North Korea didn’t declare war…………….. all the diplomat said was that the United States actions were a declaration of war against the DPRK and that North Korea would be willing to prepare for war should the US continue to behave that way. He then said North Korea was also “preparing for peace” too, meaning an attack is not imminent.
What North Korea said was: “If you come at us we’ll exercise our right to self-defense” NOT “we’re gonna fuck you up. PARK, GET ME THE LAUNCH CODES.” Sure, it sounds the same, but there’s an important distinction.
Plus, talk of war is really common regarding the US-ROK military drills so there’s no reason to believe that this week we’re gonna start seeing nukes flying at Washington and Seoul. If anything… this is more or less normal.
I get it. Memes are funny. But some people are actually really anxious and have friends in South Korea and are pretty scared right now. Fearmongering isn’t helping anyone.
