Have you ever seen a movie where someone is transporting volatile nitroglycerine over rough terrain? Any wrong jostle and the nitro explodes. Then you see some smoky-like fumes coming from the nitro indicating that it’s reaching a very dangerous state of near catastrophic explosion.
North Korea is that volatile nitro that is smoking and one the verge of blowing everything around to smithereens. Japan, South Korea and Hawaii have been conducting public drills in preparation for war.
Now officials in China are warning the nation to prepare for war as they expect North Korea to explode at any time.
(South China Morning Post) – China must be ready for a war on the Korean peninsula, with the risk of conflict higher than ever before, Chinese government advisers and a retired senior military officer warned on Saturday.
Beijing, once seen as Pyongyang’s key ally with sway over its neighbour, was losing control of the situation, they warned.
“Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” said Renmin University international relations professor Shi Yinhong, who also advises the State Council, China’s cabinet.
Shi said US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un were locked in a vicious cycle of threats and it was already too late for China to avert it. At best, Beijing could stall a full-blown conflict…
If, or should I say when, North Korea ignites a war, it will be far deadlier and do a lot more destruction than a wagon load of nitroglycerine would. It will be devastating to the entire Korean peninsula, Japan, China, the United States and most likely Iran and other nations in the Middle East and Asia.
