
Well, pacifist liberals better prepare to get their britches in a twist yet again, as the President has issued another three word warning to Kim Jong Un.
“Locked and loaded.”
As in, our military is locked, loaded, and ready for whatever North Korea tries to dish out.
Trump took to his twitter feed this morning to issue the warning.
“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!”

Via the Telegraph:
Donald Trump has warned North Korea that US military systems are “locked and loaded” if Kim Jong-un chooses to “act unwisely” amid rising tensions over Pyonyang’s nuclear programme.
… His comments on Friday morning came as China pleaded with the US and North Korea to tone down their fiery rhetoric.
… Concerns are growing that Pyongyang’s rogue arms programme could trigger a catastrophic conflict.
Trump’s warning could also be viewed as taking a veiled shot at China, who warned the United States not to go on the offensive.
According to a state-run newspaper in China, the plan is to stay neutral if North Korea attacks the United States, but to actively stop the U.S. should they try to overthrow the North Korean government.
“If the U.S. and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so,” according to a column in the Global Times.
Recently, the governor of Guam, a U.S. island territory threatened by North Korea, said he supports President Trump’s fiery rhetoric.
“I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the west coast that they will be met with hell and fury,” Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said.
Well, Governor Calvo, our military stands ready to deliver ‘hell and fury’ according to President Trump, and they’re “locked and loaded” to do so.
Should Trump tone down his rhetoric or continue talking to Kim Jong Un in a language he will understand? Tell us your thoughts below!
