     NK has had its chance and they are destroying their future - Un is the biggest loser.  North Korea blasted Washington on Wednesday for its plans to conduct joint military exercises with Seoul next month — as negotiations remain deadlocked over the rogue regime’s nuclear arsenal.

     The idle threat - “Our patience is nearing the limits and we won’t be sitting still and watching the United States’ reckless military move,” the state-run KCNA news agency quoted Foreign Ministry official Kwon Jong Gun as saying.

     The diplomat blamed the joint aerial drills — which Pyongyang views as a rehearsal for an invasion — for “throwing cold water” over talks with Washington. Kwon said the announcement of the joint exercises was equivalent to a “declaration for confrontation” that could imperil the diplomatic process.

     Negotiations have been at a standstill since the Hanoi summit between Kim Jong and President Trump broke up in February amid disagreement over sanctions relief and what Pyongyang would be willing to give up in return. North Korea has since carried out a series of missile tests, the latest of them last week, when it said it fired a “super-large multiple rocket launcher.”
