North Korea launched a successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Monday that, according to US officials, could reach Alaska and Hawaii. North Korean state media said the missile reached an altitude of more than 2,800 kilometers (1,741 miles), before it splashed down in the sea off the Korean Peninsula 930 kilometers (578 miles) from the launch site. It was a ‘gift’ for us ‘American bastards,’ said Kim Jong Un, to help us celebrate our independence. Very considerate indeed.

Donald J. Trump responded via his favorite platform, with a tweet that came off as one of the most pristine examples of pot/kettle/black in the history of pots and kettles.

Seriously? Jeebus mamaloocha. Alaska and Hawaii, please start packing your bags…come home…pick a mountain range on the mainland and set up camp. Things are not looking good.

Gen. Vincent Brooks, the top American general in South Korea, said Wednesday that it’s only self-restraint that is preventing a full-on nuclear holocaust.

“Self-restraint, which is a choice, is all that separates armistice and war,” he told The New York Times. “As this alliance missile live-fire shows, we are able to change our choice when so ordered by our alliance national leaders.

Thus far, our dear leader has yet to nominate an ambassador to South Korea. It’s among many diplomatic posts at the State Department that the Trump administration has yet to fill.

This escalation with North Korea comes in advance of Donald’s bilateral meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin on Friday on the margins of the G-20 economic summit. After Kim Jong Un’s ‘gift’ to America, Putin called for multilateral talks between China, Russia, the US and North Korea, saying, “It is very important to push forward our joint initiative on settling the Korean problem with a view of immediately freezing the ballistic missile strikes and also dealing with the US deployment of weapons in South Korea.”

This is in direct opposition to our current policy of non-engagement with North Korea.

There is no great solution here, however, having an impetuous, narcissistic child with access to ICBMs is enough to make your taint vibrate with terror…and Kim Jong Un is pretty scary too!
