A Giddy Kim Jong-Un Vows To Send "Bigger Gift Package" To America

After a delighted Kim Jong Un supervised the latest successful test of North Korea's latest ballistic missile controlled by a precision guidance system, the leader ordered the development of more powerful strategic weapons, the official KCNA news agency reported on Tuesday.

According to Bloomberg, the missile launched on Monday - the ninth such test this year and coming two days after the G-7 pledged to “strengthen measures” aimed at prompting North Korea to cease nuclear and ballistic missile trials - was equipped with an advanced automated pre-launch sequence compared with previous versions of the "Hwasong" rockets.

In fact, according to KCNA, the latest ballistic missile test involved a precision guidance system that landed within seven meters of its target. As Reuters further adds, The North's test launch of a short-range ballistic missile landed in the sea off its east coast and was the latest in a fast-paced series of missile tests defying international pressure and threats of more sanctions.

The latest missile was first unveiled at an April 15 military parade celebrating the birth anniversary of North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung, the news agency said. It flew 450 kilometers (280 miles) toward Japan, according to South Korean military officials, with the government in Tokyo saying it may have reached waters in Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

The accuracy claims, if true, would represent a potentially significant advancement in North Korea’s missile program. KCNA said Kim called for the continued development of more powerful strategic weapons, though the report didn’t mention whether the missile could carry nuclear warheads.

 

We can’t prove if it’s bluffing, but North Korea is basically saying it can hit the target right in the center, which is scary news for the U.S.,” said Suh Kune Y., a professor at Seoul National University’s department of nuclear engineering. “If true, that means they’re in the final stage of missile development.”

The successful test was music to Kim's ears, who said the reclusive state would develop more powerful weapons in multiple phases in accordance with its timetable to defend North Korea against the United States. "He expressed the conviction that it would make a greater leap forward in this spirit to send a bigger 'gift package' to the Yankees" in retaliation for American military provocation, KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

KCNA said North Korea won’t be swayed by pressure from the G-7.

“The G-7 summit is a place where those nuclear- and missile-haves put their heads together to discuss how to pressure weak countries and those incurring their displeasure,” the news agency said. “The U.S. and its followers are seriously mistaken if they think they can deprive the DPRK of its nuclear deterrence, the nation’s life and dignity, through sanctions and pressure,” it said, using an abbreviation for North Korea.

Trump, who has sought more help from China to rein in its neighbor and ally, said on Twitter that “North Korea has shown great disrespect for their neighbor, China, by shooting off yet another ballistic missile...but China is trying hard!” Beijing also expressed its opposition to the test. All sides should “ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula as soon as possible and bring the Peninsula issue back onto the right track of peaceful dialog,” China’s foreign ministry said.

Meanwhile, South Korea said it had conducted a joint drill with a U.S. supersonic B-1B Lancer bomber earlier on Monday. North Korea's state media earlier accused the United States of staging a drill to practise dropping nuclear bombs on the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. Navy said its aircraft carrier strike group, led by the USS Carl Vinson, also planned a drill with another U.S. nuclear carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan, in waters near the Korean peninsula. A U.S. Navy spokesman in South Korea did not give specific timing for the strike group's planned drill.

North Korea calls such drills a preparation for war, and prompted yet another outburst from Kim on Tuesday:

"Whenever news of our valuable victory is broadcast recently, the Yankees would be very much worried about it and the gangsters of the south Korean puppet army would be dispirited more and more," KCNA cited leader Kim as saying.

Go snort a line asshole...This ass clown acts more and more like a Democrat operative than an actual threat.

I read somewhere the other day that the USS Carl Vinson is coming back home soon.

May that's because it too is contaminated like the USS Ronald Reagan and 15 other US Navy ships that came too close to Fukushima.

Why doesn't Mr. Kim just wave a big flag on top of a building that says "Invade My Country"?  It's like he WANTS it to happen or something.

Why do we care what happens in NK?

Manthong's picture

Seoul is within the range of many hundreds of NK artillery emplacements...

that's what we are concerned about.

But the unbalanced little fat f*ck does not have a clue know who he is dealing with.

Knowing that Trump takes the threat very seriously and has a flair for a show, I think he is willing to make "Shock and Awe” look like a sewing circle.

Seoul is in which congressional district of the US exactly?

I'm looking but I can't seem to find it

I just don't see how any aspect of the North Korea situation is going to Make America Great Again.

This whole thing is just a hyped up thing by MSM and MIC.

Some moron UK newspaper even keeps hyping the possibility that Korean satellites are EMP weapons that could be used at any time anywhere. What lunacy.

dogismycopilot's picture

NK will soon be able to Nuke Hawaii or LA. 

You really want to live a guy who shares a tailor with HRC to have that power?

Besides, we need to destabilize a country near China to give them something to do.

SILVERGEDDON's picture

It would actually be more prudent to wait for Fuk Face actually do something that justifies the use of force. 

Then, America would be the good guy riding to the rescue, rather than the psychopathic bully our leaders have turned us into since WW2, and Korea.

Because Americans are scared of anyone that doesn't show the 'proper' respect for the empire. Americans have no problem killing men, women and children in far away places that cannot retaliate but are cowards when faced with someone they think might strike back. They could care less if 200 million Koreans die so long as the threat to their shit hole cities on the west coast are safe from threat.

Don't confuse globalists and neocon MIC deep state traitors with "Americans". The main fault of "Americans" is allowing themselves to become brainwashed by the politically correct narrative that normalizes the enemy domestic and incapacitates the people to act against them. Americans are not the only ones. Look at Europe. A ray of hope is that Americans are waking up.

So reality check please.   Accuracy within meters essentially renders the traditional American fleet incredibly vulnerable.

Mr.T needs to have a very SERIOUS conversation with Chicom...

Don't play ball...TARIFFS on Chicom garbage and write off ALL $2T U.S. T-Bills...

No trade with the U.S.A...fuck!  What will the Chicoms do?  Probably trade with the other 7.2 billion people on Earth!

What will Apple do?  If it goes tits up, America falls!

Game over negro, now go and rob your neighbour, you 'Merican peasant!

Well, like I said yesterday or the day before at exactly this time was No. Gonna save that for the military sandbars their building in the S China sea. I am going to swap a Carrier for a Very Large tanker full of diesel and a couple of freighters full of organic food.

Kill em with kindness.

Hee-hee snicker chortle

"... and write off ALL $2T U.S. T-Bills..."

I would love to see that happen.

No one will buy treasuries if there is a risk that the US will renege.  Once you become a deadbeat in regard to debt to one country, everyone else will dump their debt and the US will have to pay cash, foreign currency, or gold for everything, possibly in advance.  Can you say bankruptcy and economic collapse, boys and girls.  

Of course, with america's mighty manufacturing base, I'm sure they can weather the storm.

I don't understand it either, what's up with that? Kim should be aware that he's pissing off China big time, just at the time when the new US president represents the biggest trend reversal in American political history. Trump is a guy who might actually follow through on his threat to take on NK (though personally I think this would be best left up to the Chinese because it's their turf, not his, he'd be opening Pandora's box).  

BTW, I've been kinda off line for an extended period of time: ND, did you ever get to organise that ZH gathering in your neck of the woods? 

East Indian's picture

Kim is China's second left hand; what the Chinese can't or don't want to do, even with their left hand, they can do through him. Chinese are not pissed off with Kim. If it is so, they will stop the trade first. 

 

This is a tacit agreement to finish off South Korea - a competitor to China.

Kim's a bit pissed that weight watchers isn't working for him. Hes only lost 2 lbs in 7 weeks hence his rocket bingeing also his secret police have just turned up 30,000 bootleg copies of the conversation.

I mean 30'000 bootleg copies of the interview.

the newest navy $13 billion aircraft carrier with another $4 Bln - $5Bln cost plus expenses yet factored in...[!?!], looking at final dealine cost of~$20 Billion

New White suit, new camo pattern for one of his generals, new LCD screen....things are looking up for Kim.

Check, check, check, and new missle from China.  The whole thing is a ploy by China like Taiwan to get more U.S. concessions on things like trade.  There is no way this guy is developing missles with his prop plane fleet.  PLEASE...between the American propaganda and Chinese and Israeli can we get a second of truth?

NoDecaf's picture

I'll go with that, even if they aren't getting material support in the way of hardware with messy serial numbers and such, it would not surprise me one bit if they were getting tech support on how to build these systems faster.

Caleb Abell's picture

"Check, check, check, and new missle from China."

Hopefully, the Dong Feng Carrier Killer missile.  It's harder to launch fighter planes from an aircraft carrier when it's 5000 feet underwater.

Everyone wins.  Kim has some fun, but it's also a good deal for the US.  Since the Reagan is still contaminated from Fukushima, we not only get rid of the glow in the dark carrier battle group, but we also save all the medical expenses for the cancer ridden crews.

There are just as many Republicans that are Deep State Operatives as there are Dems. He ordered more high powered rockets from the Deep State. The war narrative has to continue.

Pliskin's picture

Do you mean like the Democrat senator John McCain?

Yeh, yeh, yeh, shut the fuck up, idiot!

Both sides are pieces of shit, and you're an American....so you can eat that shit, with a big fucking smile on your face!

Numpty!

NK hasn't provoke anyone!

They have the almghty right to protect themselves against agressor. Period!!

Where else could they test weapons!

medium giraffe's picture

At least they've never nuked anyone.  US fake white knight world police bullshit is getting really boring.

earleflorida's picture

nor have they tested their missiles on civilians as the ussa does!

nk needs to test!

USSA needs to test also,... but those test are conducted with such inaccuracy (deliberate or who gives a fuck ballpark figure?) that of the near thousand tomahawk missiies fired have killed thousands upon thousands of 'Collateral Damage' expendables.

That's how the exceptioalist, 'we-does-it'!

NO!

Going after NK`s Kim will bring Russia and China into the mix.

The USSA can't fight anyone their size anymoar... ?

They're the official world 'BULLY', only picking fights with little defenseless nations like Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen,... etal. !

Lots of activity in ZH posts by the norks.

Hmm, aboslute dictator with nukes -- what could possibly go wrong when Un gets in a bad mood.

At lease in elected governments, before you get to nuke anyone you like, you really need to get control of the banking system and the media and buy off all the politicians first.

Justin Case's picture

History leads to the present. Knowing history allows you to have a clear understanding of how we got here.

US media of course leaves out this entire chain of events. Korea’s leadership agreed not to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for food for their starving population, as well as other humanitarian support, in a time of mass starvation. US leaders did not fulfill their promises. Very little food and heating gas was ever delivered. In this context, is it a surprise, or a moral outrage that North Korea would also drop its end of the bargain, and go ahead and pursue nukes? Does such an action really fit the narrative of a “rogue state” lead by “insane” leaders bent on destroying the planet?

When a few basic facts are mentioned, the entire narrative and perception of North Korea falls apart. The DPRK hasn’t always had mass starvation, and according to even rather hostile sources like BBC and the Council on Foreign Relations, its economic system was quite successful at one time. Furthermore, the DPRK developed Nuclear Weapons only in response to the failure US leaders to fulfill their obligations under a negotiated agreement. They were promised certain things in exchange for not developing nuclear weapons. They did not get those things, so they went ahead did it.

These facts are conveniently forgotten in any discussion of the DPRK, but they are highly relevant to understanding the country and its relationship with the world. While ignoring important aspects of reality, these news sources talk of “fake news” and urge us to listen exclusively to them? That’s probably not a good idea, especially for those who want peace.
