North Korea Threatens US With "Super-Mighty Preemptive Strike"

Tyler Durden's picture

Whether China is right about North Korea conducting a nuclear test on April 25 remains to be seen, but for now Kim Jong-Un is content with merely escalating the verbal warfare and overnight North Korean state media warned the United States of a "super-mighty preemptive strike" following the latest round of comments by Rex Tillerson who said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear programme.

The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party, did not mince its words: "In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists' invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes" it said according to Reuters.

The threat will hardly come as a surprise: the reclusive communist nation regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States "and has shown no let-up in its belligerence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang."

The comments come in response to Tillerson statement in Washington on Wednesday when he told reporters that "we're reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage with us, but re-engage with us on a different footing than past talks have been held,"

Furthermore, Paul Ryan said during a visit to London the military option must be part of the pressure brought to bear. "Allowing this dictator to have that kind of power is not something that civilised nations can allow to happen," he said in reference to Kim. Ryan said he was encouraged by the results of efforts to work with China to reduce tension, but that it was unacceptable North Korea might be able to strike allies with nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, the US and Russia clashed at the United Nations on Wednesday over a U.S.-drafted Security Council statement -  which has to be agreed by all participants in the 15-member council - to condemn North Korea's latest failed ballistic missile test. Curiously, diplomats said China had agreed to the statement.

Previous statements denouncing missile launches "welcomed efforts by council members, as well as other states, to facilitate a peaceful and comprehensive solution through dialogue". The latest draft statement dropped "through dialogue" and Russia requested it be included again.

 

"When we requested to restore the agreed language that was of political importance and expressed commitment to continue to work on the draft ... the U.S. delegation without providing any explanations cancelled the work on the draft," the Russian U.N. mission said in a statement.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China believed in the Security Council maintaining unity. "Speaking with one voice is extremely important to the Security Council appropriately responding to the relevant issue on the peninsula," he told reporters.

With North Korean tensions lingering, there remains some confusion over the whereabouts of a U.S. aircraft carrier group after Trump said last week he had sent an "armada" as a warning to North Korea, even as the ships were still far from Korean waters. The U.S. military's Pacific Command explained that the USS Carl Vinson strike group first had to complete a shorter-than-planned period of training with Australia. It was now heading for the Western Pacific as ordered, it said.

The incident has also become a source of mockery for China, whose influential Global Times newspaper, which is published by the People's Daily, wondered whether the misdirection was deliberate.

"The truth seems to be that the U.S. military and president jointly created fake news and it is without doubt a rare scandal in U.S. history, which will be bound to cripple Trump's and U.S. dignity," it said.

North Korea is supported by China. Everyone else hates them. They are a proxy for China so bluster must provide additional aid.

Surprising how little damage a small nuke will do to a city. NUKEMAP web site shows damage and casualties caused by nuclear explosion. For example, if a 2 kiloton device exploded in Detroit, 22,500 casualties and 75,000 injuries. Detroit has a population of approximately 700,000 people. A terrible scenario but many survivors.

Detroit getting nuked is a terrible scenario?!? Hell, it would be an improvement!

As far as I can tell he is talking about a fat lady that shit her pants in a chip shop. But my Russian is not very good.

If Trump hadn't bombed the shit out of Syria and pissed off the Russians and had instead STAYED WITH HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISE TO MEND RELATIONS WITH RUSSIA, the US would have Fat Boy between a rock and a hard place and this would finished by now.

IVANKA DOESN'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY. JARED, DO US ALL A FAVOR AND KEEP HER IN THE GODDAMN KITCHEN BAKING AND MAKING BABIES!

Imagine, if Trump had repaired US/Russia relations the world would already have killed so many radical Islamic assholes in Syria/Iraq, the stray dogs would all be fat and happy AND Fat Boy with the nukes would know to shut the fuck up less Russia and China thump his ass too.

What a fucking mess.

yes if Trump repaired US/Russia relations, cleaned up  SISIS etc, or left Syria alone, NK might not  be so scared. US has been frightening  NK for 70 years. If it feels safe it will shut up, have happy flower festivals etc.  More threats from US then more from NK. Stop bullying is the answer.

Not that we have any reason to worry that either the ship the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan responsible for assisting with the clean up at Fukushima 6 years ago that never got decontaminated from it's radiation along with the deaths of the naval personnel years later will be "emptied" at the appropriate time but many are speculating that this could be used as a "pretext" -like this one had the potential (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Uf-6HrH_fE) to start the last and ONLY conflict the U.S. will ever fight again -if North Korea is their suicide "choice"!

But...

At this point folks anything and EVERYTHING is possible when your government is THIS corrupt and THIS desperate and THE SHEEP they rule ARE THIS INDIFFERENT!

What's the cost of sending all these carrier groups out to, presumably, do NOTHING but show force compared with their "normal" operating schedules? 

What the fuck is so hard about letting sovereign nations develop their own technology?

Most would support having as many armed citizens concealed carry...is this not the same principle as having as many countries own nuclear weapons to make it less likely anyone will pull shit?

Am I just seeing this wrong?

As for the translation, the Korean probably has a LOCAL meaning that doesn't translate directly to English....allowing for the psyop spin masters of USSA to mock "fatty" even more.  Not familiar with Korean, but very much so with translating certain languages.
