Tillerson Talks Of Pre-emptive Stikes On NKorea

Tillerson said the U.S. does not want a military conflict, “but obviously if North Korea takes actions that threaten South Korean forces or our own forces that would be met with (an) appropriate response. If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action that option is on the table.

Only the USA is allowed to have weapons? This open-ended threat could be seen as a declaration of war.

Trump wants to out-crazy Kim. Feeling safe yet?

 

Put that popcorn down. Halfway down the Reuters article we finally learn what’s really happening today to bring the world three steps closer to nuclear war:

THREATS AND WAR GAMES

North Korea’s threats were the latest in an escalating war of words by both sides across the armed Korean border this week.

The North’s unnamed foreign ministry spokesman said it would be entitled to take military action as of March 11 when U.S.-South Korea military drills move into a full-scale phase.

After years of “military exercises” in the disputed islands near the border of North and South Korea, the north has finally upped the ante. If you are incinerated by a wayward nuke next week, you may have wanted to ask Barack and company why it was so fucking important to provoke the N. Koreans and run military mock battles on their border?
