If you watch the video, you may notice the island is in a different spot than on the map above. The map is correct.
As a friend of mine put it last night, they’re like babies throwing temper tantrums for not getting their way… He also suggested this could be used as propaganda for Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Il’s son who will be taking his place. They usually twist events to look as though the world trembles at their superior powers, now we also tremble before the son’s power.
I’m still just hoping this doesn’t escalate.
