A nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula is inevitable because of threatening military drills by South Korea and the United States, North Korea's foreign ministry said in comments carried by the official Korean Central News Agency late Wednesday.
While food availability and conditions are known to be rough in North Korea, the parasite hints at a ghastly practice used to feed ordinary citizens at risk of starvation while Kim Jong Un allocates most resources to nuclear and missile development.
In rural villages, North Koreans pump water from underground and drink it. "There was no sewage facility, and feces from the toilets went directly underground, meaning the water is getting mixed with those feces", one North Korean woman told The Korea Times.
Lindsey Graham says North Korea is pushing the U.S. closer to military conflict and he believes it's time to start moving the families of American military personnel out of South Korea.

Around 12,000 U.S. service members, including from the Marines and Navy, will join South Korean troops.
The situation is starting to look ugly.
The flights by the B-1B, one of America's largest strike aircraft, have played a leading role in Washington's attempts to increase pressure on North Korea to abandon its weapons programmes. North Korea is emphasizing that it will never abandon its "Byungjin" (parallel development) policy of 'economy and nuclear weapons' which has been its national development strategy since 2015.
China has rejected military intervention and called for an end to the war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.
President Moon Jae-in has pledged to increase the country's military spending to 2.9 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) during his term.
