Fire & Fury: Is The Trigger Event Upon Us?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are quite likely aware of the present situation between North Korea and the United States.

Are we at the brink? Is the trigger event nearly upon us?

The president of the United States just said any threat to the U.S. would be met with ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’.

The rhetoric between Kim Jong-un and the U.S. president has ratcheted up to the point of no return. One side will have to back down at this point or we will be facing a conflict. And this conflict could potentially change our world.

It is being reported that “US officials believe Kim Jong-Un has built a miniaturized warhead and has an arsenal of 60 nuclear bombs”.

It is also being reported that North Korea’s recent ICBM testing reveals they now have the capability to reach all the way in to the United States lower-48.

China has not stopped the Pyongyang dictator from escalating the crisis and in fact China has staged ‘large-scale’ military exercises with dozens of ships, fighter jets and submarines adjacent to the Korean Peninsula on Monday – just months after moving 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea.

North Korea has just warned it is ‘carefully examining’ plans to make ‘an enveloping fire’ around Guam, the home of Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam.

The United States answered by releasing images of B-1B Lancer supersonic bombers flying over the Korean peninsula while American airmen in Guam have said they are ready to ‘fight tonight’.

Just days ago Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a ‘severe lesson’ with its strategic nuclear force in response to any U.S. military action.

Yesterday when a reporter asked the president about the nuclear standoff he said ‘North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,’.

It sounds like we’re at the end of the road. There seems to be no more wiggle room.

A few questions for you:

Who is going to blink first?

What are the scenarios that may unfold?

How will each of these scenarios affect you and me?

Please answer with your comment and opinion below regarding the NK nuclear standoff:
