The standoff between the United States and North Korea continues to escalate with neither side willing to back down.
With each passing day, the possibility of open warfare breaking out seems to increase as each side ups the ante. Indeed, President Donald Trump has ratcheted up his rhetoric in recent days – seemingly threatening to launch a nuclear first strike against North Korea.
‘North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,’ Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. ‘They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.’
