Re: U.S. envoy tells UN: North Korean leader is ‘begging for war’

What the media has failed to mention about the North Korea missile test, is that for the last three weeks, Japan, South Korea and the US have been engaged in large-scale joint-military drills on Hokkaido Island and in South Korea.

These needlessly provocative war games are designed to simulate an invasion of North Korea and a “decapitation” operation to remove the regime. 

Kim Jong-un has asked the US repeatedly to end these military exercises, but the US has refused. 

The US reserves the right to threaten anyone, anytime and anywhere even right on their doorstep. It’s part of what makes the US exceptional.
