If he does manage to pull off a successful ICBM test angering every country including China, there is no version where he will come out on top. And if by chance he can pull off whatever his grand master plan is, if he goes too far, one country may not be able to stop him, but countries will act as one against him and North Korea to vindicate any who are lost due to his careless behavior.
USS Thunderbolt Fires Warning Shots At Iranian Vessel The Iranian vessel was within 150 yards of U.S. coastal patrol ship that was in international waters during a coalition exercise in the Persian Gulf.
WASHINGTON, July 25, 2017 — A U.S. coastal patrol ship participating in a coalition exercise in the Persian Gulf fired warning shots today after warning an Iranian naval vessel that was conducting what U.S. Central Command officials called "an unsafe and unprofessional interaction" in international waters.
The Iranian vessel approached within 150 yards of the coastal patrol ship USS Thunderbolt and did not respond to repeated attempts to establish radio communications as it approached, Centcom officials said.
The United States has recalled the USS Carl Vinson to the Korean Peninsula. Today due to the continual provocative behavior by the North Korean Government and upcoming anniversary celebrations which could be problematic.
