US United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley told the Security Council that North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un “is begging for war” after the latest nuclear test in the hermit kingdom.

“Despite our efforts, the North Korea nuclear program is more advanced and more dangerous than ever,” she explained. “War is never something the United States wants. We don’t want it now. But our country’s patience is not unlimited.”

Here is her full speech:

Haley detailed that inaction over the past 24 years have allowed North Korea to become a nuclear armed nation.

She stressed to her colleagued that “enough is enough” and now “the time has come to exhaust all of our diplomatic means before it’s too late.” Haley continued:

“Only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem through diplomacy. We have kicked the can down the road long enough. There is no more road left. This crisis goes well beyond the U.N. The United States will look at every country that does business with North Korea as a country and the United States will look at every country that does business with North Korea as a country that is giving aid to their reckless and dangerous nuclear intentions.”

South Korea’s Defense Ministry announced on Monday that North Korea has began preparations to launch another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The nuclear bomb the North Korea regime tested could be attached to an ICBM, which heightens the possibility of the bomb to reach America. From The Wall Street Journal:

South Korean Maj. Gen. Jang Kyung-soo, acting deputy minister for national defense policy, said Seoul had detected signs of activity that suggested North Korea, which conducted its first two ICBM test launches in July, was preparing to launch another ballistic missile.

Gen. Jang didn’t say what the signs of activity were, nor did he give a time frame for a possible launch. But many experts have been preparing for a weapons test around Sept. 9, when North Korea plans to mark the anniversary of its foundation in 1948.
