President Donald Trump has now taken the tensions with North Korea to a new level, tweeting on Friday morning that the US military is in position to attack North Korea at a moment’s notice.

“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely,” the president wrote. “Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

Meanwhile, North Korea announces a plan to fire four missiles near the US Pacific territory of Guam will be ready for Kim Jong Un’s consideration in days, state media has reported, as an unprecedented exchange of military threats between Washington and Pyongyang intensifies.

So let’s review, we have here two powerful world ‘leaders’ with egos larger than the countries they control, both vowing publicly to start military action against the other. Where does this end? Can we really imagine that after such public vows these that either of these men will just ‘drop it?’
