With warships currently making their way back to the area and North Korea testing newer weaponry at every turn, America’s long-running standoff with the dictatorship seems to be heading towards a heated confrontation. There are a few other nations in the mix that stand between the United States and the DPRK, even if President Trump says we’re willing to go it alone, and each one likely has some interest in what the next moves will be.
When it comes to North Korea, they’re not taking the tough talk and Naval actions lightly. According to NBC News, the nation says it is ready to face down the might of the American military and anything else that gets thrown at them:
Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland.
This is definitely not a fun time and it’s hard to find humor in any of it, even if Kim Jong-un has a pretty silly haircut. Even Seth Rogen is quick to send out a warning about the nation on Twitter, referencing his own past experience with Kim Jong-un and his elite hacking unit “Lazarus.” As you likely remember, Rogen and James Franco caused quite the controversy when they produced The Interview and “killed’ Kim Jong-un on the big screen for all to see. Or that’s where it was supposed to happen. The Sony hack derailed the film, as did threats against its premiere and other showings around the nation. The film was eventually released online before filtering its way to Netflix, but Rogen hasn’t forgotten the experience and shares a helpful tip to avoid any future issues:
Either there’s a lot the public doesn’t know about what happened with the hacks and the release of the film or Rogen is just having a little fun. Rogen hammers it home with this reply:
You hear that, Donald Trump? Seth Rogen is trying to help you for once. It’s a lot different than the last time he reached out.
