Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat merely feeds into Pyongyang's ideology that Americans are imperialists. This is the kind of rhetoric we usually hear on North Korean state television with their newscasters semi-regularly threatening to reduce Seoul and/or Washington to a "sea of flames".

 

Not my own comment, but one I have just read and causes me to consider how easily a whole population can be stirred up once again to hate those imperialist Yankees. Yep sanctions one day, and the imperialist threatening fire and fury raining down on them that the world has never seen the next. I wonder what I would be thinking right now if I had been unlucky enough to have been born in that country.

If you have an inaccurate missile, targeting a nearby continent make more sense.

Perhaps it'll be a real life "Mad Max" in Australia's near future.

I wonder if any of the missiles aimed at Australia will accidentally hit us?

I think you'll have to keep wondering. It's possible.

Probably not. There are lots of World Maps without New Zealand and NK seems to have one here.

As supplier of the most modern plane in the NK fleet, they'll spare us - we'll be needed for spare parts supply.

You've got to accentuate the positive.. eliminate the negative... blah blah.

 

 

Twice a day since the beginning of the Trump administration, a special folder is prepared for the president. The first document is prepared around 9:30 a.m. and the follow-up, around 4:30 p.m. Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer both wanted the privilege of delivering the 20-to-25-page packet to President Trump personally, White House sources say.

 

These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and former White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful.

Gosh. It sounds like the Wellington City Council.

The four horsemen are believed to have paid for lifetime platinum memberships at Trump's golf resort.

In Trump's absence the four horsemen will be ably served by Trump's racist butler. It's not hard to imagine the 'have you seen the news today sir?' conversations in the old Trump residence.

Thats China s job, they support NK, and they see SEA as their region to be the main player in

 

 

 

 

China and NK haven't had a deal since last year. China doesn't support DPRK at all any more, apparently. 

 

 

 

 

 

In February 2017, China restricted all coal imports from North Korea until 2018. This is considered to be extremely harmful to the North Korean economy with coal being the top export of the nation and China being their top trading partner. China has said this was in line with the UN sanctions against North Korea, but it is speculated that this occurred because of a mix of events, including recent nuclear tests, the suspected assassination of Kim Jong-nam, brother of ruler Kim Jong-un, and pressure on China from the rest of the world and especially the USA.[30][31][32]

 

Banking

 

On 7 May 2013, Bank of China, China's biggest foreign exchange bank and other Chinese banks closed the account of North Korea's main foreign exchange bank.[33]

 

On February 21, 2016 China quietly ended financial support of North Korea without any media publicity. It is reported to be due to the fallout of relations between the two governments.[35]

Wow.

 

So long as KJU doesn't issue an order to "nuke Australia at precisely six o'clock".

He won't. If he does he is toast, Trump said it himself. It's not what he wants, this is a negotiation tactic that is very dangerous. Especially with the Trump factor. Or at least Trump is trying to portray it that way.
