Forget the killing of his relatives and anyone else he deems to be deserving, the micro-management of the lives of an entire nation and the austerity and starvation that rule the day in North Korea as the price they pay for becoming a nuclear nation. There’s an even more certain bit of evidence that Kim Jong-un is out of his mind. He’s not only picking a fight with the United States, now he’s going after China too. He’s nuts.
North Korea’s state-run media warned their much larger and more powerful neighbor that its “reckless remarks” on North Korea’s nuclear program are testing its patience and may result in unspecified “grave” consequences.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), in a commentary attributed to Kim Chol, an unknown person, stated China had “crossed the red line” of their alliance and that Pyongyang “will never beg for Beijing’s friendship.” They might want to beg for their forgiveness and patience though, after this “anonymous person’s” threats. China may now have determined it’s time to retaliate in some manner against their problem child, the abnormal fat kid that’s picking fights with everybody, daring them to knock the battery or the chip off of his shoulder.
In February China stopped importing North Korean coal and attempted at that time, at least gave the appearance of doing so, to persuade Pyongyang to comply with international demands led by the US, South Korea and Japan, to end their hostility and weapons testing.
The commentary stated, “China should no longer try to test the limits of the DPRK’s patience. China had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless act of chopping down the pillar of DPRK-China relations.”
It is a very rare occurrence for North Korea to criticize China, an indicator of the level of tensions in the region and between the two nations. China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Thursday that they have dealt with the issue “objectively and fairly,” without elaborating as to just what that means.
Lu Kang, a spokesperson for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said, “China has had a clear and consistent stance regarding the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. Its position on the bilateral friendship between the two countries remains unwavered.”
We’ll see how long that remains the case, if in fact it is. Ultimately there’s no solution for Kim’s mental instability short of removing him from power. He’s just a bit too enamored with his military strength, playing with his missiles like a kid with fireworks on the Fourth of July. He also can’t resist provocation. That’s a recipe for disaster, sooner or later he’s going to force his neighbors and other nations to take action.
