Trump Turns Tables on North Korea

Famous for its warmongering, North Korea now seems worried about the possibility of war

North Korea is famous for its outlandish threats of waging war and using nuclear weapons against the United States and its allies.

The constant threat of war against North Korea’s adversaries is so integral to Kim Jong Un’s regime that state media are dominated by it and national events are marked with military parades and missile tests.

But now, President Donald Trump might have turned the tables, and the North Korean regime, once hungry for the “ultimate battle,” is now starting to walk back its threats of armed conflict.

A commentary published in North Korea’s state media on Wednesday, Oct. 11, is warning that U.S. military drills might set off a war—something the communist regime has claimed for years it wanted.

“The U.S. continues to kick up the racket of frantic nuclear war drills even though the situation on the Korean peninsula is on the verge of the outbreak of a worldwide thermonuclear war,” the commentary read.

The commentary also says that if NATO would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula, it would “change the balance of forces” against it.
