ALERT: After N. Korea Launches BALLISTIC MISSILE- Rex Tillerson Makes 5 Word STONE COLD Announcement

The response of America’s chief diplomat to North Korea’s latest missile launch was an abrupt departure from the usual — which may be a turning point, analysts in Asia say.

The statement from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson totaled 23 words: “North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”

President Trump and his administration have clearly exhausted every diplomatic avenue as well as sanctions against North Korea.  Tillerson’s statement shows that we are done trying to negotiate and provide North Korea with a way to avoid a conflict.

“It seems Tillerson purposefully issued a short statement to send a tough signal,” said Kim Sung-han, a professor at Seoul’s Korea University and a former South Korean deputy foreign minister. “He is making it clear that, no matter what North Korea does, the United States won’t commit to direct negotiations unless Pyongyang shows real willingness for disarmament.”

President Trump has been directly hammering down on China because he believes China can force North Korea to stand down and disarm their ICBM nuclear arms.

Trump is likely to urge China’s leader to take up stronger role in pressuring the North to abandon its nuclear ambitions, and Tillerson’s statement is a way of stressing it’s time for action on North Korea, not just talk.

Kim Jong Un by his own actions, has no intentions of negotiating nor disarming North Korea’s missiles and nuclear weapons.

Every North Korean nuclear test and missile launch reminds the United States and its allies of the limited options they have on Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions as well as how they have been completely ignored.

The United States has played by the world “PC” book and worked down the check off list on ways to avoid conflict and allow North Korea to save face.  We seem to have only a few options left before boots on the ground go in and liberate North Korea.

Tillerson in a visit to China last month declared an end to the Obama administration’s “strategic patience” policy to wait out Pyongyang until it caves and decides to denuclearize, but the Trump administration has yet to reveal any meaningfully different approach.

Narushige Michishita, an expert from Tokyo’s National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies, said Trump’s efforts to “sound scary” won’t work with Pyongyang and Beijing if he fails to back his words with action.

“The Trump administration’s credibility will be undermined if it fails,” he said.

That holds more truth to it than people realize, President Trump has to end the DPRK and soon, it will define his Presidency one way or the other and you can bet he knows it.
