Congressman demands early convening of the lower house to deal with North Korea

We are talking about the consideration of the bill on the restriction of the use of nuclear weapons (Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act), which was developed in January 2017.

If he gets the majority of votes, before order the use of lethal weapons, the US President is obliged to obtain the approval of Congress.

Conditions must be satisfied only in those cases when the state wants to use the weapon first, that is, not in response to enemy’s aggression.

“It is extremely important to the administration trump has exhausted all diplomatic options before resorting to military force. But instead, the President trump made a dangerous situation even worse,” writes Cicilline, Recalling, in particular, and on the Friday tweet to the President.

Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2017

«The military solution is now fully developed and ready to use if North Korea will act irrationally. I hope Kim Jong UN will choose another path!».

“North Korea should no longer threaten the United States. They will face such fire and fury, which the world has never seen,” and this phrase trump said earlier in the week.

After a couple of days, on Thursday, the President told reporters that his previous statement was “stiff enough”. But David Cicilline did not feel this calling in his letter to the President’s words “destructive.”

However, in an analytical article on the website of The Washington Post suggested that the rhetoric trump is just a scare tactic.

And for proof you need look no further: the arguments can be found even in Twitter of the President.

Immediately after his tweet about the “readiness” Donald trump did a repost of one of the entries on the official website of the Pacific command of the US armed forces.

#USAF B-1B Lancer #bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill USFK’s #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so

— U.S. Pacific Command (@PacificCommand) August 11, 2017

«Bombers B-1B Lancer, located on GUAM, ready to fulfill the mission #FightTonight command of the U.S. Armed forces in Korea (USFK), if required.»

The catch is hastega, says the author. The fact that the motto of the «struggle today» (fight tonight) has for many years used as USFKand the Pentagon.

The motto also appeared in the speeches of Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who, as acting President, visited to South Korea.

“Our Korean and American forces that are here on duty, well trained, closely coordinated, fit to fight today [fight tonight] and every night,” said Barack Obama, visiting Seoul in 2014.

“Our citizens are safer because you’re ready to fight that fight tonight]” – said George Bush in the Korean city of Osan in 2005.

Moreover, on Thursday the U.S. Secretary of defense James Mattis responded very cautiously, when, during a meeting with reporters, he was asked to comment on trump’s phrase about the “fire and fury”.

“My duty is to have military options if they need it,” – said the Minister.

After analyzing all the above, The Washington Post concluded that the Pacific command, rather just an indication of their willingness to fight if necessary, prepared to do battle in the coming days.
