Q: What does the shrieking left have in common with North Korea?
A: They both say everything is Trump’s fault.
North Korea is now threatening to ignite a nuclear war. Considering they have a nutcase in charge and actual nuclear armaments? That’s a bad combination.
And Russia is calling for restraint.
And China is threatening to hammer anyone who incites a war, claiming that there will be no winners. (Flights between Beijing and Pyongyang have been suspended.)
President Donald Trump’s ‘troublemaking’ and ‘aggressive’ tweets have pushed the world to the brink of thermo-nuclear war, North Korea warned today.
Pyongyang’s Vice Minister Han Song Ryol accused Trump of building up a ‘vicious cycle’ of tensions and warned the US against provoking North Korea militarily. He said: ‘We will go to war if they choose.’
He added the country would continue developing its nuclear program and conduct its next nuclear test whenever its leaders see fit.
In response China warned that war could break out ‘at any moment’, while the Kremlin today called for ‘restraint’ as tensions escalate between North Korea and the United States.
Air China flights between Beijing and Pyongyang will be suspended from Monday, according to reports in China.
Han’s comments come as tensions rise over the possibility Kim Jong-un’s regime will launch another nuclear weapons test tomorrow as North Korea marks the national holiday Day of the Sun, commemorating the birth of the country’s founding father Kim Il Sung.
North Korea’s military said it would ‘ruthlessly ravage’ the United States if Washington chose to attack. The Korean People’s Army statement boasted that US military bases in the South ‘as well as the headquarters of evils such as the (South Korean presidential) Blue House would be pulverized within a few minutes’. —Dailymail
Russia and China advocating for peace? Strange days indeed.
China’s foreign minister Wang Yi said today there would be ‘no winner’ in any war, as tensions mount with the US.
He told reporters in Beijing: ‘Dialogue is the only possible solution.’
Wang stated: ‘Lately, tensions have risen with the US and the ROK (Republic of Korea in the South) on one side, and the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in the North) on the other, and one has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment.
‘If a war occurs, the result is a situation in which everybody loses and there can be no winner.’
Wang said that whichever side provoked a conflict ‘must assume the historic responsibility and pay the corresponding price’. —
