Neither North Korea nor The USA are taking the current lull in provocations, to allow the Olympics to take place, seriously.
The North will hold a massive military parade on the 8th of February (the day before the Winter Olympics are opened)designed to scare the shit out of everyone.
Meanwhile the USA has just pulled its much touted choice for ambassador to South Korea, Victor Cha. The announcement took many by surprise, as Cha had passed all the security clearances and had been nodded in by the South.#breaking #exclusive Diplomatic sources tell @CNN North Korea is planning to show off dozens of long-range missiles next week to “scare the hell out of the Americans.” https://t.co/glJqq5YcYI— Will Ripley (@willripleyCNN) January 31, 2018
Why was he booted from the role?
It seems that despite being regarded by many as a hawk, when he was asked if he would manage the evacuation of American citizens from South Korea he balked at the idea of the much touted "bloody nose" attack on the North.
I shall leave you all ponder the question who will evacuate the South Koreans from the South and the Japanese from Japan, in the event that things get out of hand.
However, be in no doubt, if the Olympics do take place without incident there is going to be one hell of a punch up afterwards. That is, sadly, very clear!
