WEB Notes: This lets you know where China stands on the situation if it was not clear enough from past reports. At this point all they need to do is say North Korea launched another missile or performed a nuclear test and they can attack and most of the world will be okay with it. Without any proof whatsoever.
North Korea is nearing the “point of no return” as the reclusive regime prepares for a possible sixth nuclear test, Chinese media reports.
“The game of chicken between Washington and Pyongyang has come to a breaking point,” the Global Times, a nationalist Chinese newspaper managed by the state-run People’s Daily, writes. “If North Korea carries out a sixth nuclear test as expected, it is more likely than ever that the situation will cross the point of no return.”
“All stakeholders will bear the consequences, with Pyongyang sure to suffer the greatest losses,” the outlet warns.
“The North Korea nuclear issue is like a puzzle filled with bombs,” the paper explains, “Once the U.S. [launches] surgical strikes against North Korea’s nuclear and missile facilities, the Pyongyang regime will be forced to make a life-or-death decision.”
