The North Korean regime is wild. They don’t know how to listen to numerous sanctions and warnings; they have continued their missile tests. The Mexican government announced Thursday something huge. They expelled the North Korean ambassador to Mexico.
The Mexican government said it made the move to protest North Korea’s repeated nuclear tests, giving the United States another ally in the fight to quell North Korea’s hostility.
The official statement from Mexico has given the ambassador 72 hours to leave the country. Mexico making this move makes North Korea even more isolated and lonely. The fact that they even had an ambassador from North Korea is ridiculous in itself.
President Trump has made it clear that military action isn’t off the table.
“Military action would certainly be an option,” Trump said. “It would be great if something else could be worked out.”
Trump suggested that the U.S. didn’t want to use military force, but indicated the aggressive behavior from North Korea would not be tolerated for much longer.
“Each day, new equipment is delivered; new and beautiful equipment, the best in the world — the best anywhere in the world, by far,” Trump said, referring to the power of the U.S. military.
Of course, we don’t want to use any kind of military action because we’re already stretched thin enough. Plus, South Korea is connected on the same peninsula as the despotic nation.
Trump has given numerous statements in the past several months in regards to North Korea, including making it clear that the US would not hesitate to rain down “fire and fury” against the regime should it provoke the U.S. or its allies.
Trump’s comments were in response to a mid-August threat that North Korea announced through their government media. They said that they were considering a missile strike against Guam.
What do you think of the Mexican government making this move?
