What is the point of sparking a self-destructive conflagration that would spoil all in the Korean Peninsula?
It makes no sense at all, especially not to the leaders who would be the first to go.
"Now that we possess mighty nuclear power to protect ourselves from US nuclear threat, we will respond without the slightest hesitation to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike, and we will emerge victor in the final battle with the United States," the North's foreign ministry said in a statement.
The North will celebrate the 85th anniversary of the foundation of its Korean People's Army on Tuesday and has marked important events in the past by launching missiles or conducting nuclear tests."
China must curtail this nonsense with an intrusive intervention that is far more than halting the hauling of coal. Regime change is in order, and China must pull the trigger as only they can without blasting the region away.
