Kim Jong-un may have chemical weapons and the missiles to use them.
And we know what Donald Trump does to countries who use chemical weapons. Let’s just say he doesn’t draw a red line in the sand.
According to CNN,
North Korea may already have the capability to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve agent, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday.
His warning came as analysts said North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test ahead of a key anniversary in the country and following the deployment of a US naval strike group to the region.
“The security situation around our country is getting increasingly severe,” Abe said, who was addressing the Japanese parliament’s diplomacy and defense committee.
“We have just talked about Syria. There is a possibility that North Korea already has a capability to put sarin on warheads to strike the ground,” he said.
Abe did not provide any evidence why he felt North Korea had the capability to equip missiles with chemical weapons.
This story looks like a very serious warning to Kim Jong-un.
There isn’t proof that North Korea has sarin, but it certainly makes a great excuse to send bombs up his rather large and growing tailpipe.
Every major news outlet covered this story. And the threat of biological weapons puts the world on edge.
Assad recently claimed that he didn’t use chemical weapons on his citizens. Perhaps; but he still got bombed. And now he’s on the defensive.
Then one must consider the very uncharacteristic move by China to amass over 150,000 troops on the North Korean border. The Chinese did this “in case” President Trump decided to bomb North Korea. In the time of Obama, China would have stood by their friend North Korea, and dared Obama to do anything.
Frankly, this move signals the world that China has regained respect for America, militarily and economically. They backed President Trump over the past few days on more than one occasion. Further, they have done so very publicly.
These not-so-subtle hints should be taken seriously by Kim Jong-un. I predict they will.
Watch the language of North Korea over the next few weeks. And let’s see how the missile test goes.
