Kim Jong-Un has been a thorn in everyone’s side for years and he is not going away anytime soon. However, what makes it worse is that under the Obama administration, Kim Jong-Un’s antics were allowed to continue. Though under the administration of Trump that is all about to change, and that was proven after what V.P. Mike Pence had to say this on Monday.
Vice President Mike Pence is on a roll right now and it is awesome to watch. Currently, Pence is in Asia speaking to our allies and checking on our defenses. But, it was what he said last night that has everyone talking. Pence held a joint Press Conference with the leader of South Korea, and he had some strong words for Kim Jong-Un.
Pence sternly told the North Korean dictator that ‘era of patience’ was over, and our commitment to South Korea was ‘iron-clad’.

Mike Pence also went on to say to Kim Jong-Un that he should not test the resolve of President Trump. Pence also went on to say that all “options are on the table” to deal with the threat presented by Pyongyang.
Of course, the left will try to spin this as Trump and Pence initiating war, but that is hardly the case. For years, we have been patient and tried to negotiate with a madman, and it has failed miserably.
Pence then took the time to reiterate the new position to CNN.
Pence is right about all of this. Now, it is time for a new approach and I can honestly say that it is about damn time. Mike Pence is not calling for war since that does not do anyone any good. We all want peace and to resolve this issue properly, but the old way has failed.
We cannot continue to travel the same path of negotiations and expect different results. In fact, that is the definition of insanity. While the rest of us may be cheering over this news it seems that Russia is not as excited.
According to Daily Mail:
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said: ‘We do not accept the reckless nuclear missile actions of Pyongyang that breach UN resolutions, but that does not mean that you can break international law. I hope that there will not be any unilateral actions like the one we saw recently in Syria.’
Last night, the US refused to rule out a pre-emptive strike on North Korea as Trump’s national security adviser warned the situation was ‘coming to a head’.
After the rogue state ran a missile test that failed, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said ‘all our options are on the table’ to try to ‘avoid the worst’.
All I can say at this point is that I am glad that we have some real change in charge. Our current administration has a real chance at fixing what the previous administrations have not been able to. But, truth be told the ball is in North Korea’s court.
I can only hope and pray that they do not push the resolve of President Trump or V.P. Pence. These guys are not as easily swayed as Obama and his minions at all.
What do you think about Pence’s threat? Will North Korea listen to reason and lie back or will we end up in a nuclear war?
