“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Mr Trump told reporters at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

…I don’t know if the above disproves my post on Monday (about the 72nd anniversary of the first use of an atom bomb at Hiroshima) and my suggestion that it was unlikely that a conflict would break out in relation to the DPRK. Or perhaps not given I wrote:

Granted there is the DPRK, but that is – to some degree sabre rattling. That state has, it appears, a very limited arsenal (ranging between 13 and 30 weapons) of what seem to be atomic rather than hydrogen bombs. None of this is to be dismissed but their value is as a deterrent rather than as an offensive weapon. And one suspect that were they to use but one that value would be finished, that they would meet massive retaliation.

Still, it is disquieting, even when delivered by one whose penchant for rhetoric above all else is well known.
