North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered the military to launch “a powerful retaliatory strike at the enemy, should the enemy intrude even 0.001 millimeters into the waters of the country where its sovereignty is exercised,” the official Korean Central News Agency reported.
“Mr. Kim’s statement, issued during a visit to military units on the country’s southern coast that faces a string of islands manned by South Korean marines, comes a day before the United States and South Korea are scheduled to begin a massive joint military exercise.”
“North Korea and South Korea never agreed on a western sea border when they signed a cease-fire at the end of the Korean War in 1953, and territory around the South Korean border islands remains disputed and volatile.”
Massive military exercises, an undefined border, and a brand new Dear Leader rattling nuclear weapons!
What could go wrong?
And meanwhile our indispensable “ally” or client-welfare-state Israel could launch a full-tilt air war against Iran and drag us into it at any given moment, even though the CIA now admits that there is “no evidence of Iranian nuclear weapons program!”
So we’re rolling the dice all over Asia, and for what?
Non-existent Iranian nukes?
Don’t ask why! Just keep rolling the dice that decide life and death for a hundred million people!
But if you think snake-eyes will never come up anywhere, you’re betting against the casino.
