4 DAYS TO GET YOUR DIPLOMATS OUT WARNS NORTH KOREA – North Korean leaders supplied a statement to all Governments with Embassies within their borders to leave by the 10th April 2013 as they will no long guarantee their safety after this deadline.
Many Western Governments are cautious to say whether this is a prelude to war but are increasingly concerned over the events taking place.
North Korean leaders have also given Aid Organisations a warning to leave as the country begins, what is seen as, a full closure of its borders and will close itself off from any further constructive diplomatic talks.
North Korea earlier in the week moved a barrage of mid-range Musudan missiles to its east coast which could directly threaten Japan and American’s Pacific bases.
Both Russia and China, close allies of the segregated state, have called upon Pyongyang to take a step back and reconsider its position however North Korea has stated that the UN sanctions, lead by the American’s, have taken steps too far and that it is now time to destroy American imperialism and wipe America off the map – something the North Korean leaders appear convinced their military might is capable of.
The British Government has yet to remove diplomatic staff from their Embassy in Pyongyang however they have reported that a contingency plan is in place for an emergency evacuation if they are unable to talk this through with North Korea.
Yesterday David Cameron again fought with the House of Commons over its budget for the Trident Nuclear Deterrent program stating that it is times like this that we must insure the UK is safe from the possible threat of a nuclear war and it is unclear, if North Korea continues to segregate itself, how long it will be before they could amass a nuclear arsenal that could pose a real threat to peace
American bombers have been surveying the area and while it is confident that any aggression by North Korea can be dealt with it is seriously concerned for its allies, including South Korea and Japan.
Yesterday South Korea ordered the deployment of two warships to the east coast peninsular in order to monitor the situation of the North Korean missile build-up.
Both South Korea and America agree to try and calm the situation by toning down public announcements of the joint military exercise; which has caused the North Korean’s to react adversely to in the past few weeks.
There is no doubt that Kim Jong Un and his government have engaged in a lot of bellicose rhetoric over the last few weeks and certainly the saber-rattling has ruffled many features, but will the acuminate in war?
Many analysts agree that while Pyongyang does have missile and a sizable army it is unlikely to risk all-out war. There is no doubt that the people of North Korea have to be shown that North Korea is strong and that it is capable of destroying its enemy, that being the United States.
We can only hope that things will calm down and that Kim Jong Un, if he is indeed in control of his military, will take a step back and take his finger off the trigger long enough to be able to go back to diplomatic talks.
