Trump Declares North Korea To Be A “State Sponsor Of Terrorism” Hours After They Call Him An “Old Lunatic”

Trump just announced that he is declaring North Korea to be a “state sponsor of terrorism. This can’t be related to what North Korea said earlier today, right?

North Korean state-media lashed out at President Trump as an “old lunatic” who offered a “load of rubbish” about the reclusive regime during his recent swing through Asia.

“A load of rubbish spouted by the old lunatic Trump during his recent visit to South Korea was a total of all nonsense and paradox so far let out by him against the DPRK,” said an editorial in the Minju Joson newspaper on Sunday, referring to North Korea by the initials of its formal name — the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The newspaper also said Trump “insulted” President Kim Jong Un’s government and fanned the flames of aggression. “He insulted the state and social system of the DPRK and the life of its people. This thrice-cursed crime can never be pardoned,” the editorial said.

More from Newsweek:

“It is a stark reality that the old and ailing U.S. is heading toward hell,” the commentary, which was also quoted in the country’s state-run news agency KCNA read. “The mentally deranged money-grabber dared point his finger at the sun,” the Rodong Sinmun commentary says, referring to the country’s leadership.

“This has made him the criminal who is sentenced to death by the army and people of the DPRK. Those who challenge the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system can never find their place to live under this sky. Rabid dog Trump will certainly be made to pay dearly for his hideous crime,” it added.

            I’m sure, IRL, Meloni is both a bottom and very, very tender.

            Where or how can I view this wonder called OZ with Chris Meloni? I’ve seen the pictures, now I am aroused or curious…both actually..

          • Treant

            It was an HBO series. Unless somebody has a better suggestion, I’d say order the first season or two on Amazon (or your local DVD store).

          • Richard, another Canuck

            Thanks Treant.. will check it out!

          • I started watching it but found the series disturbing and couldn’t continue to watch. I admit to being sensitive…but keep in mind it’s very violent and upsetting.

          • Mike__in_Houston

            I had never heard of Oz until learning about it on here. I’ve watched the first three episodes; I didn’t find the violence nearly as bad as I anticipated, from everything I had read (major killings at the end of each of the first two episodes, but not graphically done), although I’m not finding the series as interesting as I had hoped it would be. The hard-core part of me is enjoying the interplay between Schillinger and Beecher (Meloni’s character is named Keller, by the way, or so I have read, but certainly not Beecher), although Beecher doesn’t strike me as being one who would be as quick to, er, roll over, for Schillinger, calling him “Sir” and all of that, as he does.

          • Richard, another Canuck

            Thanks Bob for the heads up. I feel as you do so will likely pass. I just wanted to ‘get to know’ Chris Meloni a bit better. I’ll just use my imagination more as I get to know him.

          • doninkansas

            Watch it on Amazon Prime

          • Uncle Mark

            You could watch the whole series on HBO Now (and other HBO movies/series) for $14.99/month. (I only remember this as I had to update my subscription last week.)

    NoKo is not a state sponsor of terrorism though. They’re a repressive and belligerent nation for sure, and they commit more than a few hostile acts against the US in cyberspace (whoever gave them the idea they could get away with that behaviour?), but do they really give money, manpower and missions to terrorist groups around the world?

    • jerry

      One of their main sources of income is selling arms to groups/nations…but they don’t come anywhere near the amount that we sell to other nations.

    “Mentally deranged money-grabber.”

    I dare Trump to wear that on a tee shirt like his supporters wore “deplorable.”

    • RoFaWh

      Has anyone ever seen Trump in a t-shirt?

      His mother insisted on “formal business wear” at all times, never mind the not-so-minor difficulty that business wear is not formal. To this day, Trump usually wears coat, tie, dress shirt (not a formal shirt with studs), and pants a few steps up from Carhartt work pants.

      This leads to amusements like Trump on the golf course wearing slacks of fabric so thin his undies (and his fat ass) are clearly visible. Not just the much-feared visible panty line, but visible pretty much everything (except, praise God and all the saints, not his mating tackle).

      Formal my eye.

    North Korea has learned that Trump is just a bag of hot air, with about a 0% chance of actually following through on his threats of global thermonuclear war. That or they know that Daddy Vladimir has their back and dangles an otherwise nondescript VCR tape in front of old Donny-boy every now and then as a reminder.

    • RoFaWh

      Trump could kick the bucket any time. He’s over seventy, has a very poor diet of fast food, gets little exercise, and has skin that cries out “unhealthy, unhealthy!”

      Does he show any sign of taking these facts into account? No.

      • HZ81

        What a shame that would be. How horrible. How would we survive? Oh, no. Hope it never, comes to pass—soon.

      As of now, I don’t think so. He’s a (politically) impotent old fuck with very little remaining power. I’m thinking any order to launch would be ignored at worst, or get him shot at best.

      On a related note, we’ve seen how he handles a water bottle…so I’ll bet his table “manners” are downright revolting, and probably include:
      1. Talking with his mouth full…spewing partially-chewed food to the 4 winds.
      2. Gesticulating wildly while holding his knife and fork…
      3. …which he grips in his fists, instead of holding correctly.
      4. Screaming demands at the waiters.
      5. Handing out thinly-veiled threats, liberally, to dinner guests who aren’t interested in investing in the scam he’s currently discussing.
      6. Snatching cake off others’ plates.
      7. Belching loudly and often, without apology.

    When Trump was still running for president, I tried in vain to warn everyone i knew that Trump was easily goaded into acting rashly. I feared what would happen if some foreign power or someone with agenda figured out they could manipulate him and he would fall for it everytime. North Korea has figured out that they can bait trump into attackng them, i am scared that we are all trapped in a giant game of chicken and it wont end unto Trump nukes Korea off the map or gets impeached.

  • JohnJay

    I am afraid things are being set up for a US attack on North Korea next month. Besides Trump’s latest bluster (which is trying to justify it):

    SpaceX is launching a secret satellite that supposedly must happen by Nov 30. This caught the space community by surprise, because such DoD or NRO spy satellites typically are in the works and known for years. Just getting a booster usually takes 2 years to procure. Since SpaceX lands many of its boosters (17 so far, I think), it can quickly refurbish a used booster and launch with several months instead of years. I have no idea what it is, known only as the “Zuma” payload. No agency has taken ownership of it, unlike other military payloads. But I have a nagging feeling this may have something to do with support for a North Korea attack. Typically, a satellite takes 2 weeks to check out and commission once launched… that brings us to the middle of December.

    I also think if we attack, it will not be nuclear. It will be a Shock and Awe type heavy bombing with conventional cruise missiles, and stealth bombers dropping those MOABs (the bunker busters). Because cruise missiles are fairly slow, using them means having a dark, moonless night, or they are subject to being seen and shot down. That brings us to roughly Dec 16-23 to have no moonlight between 11pm and 5 am local time… the typical time for such an attack.

    I hope I’m wrong, but as someone who has followed space launches since the late 1960s… this really feels weird.

    Trump’s right about this one. Kim Jong Un assassinated his older brother back in April using nerve toxin at a international airport – that’s terrorism by any definition, and this in the latest in a long series of unacceptable behavior by Pyongyang.
