N. Korea Blows Up Liaison Building And Now They Are Making Threats
North Korea has been going through some changes ever since Kim Jong Un went under the knife and pretty much disappeared when it comes to public appearances. The Korean dictator was rumored to have died during surgery and then miraculous he was claimed to be fine, yet now his little sister, Kim Yo-jong, is taking a more public stance on everything and seems to be running the show... Regardless of who is really leading the country, they look like they are no longer interested in peace talks with South Korea and showed the world that by blowing up the liaison building used for peace talks. There has also been threats that North Korea plans to take over the demilitarized zone.
"The North - which has a long track record of pressuring South Korea when it fails to extract concessions from the United States - has repeatedly bashed the South in recent weeks over declining bilateral relations and its inability to stop leafleting by defectors and activists.
Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency said the North destroyed the office to "force human scum and those who have sheltered the scum to pay dearly for their crimes" - apparently referring to North Korean defectors who for years have floated anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border.
The inter-Korean liaison office was established in 2018 as part of a series of projects aimed at reducing tensions between the two Koreas.

"South Korean defense ministry warned of "strong response" to any North Korean military provocations.
The destruction of the office "broke the expectations of all people who hope for the development of inter-Korean relations and lasting peace on the peninsula", deputy national security adviser Kim You-geun told a briefing.
"We're making clear that the North is entirely responsible for all the consequences this might cause," he said.
Later on Tuesday, the United States urged North Korea to avoid further "counterproductive" steps.
"The United States fully supports the ROK's efforts on inter-Korean relations and urges the DPRK to refrain from further counterproductive actions," a State Department spokesperson said, referring to the South and North by their official names."
It Looks like the little sister may be taking the helm soon and it seems she is not aiming for peace. We are allied with South Korea so North Korea better calm down or we may soon be helping South Korea bring peace to the peninsula.
