America’s conflict with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has been unfolding like a complex game of chess.
Both sides are engaging in moves and countermoves designed to outsmart their opponent, but neither has engaged in full out aggression as of yet.
Currently both Trump and Un are displaying their military strengths in the Korean peninsula. While Kim Jong Un conducts his missile tests, President Trump drops bombs on ISIS and prepares to move our Navy within shooting distance of North Korea. Both are clearly trying to intimidate the other into standing down.
The question is, who will blink first?
Should the conflict become violent, President Trump may have an ace in the hole.
Rumors are circulating that members of the elite Seal Team 6, the same squadron that took down Osama bin Laden, are being moved into Korean territory.
From Western Journalism:
Although Navy officials downplayed reports in March that the unit, which was responsible for the takedown of Osama bin Laden, was participating in South Korean training exercises, media reports continue to mention the SEALs are participating in drills designed to simulate an attack on the top leaders of North Korea, including dictator Kim Jong-Un.
American military officials would only say that “ground, air, naval and special operations” are working with South Korean counterparts in “several joint and combined field training operations” involving up to 17,000 troops.
These special operations enable the American and South Korean troops to train for scenarios where they must counter aggression from the North. As tensions continue to rise in the region, these drills are becoming all the more necessary.
Kim Jong Un has made it clear he will die before he bows to American aggression, but Trump refuses to sit back like the Obama administration did while this dictator continues to threaten global stability.
Our military was leashed under Obama’s poor leadership, but Trump and General Mattis are refusing to do the same. It’s anyone’s guess what will happen should North Korea continue to conduct its missile tests.
But knowing our best troops are in the region should make it difficult for Kim Jong Un to sleep at night.
