Russia’s warning to USA and North Korea: risk of the worst war in human history

‘War worse than ANY in human history’ Russia’s stark warning to US and North Korea https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/669884/North-Korea-War-Russia-US-Vladimir-Putin-Donald-Trump-Kim-Jong-un-Missile-Nuclear-Test, 30 Dec 17

RUSSIA has warned North Korea and the US are on course for an explosive war of a level “never before seen in human history”. US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un could stumble into a nuclear war of “unprecedented scale”, warned Vladimir Putin’s top diplomat Oleg Burmistrov.

Russia’s so-called ambassador-at-large predicted the start a war could be “unprovoked” and said the US it is “playing with fire” in goading North Korea.

Moscow has repeatedly called for calm in the region as Trump and Kim’s fiery war of words stoked the conflict to horrifying new heights in recent months.

Burmistrov called on the world to do “everything possible” to prevent the war that would spiral into the first use of nuclear weapons since World War 2.

North Korea is feared to be plotting another missile test before the end of the year – with US “missile sniffer” plane Cobra Ball taking flight yesterday amid Kim’s threats.Burmistrov told Sputnik: “[It could be] the catastrophe of the scale, never before seen in human history.

“We are talking not only about a major military conflict but also about a conflict that potentially has a nuclear component.

“Now we are in the face of a major military conflict, which can become a reality if the military solution plan is implemented.

“And we need to do everything possible to prevent this from happening.” Putin’s top man suggested US war drills in the region may be “testing” North Korea and looking for grounds to impose a total economic blockade on Pyongyang.

He described the region as a “powder keg” as military forces continue to march into the Korean Peninsula.

The ambassador added: “The situation on the Korean Peninsula is characterised by an unprecedented level of tension, there is a growing danger of slipping into an armed conflict, unprovoked, but which may begin due to accidental circumstances.”

Burmistrov has previously visited Pyongyang to discuss the nuclear crisis and has also hosted meetings with North Korean officials in Moscow. This week, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov met with US secretary of state Rex Tillerson to discuss North Korea.

Despite separate tensions between Moscow and Washington, the two came to an agreement that they would “never accept” a nuclear-armed Kim.

North Korea is believed to be gearing up to launch a space rocket, which experts have warned could be a cover for another weapons test. Kim should be expected to carry out at least one more launch before the end of the year, North Korea expert Michael Madden told Daily Star Online.

Pyongyang is believed to have long-term ambitions to launch a nuclear missile into the heart of the Pacific.

This test is known as the dreaded Juche Bird – and has been described as Trump’s “red line” that could spark World War 3.

  1. “..& they shall be showered with flowers and greeted as liberators.”

    Seven bullshit wars based on one executive order & the declaration of ‘Freedom Fries..’ seven trillion dollars and the entire planet wallowing in gut-wrenching economic ruin. While a handful of ‘elitists’ drain what little life is left of a near moral-less society.

    We’ve become like a heavily armed whore screaming rape in the middle of an orgy.. even god, can’t help us now.
