Dangerous but others say Kim Jong-un is just bluffing to get more cash.
Taken -- -- this.
-- I have to ask you this right seeing this pitfall every year this any different.
-- -- But you can see -- -- -- your calendar to know that every spring North Korea diocese because they're running out of food they're running out of fuel.
And people are kind of getting fed up with that so every spring they manufacture a crisis they -- -- -- -- the negotiating table.
They know that will give them the food -- they need and so everything's fine for -- this year it's different so they -- back -- we don't back off.
Yet here's why you don't know -- I think the -- is different this time -- is three things one.
Every one of the countries involved his new leaders of North Korean guy 29 years old you know his crisis management technique.
He's ever get -- one of these things his experiences from video games he doesn't know how to deal with national security crises of this level.
The South Koreans have a new president only been here a month -- the Japanese have a new prime minister.
-- there are very few a couple of months.
Also -- the Chinese the entire Chinese leadership is new in the last several months hawkish new US secretary of state -- secretary of defense.
Any one of these people could do one slight -- -- All -- that -- at war that's the danger somebody everybody has a shot by mistake on the other response no way you go war within minutes.
Scores -- day is -- its own book it.
-- -- -- Yes and here's why because first of all the north Koreans do have nuclear weapons they don't have the ability to put a nuclear weapon on a missile and hit.
-- Cisco but they have nuclear weapons there this guy's emboldened.
The thing is that we have 30000 American troops in South Korea.

The question now is it's this -- leadership in North Korea decides we're gonna sink -- South Korean ship.
We're gonna say a missile itself South Korea you would have the United States and south Korean War with Mercury -- -- -- -- -- I don't know why they dictate policy in North Korea do you think they tell what to do while they say hey -- Knocking -- Afghanistan -- and that may be the key out of this crisis.
This the Chinese have mobilized on the north Koreans little if that's another very strong well.
But they -- they put their troops on the border why they -- hard solidarity with North Korea and part they want 101000.
They don't want I'm really in North Korean refugees coming over the border into China.
I think though the Chinese calculation.
Has historically banned -- this at a low boil you know we like the fact that the Japanese or South -- -- Americans are all off balance.
By these North Korean threats but now -- threatens to world.
He's raising the temperature everybody in America it is we have -- Korea certainly is China Korea South Korea is it bowling -- is rising like it is now threatens to borrow over and that's why I think if there's any opportunity to talk to the Chinese.
Now it's a time to do it you guys have to reign in your people.
My worry again is says.
And -- -- leadership has emboldened this is a guy who has -- he's reckless he shouldn't even be allowed to play with matches.
And he's got his hands on nuclear weapons cellphone -- it is not funny but here we go out KT McFarland all right thanks for joining -- here.
