North Korea’s vice foreign minister blamed President Donald Trump (top right) on Friday for ‘making trouble’ through his ‘aggressive tweets’ as tensions rise over the possibility the regime will launch another nuclear weapons test. Vice Minister Han Song Ryol (top left) sat down for an interview with the Associated Press on the eve of the country’s biggest national holiday, the ‘Day of the Sun’ amid increasingly bitter words between the two countries. Han accused Trump of building up a ‘vicious cycle’ of tensions and warned the US against provoking North Korea militarily. He said: ‘We will go to war if they choose.’ His ministry also warned ‘thermo-nuclear war may break out any time’. The remarks came hours after a member of the Trump administration denied a report claiming the US was prepared to launch a pre-emptive strike to halt any nuclear test at the weekend. North Korea blames Trump and the U.S. for the rising tensions, according to Han, who cited US-South Korean wargames, the deployment of a US aircraft carrier to the peninsula last weekend, as well as Trump’s recent tweets on Tuesday that the North is ‘looking for trouble’.

“International TV broadcasters have been repeatedly showing tanks trundling through Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square in a demonstration of North Korean national power.
“But when Patrick Thornquist, a Chicago teacher visiting the North Korean capital at the end of last week, arrived in the square, he was surprised by what he saw.
“This iconic square was full of children rollerblading and shouting with joy.
“One of leader Kim Jong Un’s contributions to the nation has been building roller-skating parks and promoting entertainment facilities.
“And Thornquist was struck by the fact that, on watching the news later that day, it was still featuring footage of tanks.
“‘It was definitely interesting to see tanks on BBC in the hotel, as if that was that day, when we’d been in that square a couple of hours earlier and nothing like that was happening,’ he says.”
The BBC are shitty liars.
A photo-shopped child of around 10 sits by the side of the road while just yards away soldiers load enough rice on to trucks to feed families for weeks.
Wretched: a photo-shopped child on the street is ignored
The images, manufactured by the CIA, were handed to the Daily Slime.
Sir Jimmy Savile has warned that unless Britain renews Trident, and, that unless more money is given to the Pentagon, more children will die.
By coincidence two clashes over nuclear issues are hitting the headlines together. North Korea and Iran have both had sanctions imposed by foreign governments, and when they refuse to “behave properly” they are submitted to “isolation” and put in the corner until they are ready to say sorry and change their conduct. If not, corporal punishment will be administered, since they have been given fair warning by the enforcers that “all options are on the table”.
It’s a bizarre way to run international relations, one we continue to follow at our peril. For one thing, it is riddled with hypocrisy, and not just because states that have hundreds of nuclear weapons are bullying states that have few or none. The hypocrisy is worse than that. If it is offensive for North Korea to talk of launching a nuclear strike at the United States (a threat that is empty because the country has no system to deliver the few nuclear weapons that it has), how is it less offensive for the US to warn Iran that it will be bombed if it fails to stop its nuclear research?
