It would seem God-Emperor Trump intends to shoot down the North Korean Missiles after all. He has ordered the deployment of THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missiles to South Korea and now the Aegis warships.
Is it about time? Maybe so, but even a straight forward “limited” military operation like shooting down missiles over the ocean carries risk. Destroying ships or aircraft over international waters is an act of war. Although the Korean War never officially ended , as the North Koreans themselves are wont to remind everyone. As crazy as the NK’s are it’s impossible to predict what their response will be and it could very well be more than we bargained for. After all the USA is hyper-sensitive to casualties and collateral damage whereas the North Korean regime is unconcerned about them, except in as much as they can be used to promote anti-American proganda and misinformation.
“Meanwhile, the navy has been continuing years of improvements in the Aegis radar and fire control system that controls SM-2, SM-6, and the smaller SM-3 anti-missile version. The SM-3 can destroy ballistic missiles and low orbit satellites. The Aegis anti-missile system has had a success rate of over 80 percent in knocking down incoming ballistic missile warheads during test firings. To achieve this, two similar models of the U.S. Navy Standard anti-aircraft missile are in service, in addition to a modified (to track incoming ballistic missiles version) version of the Aegis radar system.”
Electronic Weapons: All Together Now Against North Korea
Speculation is that Kim Jong Un intends to set off two nukes for his Grandpa’s birthday: a fission, atomic bomb and a thermonuclear, hydrogen bomb.
“The tubby tyrant is thought to have planned the launch of a nuclear device for April 15, in honour of his forebear Kim il-Sung, who founded North Korea in 1948.”
“Kim Il-Sung, also known as the Eternal President of the Republic, died 23 years ago before handing the Hermit Kingdom over to his son Kim Jong-il.”
“And activity at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in North Korea has caused concerns among observers that the rotund ruler may be looking to celebrate his predecessor’s birthday with a bang.”
“A Beijing-based diplomat said: "It concerns me that the North is doing excavation work at two tunnels (of the site).”
Kim Jong-Un ‘wants to launch NUKE to celebrate dead grandfather's birthday’
NORTH Korea’s dumpy despot Kim Jong-un is expected to test his newest nuclear weapon to celebrate his dead grandfather’s birthday.

God-Emperor Trump’s Options for North Korea.
Course of Action A: Nuke ‘em ‘till they glow.
Course of Action B: Kill ‘em all, let God sort ‘em out.
Course of Action C: Protect the innocent, convince the undecided, kill the rest.
What’s really going on? Is there anything crazier than discussing prospective war plans with the news media? No doubt the Pentagon will CC North Korea on all correspondence as well. But hey, it’s a great time to be a conspiracy theorist, isn’t it?
“The National Security Council has presented President Trump with options to respond to North Korea's nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.”
“Both scenarios are part of an accelerated review of North Korea policy prepared in advance of President Donald Trump's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week.”
“The White House hopes the Chinese will do more to influence Pyongyang through diplomacy and enhanced sanctions. But if that fails, and North Korea continues its development of nuclear weapons, there are other options on the table that would significantly alter U.S. policy.”

Trump’s Options for North Korea Include Placing Nukes in South Korea
Pat Buchanan makes a good point. Why is North Korea America’s problem to solve? What stake or responsibility do we have in straightening out that mess? What can we do that we haven’t done already? In Syria too for that matter? Shouldn’t other countries look for their own damn selves? Yeah, I get it there are people doing stuff around the world that really bothers us, like murdering their own subjects, men women and children too, and wearing socks with sandals. I know, when you see that you just want to yell out loud stop it, stop that shit, don’t you? But again is it our lookout to do something about it? Haven’t we reached a point where America needs to look out for itself first? After all America is broke with nearly 20 trillion dollars in federal government debt (this doesn’t include the billions in state and local government debt and private debt in the country as well) AND we are in the midst of a cold civil war at home. A cold civil war that could go hot at any moment. The situation is such then that a new foreign war is definitely NOT going to unite the country. Just the opposite in fact, as the Democrat-Communist Party and even the nevertrumpers in the Republican Party can be expected to do everything they can to sabotage God-Emperor Trump’s efforts and see him removed from office.
“Is Kim Jong Un mad?”
“No. He is targeting us because we have 28,500 troops on his border. If U.S. air, naval, missile and ground forces were not in and around Korea, and if we were not treaty-bound to fight alongside South Korea, there would be no reason for Kim to build rockets to threaten a distant superpower that could reduce his hermit kingdom to ashes.”
“While immensely beneficial to Seoul, is this U.S. guarantee to fight Korean War II, 64 years after the first wise? Russia, China and Japan retain the freedom to decide whether and how to react, should war break out. Why do we not?”
“Would it not be better for us if we, too, retained full freedom of action to decide how to respond, should the North attack?”
“… What would a true “America First” foreign policy look like?”
