North Korea Responds To Trump Threat, Says It Is "Seriously Considering" Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike On Guam

Tyler Durden's picture

Challenge accepted.

If Trump thought that his bluff would be sufficient to finally shut up North Korea, and put an end to Kim's provocative behavior, well... bluff called because North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency reported moments ago that not only did N.Korea escalate the tensions up another notch, but explicitly warned that it could carry out a "pre-emptive operation once the US shows signs of provocation", and that it is "seriously considering a strategy to strike Guam with mid-to-long range missiles."

Story highlights from Reuters:


And the full report:

U.S Should be Prudent under Present Acute Situation: Spokesman For KPA Strategic Force


Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) released the following statement on August 8:


Recently, the U.S. test-fired ICBM Minuteman-3 at its Vandenberg Air Force Base in Califrnia State targeting the DPRK, the fourth one this year, openly staged an actual nuclear strike drill targeting the strategic objects of the DPRK by mobilizing its nuclear strategic bombers formation stationed at its Anderson Air Force Base on Guam in the Pacific. It is driving the regional situation to an extreme pitch by bringing various kinds of nuclear strategic hardware before the very eyes of the DPRK. The Strategic Force of the KPA has taken special note of such maneuvers.


Such military maneuvers of the U.S. may provoke a dangerous conflict under the present extremely acute situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula.


Typically, the nuclear strategic bombers from Guam frequent the sky above south Korea to openly stage actual war drills and muscle-flexing in a bid to strike the strategic bases of the DPRK. This grave situation requires the KPA to closely watch Guam, the outpost and beachhead for invading the DPRK, and necessarily take practical actions of significance to neutralize it.


In the morning of August 8 the air pirates of Guam again appeared in the sky above south Korea to stage a mad-cap drill simulating an actual war.


Supreme Commander of the revolutionary forces of the DPRK Kim Jong Un, estimating the nature of the military action taken by the U.S. forces in the Asia-Pacific region, once recommended examination of a powerful and effective action plan for containing the U.S. imperialists' aggression hardware as the U.S. forces are resorting to inappropriate and reckless military actions in the sensitive area, while going on the rampage in the waters off the Korean peninsula and the Pacific waters.


The KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the U.S. major military bases on Guam including the Anderson Air Force Base in which the U.S. strategic bombers, which get on the nerves of the DPRK and threaten and blackmail it through their frequent visits to the sky above south Korea, are stationed and to send a serious warning signal to the U.S.


It should immediately stop its reckless military provocation against the state of the DPRK so that the latter would not be forced to make an unavoidable military choice.


The plan is to be soon reported to the Supreme Command soon after going through full examination and completion and will be put into practice in a multi-concurrent and consecutive way any moment once Kim Jong Un, supreme commander of the nuclear force of the DPRK, makes a decision.


The execution of this plan will offer an occasion for the Yankees to be the first to experience the might of the strategic weapons of the DPRK closest. 


Explicitly speaking again, the strategic weapons which the DPRK manufactured at the cost of blood and sweat, risking everything, are not a bargaining  thing for getting acknowledgement from others and for bartering for anything, but they serve as substantial military means for resolutely countering the  U.S. political and economic pressure and military threat as what has been observed now.


Will only the U.S. have option called "preventive war" as is claimed by it?


It is a daydream for the U.S. to think that its mainland is an invulnerable Heavenly kingdom.


The U.S. should clearly face up to the fact that the ballistic rockets of the Strategic Force of the KPA are now on constant standby, facing the Pacific Ocean and pay deep attention to their azimuth angle for launch.


It should make a proper option so as not to regret today in the future.

Incidentally, here is a 1999 interview courtesy of @NorthmanTrader, laying out Donald Trump's thoughts on launching a pre-emptive strike on North Korea.

Needless to say, with both leaders determined to keep escalating until the adversary folds, this seemingly inevitable military conflict will not have a happy ending.

The good news for Guam, is that the US has had a THAAD anti-ballistic missile battery on the Pacific island since 2015; in fact it was the first permanent deployment of THAAD outside continental United States.

On the American Territory of Guam in the western Pacific, is Task Force Talon, the world’s only deployed and active THAAD battery site. This is the world’s newest missile defense capability that can intercept missiles in lower space and in the upper atmosphere with its extremely powerful, long range X-Band radar that defends U.S. soil and American citizens in Guam against North Korean ballistic missiles. Equally important, Task Force Talon projects U.S. strategic air power into Asia through B-52 bombers deployed at Anderson Air Force Base and a U.S. submarine navy port as well as the largest American fuel and munitions depot in the Pacific. Last month, the B-52 squadron from Guam was used in power projecting flights over the internationally disputed artificial Chinese islands in the South China Sea. This squadron has also  flown over the DMZ in warning to North Korea in the past. Task Force Talon in Guam remains indispensable not only for American power projection, but also delivering extended deterrence for U.S. allies in the Asia Pacific region.

Finally, here is the statement issued moments ago by Madeline Z. Bordallo, Guam rep.

An EMP, that they pin on NK, would thin the herd plenty.

We're prepping accordingly, as the most likely hot war scenario.

 People really are idiots to take any of this seriously.

So "Sky News" a deepstate propaganda organ tells the world that Yohap News has said that Kim is considering nuking Guam.

Is there any way a fellow can confirm this obviously overt statement. I cannot see why Kim would want to "wind_up" the west and get the USSA to start a premtive attack which would destroy is little empire. My guess is that he has made a deal with the devil in return for some cash (fiat) The deal being "keep the fear rising" so the coming market crash will have a distraction.

The other explanation is simply Kim and his lapdogs (who wear oversized hats) have not made any such statement and we in the west have no other way to confirm or deny any of it.

I smell bullshit.

The new self-learning AI supercomputer down at 

MAD headquarters in NYC has just figured out a

way around the nuke standoff position. It's going

to trade all its pawns in order to decapitate a king.

Then Apple will be the only cell phone maker left,

so it's a two-fer as far as Wall Strasse folks goes.

Same as it ever was, well since JFK was offed by the cia/banker cartel. Puppets keep the masses from revolting by saying whatever is needed to subdue them ("feel good" and "tough guy" stories always work on the emotions of the dumbed downed muricans), while the likes of old yeller continue to practice anal usury w/o lube.

Trump only lets the bankers and generals think they have the power. In reality, he's in full control. He's  sharpening his protestant sword and donning his red, white and blue armor to do final battle with the Deep State! You're watching a real patriot handily winning a 29-dimensional chess match: he'll get the Deep State to start a nuclear war, thereby exposing them and their criminal insanity, for all the world to see! They'll back themselves into a radioactive corner; you just wait and see! Once that's finished, he's also going to arrest all the Goldmanites after he allowed them to dig in, knowing they'd take the bait. He'll end the Fed, put us back on the gold standard, AIPAC will be banished from America, and the Neocons will go on trial for their lives. America will be great again!!! Huzzah!

If they don't do it but they are running their mouths for some other purpose--> yes, it sucks.

There is nothing good about any of this.

These are your world leaders at work for you.

Re: "Clown boys"

You left off one important group ...

Corporate Media = Clown Boys

VIP Clown Boys. Without all their stories, the clowns would be out of business.

Or: If they wrote the stories they could or should, the clowns would be out of business. You might have noticed. They have chosen to not write such stories.

secretargentman's picture

Does Trump's threat now mean that Kim has justification for a preemptive strike? At least according to apparent US doctrine? Jusr askin'...

null's picture

I think you are confusing the meaning of the word "apparent."

To be fair, probably thinking of the other presidents who still needed "a parent" to help them wipe their ass.

Trump is so PETRIFIED his son is going to prison for TREASON,

and Mueller will find dirt on Trump's Soviet MAFIYA dealings,

while Little Jared will SKATE OFF TO TEL AVIV, that Trump has

pulled all the stops, and is threating the very lives of several

MILLION Koreans living along the DMZ and in Seoul.

If that doesn't SHOW YOU TRUMP'S TRUE VALUES, what does?

He would sell your granddaugher to a strip club for one shekel.

RE: the military not agreeing to war ...

Interesting hypothetical you pose. I'm going to make an assumption here:

"Neocons" have been running the show for at least 24 years, maybe longer. These neocons have had a lot of say in what generals have been promoted and who has obtained the positions of real power in the military. I'm guessing that almost all of the non-neocons have been purged by now, or were never promoted above the rank of Lt. Col.

 Anyway, getting the top brass to go along with a war/attack on North Korea will be a given imo. They are either eager to make their superiors happy with them and thus continue to rise up the ranks. Or: They actually believe all this neocon BS. Or both.

I think the North Korean threat is extremely underestimated by the market, remember that the little overweight fucker has killed his uncle cold blood and also his half-brother plus he is a schizophrenic psychopath probably also paranoid because he knows everybody wants to kill him. 

And now he has miniaturized nukes and vectors for them, with the US bases in South Korea and Japan at reach that is serious stuff without even speaking of WMD than he can give to ISIS if he wants to play an asymmetric card.
