Pence: U.S. Ready to Use ‘Overwhelming’ Force in Response to North Korea

Keeping in lockstep with the “evil North Korea” narrative, Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday that if Kim Jong-un decides to attack a neighboring country, the United States will respond with an “overwhelming” use of force.

Speaking in Tokyo — and, frankly, sounding very much like Kim himself — Pence said:

“Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and beat any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response.”

His comments come as the Trump administration deals with a blunder of epic proportions, having falsely led the world into believing a contingent of U.S. naval firepower was heading for the Korean Peninsula when, in fact, it was heading in the opposite direction.

Those warships have since been redirected and are now actually heading to the peninsula.

But the vice president’s most notable words on Wednesday were the ones he said about the nation in which he was speaking, Japan.

Pence said he had spoken to Donald Trump, and that by 2020, 60 percent of the U.S. naval fleet will be in the region.

“The United States will strengthen its presence in the Asia-Pacific,” said Pence. “Japan will assume a larger role and responsibility in our alliance in the years ahead.”

So the plan, says the vice president himself, is a U.S.-led military buildup in the region. And since China, the big dog on that particular block, isn’t going anywhere in the foreseeable future, interesting days may indeed lie ahead.

That’s long-term. For now, it’s important to realize that the North Korea narrative won’t last forever, and then U.S. officials will be left to devise additional excuses to park their guns in the waters of the Asia-Pacific.

That’s when the next narrative will begin.
