Was it coincidence that President Trump had a message for North Korea — and specifically Kim Jong Un — not long after he dropped the “mother of all bombs” on an ISIS camp in Afghanistan? We think not.
The message we sent to the world with that bomb speaks volumes. This is especially important given the rumors that North Korea could be planning a nuclear test as early as Saturday.
The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump stressed that North Korea “is a problem” that will be dealt with Thursday, shortly after news broke that the U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in its arsenal on the Islamic State in Afghanistan.
“I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not,” Trump said. “North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.”
The bomb dropped Thursday, a GBU-43 nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” was designed to obliterate an ISIS tunnel camp underground. The strike on ISIS marks the second major strike in a week.
North Korea appears to be on the verge of a sixth nuclear test, with analysts reporting that the Punggye-ri nuclear test site is “primed and ready” for a potential nuclear provocation. Evidence suggests that a nuclear device may already be in the tunnels in preparation for another test.
A U.S. Navy carrier strike group led by the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson is currently sailing towards the Korean Peninsula in preparation for a possible crisis involving North Korea.
