Did North Korea just Threaten China?

This story was cross-posted from Jeff Dunetz at the Lid…

If there were any doubts about the sanity of Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s chubby little despot, this should eliminate any doubt that the guy’s crayon box is missing a few colors…Un is a nut job who’s now threatening his country’s only remaining ally and one of the strongest nations in the world – namely, China.

The North Koreans made the threat via an op-ed written by a person named Jong Phil in the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA),apparently as a reaction to China’s threats of sanctions should crazy Un test a nuclear device.

The commentary read in part:

Not a single word about the U.S. act of pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war after introducing hugest-ever strategic assets into the waters off the Korean peninsula is made but such rhetoric as ‘necessary step’ and ‘reaction at decisive level’ is openly heard from a country around the DPRK [North Korea] to intimidate it over its measures for self-defense,” the commentary’s introduction in English read.

“Particularly, the country is talking rubbish that the DPRK has to reconsider the importance of relations with it and that it can help preserve security of the DPRK and offer necessary support and aid for its economic prosperity, claiming the latter will not be able to survive the strict ‘economic sanctions’ by someone.”

“If the country keeps applying economic sanctions on the DPRK while dancing to the tune of someone after misjudging the will of the DPRK, it may be applauded by the enemies of the DPRK, but it should get itself ready to face the catastrophic consequences in the relations with the DPRK,” it said.“

Wow China to face “catastrophic consequences in the relations with the DPRK.” If it wasn’t for the Chinese govt. more of the North Korean people would starve.

In a related story President of China Xi Jinping came close to peeing his pants when he heard the North Korean threat…not out of fear but because he couldn’t stop laughing.
