The US and its Allies are Putting the “Screws” to North Korea
The word has come down: China let North Korean leader Kim Jong Un know that he has just choices, they are as follows:
- Continue your present path in pursuing a nuclear arsenal and face imminent death or
- Back off and preserve your happy lifestyle, meaning comply or die.
The US and its allies are putting the screws to North Korea. Most importantly, China putting the screws to North Korea and basically threatening this current regime.
China is saying . . . your regime will be eliminated and most likely you’ll end up dying in a confrontation.”
China let North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un know that his ruling family is in a “pretty good position, much better than their populous. And it would be in their interest to continue the current situation where they’re ruling.”
And if they put their military ambitions aside . . . they can live a pretty good life. The rest of the North Koreans will have a miserable life, but the ruling class will continue to be OK.
China has really awakened to the threat North Korea poses with its continued missile tests and sable-rattling about launching nuclear weapons.
And China has come to realize that it is in their best interest to put the lid on North Korea, on their military program and those types of things.
A destabilized Korean Peninsula, a destabilized Asia is not at all in China’s best interest.
Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday during his visit to Japan that the US will not relent until it ensures the Korean Peninsula is free of nuclear weapons.
After meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other leaders, VP Pence told reporters President Donald Trump is confident economic and diplomatic pressure may persuade North Korea to cooperate.
“It is our belief by bringing together the family of nations with diplomatic and economic pressure we have a chance of achieving a freeze on the Korean Peninsula,” VP Pence said.
“We will not rest and will not relent until we obtain the objective of a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.”
Do not expect a war.
