Tyler Durden's picture

According to a report in South Korea's Munhwa Ilbo newspaper, which cites an unidentified government official, South Korea's military is preparing a "surgical strike" scenario that could wipe out North Korean command and missile and nuclear facilities following an order by S.Korea's President Moon Jae-in. Munhwa adds that the military is to report the scenario to presidential office after completing it as early as August 1.

As the report details, South Korea's Special Forces are preparing a special strike op which would be launched in response to President Moon Jae-In's order to remove the North Korean leadership in case of emergency. This operation is taking place in addition to separate preparations currently conducted by the country's military forces.

Targeted by the surgical strike would be North Korea's core facilities. As part of the operation, South Korea's forces would launch Taurus cruise missiles from F-15 fighters, which would be able to strike all key facilities in Pyongyang and can also strike the office of the Chairman of the Labor Party, Kim Jong Eun, at the Pyongyang Labor Party headquarters.

The newspaper also adds that the South Korean military's own strike-hit scenarios include plans to create a special mission brigade of 1,000 to 2,000 at the end of this year with plans to eliminate war leadership figures such as Kim Jong Un and paralyze warfare command facilities in case of emergency. The military authorities have already commenced the CH-47D (Chinook) performance improvement project to transport these special mission brigades

According to the military authorities on March 31, the South Korean military's own strike-hit scenario is being drafted jointly by the Strategic Planning Division of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Ministry of National Defense, rather than the National Security Office of Cheong Wa Dae, and the "Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) It was known as the core department. The nuclear and WMD response centers will take on a major role in the early response, and will be activated in response to the North Korean nuclear and missile threats once they cross a critical "Red Line" threshold.

The full report, google translated is below:

Scenario of 'North Precision Strike' Scenario Taurus will be installed in F-15K for 170 additional units until next year.

 

South Korea's Special Forces Operation Squad To Be Established In response to President Moon Jae-In's order to remove the North Korean leadership in case of emergency , it was confirmed that the military is preparing its own unique North Korean core facility precision strike scenario. In addition, with the launch of the second inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, the two countries will begin negotiations on revising the missile guidance in five years. see. According to the military authorities on March 31, the South Korean military's own strike-hit scenario is being drafted jointly by the Strategic Planning Division of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Ministry of National Defense, rather than the National Security Office of Cheong Wa Dae, and the "Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) It was known as the core department. The nuclear and WMD response centers, which are scheduled to be expanded to operations headquarters in the future, will take on a major role in early construction of their own response capabilities, such as South Korea's own precision strike scenario in response to the North Korean nuclear and missile threats that have reached the critical threshold of the Red Line. 

 

At the core of the precise striking scenarios of North Korea's core facilities and early measures to secure their own batting power, which are known to be being drafted by the Ministry of National Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are cruise missiles such as TAURUS, a long-range air- And the mainland-2, and the Ham-Daeji / Zamdaeji-3-series ballistic missiles. 

 

Taurus, the core power of precision strike in North Korea, can strike all key facilities in Pyongyang if fired from F-15K fighters over Daejeon. Taurus can also strike the windows of the office of the Chairman of the Labor Party, Kim Jong Eun, at the Pyongyang Labor Party headquarters. The army is expected to introduce about 170 ships by next year, and it is said to have about 100 ships. The Defense Ministry issued a warning to North Korea on May 4 after releasing the Taurus video after the first test launch of the Hwaseong-14 type in North Korea. 

 

On June 23, Moon Jae-in, Moon Jae-in visited the field, and the Hyundai-2C ballistic missile was evaluated to have improved the accuracy rate compared to the Hyundai-2A (300km) and Hyundai 2-B (500?) ballistic missiles. Our military possesses 300, 500 and 800 km of ballistic missiles and 1,000 km of cruise missiles.

 

Negotiations on the amendment of the ROK-US Missile Guidelines are also expected to become effective in securing deterrence against North Korea. If you increase the 500kg weight of warhead to 1 ~ 2t from the 800km standard, you will have a destructive power that can reach 10-20m in the underground concrete bunker in North Korea. In response, Defense Minister Kim Young-woo said on May 30, "Defense Minister Song Hyung-moo seems to be willing to insist on the weight of the warheads (over 800 km) 

 

The South Korean military's own strike-hit scenarios include plans to create a special mission brigade of 1,000 to 2,000 at the end of this year as one of the KMPR plans to eliminate war leaderships such as Kim Jong Il and paralyze warfare command facilities in case of emergency. The military authorities have already commenced the CH-47D (Chinook) performance improvement project to transport these special mission brigades.  Jung Chong Shin reporter csjung@munhwa.com

Really?...

Perhaps the U.S. needs to think more carefully about using South Korea for target practice and adopt the German position (http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/06/15/germany-hits-back-at-possible-new-u-...) about what a "bullseye" on their backside looks like when your patron lives 10,000 miles away!

Cause I see lots of dead South Koreans in the streets if they don't adopt Germany's position!!!

See, the idea is to get Rodman slashing through the key, he sets up the pick and causes all kinds of confusion where the man and zone defenses overlap.  Of course the added benefit is with Rodman's back to the 3-pt line, he faces the hoop and can use his good reading to bring down the boards.  Win win for Team American IMO.

I don't know what it all means, but I'm pretty sure I should remain long LMT.

They’re just now figuring this out?
Where the hell have they been for the past 20 years?

Cool,

As long as they keep hush and it is a surprise.

Is Munhwa Ilbo the WorldNetDaily of South Korea or something?  Don't tell me: a certain retired green beret wrote this, huh?

I am Chumbawamba.

researchfix's picture

Thinking about what will be coming back from the north. It won´t be surgical.

Giant Meteor's picture

Just wait one second here, this has to be going wayyyyy beyond MOABS ....

Manthong's picture

 

Um,,,

MOAB only works if you do not have a credible SAM threat.

.. maybe a good next media display for the trumpster would be the near west side of Chicago.

Does surgical strike mean to strike NK, while you are in head surgery yourself (NK bombing your capital to smithereens)?

North Korea already getting ready to hit south Korea.

Fukdat. Fatso boy needs to take out DC when all the turds are in session

if we're gonna do him, we might as well get something out of it right?

Bob's picture

They not only have all the artillery we know about in the hills just beyond the DMZ, but they reportedly have a massive supply of biological and chemical shells. 

This has gotta be fake news.  S Korea wouldn't commit suicide for Trump. 

Gotta face it: Fat boy don't fuck around. 

CIA propaganda.

not dead yet's picture

Supposedly the North has dug tunnels, lined and paved not just dirt, into the South where troops and equipment can be rushed through. Some have been found but speculation is there are many more. After the recent decades of US carnage one would expect the Norks would have their command and control in deep cover not out in the open like the artillery that's hidden in caves. After the current SK president entered office one of his first actions was to open dialog with the North, something the US refuses to do.

Now we hear the South wants nukes too. One way to do that is join with the North. According to those in the know the US does not want a united Korea, and never has, especially one with nukes. Although we think the South is reasonable and peaceful for some reason the US is deathly afraid of the SOUTH having nukes.

researchfix's picture

Why should NK hit SK? They are one people. And they know who stands between them.

deja's picture

Assuming, of course, that North Korea's intent all along isn't to invade South Korea.  I'd bet that will be a strong possibility once the norks have a credible nuclear threat.  Kim Il Sung tried it and was humiliated, and I wouldn't discount little fat from wanting to turn that around.  Not to mention coveting the resources of the wealthy south.

Looks like the South Korean Generals serve at the pleasure of the round-eye "Mad Dog" and not there newly elected peace-dividend of a President "Jae-in"

P.S.

Does anyone have the Korean version of Nena's "99 Red Ballons"?

karenm's picture

Just an FYI. Nations don't tell the whole world about a first strike they are about to make on another nation. This is 100% propaganda for the masses. 

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

I'd agree with you if this wasn't a government in terminal financial meltdown with no equal that worship's a currency that has been deceased since 2010...

Just keep that in mind!

karenm's picture

And you think the government didn't know it would be in terminal decline? They PLANNED IT themselves. Stop reading headlines, start thinking critically and researching.

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

Didn't know that planning your own suicide could be so "strategic"!

Thanks for helping me understand how a terminally ill government "thinks"!

karenm's picture

It's not their suicide fool. They have underground bunkers with enough food and supplies to last. It's our suicide. Like I said, do research before you open your dumbass mouth and make a fucking idiot of yourself.

"It's not their suicide fool. They have underground bunkers with enough food and supplies to last. It's our suicide. "

Will you be dead along with the 99% rest of U.S.? Or do you work for the "1%" that will be chillin 3 miles down with George Soros?

not dead yet's picture

Unless those bunkers are behind massive armed fortifications with unlimited ammo the surviving masses with break in and take their stuff. Or the surviving masses are pissed and break in to kill those rich occupants. If the shit really hits the fan the real survivors will be hidden in the mountains or desert hideouts or any place far from current civilization. Or living like rats in the ruins of the cities. No matter how much you plan and prepare when the SHTF your stuff belongs to everyone. It's only the naive who think those going without will look upon those in the bunkers and say "good on yer mate I deserve to die cuz I didn't plan ahead." The real winners will be the military as they have the weapons and the discipline. When the politicians head for the government bunkers they will be full of military personnel and the pols will be lined up and shot.

n d y

You nailed it with the exception of your BS about the military being in charge after the "fallout".

If you think that's the scenario that will play out you're sorely mistaken. When the U.S. military realizes what they've done to their families and themselves they will be very angry and take it out on their chain-of-command that gave them the orders along with the rich Anglo-Zionist Kikes that make it all possible!

A civil war will take places among them that looks alot like "Mad Max Road Warrior"!

The more you talk publicly about something, the less inclined you'll be to do it ! It's like the dog which barks alot but has no bite...

end times prophet's picture

What???

The north and the south have been in a technical state of war for the better part of the last six decades and they are JUST NOW drawing up plans for a first strike??  WTF have they been doing for the past 3 generations?

shovelhead's picture

Trying to forget that Seoul is slingshot distance from the border?

Those Norks are dug in like ticks, and unless they have some magic artillery repellent, you can kiss the capitol and half the county's population goodbye.

Fucking stupid death wish or smoke-blowing for public consumption.

I give up. Have fun kids, it was nice knowing ya.

mc888's picture

Exactly. It's pure BS.

which cites an unidentified government official

They're just copying US fake news, hoping the NORKS are dumb enough to fall for it.

a Smudge by any other name's picture

They didn't tell the world, they told us in our news media which FYI is blacket out in North Korea. Those people don't even have televisions. They can't even speak or read English. Our top secret plans are entirely secure. You people are fear mongering fake news freakshows.

Having a little trouble reading the first sentence? Or is it the whole article you didn't read?

Tiger Rocks Dale's picture

Trying to provoke Fatboy into pulling the trigger 1st so the entire calamity to follow will be justified. MIC desperately wants a war, right now.  Daily mail reported that a strike on NK will come by "next year" which is obvious dis-info.

"a "surgical strike" scenario that could wipe out North Korean command and missile and nuclear facilities"

Regardless, the above statement should prove to the world that N.K. is NOT a nuclear threat and is "years and years away from a moment they can weaponize", as Russia says.

roadhazard's picture

Yeah, believe Pootin. Russia has increased by a large measure the material it sends NK. since Feb. Trump sez nothing about it.

HRClinton's picture

It's reverse psychology. It'll be a surprise, because they got them thinking that its propaganda.

It's like double secret probation for a renegade fraternity. 

SteveNYC's picture

Given the US' track record, and that of its allies being dragged in to these "conflicts" over the past 16 years......only a lunatic would carry out DC's bidding in this regard. I wonder how they'll sell it to the locals if Seoul gets hit in return? 

Giant Meteor's picture

Free geiger counters and a lifetime supply of duct tape ?

richsob's picture

Any country has a right to defend itself.  And I include Russia and China in that statement.  Imagine if Canada was hell bent on launching a nuclear attack on Russia and we were just standing by while the Russians asked us again and again to use our influence on Canada to defuse the situation.  And if we refused to help in any meaningful way, Russia would be absolutely justified to consider us an accessory to the crime if an attack was launched by Canada.  Same thing goes if the country being threatened was China.  Even "enemies" have to cooperate when the crazies start something that would be truly catastrophic.

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

Trust me rs

Russia and China will most definitely be defending themselves should the U.S. start it on North Korea!

richsob's picture

Jesus!  Taking out that idiot in North Korea doesn't threaten China or Russia one damn bit.  I'd be embarrassed to defend that POS as a friend of my country.  I know a lot of Russian posters on this website hate the U.S. but just use some common sense.  I wouldn't want one of America's "allies" attacking Russia or China.  It would only lead to huge numbers of dead innocents and likely a larger war THAT WOULD SERVE NO ONE'S LONG TERM BEST INTERESTS.  Take off the blinders, man.

Perhaps they could just send him a shitload of Mortal Kombat games ..

Send in Rodman ..

Thing is, Kim is simply misunderstood, probably mommy issues from lack of proper breast feeding ..

I dunno , he just wants a little recognition is all ..
