President Trump is returning to Washington D.C. on Monday and is expected to have a busy week ahead.

On Sunday, the President had little to say about the crisis after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned he has plans to wipe out the U.S.

During a New Year’s address on the North Korean State T.V., Kim Jong Un claimed North Korea has a nuclear deterrent against a possible U.S. military invasion.

The North Korean leader reiterated his country has developed a capability to hit the U.S. mainland with its missiles.

He added military tensions on the Korean Peninsula must be defused, and called for better relations with South Korea.

He said Pyongyang might send its national team to the Winter Olympics which is set to take place in South Korea in February.

“The Winter Games to be held in South Korea will be a good occasion for the country. We sincerely hope that the Winter Olympics will be a success,” said Kim Jong Un. “We are prepared to take various steps, including the dispatch of the delegation. Officials from the two Korea’s may urgently meet to discuss the possibility.”

Kim Jong Un went on to promise he’s open to a dialogue with South Korea, and will only use nuclear weapons if threatened.

    Li’l Kim sez he has a nuclear button on his desk. Prolly has a red Swingline stapler, too.

  • DEPLORABLE #1,911,069

    WOW!!! This article is so confusing…First it says…”North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned he has PLANS to wipe out the U.S.”….Then it goes on to say…”Kim Jong Un claimed North Korea has a nuclear deterrent against a possible U.S. MILITARY INVASION.”…….Lastly it says….Kim Jong Un will ONLY use nuclear weapons if THREATENED….WELL??? Which one is it??? He has PLANS to destroy the U.S., yet he will not make a nuclear move unless attacked! See how confusing this article is??? I think the writers AND Kim Jong Un are ignorant.

  • Rupert

    China has lied again. They ‘said’ they were interested in helping reign in their puppet North Korea but continue to supply them with everything they need to carry on their hostile actions unimpeded. It is obvious the words, moves and actions of Kim Jong are actually the words, moves and actions of Xi Jinping. We need a new and ‘quite different’ trade deal with China ASAP.

    • Scotty

      We need more domestic manufacturing capability to be built up before we can make a “quite different” trade deal with China. Trump is doing all he can to make that happen, but we’re not there yet. As for China, they can never be trusted. Russia either.

  • Richard McMeekin

    Kim, still pursuing his nuclear blackmail hoax, has just been forced, economically, to put his entire armed forces on extended leave, “so they could forage for food.

  • Chris Gerber

    Using nuclear power for domestic purposes is one thing… developing weapons because of your own paranoia and then threatening other nations with it is quite another. “Calls for dialogue”? He has some nerve. I have a tendency to think that other nations aren’t going to give him an audience considering his history regarding this. Once you establish a pattern of distrust, it follows you for the rest of your life.

  • scottie

    We need to push him hard. Make him make a move toward war, then stomp on him like the world has never seen.

      Good plan. Seoul might not like it.

  • Send his girlfriend Denise – er – Dennis – over to placate him.

  • scottie

    The Russians and the Chinese hope we will be forced to use our missile defense system so they can evaluate it. Think about it. They keep telling Kim, just keep launching. Once the US responds, we will have valuable information. They wont attack you. Kim Id bet is not really nuclear capable as we think. I believe this to be a trap, like the WMD in Iraq. Imagine our world image if we attack and find they arent even close to a real launch and we were never in danger. Just a thought, and only my humble opinion.

  • MJS92882

  • scottie

    This guy has been pulling this crap since his Dad and Grandad did the same. They are blackmailers. We should not show the world blackmail works by going along with anything or talking with him at all. We want the entire Penninsula nuclear free or no talking, war maybe, but no talking. We need to act soon or it will be a much, much greater loss of life.

  • Scotty

    Dialogue? Under the threat of nuclear annihilation? Don’t give that fat little putz the time of day, and don’t let them send athletes to the SK games.

  • Roscoe

    It is long past due that this fat flat head is removed from power just for the crimes against his people! Just look at the difference between the North and South Korea’s. The Northern Koreans live in poverty under government oppression and the South Korean’s are an economic powerhouse with people living in freedom. It is the duty of the free world to remove this pervert from power and make one Korea like the South.

  • Re

    Sad when rocket man thinks he has so much power. He is a true dictator starving his people so he can buy more rocket parts to threaten everyone. Why does he feel so threatened .he has, more threat from his own people .

  • IceColdLogic

    He considers anything he doesn’t like to be a “threat” so his assurance doesn’t mean much.

  • Susie Que

    The only reason he wants to talk is to give him more access to bomb making supplies and more time to build them. He must be eliminated NOW!

  • Tyrone

    So, during Kim Jong Un’s adult lifetime, he has seen the US led forces take out leaders of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.
    Nuclear weapons are his only equalizer so that he is not taken out.
    Bush decleared NK one of the three ‘Evils of Axis’…i’m not endorsing his actions, only trying to look at this situation from another persceptive.

    Maybe KJU would understand a whomper, but diplomacy will have the same result as ever–FAILURE. Neither he nor we know the way to peace, for the is no way except through the Prince of Peace, who will soon come, judging and making war in righteousness (Revelation 19:11) until He makes the kingdoms of this world the Kingdom of Yahuwah and of His Messiah, our Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus), but not the effeminate wimp that many people imagine. His power will drive all evil off the face of the earth, and twerps like KJU will bite the dust, in Yahusha’s Name, amein.

    His message; pay and I won’t kill you… because that’s what the criminally insane do.

  • I lived in South Korea for 2 years – was there when N. Korea broke cease fire agreement for the first time — SK people didn’t even flinch. SK people do not take NK seriously, why on earth should the US? NK “threat” is a bunch of hype that the main stream media loves to feed into. I hope NK gives the US a reason to invade and liberate the oppressed people of NK. They have been living under insane conditions, concentration camps, zero health care, fear, oppression for far too long.

    • nfcapitalist

      Why should we take North Korea seriously… is the question.

      Answer; they now have “ATOMIC BOMBS!!!!

      Lessons learned… paying your enemies not to kill you is foolish… e.g. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.

      “You can get an education from books and teachers but talent is forged by adversity and experience.” Edward Gibon. 1787

      • Right – and from my experience they are not worth taking seriously. Yes – they could launch a legit bomb that could land on US soil. But what would happen to them would be far worse. NK would be contributing to their own demise if they mess with the US and they know it.

  • Juxta Position

    KJU has no real power. He controlled.

  • One_way

    LMAO! Kim U Stupid needs a new barber.

  • Juxta Position

    NK does this crap all the time. They rattle sabres and then promise to be good if sanctions are lifted. Countries capitulate and the cycle begins anew. Just send in DEVGRU operators to extinguish the whole regime. Maybe the NK citizenry would help so they could have electricity.

  • PatriotInk

    The deceitful subtlety of claiming to need a “nuclear deterrent” already produces any “dialogue” premised upon a lie. More likely, this pot bellied little shoat is using this ruse to buy time to continue his pursuit of a nuclear NK.
    Apparently KJI thinks that wearing a coat and tie makes for more “diplomatic” appeal. The whole of it reveals nothing more than a barbarian who leads a bunch of savage butchers.

    Some of you don’t seem to know history. N. Korea is China’s proxy. This is how they test our leaders. The last time we tangled with N. Korea China deployed about 3 million (military and civilian) with about 400,000 killed and 486,000 wounded (1950 – 1958). China does not want America on their border. The next time we deal N. Korea it must be lighting fast and over before China has a
    chance to complain. It’s well past time we finally field a Missile Defensive System.

    • a voice of concern

      Pretty close but I believe the initial set up of NK was by Russia and there was a cease fire around 1953. Agree 100% with the response should it come to that. I only hope there are some great high speed camera’s at the border to record the exchange of the thousands of missiles and other stuff pointed at each other on the DMZ as it will most likely ALL go off at the same time.

      • TexasDeplorable1134

        Yes it was, the only thing that China had over the Soviets, was the man power to throw at it. I believe most of the China hardware came from the Soviets as well during that time frame. That was when both Soviets and China were HARDCORE communists. Now,,,,, not so much. Some ideological holdovers, but both countries have shown that a nation’s prosperity does NOT follow the communist path.

        What the people of N. Korea need to realize is that once their country allows them to prosper, their country will as well. When you suppress your citizenry only for the benefit of the country, it’s rots from the inside out.

      • Michael Hawk

        Yourself and Brad are Both Right I Think. Kim Is an “Evil” puppet for NOW .He talks A Good Game but has No Real Power If Push Comes to Shove……Both China and Russia I Think use Him as Their “dog on a leash” to Keep us here in the USA “occupied” and distracted…China OWNS 90 % of NKs economy don’t be fooled Chinas Goal is Absolute Control and Authority of ALL Chinas trade interests. They Could starve NK in no Time if THEY wanted ,they play both sides. NK does not have the resources including Food To wage ANY war …Kim would Fall…40% of NK is starving RIGHT NOW with almost Zero Medicine or hospitals for care. Malnutrition and disease caused by it is Common for almost Half of the Population …Look into it…..He Is no real threat to the USA but to the people he would probably kill close to him are a big deterrent …PC and Politics Worldwide would Really turn the USA in to the Evil cause of death lol ..sad but true.

    The fat boy has declared he has achieved his objective (nuke US if he is attacked). Now he wants to stop talking trash and reduce Pres. Trump’s threats.
    WHY is he changing?
    Is he scared? Is he strangled by sanctions?
    In any case, he is trying to save ‘face’.
    Do we humiliate him or let him out of of the situation gracefully?

    • All American

      He can’t get his Maverick Beef, Caviar and wine delivery!

    • red110306

      There is no graceful letting him off the hook. We either disarm him totally or we will be hearing threats from him till hell freezes over. He will always hold the threat of nuking the US over our heads. I don’t see any other way forward that doesn’t include taking him and his despot regime OUT!

    • TexasDeplorable1134

      >>Is he scared? Is he strangled by sanctions?
      Yes!

      >>In any case, he is trying to save ‘face’.
      Yes!

      >>Do we humiliate him or let him out of of the situation gracefully?
      I say he should be humiliated into thinking he was actually ready to wear big boy pants to ensure any other despotic government who also attempts this will be rightfully put into their place. Any other solution would further condone the “get nuclear destructive capability, threaten to use it, get respect” mentality that caused this situation in the first place. He needs to realize that getting nuclear capabilities and threatening to use it does not make you powerful, it makes you a TARGET!

      Sanctions brought them to the table last time as well, yet now they are closer than ever to threatening the entire planet. It is the only thing they know when they do not get what they want. It is time to end this, permanently! The same goes to Iran.

      • Roscoe

        Humiliate him and reduce him to a hand puppet of China.

    • Scotty

      Humiliate the crap out of him and keep doing it until he does something stupid. Then eliminate him and his worthless disease ridden basketcase slavecamp country.

      • TexasDeplorable1134

        He has chosen his path already and felt it was necessary to threaten the entire world with nuclear war if he does not get what he wants. Is that the rationale of a sane person? There is no dealing with this despotic tyrant at any level that would guarantee the safety of any in that region now or in the future. There is only one solution to this dilemma and that is for his removal, peaceful or otherwise.

    Anyone remember that kid in the neighborhood who was always a pain in the ace to everybody when he was just under 10 years old. All the adults said, “Awww, he just doesn’t know any better, he will learn.”
    Then he grows up and the adults who should have spanked his ace and beat that little $%*7 back then now say, “Someone please call the cops on this man who is now selling drugs to my daughter, beating up my son and robbing my grandmother. Please help me.”
