On his nationally syndicated radio show Tuesday, host Mark Levin warned of the dangers of a nuclear North Korea, telling listeners that “We may be on the brink of war.”

“Over the past year, we’ve talked a lot about North Korea, tying to draw the public’s attention to it – same with Venezuela and same with Iran – while other people are chasing meatballs and other stuff,” said Mark Levin. “These are very, very big issues, ladies and gentlemen, because we may be on the brink of war.”

Levin’s comments come after news broke Tuesday revealing that the communist nation of North Korea, led by dictator Kim Jong Un, has successfully produced missile-ready nuclear weapons, a key step in the nations attempt to become a full-fledged nuclear power.

Below is a transcript of Levin’s remarks from Monday’s show:

“Over the past year, we’ve talked a lot about North Korea, tying to draw the public’s attention to it – same with Venezuela and same with Iran – while other people are chasing meatballs and other stuff. These are very, very big issues, ladies and gentlemen, because we may be on the brink of war.

“Maybe not tomorrow, but what about next year? What about the year after that?

 “We have regimes now that are perfecting their ICBMs and their nuclear warheads, and we’ll dig into this.

“North Korea now has the capacity to shoot a nuclear warhead into the United States. There is a new report that says, ‘No they don’t have 10 warheads, they have 60.’

 “Now, this wasn’t done during the presidency of Donald Trump. This was done during past presidencies, eight years before Donald Trump. The Obama Administration was unilaterally disarming and appeasing, while the North Koreans were building up a nuclear arsenal.

“While the Iranians were building up a nuclear arsenal, the Obama administration not only stopped Israel from attacking them, but near the end of the administration, it actually provided tens of billions of dollars in funding for Iran to use to increase its military capacity.”
