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.

Bio and Chemical weapons - the poor man's nukes.

Fat Boy is a big-drinker. Word is he will throw back a bottle of Macallans and screw his 'comfort' secretaries all night and then pass out. He loves meat and not veggie and had a bad case of gout awhile back. He is pre-diabetic and has some weird moods. 

He only has a few shots for his nukes but he can send Seoul bio weapon packages all day long. Those will be tough to trace back to him. 

Yeah, if you are in Seoul you want to be stocking up on some HEPA air masks and purifiers and some HAZMAT equipment and make sure you have a decontamination set up in the front door. Shaking hands? Forget that shit!

The Satanic ZIonist Bitches know how to excite the malleable mushed minds of the American masses, even here at ZH, with their false flag events ... about to take place in...."Guam"(?).

If you really believe the deep state is hankering for a nuclear war, you need to tweak your tin foil hat.

sinbad2's picture

Yes they are hankering for a LIMITED nuclear war, they want to prove to the world that the US is still numero uno, and any nation that does not follow orders will be slapped down.

debunker's picture

What about NK's neighbor, China?

Think they'll just stand aside like Donny's little bitches..?

HRClinton's picture

Yes, because they will False Fag a place like Guam, just so they can get their sucker punch as cause for just war.

Which will force China and Russia to stand down and watch NK pay the price for retribution. 

"All wars are (((Bankers'))) wars."

Anything to keep the USD as top dog, and prevent China from building OBOR. In case you're wondering why the US is making all this fuss.

First we take out their subs . Then massive first strike with low yield nukes on the artillary and nuke launchers plus a trident mirv'ed hit on their command control and pee wee's palace. They wouldn't get off a shot.

My guess, we pull the trigger before the end of the week.

Will you pay for it? And can we send you to defend Gaum?

Because I can't make it. I will be busy here gutting deep state.

Teecher: "And what did you do on your summer vacation Donald?"

novictim's picture

Fine.  But the US Military must not distinguish China from N. Korea.  China created N. Korea.  It is their monster and they know it.  China will strike, if not immediately, at some other point. 

And while we are on it, if the US does face a major nuclear strike, Mecca, Medina, Kuwait City, Riyadh, Istanbul, Islamabad, Tehran, Lahore, etc...every major Chinese city should be matched to every major Islamic city. SLate them all for the fire.  War is not fair and when you lose a million citizens to the animals that ride out coat tails, you terminate the animals.

The US created North Korea, and tried to give it to the Soviet Union, but the Soviets refused the gift.

Dean "Rusk returned to America to work briefly for the War Department in Washington. He joined the Department of State in February 1945, and worked for the office of United Nations Affairs. In the same year, he suggested splitting Korea into spheres of U.S. and of Soviet influence at the 38th parallel north."

Attacking Guam could literally cripple the US.

Sorry, couldn't say that with a straight face.

Only one way to deal with a bully like Kim. He needs to be smacked in the face. Hard.

Now is the time for an above ground weapons test by NK. It would drive everybody around the bend.....

Give Me Some Truth's picture

Re: Above ground nuke test

This might stop a war. They need to do this and invite American officials to witness the test/demonstration.

(Some have argued that America should have done this with its test of "Fat Boy" in the desert pre-Hiroshima. Not saying I would have done this, but I get the arguments).

As long as the CIA...oops...I mean crazy fat boy , only takes out the South end and not Hoe island in the North.

The rich and connected will still get out of serving. Lotsa bone spurs, Cheney-esque deferments, etc. Only the poor are expected to go die for the last place the rich looted.

Yep....and while your at it, let's make a Constitutional amendment that states "All Leaders in Congress and Senate are required to send their sons and daughters first in the event of a war.."  

"Generals Gather in their masses......."   You know the rest.

Don't need troops on the ground to shut down North Korea's nuclear option.  Israel did it to Syria, and there was no reprisal. 

TalkToLind's picture

The U.S. will never reinstate the draft because that wouldn't be kosher. However sending goyim kids to war voluntarily is kosher.

veritas semper vinces's picture

Yes and no.

If you really want to end all wars,get rid of the Federal Reserve which is financing them

I get your point, but I can guarantee you if my daughter is abducted to go fight in a war, I'll open up a second front.

These are just words BUT Kim Jong-un could perhaps disrupt all trade with Asia, which gives him massive leverage. I'm guessing he's got some VX nerve gas in a bunch of missiles. But still just words, and we're all entirely desensitized to media-based threats.
