North Korea Says U.S. Has Crossed a "Red Line"

Remember when Obama drew a red line in Syria and warned that if chemical weapons were ever used there that the USA would come in and provide serious consequences?

As we all know, chemicals were used and Obama did nothing.  This is not a good way to draw red lines.

Today we read that North Korea is also talking about red lines and warning that the USA has already crossed one. They are now laying out even further threats and stiff talk against America.

Is the dark kingdom really a threat to USA?  Nope, not on paper.

Has God used godless kingdoms to discipline Israel during OT times?  Yep.

Could even ONE nuclear missile sneaking through our defense and exploding in America potentially knock us back into the 1800's and provide a death toll of 70-90% in less than a year?


North Korea's top diplomat for U.S. affairs told The Associated Press Thursday that Washington "crossed the red line" and effectively declared war by putting leader Kim Jong Un on its list of sanctioned individuals, and said a vicious showdown could erupt if the U.S. and South Korea hold annual war games as planned next month.
Han Song Ryol, director-general of the U.S. affairs department at the North's Foreign Ministry, said in an interview that recent U.S. actions have put the situation on the Korean Peninsula on a war footing.
The United States and South Korea regularly conduct joint military exercises south of the Demilitarized Zone, and Pyongyang typically responds to them with tough talk and threats of retaliation.
Han said North Korea believes the nature of the maneuvers has become openly aggressive because they reportedly now include training designed to prepare troops for the invasion of the North's capital and "decapitation strikes" aimed at killing its top leadership.
Han says designating Kim himself for sanctions was the final straw.
"The Obama administration went so far to have the impudence to challenge the supreme dignity of the DPRK in order to get rid of its unfavorable position during the political and military showdown with the DPRK," Han said, using the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
"The United States has crossed the red line in our showdown," he said. "We regard this thrice-cursed crime as a declaration of war."
Although North Korea had already been heavily sanctioned internationally for its nuclear weapons and long-range missile development programs, Washington's announcement on July 6 was the first time Kim Jong Un has been personally sanctioned.
Less than a week later, Pyongyang cut off its final official means of communications with Washington — known as the New York channel. Han said Pyongyang has made it clear that everything between the two must now be dealt with under "war law."
For now, we can file this one under "wars and rumors of war".
