More Saber-Rattling From Kim Jong-Un
North Korea’s Boy-King issues a somewhat bellicose outburst, which should surprise nobody in the wake of a family purge that suggests ongoing infighting and instability among the power elite within the “hermit kingdom“:
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said the Korean peninsula will be engulfed by ”massive nuclear disaster” if war breaks out there again, warning the US it will not be safe in the event of a conflict.
”If the war breaks out again in this land, it will bring about a massive nuclear disaster and the US will never be safe,” Kim said in his New Year message, broadcast on state television.
”We are faced with a dangerous situation in which a small, accidental military clash can lead to an all-out war.”
Mr Kim added he would not beg for peace and vowed to protect the impoverished but nuclear-armed North with strong self-defence measures against enemies.
