America has proved that it is not a nation to be messed with as they now have 1,200 marines who are ready for war with North Korea, if need be. Vice President Mike Pence recently sent out a warning vowing to crush North Korea with an “overwhelming and effective response” should Kim Jong-un employ nuclear weapons.
Donald Trump’s right-hand man issued the explosive statement from the windswept deck of a large US aircraft carrier during his recent visit to Japan. Pence Addressed 2,500 Japanese sailors aboard the USS Ronald Reagan and said “readiness is key” to meet North Korean missile attacks. He ensured all the military personnel present that “the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready” under Donald Trump.
Pence’s comments came after a North Korean diplomat told a UN summit that thermonuclear war could potentially break out “at any moment”. Pence revealed to reporters that “all options are on the table” to bring a halt to Jong-un and his rapidly developing nuclear program. Trump’s number two added, “Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response.”
In the meantime, 1,250 US Marines arrived in Australia yesterday that are prepared to fight should war break out in North Korea. The troops, who are currently stationed in Darwin, will spend six months conducting joint military exercises alongside Chinese forces. Senior Marines’ commander Colonel Brian Middleton said the deployment would “strengthen” the alliance between China and the US. Middleton added, “We stand ready to fight and win the night always.”
In an attempt to ramp up tensions even further, North Korea decided to release footage of a simulated attack destroying a US city. Kim Jong-un even used the annual “Day of the Sun” parade in Pyongyang to make a chilling display of North Korea’s nuclear power and military might
