Hagel: North Korea Nears ‘Dangerous Line’

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is warning that North Korea is nearing a “dangerous line” with their constant statements about the prospect of war breaking out, saying this has “not helped defuse a combustible situation.”

Of course Pentagon officials have been talking up the threat of war just as regularly, with one official speaking to CNN referring to North Korea as the “masters of deception,” and speculating that the missile test launch could be used to cover an attack with other missiles.

Hagel downplayed the risks posed by North Korea, saying that the Pentagon was more than capable of handling any conceivable incident and had planned for every contingency.
