China has decided to flex their military muscle, parading all the weapons they have, in a show of strength against their global enemies. President Trump is not happy as he displayed in a set of furious tweets. [He said] that China could ‘easily’ solve problems with North Korea but the country does nothing to help the United States except ‘talk’. Trump took to Twitter on Saturday night to call out ‘foolish’ past American leaders who he believes allowed China to make enormous profits in trade while not helping with North Korea. Trump added that China could ‘easily’ solve the growing problem with the country, but instead all China does is ‘talk’. The tweets were a response to Kim Jong-Un’s successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Friday, causing experts to warn leaders the country can now hit major American cities. Hours later, the U.S. then flew two B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula in a show of force after the North Korean missile tests, the Air Force said in a statement on Sunday. ‘North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,’ Pacific Air Forces commander General Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy said in the statement. ‘If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing’. China, the North’s main ally, said it opposed North Korea’s ‘launch activities that run counter to Security Council resolutions and the common wishes of the international community.’ –Daily Mail A foreign ministry statement added: ‘At the same time, China hopes all parties act with caution, to prevent tensions from continuing to escalate, to jointly protect regional peace and stability.’ Trump blasted China tweeting: ‘I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet…’ ‘…they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!’ he said in a subsequent tweet. So what is going to happen now? Are we about to see a global war break out? The signs are all there. It will just take one hot-tempered conversation to launch this whole thing.
