North Korean medium range ballistic missile, launching on Sunday is an “answer” to Trump’s policies.
North Korean government is ready for the mass-production of the new missile and according to Monday reports from The Associated Press, North Korea claims its missile can reach Japan and major U.S. military bases.
President Trump speaking with Rodrigo Duterte, Philippine President over the phone on April 29th, addressing a possible strike on North Korea using nearby submarines.
“We have a lot of firepower over there,” Trump said in a transcript of the call, an official document of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs. “We have two submarines — the best in the world — we have two nuclear submarines — not that we want to use them at all,” Trump continued. “I’ve never seen anything like they are, but we don’t have to use this but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.” . A transcript of the conversation was published by The Intercept.
The statement is supported by the naval records which show the USS Michigan Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine was in Busan, South Korea on a “routine visit.” The second vessel – USS Cheyenne Los Angeles-class attack submarine – was deployed soon after and arrived at a Navy base in Sasebo, Japan on May 2nd.
Trump calling the North Korean leader “ madman with nuclear weapons” was quite adamant with his goals and stated “ If China doesn’t do it, we will do it.”
Despite this plan’s serious nature it’s quite refreshing having a man of action in the Oval Office. Dealing North Korea has been a long and delicate task, one President Trump possess no qualms with tackling.
