#United States President Donald Trump has issued a fresh threat to North Kore over the ongoing crisis by stating that the military is ready to attack if the country acts 'unwisely'. This is yet another provocative military threat to North Kora from the President within a span of a week and the ugly war of words between the two nations might continue unabated for the foreseeable future.

Fresh Trump bombast

Earlier this week United States President Donald Trump stated that he will unleash “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on #North Korea if it threatened the US in any way. He went on to threaten a nuclear attack on the tiny Asian country but that was obviously not the end of it as he took to twitter this morning to issue more threats to North Korea.

The President took to his favorite social media website this morning and sent out a tweet [VIDEO] in which he indicated the military was prepared to mount an attack on North Korea if the country's leaders did anything unwise.

Trump tweeted, "Military solutions are now fully in place, #Locked And Loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully, Kim Jong Un will find another path!". According to a New York Times report, there has not been any mobilization of forces as yet but at the same time the report pointed out that any military conflict in the area might end up laying waste to not only North Korea but also the South Korean capital of Seoul.

Military is ready

Although it is true that no military mobilization has taken place yet, Jim Mattis, the United States Defense Secretary has stated that the military is in full readiness.

He said, “I don’t tell the enemy in advance what I’m going to do. Our readiness, we are ready.” The basis of the present situation with North Korea lies in the country's temperamental supreme commander Kim Jong-un's threat of bombarding the American held territory of Guam with missiles.

Donald Trump's response to the whole thing has been quite bizarre, to say the least. After threatening a nuclear attack, the President responded to the widespread criticism of his statement by stating that it was possible that his first statement was probably not tough enough. North Korea's general Kim Rak-gyom responded to the President's statements by calling him senile and went on to say that he is 'bereft of reason'. At the end of the day, it seems highly unlikely that the United States is going to go to war with North Korea and one can expect that the entire episode will soon be forgotten for being nothing more than a juvenile exchange of insults.
