N. Korea says Trump has declared war on them.

via CNN
North Korea's foreign minister said Donald Trump has declared war on his country.

The US President appeared to threaten regime change over the weekend, tweeting to say if the country's foreign minister echoed the thoughts of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un they "won't be around much longer."

Ri Yong-ho said Pyongyang reserves the right to take countermeasures, including shooting down US strategic bombers even if they are not in North Korea's air space.

"The whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war on our country," he told reporters in New York.

"Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country."

Yep.  The march toward war has quickened.  Now we enter the silly season.  Both sides are gonna be on a hair trigger.  This is the time when what would normally be a simple incident could spiral out of control.
