If N. Korea starts a war, the regime is over: former U.S. intelligence chiefUpdated: 2014-08-21 16:27:31 (KST)
A former high-level U.S. official has warned North Korea against pushing the boundaries with its provocations saying a war would mean the end of the regime.
In an interview with South Korea's Yonhap News Agency, former director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair said the North Korean regime would be wiped out by nuclear weapons, if it first attempts a nuclear attack.
He added North Korea is well aware of this and knows "there's a limit" to how far it can go.
The former intelligence chief also mentioned that North Korea will conduct another nuclear test whenever it wants to "create a threat" in an attempt to extract concessions *out of the U.S. and South Korea.
