Even though China has been advising Kim Jong-un to not be stupid, to stop the provocative missile and nuclear tests, King Chubby persists, putting his Hermit Kingdom in grave danger that I am not certain he comprehends.

Kim’s latest provocation comes in the form of his dangerous rhetoric and promises of an “end to the US,” vowing to send “gift packages” to the US, interpreted to mean nuclear missiles.

From The Sun

NORTH Korea has threatened to “end” the US in its latest war-mongering rant.

The B-1 bombers were escorted by South Korean fighter jets as they performed a low-pass over an air base near the South Korean capital of Seoul last month.

But Kim Jong-un’s media branded the move a “hysteric fit” and warned against such “provocations”.

North Korea’s KCNA news agency ranted: “The day the DPRK is provoked means the end of the US.”

Earlier this week, government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun declared Donald Trump was sitting on the “knife edge of life and death” and that he should brace himself for “gift packages” from Kim.

An editorial said: “Every minute and every second, the new reality that US mainland is on the knife’s edge of life and death is forcing US administration to wave a white flag and fundamentally change her North Korea policy.

“If the US still refuses to accept such a realistic demand and doggedly pursue hostile policy against North Korea in order to save face, she will receive unexpected ‘gift packages’ which we will continue to send.”

It is believed the so-called “gift packages” are nuclear missiles.

The UK ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, this week warned that Kim’s nuclear ambitions could be “catastrophic for the world”.

Rycroft said North Korea’s development of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) had significantly extended the threat posed by the secretive regime.

Calling on North Korea to “halt and reverse” its nuclear and missile development programmes, Rycroft said the country should “forgo the path of provocation”.

The ambassador spoke as the UN Security Council backed an escalation of sanctions against Pyongyang.

He said: “North Korea bears full responsibility for the measures we have enacted today.

“By acting in flagrant violation of its legal obligations, by going against the will of the Security Council expressed in countless resolutions, North Korea has chosen the path it now finds itself on.

“It is a path that, at a minimum, will lead to further suffering for its own people and at most could prove to be catastrophic for the whole world.

“It does not have to be this way. North Korea should forgo the path of provocation, forgo the path of further escalation.”

At a meeting in New York the Security Council unanimously approved new sanctions including banning exports worth over a billion US dollars (£770million).

The resolution also bans countries from giving any additional permits to North Korean workers – a crucial source of foreign currency for the regime but a situation labelled “a form of modern slavery” by Rycroft.

The sanctions follow North Korea’s first successful tests of ICBMs capable of reaching the United States last month.
