As we mentioned some months ago, saber rattling will increase going into the shift. Such war mongering stances have been used throughout mankinds history as a distraction. A country dealing with starvation points across the borders and creates threats, as the populace falls into line, thus. North Korea has been placated with food for some months, but lately had been denied all that they wish. They are doing more than asserting they are a nuclear power, which they are, they are demanding more food, or else. The alternative, per this ploy, is for them to become an arms merchant, selling to Yemen or other terrorist sites. Will this likely become a full blown war? Hardly, even if the food is not provided. This is a flea sneezing on a bulls butt, nothing more.
