Kim Jong Un Says North Korea Will No Longer Pursue Reconciliation With South


BBC: North Korea's Kim Jong Un abandons unification goal with South 

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said unification with the South is no longer possible, and that the constitution should be changed to designate it the "principal enemy". 

Mr Kim also said three organisations dealing with reunification would shut down, state media KCNA reported. South Korea's president said it would respond "multiple times stronger" to any provocation from the North. 

The two Koreas have been divided since the Korean War ended in 1953.

I wonder how much this is because of USA meddlers using the bully strategy of "show of strength". Or, is this because of a devolution in the NK state.

I am not Neville Chamberlin in any way. I believe in what USMC General Mattis told the Iraqis, "No better friend, no greater enemy". Couldn't the dipshits from Harvard and Yale running the state department and military see that Kim Jong Un is an inbred, third world, six toed, porch squatting, sister marrying halfwit. Sure he is going blather threats, prance around on a horse, make threats he can't back up. Leave him to his insanity. But no, you assholes have to prod him, run military exercise near his country, make threats. You administrative state assholes deserve Kim Jong Un.
