'Don't play with fire on a powder keg'

Kim Jong-un has warned Donald Trump he is pushing North Korea to the brink of nuclear war after the US and South Korea conducted a life-fire exercise on the peninsula.

The test was in response to North Korea’s successful attempt to fire an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) last week.

The test sparked global alarm as it suggested North Korea now possessed an ICBM capable of reaching Alaska, a major milestone for the reclusive, nuclear-armed state.

Saturday’s drill, designed to ‘sternly respond’ to potential missile launches by the North, saw two US bombers destroy ‘enemy’ missile batteries and South Korean jets mount precision strikes against underground command posts.

The North’s state-run Rodong newspaper accused Washington and Seoul of ratcheting up tensions with the drill, in an editorial titled ‘Don’t play with fire on a powder keg’.

‘The US, with its dangerous military provocation, is pushing the risk of a nuclear war on the peninsula to a tipping point,’ it said, describing the peninsula as the ‘world’s biggest tinderbox.’

Perhaps Trump just needs to make clear to Kim Jong-un that the US isn't completely against North Korea having Nuclear missiles. We object to them having Nuclear missiles and a paranoid delusional nut job in charge!

Eliminated YES...but gosh not via nuclear.

We don't want to go that route at all or what we know/do today will be vastly different tomorrow. I don't like thinking about what a nuclear aftermath tomorrow would be like.

MOST times, the grass is NOT green on the other side!!!

There are 30,000 US service members + their families living on the Korean Peninsula. Just something to keep in mind.

Sorry, Team 6 was eliminated to cover up the lie about Bin Laden's 3rd death and body disposal at sea.
Remember, the helicopter crash in Afghanistan? That was Team 6.

Very sad.

But we get your point, and we all AGREE whole-heartedly!
That dude should have a . . . boot in the arse!
