Temperatures in the North Korea nuclear standoff were rising.

The media was smearing Donald Trump by claiming he was blustering America into nuclear war.

But the truth about the prospects of war will shock you.

Kim Jong Un recently backed down in his threat to launch missiles near the U.S. territory of Guam.

Trump applauded the move as it would have led to catastrophic consequences.

Now Americans are learning more about the prospects of war since Jong Un backed down on his threats.

The President of South Korea has stated that there will be no war on the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea has also said the U.S. cannot launch a military strike without their permission.

But the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff stated that while the U.S. didn’t need permission, they would consult with their allies.

Bloomberg reports:

“The U.S.’s top general declined to comment on South Korean leader Moon Jae-in’s assertion that he needed to sign off on a war against North Korea, saying President Donald Trump had the final say on a unilateral military strike.

“Any military action taken on the Korean peninsula would be in consultation with our allies,” General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters in Beijing on Thursday. Asked about potential unilateral U.S. action, he said “that’s purely speculative and a decision to do that would be by the president. We certainly haven’t had a conversation about that to date.”

Earlier Thursday, Moon sought to ease concerns in South Korea over a potential war, saying Trump had agreed to first seek approval.

Bottom of Form

“Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by the Republic of Korea,” Moon told reporters in Seoul, referring to his country’s formal name. “The U.S. and President Trump promised no matter what options they use, they will sufficiently consult with South Korea and get consent. This is a firm agreement between South Korea and the U.S. People can be assured and trust that there will be no war.”

Thanks to Donald Trump’s skillful leadership, the crisis with North Korea has backed away from the brink of nuclear war.

His combination of strong language and diplomatic maneuvering left them in a position where they would be isolated if they had proceeded with firing missiles at Guam.

So Kim Jong Un backed down.

And now the odds of war with North Korea are decreasing.
