Yeah, Yeah...CNN...I know.
But interesting as well:
U.S. reducing rhetoric that feeds North Korean belligerence
Washington (CNN) -- Recent announcements of American military deployments in response to belligerent statements by North Korea may have contributed to
escalating tensions between the two countries, Pentagon officials told CNN Thursday in explaining an effort to reduce U.S. rhetoric about the
reclusive state. "We accused the North Koreans of amping things up, now we are worried we did the same thing," one Defense Department official
I have hard time believing the US is admitting to poking the bear. They were 'Surprised' at how their releases angered and provoked NK? I don't think
According to the official, some Pentagon officials were surprised at how U.S. news releases and statements on North Korea were generating world
headlines and therefore provoking a Pyongyang response. "We are absolutely trying to ratchet back the rhetoric," the official said. "We become part
of the cycle. We allowed that to happen."
But could it actually be that War has been averted? Have cooler heads prevailed? Or is this an attempt to remove themselves from blame because it's
too late and they can always say: "We tried".
Let's hope that whatever the reason, there is truth to this. Kim is a nasty little guy but Obama is also a Bully so let's cross our fingers on this
