Wars And Rumors Of Wars – North Korea Edition

Wars And Rumors Of Wars – North Korea Edition by  for End of the American Dream

Which looming global conflict shall I talk about today?  It appears that there won’t be a ceasefire in Ukraine for the foreseeable future, I believe that China is seriously considering a full-blown invasion of Taiwan, and an extremely violent conflict between Israel and Iran could literally erupt at any moment.  But today I think that I will focus on a hotspot that is not getting nearly as much attention as it deserves.  Tensions are rising between North Korea and South Korea once again, and if a shooting war erupts on the Korean peninsula it could easily result in tens of millions of deaths.  North Korea possesses nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and I am entirely convinced that Kim Jong-Un is crazy enough to use them.

South Korea recently elected a new president named Yoon Suk Yeol, and he has taken a much more hawkish tone than his predecessor.  This had already put North Korean leadership on edge, and now new comments from South Korea’s Defense Minister Suh Wook have deeply angered them.  On Friday, he publicly stated that South Korea was “ready and able to launch preemptive strikes” if it appeared that North Korea was preparing an attack…

Suh made his comments on Friday during a visit to South Korea’s strategic missile command, stating that the country is ready and able to launch preemptive strikes should it be determined that the North intends to launch its own attack. North Korea recently began running missile tests again, including its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in around four years.

Of course this has been South Korea’s official policy for a very long time, but making this sort of public declaration at such a critical moment is only going to inflame tensions even more.

The regime in North Korea has survived as long as it has because it is super paranoid and it takes even the slightest perceived threat super seriously.  If the North Koreans get even the slightest hint that South Korea is actually considering a preemptive strike, the North Koreans may decide that it is best to make the first move.

Hopefully it will not come to that, but the North Koreans clearly are not happy right now.

Kim Jong-Un’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong, responded to Suh Wook’s comments in a very angry manner

“The senseless and scum-like guy dare mention a ‘preemptive strike’ at a nuclear weapons state,” Kim Yo Jong said in a statement carried by state media. “South Korea may face a serious threat owing to the reckless remarks made by its defense minister.”

“South Korea should discipline itself if it wants to stave off disaster,” she said.

And another key official in North Korea actually warned that “any slight misjudgment” could potentially lead to “a full-blown war”

Pak Jong Chon, a secretary for North Korea’s ruling Workers party’s central committee, also made his own comments in response to Suh, The Guardian reported. He warned the South that “any slight misjudgment and ill statement rattling the other party under the present situation” could lead to “a dangerous conflict and a full-blown war.” Should South Korea make good on its talk about preemptive strikes, Pak said North Korea will “mercilessly direct military force into destroying major targets in Seoul and the South Korean army” in return.
