North Korea Pushed To ‘Tipping Point’ By U.S.
After deploying two U.S. bombers near its border, North Korea insists that they are reaching the “tipping point” of nuclear war.
Pyongyang has accused the United States and South Korea of “military provocation,” and said a nuclear war “would inevitably lead to another world war.”
During a rare live-fire drill, US Air Force bombers flew close to the fortified border, which splits North and South Korea, and dropped 900kg bombs over a training range.
North Korea recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States, raising tensions between the two countries.
The state-run North Korean Rodong newspaper recently published an article titled “Don’t play with on a powder keg,” and said the drill suggests that war is likely.
The article said: "The US, with its dangerous military provocation, is pushing the risk of a nuclear war on the peninsula to a tipping point."
It said that the military exercise is a "dangerous military gambit of warmongers who are trying to ignite the fuse of a nuclear war on the peninsula".
"A small misjudgment or error can immediately lead to the beginning of a nuclear war, which will inevitably lead to another world war," it added.
