NORTH KOREA…Young North Korean Soldier Makes Daring Defection At The Joint Security Area Inside The DMZ…

North Korean was shot during the defection and wounded he was found collapsed at the South Korean border. He is alive and being treated. The soldier indicated he defected due to widespread beatings and mental abuse inside his unit. It’s not often to see a defection at or near the Freedom House where North and South Korean actually are feet away from each other and constantly stand and stare in defensive and imposing stances.

United States Response…Secretary Of Defense Mattis,”U.S. will answer any North Korean threat with a “massive military response — a response both effective and overwhelming.”

At this point, United Nations will convene and ¬†perhaps looking at further sanctions. Though, I don’t see how anymore sanctions other than an all out blockade will change North Korea’s continued mission to be a nuclear power. So unless North Korea does something like launching missiles towards Guam things will just continue to follow the all familiar path in dealing with North Korea.
