US: all options are on the table with N. Korea

United Nations -- The United States made it clear that "all options are on the table" when it comes to dealing with the rogue nation of North Korea and their tubby leader Kim Jong Un, and dismissed China's suggestion that there be a "dual suspension" of U.S. and South Korea military drills and Pyongyang's missile and nuclear tests.

As if Kim is going to stop missile tests if we stop military exercises.

"We are not dealing with a rational person," U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said of Kim Jong Un, when the UN Security Council discussed North Korea's launch of four ballistic missiles on Monday. 

"It is an unbelievable, irresponsible arrogance that we are seeing coming out of Kim Jong Un at this time," she added.

Haley explained that the Trump administration was reassessing how it would handle Pyongyang and that "all options were on the table."

"We are making those decisions now and we will act accordingly," she said.

Corpulent Kim's military had four missiles fired into the sea off Japan's coast where they landed less than 200 miles from their shores. He claimed it was in response to the annual U.S.-South Korea military drills, but the north sees it as a preparation for war.

The communist dictatorship has fired dozens of missiles to the glee of chubby Kim and conducted two of its five nuclear tests in the past year in clear defiance of the impotent UN and their empty resolutions.

On Wednesday, North Korea's Foreign Ministry sent a statement to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warning that it would "reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people's happiness in case the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK."

Wang Yi the Chinese foreign minister said that the tests by the North and drills in the South were causing tension to increase like two "accelerating trains coming toward each other." That's when he suggested a dual suspension. 

But if the U.S.-South Korea alliance is a train, North Korea is a Prius. 

"We have to see some sort of positive action taken by North Korea before we can ever take them seriously," Haley said when questioned about Beijing's proposal, adding that the drills are held annually for 40 years and North Korea was always notified.

The Security Council strongly condemned North Korea's missile launches and expressed concern over their "increasingly destabilizing behavior," which should scare the crap out of them and get them to stop. After all, they've been under sanctions since 2006 over their banned nuclear and missile programs.

French U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said his country is also working on proposing new EU "restrictive measures" on North Korea, but did not give details.

On Tuesday, the U.S. began deploying the first elements of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system to South Korea, which China opposes because they do not want South Korea to have the capability to defend itself from the fat lunatic up north.
