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, Iran, Syria, others- they all cause an outsized disturbance in the force relative to their size. If they got deliverable nukes they would use them; the first 2 anyway. Lol.

 

You really think IRAN, who is attempting to bring in the MAHDI thru chaos, would hesitate to annihilate Israel if it could?

Would North Korea hesitate, if it had an ironclad way of EMP'ing the USA or obliterating many major US cities?

 

To the poster above who spoke lightly of a nuke on Detroit- 2 KT is really small, IIRC.

the translation left out 'Extra'.....it was really 'Extra super mighty'..so you've been warned!

I've read in a book of wisdom, that underestimating your enemy is an evil/inferior act.
Maybe NK wants this threat to fatigue the alert status then he slips a nuke past us?

judging by your sentence structure, i think you are confusing nuclear conflict with rohypnol and a big titted blonde.

America has lost itself in a wilderness

led by kindergarten politics and superstitious

Carpet nuke these turds now, then tell the islamic cult worshipers they are next unless they renounce their cult, missiles, nukes, bombers, etc.

The only means of establishing peace that has worked since the beginning of time is total annihilation of enemies, not the police-action wars of modern era.

Americans establishing peace is an oxymoron.

Is super mighty smaller that super duper?

And super Bigly? Is that bigger or smaller than super mighty?

I just want to know for my pop corn groceries. A littlebit of popcorn with a small strike, a lot of pop corn (trolley?) with the biggest.

Can hardly handle this. Can't they be more specific?

Hopefully the ROE have been changed:
This is how a muslim cunt tied the hands of our troops and facilitated his jihadi brothers...
Here’s some of the unclassified rules of engagement for Afghanistan

No night or surprise searches
Villagers warned prior to searches
20 of 25
U.S. units on searches
U.S. soldiers may not fire at the enemy unless the enemy is preparing to fire first
Afghan National Army or Afghan National Police must accompany
U.S. forces cannot engage the enemy if civilians are present
Troops can fire at an insurgent if they catch them placing an IED, but not if they’re walking away from placing an IED.
Only engage an enemy fighter if you see a weapon, and they’ve fired first

Oh and it was these rules of engagement that prevented the c130 gunship that was overhead from taking out the 2 jihadi that downed extorsion17 (seal team six).... the gunship requested permission to fire and permission was denied.....

I hope you're fucking kidding.

Afghanistan had absolutely NOTHING to do with 9/11, which was an inside job, and meant only to destroy all SEC and IRS investigation of Wall Street, and destroy all Congressional investigation records of the Pentagon, which had 'off-booked' $2,300 billion to the war profiteers without audits. That the mandatory Y2K data backups of those investigation records, kept safely in a New Jersey data center were also 'accidentally erased', and the fact that Rumsfeld-Cheney had already launched preparations to attack Afghanistan in July, 2001, should tell you all you need to know about whose 'hands are being tied', and by the way, your story is bullshit. They were shooting civilians and cutting off their ears for war trophies. One Marine got caught with a decorated skull war trophy, another one's girlfriend got caught with $500 Gs in shrinkwrapped $100s, they never did register where all those $Billions in palletized $100s disappeared to, or the tsunami of heroin that killed my roommate.

Can America survive kimchi farts?  Are we sufficiently hardened?...

you're saying an erection is an anti flatulence device?

The American people dont take Kim serious.

Why should Trump?

North korea is a joke.

The only countries it can hurt is South Korea/China/maybe Japan.

Dipshit has submarines & sub launched nukes. Even if they can't get a missile to land on a specific building they can still send it straight up for an airburst a mile off shore. That might roil the markets. Hawaii, San Diego, Long Beach, San Francisco Bay, Portland, Seattle.

 

Fuck. Those are all heavily infested with liberals, thugs & gangs.

I left SoCal in the arly 90's. Missed it for about six months then got engrained in my new state. 

Have only been back to visit twice. Thankfully the rest of my immediate family is now looking to bail as well. The taxes, regulations and moonbeam making CA a sanctuary state was the final nail for them.

I know plenty of good people who live in mobile homes.. I suppose you cheer when people lose those "trailors" in hurricanes and floods. I notice even the smug get their houses flooded and the wind takes those away too. Do you smuggly use and and abuse those as trash too? Got any reletives living in "trailors". I hope so for the next wind or flood or fire event...

TheLastTrump's picture

That reminds me of those sick fuck Democrats that were cheering TN?? wildfires recently. Cheering because Republicans owned them.

 

I rented a doublewide trailer a long time ago. Hard to keep it cold/warm. Not my thing.

The Trump deceit M.O. becomes ineffective quickly.

The best part of this coming disaster, is that most of the west coast would go. And that means most of people like you would be gone forever. Your socialist/communist lifestyle will be blasted by your own ideas. Ideals are for moral peoples, you go with whatever rubs your own rhubarb. But you get the picture,,, you will reap what you sow and blather on about.

Reaper's picture

To educate you.  M.O. = Modus Operandi = method of operation

Trump said Assad could stay = Assad must go/missiles

Trump said carrier sent to NK = carrier goes 1000 miles elsewhere

Trump said MAGA/end foreign adventures =  acts in Syria, Somalia, NK

When Trump speaks, will foreign leaders believe?
