Here is some pleasant news about the potential for nuclear conflagration starting in North Korea, China is the North’s financial partner, or parent is a little disturbed by the saber rattling going on in North Korea. Here is some of the story from Al Jazeera News-
Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China opposed “provocative words and actions” from any party in the region and would “not allow troublemaking on China’s doorstep,” in a sharply worded comment on Saturday to UN chief Ban Ki-moon.
The North’s mobilised missiles are reported to be untested Musudan models which are believed to have a range of about 3,000km.
That would cover any target in South Korea and Japan, and possibly even US military bases on the Pacific island of Guam.
The North has no proven intercontinental ballistic missile capability that would enable it to strike more distant US targets, and many experts say it is unlikely it can even mount a nuclear warhead on a mid-range missile.
