Current Event Cat of the Day: South Korea

Current Event Cat - South Korea Threat

South Korea has raised its alert level to “vital threat” amid growing fears that North Korea is preparing for a missile test. A “vital” level threat is second only to what is used during wartime.

North Korea is believed to have completed preparations for a missile launch after it moved two Musudan missiles to its east coast. US and South Korean sources say that North Korea has one ballistic missile with an estimated 3,000km range that could be launched “any time now.”

Even U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is pessimistic about the whole North Korea situation. On Tuesday he said the Korean crisis may become “uncontrollable” and he urged Kim Jong-un to tone down his “provocative rhetoric” and keep open the joint industrial complex at Kaesong. Yikes.

I never thought it would be possible, but I kind of miss Kim Jong-il...
