Only so many times can you cry ‘wolf’ before the people ignore you.
For many years, Kim Jong-il did so. He was entirely bent on making himself bigger than life when he was, in fact, smaller than Napoleon.
North Korea’s leader had a little brother complex that was more damaging to its people than his penchant for stealing the grain left for his people by United Nations troops. China always treated them like the crazy uncle they left locked up in the attic.
The fact is, though, North Korea is no longer living under the thumb of that leader.
They have moved on to a much more dangerous and volatile man: Kim Jong-un, the son of the former leader. And you know, he has already tried to bully President Donald Trump, and it didn’t work.
Still, Jong-un is not one to cry ‘wolf’. He is, in fact, the wolf himself, which is why Trump is reacting.
“Pyongyang’s Korea Central News Agency reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has stressed ‘a need for preparation for a fight’.
He listed guidelines to strike South Korea and the US ‘mercilessly’.
Donald Trump is reportedly planning to send nuclear bombers to the Korean peninsula as tensions in the region reach breaking point.
North Korea and the US have been teetering on the brink of war for months after Kim Jong-un carried out a series of controversial missile launches.
Earlier this week, trigger-happy Kim pushed his luck once more when he fired off four ballistic missiles into the seas near Japan.
Now US military chiefs are reportedly planning to fly in B-1 and B-52 bombers – built to carry nuclear bombs – to show America has had enough, according to the Korea Times.

Secretary of Defence James Mattis said the US ‘remains steadfast in its commitment’ to the defence of the South, according to Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt Jeff Davis.
Capt David said: ‘He further emphasised that any attack on the United States or its allies will be defeated and any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a response that is effective and overwhelming.‘”
We can only pray that some sort of clarity will somehow pass over Jong-un’s mind and eyes and allow him to see the folly that he poses for his people. …we’re just not holding our breath.
It is an absolute shame that a man who is quite obviously insane can be at the helm of a ship where so many millions of lives are on the line.
And it doesn’t help that Obama totally decimated our armed forces, including the proud Screaming Eagles. We’re less prepared for this than we should be, but Trump is stepping up and Mattis knows what he’s doing.
In the end, however, we should also pray for our leaders, that they have God’s guidance to make the wise decisions.
