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.

The media would care and some idiot Bible-Belters would think the Apocalypse was upon us.

But regular people wouldn't give a shit. Many would probably laugh about it. Think of the Hollywood Holocaust porn that would follow though. Would make the past 70 years of Holocaust porn and endless kvetching seem small by comparison.

The gloating Chinamen don't understand us as well as they think.

US dignity is preserved, thank you. It isn't as if Kim Kardashian's ass exploded, or our Cheetos reserves are exhausted, or our ability to do gender reassignment surgery has been cruelly taken from us.

we know how this story ends. 6th grader bully needs to make an example of a 8th grader but the story kinda needs a touchup not to upset the assumed power structure   So he sends his 3rd grader cousin to give the 8th grader a finger and tell him his mama sucks dick.

North Korea is normally a regional threat only to South Korea, Russia and China. One has to wonder if all the non-stop war games on land and at sea instigated by our wonderful, peace loving neocons caused all of this...

Looks like I may have been wrong earlier. Norks are working on their sub launched missiles but they aren't quite there yet.

I thought I heard they fired one and it went off course. In that case accuracy isn't essential for a coastal target.

North Korea is a PATSY & to be sacrificed if necessary. North Korea has the right to defend themselves against aggression which is beyond obvious who is doing that. They can test all the Nukes they want to. They will be used as False Flag Patsy for whatever the Zio-Anglo Saxon Cabal has planned. EMP or Nuke strike. Trump blew it already & he's part of it. Even just lying to the American people about the USS Carl Vinson being en-route to North Korea Peninsula was a lie to the American peolple. That's a clue. America is the target & the Rothschild owned Zio-Tribe Shadow Government is the Terrorist. Just look at the Balfour Declaration & who it was addressed to & why it was started. WWl & Palestine (aka IsRaHell) back in 1917 under the Palestinean brand. Then 1948 after the World War ll farce casued by the same crew & Bankers. All part of the Wolrd Government agenda & goal.

Food prices creeping up, no wage increases for most, not really too many jobs... Heck they don;t even post the TRUE unemployemnt numbers anymore.

At what point does Humanity become conscious & wake up to the fact that the only real enemy on the planet is the US Shadow Government & Zio-Tribe that runs it ? The Vatican / Jesuits all use IsRaHell as they're Terrorist front for all the Operation Gladio / AQ / Taliban / Muslim Brotherhood sham attemted planetary take down.

North Kore has the right to self determine who & how they want to run they're country. I don;t care & neither should anybody else. If the people are that unhappy - miserable - abused let them have their own REVOLUTION.

The CIA has been usurping Democratic elected governments for how long now ?

While interfering - riggong - propagandizing - agitprop on Americans which is supposed & use to be illegal until the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012. Obozo was a CFR - CIA Operative put in by Brzezinski - KissmyASSinger & they're Banking Cartel elite Rothschild - Rockefeller - Bildeberger Group Wolrd Bank - IMF - UN et al)

The system is rigged & broken. Trump is just Hopium for the masses & a banaid until the crisis's manifest enough that they will try to collapse the economy when the conditions are right & they have the suveillance & Digital Currency Banking systems in place. BioMetrics - Vaccines _RFID Chips all of it if humanity will allow them to pull it off. When does humanity wake up & say it's enough ?

Vaccines are designed to cause cancer and kill you by 65 so the Feds don't have to pay out social security.

Man this guy is in La La Land..he threw away a golden opportunity to play little king of his little land...I think he's removed by next month. I am as Ant-War as they come but if ever there was a case for U.S. practicing what they preach in actually having "Humanitarian" interventions and not treasure hunts under the guise of humanitarian interventions this guy has been on my list for years and his whole oppresive family. North Korea has essentially no resources or arable land that is the only reason has not been removed thus far...Maybe Trump truly cares about the fact that millions of his own people are tortured, executed and starved...they would assimilate with the South Koreans quickly and it is long overdue.

     He also is a liability and I do believe eventually he will attempt to nuke someone via sub...next up would be Saudi Arabia..I would do no business with them so long as they continue to treat their women they way they do...funny we hear nothing from our own women in that regard and the SJW narrative pushers...the reason why is because the Saudis own too much influence in the global media and they dont steer the useless idiots in that direction.

Naah.

 

Trump will let the missiles fly for a few dead blonde babies given prominent TV time lol.   That is "humanitarian.".  But a real threat to us with hundreds of thousands of dead starved children over several decades will likely be ignored.

 

He may threaten Kim again on twitter though lol.

Hey, I thought we (the US) were the only belligerent asshole in this 'conversation'. I guess not.

At least North Koreans will fight to protect their country while Americans would rather live on their knees before fight the traitors and dual-citizens that have taken over US Govt.

Yawn.

Now back to the scheduled investigation of the President Whatnow Administration and their involvement in the Russian connection to the 2016 elections.

As we have said all along these guys are creating Confusion, Chaos and disaster with every move and decision.

Didn't I read a well explained article today that described why the US had no chance in hell of successfully invading NK without significant damage and cost to themselves and especiallly to much of South Korea. Not to mention that China and Russia would never let the US invade NK without giving significant 'aid' to the NK.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

No need to invade north Korea.  After we destroy their military and every bit of infrastructure that could even remotely aid the DPRK military we let China and south Korea sort it out.  Ending the threat should be our only objective.   Well, that and preventing DPRK troops from entering Seoul.  That is their obvious objective in all out war.  We only need to go up to 25 miles or so forward of the DMZ at most.  China won't bring their troops down to clash with us if we stop there.

And if anyone has a problem with it they can deal with our military.

That's what we pay them for.

If he says he can single-handedly destroy the US, book it. There is a good reason why the Kims are considered living gods in NorKo.

We take out North Korea and who is really going to give a shit?

It's not like they are Mr. Popularity among the Nations of the earth.

Same thing applies to Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Israel.

Who would lose any sleep over that?

Forget NK and USA, now it is all about Florida homeowners who will dorwn because of Climate Change and if we don't pony up Carbon Tax payola the world will be like it was when Noah built that tub they call an Ark. Check today's bloomberg.

Damn MSM, creating fear and terror where there isn't any.

Weathermen can't give an accurate two day forecast, but scientists will tell us what will happen 10 years from now.  So far, from depleting ozone layers to CO2, I haven't noticed a difference where I live in over 60 years.  Maybe where I live it is excempt from the scientists instruments?

How much CO2 does congress and the POTUS put in the air every year?  Maybe they should be first to go?

This word, "allowing"...as in, 'allowing' a country to develop nukes...I want Ryan to explain what that means. Did we 'allow' Russia, China, France, Pakistan, etc, to develop nukes? Because they all have them...he knows this, right?

 

So what's with this 'allowing' shit? As if you have ANY say in whether a sovereign country gets hold of an existing weapon system...

 

Has it ever occurred to these morons in DC that their ATTITUDES are the problem? That the attitudes are causing people to say, "Who the fuck do you people think you ARE?"

Do you think China LIKES having this idiot on their border? No...but you know what they DO like? The optics of us telling him he can't, and him flipping us the bird and doing it anyway.

 

Because, really, who the fuck do we think we ARE?

We (i.e., Billy Clinton) ALLOWED Kim Jung's daddy to get nuclear reactors, and therefore nuclear weapons.  WE (the US) invented the damn things, remember?  We ALLOWED Russia to steal the diagrams, which started the whole arms race.

ATTITUDES ARE THE PROBLEM?? Really?  It's not some power-grabbing punk who's threatening to take us ALL out?

so you are advocating blowing the shit out of North Korea because our bombs and guns are just sitting there?  Why pick on N. Korea. Why not blow the shit out of Canada?  They're closer and don't have nukes.  Worst they could do would refuse to allow their citizens to play in the NHL.
