H/T Weasel Zippers
China warned Wednesday that North Korea and the United States were like two trains racing towards a “head-on collision,” calling on both sides to apply the brakes and avert a security crisis.
Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s warning came after a cascade of events that has sent regional tensions soaring, including provocative North Korean missile tests and annual US-South Korean wargames that infuriate Pyongyang.
Beijing itself is particularly concerned over an American missile-defence system being rolled out in South Korea as a shield against the North Korean threat, but which Wang said also “undermines China’s strategic security.”
Why would a defensive missile shield bother China or little bitch brother North Korea? HMMMM
He called on North Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the US and South Korea halting the military exercises.
How about this. The next missile North Korea sends up will be shot down, and any aggression towards South Korea or Japan will result in severe military consequences for North Korea.
