It looks like Dennis Rodman’s diplomacy failed. According to The New York Times, North Korea has cut off the last remaining military phone lines with South Korea, lines that have been used to control border crossing. Lines to the Red Cross and the United States military command were previously been terminated by the North Koreans. Most agree that this could be a prelude to the ceasing of all border crossings.
In the past 48 hours, North Korea has gone on “highest alert” of readiness to strike the United States or South Korea. North Korea has also threatened that any military drills by the U.S. or South Korea will be met by “substantial military actions.”
“There do not exit any dialogue channel and communications means between the D.P.R.K. and the U.S. and between the North and the South. Not words but only arms will work on the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces. Under the situation where a war may break out any moment, there is no need to keep North-South military communications,” North Korea said on Wednesday.
