If North Korea Makes an Insane Move, Our Lives Could Change Within Minutes

Last week, The U.N Security Council unanimously voted on new sanctions against North Korea after the country tested intercontinental ballistic missiles. Glenn described these sanctions as “some of the toughest sanctions he’s ever seen.” These include North Korea being unable to sell raw materials, coal, energy products, iron, raw minerals and sea food products --- all of which could cost up to $1 billion within the first month.

Kim Jong Un is now blaming these sanctions on the American people and government, promising “thousand fold revenge” against the United States.

What does this mean?

“I don’t know,” Glenn admitted.

We are technically still at war with North Korea, and these sanctions could be the straw that turns the war from cold to active.

“Our lives could change in any 18-minute period . . . and the world would change forever because of this,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Hey, Chicago, Los Angeles, possibly even Dallas. I doubt we're on the list, though. You can be vaporized any time from North Korea, but no big deal. North Korea, I have no idea what their response is going to be. But he cannot -- Kim Jong-un cannot back down. He is blaming the sanctions on the American people and the American government. You know, we are still technically at war with North Korea. We have an armistice, not peace talks. Not a treaty. We have an armistice. So the world is still going on, it's just a Cold War. Now that they can vaporize an American city, the United Nations got together and the security council this weekend voted 5-0 for some of the toughest sanctions I've ever seen. They can't sell any of their raw materials, they can't sell coal, they can't sell any energy products, they can't sell iron, they can't sell raw minerals or any of their seafood products. That's a lot. And will cost I think a billion -- is it a billion dollars just in the first month?

PAT: That's going to shut down every restaurant in America too. Not being able to buy North Korean seafood.

GLENN: I don't think they're --

PAT: North Korean crab on the menu, I have to tell you.

JEFFY: Makes me run out and want to buy another too.

GLENN: So the people are already starving, he's going to blame it on America.

JEFFY: They've threatened us thousands fold revenge.

GLENN: Yes. So what does that mean? I don't know. But if it is in the -- anywhere from the book of insanity, our lives could change in any 18-minute period. And the world would change forever because of this.
