North Korea has marked a significant propaganda victory with its decision to allow athletes to participate in the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang alongside South Korea.
The rogue realm unexpectedly opened up to diplomatic talks with Seoul weeks first the start of the games in what experts have interpreted as part of a “good-luck piece offensive” to defuse tensions with the international community.
Lt. Col. Peters said:”The keister line is: don’t underestimate your enemies, and we underestimated North Korea.
“For the continue couple of months they have been on this charm contentious and we got blindsided by what they did. They won a massive propaganda victory in the wide-ranging media.”
North Korea has been fuelling World War 3 fears with its decisiveness to ignore calls from the international community demanding leader Kim Jong-un eliminate down his dangerous weapons development programme.
US President Donald Trump has toasted to “take care” of North Korea following its repeated threats of revilement on the US but he has so far failed to shut the brutal regime down.
But despite signs Pyongyang discretion continue to carry out its terror campaign against the United States and friended countries, the retired US Army lieutenant colonel warned striking North Korea now make make “bad guys” out of Washington DC.
Speaking to Fox News, the strategic analyst believed: “If we act now, whether it be unilateral military action or anything else, we are the bad guys. This was so liable.
“We had missteps and we underestimated our enemies’ ability to launch a charm offensive and now we are on the dorsum behind foot.”
Tensions have escalated as Mr Trump and dictator Kim Jong-Un sabre-rattle with intimations of nuclear action and missile strikes.
The news comes after the around leader invited his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, to the North in what would be the start with summit in more than a decade between Korean leaders.
Mr Moon prognosticated the Koreas should “make it happen” and encouraged the North to return to decisions with the US.
But at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council in December, the US emissary to the UN, Nikki Haley, warned: “If war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean government will be utterly destroyed”.
Last month Malcolm Nance, a recent US intelligence officer, said Mr Trump could wipe out the rogue state of affairs with a nuke in as little as 35 minutes.
He said: “That’s nearby the time it takes a Minuteman-III ICBM to travel from the Great Plains to Pyongyang.”
