Still always going to remember August-September 2017 so dearly, that time North Korea tested a hydrogen bomb, threatened Guam, shot a missile over Japan, and """best""" of all was in a pissmatch with Donald Trump.
I used to think that the tensions back in 2015 were extreme. I was seriously concerned they were actually going to do it at the time. But 2017 took the cake. And I mean it really did— Trump was actually gonna do it. They and Venezuela were going to get flattened. More than just about any point in the past 15 years with any other flashpoint, we came outrageously close to disaster. I don't think even the Ukraine crisis this past year was so close to devastation as we were with North Korea in the summer of 2017.
I await the first time they test Biden, but I think it's going to be disappointing because they know Biden's just a more senile version of Obama. Plus they watched what went down in Ukraine for some extra information.
North Korea hits out after U.S. okayed South to build more powerful missiles
North Korea said Monday the U.S. allowing South Korea to build more powerful missiles was an example of the U.S.’s hostile policy against the North, warning that it could lead to an “acute and instable situation” on the Korean Peninsula.
It’s North Korea’s first response to the May 21 summit between the leaders of the United States and South Korea, during which the U.S. ended decades-long restrictions that capped South Korea’s missile development and allowed its ally to develop weapons with unlimited ranges.
The accusation of U.S. policy being hostile to North Korea matters because it said it won’t return to talks and would enlarge its nuclear arsenal as long as U.S. hostility persists. But the latest statement was still attributed to an individual commentator, not a government body, suggesting North Korea may still want to leave room for potential diplomacy with the Biden administration.
