This Man is The North Korean General Who Could Start WW3

Nothing President Trump says, or tweets, escapes partisan scrutiny. His “fire and fury” remark about America’s response to North Korean aggression has many of his political opponents accusing him of escalating tensions with the rogue regime. Yet there’s one man in Korea who will likely make the call, if an actual war commences, and it isn’t Kim Jong-un.

Nothing President Trump says, or tweets, escapes partisan scrutiny. His “fire and fury” remark about America’s response to North Korean aggression has many of his political opponents accusing him of escalating tensions with the rogue regime. Yet there’s one man in Korea who will likely make the call, if an actual war commences, and it isn’t Kim Jong-un.

Meet General Kim Rak-gyom.  The smiling solider is often pictured laughing alongside of Kim Jong-un, yet he’s the most senior officer in the North Korean missile program, and the one who would give the orders for any attack.

As the Daily Mail reports, he’s a secretive man highly placed in an often-secretive regime. “In fact news outlets, including those in neighboring South Korea,” The Mail writes, “cannot even seem to agree on which one of Kim Jong-un’s entourage he actually is.

 

He is often quoted, though. After Trump’s “fire and fury” speech, Rak-gyom called Trump’s rhetoric “a load of nonsense.” He echoed the words of Trump’s detractors and called him “senile.”

“Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason,” he told the Yonhap news agency

Sound dialogue isn’t what Rak-gyom has in mind. He is the one making threats against Guam. In his latest, he is reportedly considering sending 4 missiles at U.S. military installations on the island.

Japan, on Wednesday, announced it was prepared to shoot the missiles down. Guam would have an estimated 17 minutes of warning as the missiles made the 2,000 mile flight.
