BREAKING IN THE LAST 20 MINUTES VIA YONHAP NEWS, SOUTH KOREA:
SEOUL, March 4 (Yonhap) — North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Friday ordered the country’s nuclear weapons to be made ready for use at a moment’s notice.
He also said the communist country will revise its military posture so it can be ready to carry out pre-emptive attacks, stressing that the current situation has become very precarious, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
The announcement comes more than a day after the United Nations Security Council passed a new sanctions resolution penalizing the country for its fourth nuclear test and long-range missile launch earlier in the year.
This could be more bluster or it could be more nonsense. Stay tuned as stock markets in South Korea, China, and Hong Kong will provide a clue.
