Ri Yong Ho, northern Korea’s Foreign Minister and spokesman for Baby Kim, appears to have let the cat out of the bag. Responding to President Donald Trump’s series of remarks about northern Korea and Baby Kim during the week, Ri said
He [Trump] committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets’ visit to the entire US mainland inevitable all the more[.]
Notice that. Ri isn’t only responding to Trump’s current position. All the more is the key phrase here. Northern Korea’s intent all along, its motivation for developing nuclear weapons and delivery systems, has been to attack us; otherwise, there is nothing than which to be all the more.
Just like Iran vis-à-vis Israel.
