North Korea may have just hinted at a major political decision that could change the course of their history.

The country’s foreign ministry recently warned they were considering instituting a major tactical decision.

Most importantly, the decision will not only affect North Korea but the United States as well.

North Korea’s foreign ministry said they were ready to strike against the United States if the country had an issue with any attacks on U.S. allies.

Following remarks made by United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, North Korea claimed they had the power to strike against the United States should the super nation declare war.

Breitbart News reports:

“The U.S. should face up to the situation of the world with its eyes wide open. The DPRK has the will and capability to fully respond to any war the U.S. would like to ignite,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying, according to the South Korean newswire service Yonhap.

“If the businessmen-turned-U.S.-authorities thought that they would frighten the DPRK, they would soon know that their method would not work on the latter,” the spokesman continued. “The world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won by the DPRK in the recent ground jet test of Korean-style high-thrust engine will carry.”

The remarks made by North Korea were following the United States decision to support its allies in Tokyo and Seoul if needed.

Under Obama’s administration, “strategic patience” was his default military decision.

But now, President Trump is willing to actually defend his country and its allies, no matter what it takes.

“The policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of diplomatic, security and economic measures. All options are on the table,” Tillerson said, clarifying to one reporter that these options did include a military last resort.

North Korea is now pulling its allies into the political tension as well.

Recently, the United States was urging China to follow sanctions set by the United Nations they were previously avoiding.

Tillerson also repeated on multiple stops during his Asia trip that he hoped to see North Korea’s closest ally, China, take steps to ensure that Pyongyang abides by United Nations sanctions. In China, Tillerson emphasized issues on which the two nations agreed, though reports suggest that he privately urged Beijing to cut economic ties with North Korea.

Pyongyang appears to have received the message. In addition to the foreign ministry’s response, the Rodong Sinmun, a state propaganda newspaper, published a column Monday arguing that North Korea needs nuclear weapons because the United States will invade it if it does not threaten a nuclear attack. “Our army and people will continuously bolster up our nuclear deterrent for self-defense down the road under the conditions that high-level U.S. government officials adamantly stick to their hostile policy toward us,” the column read.

Ultimately, the political climate is changing in the world, and tensions are high between the United States and North Korea.

Even if North Korea makes such a decision as to strike against the United States, the United States and its allies seem unconcerned the militant conflict will greatly affect the country.
