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.

Thank you.

That little cock gobbling korean Hitler is waving around his nuclear weapons and threatening peace loving souls.

He needs to be stopped.

I don't do the Nazi worship thing, sorry just not my thing and I don't do hate America first.

I'm just pointing out the existential fact that Kin Jung Un is a cock gobblin Hitler that's all, and that aint cool.

Okay President drew the line and that fat little psycho just stepped over it within hours - now you have a decision to make, one which I hope you already made BEFORE you made the threat; it is only going to get worse the longer you wait.  

Address the nation TONIGHT...line out the past threats, carefully explain the rapid advances that N. Korea has apparently made recently and why you believe you have been left no choice.

*Either act with overwhelming force, or just STFU.

Duc888's picture



You are not a player in this, neither am I.  The players are Russia, China, Japan, NK and SK.  Trump would do best to just let fat elvis simmer in his own juices.

dirty fingernails's picture

Exactly. Ignore him. Leave him alone. Stop provoking him. Negotiate. Real negotiations, not the usual absurd requests. If he ever did try to pull some BS and attack the US, then nobody in the world would oppose the US Mil smashing everything in NK. That's the ONLY way to be the good guys in this.

Can everybody just get along?

Like, who the flying fricka wants to see nukes flying around...upwind?

One pop goes the weasel and it will all dump fallout for the rest of time on the North American continent.

Does that resonant with any of the warmongering knuckleheads, or idiot slaves who support them?

Harsh radioactive fallout coming down in the jet stream all the way east around the globe to Russia and beyond from the Korea area, will fall for the rest of time! his pet monkey puppet soterobama sidekick too....bush pulling strings in the what's next?

Something stupid happens to trigger an all out more stupid event just at the right timing after some distraction happens to take the attention off the growing herds of hounds all closing in on the babylonian child murderers in govt. These arseholes WILL MAKE SOMETHING EVIL HAPPEN to save their fish scaly lizard piss stinking hides.

Look the fark out people...evil is rising like never before.

Justice must swing her Double-Edged Sword. Good people are now being called upon to get up and get out to save your country. SAVE YOUR AMERICAN LIVES BEFORE SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES.

This carkbite head distractor clown McBastard is determined to further the bush cheny etc MIC betrayus plot to subvert the presidency. It is wrong and very horrible to see the evil corruption so out of satan’s slithery minions all gone zombie stupid mad crazy to save the queen cunthag from prosecution.

All hands...double ding vigilance.

Got water filter?



Exterminate rats on sight.

Is this really to distract us from the failing american economy and the fall of the petrodollar? Will a false flag emp attack happen here and NK will be blamed? Why NK now? They already  have had practice drills in NYC of an emp attack. Hmmmm....

Ding..ding...ding...a potential winner here, people.

Someone should do a betting board for people to bet on which kind of govt sponsored and probagated false flag event will happen, and what day. Price for entry, One Mil.

4.meanwhile crash market blaming war/ensale the US population further

The rottenchilds OWN NK and the fat puppet is just another ziostooge for the farkin banksters who are the ONLY ONES that profit from woar and massive POPULATION ELIMINATION.


There has to be another leaving the entire continent ALONE!

I may live near los angales but it would be great if that many queer libtards got fried

NDXTrader's picture

These threads are really something. All I can say is that whatever you think of the US, and whomever runs it, the military has spent at least $20 trillion, both on and off the books, since the turn of the century to develop killing devices. We have EMPs that will fry any launch device the Norks try to use and shut down anything using electricity in country, we have non-nuclear devices now as powerful as the atomics dropped on Japan, we have aircraft that they can't pick up on radar, and cloaked subs encircling the country. That doesn't include satellite and laser systems. This would last all of 10 minutes. The threats are that lone artillery units not wiped out on first strike that can hit Seoul and the refugee crisis.

coast1's picture

i understand what you are saying, but all I have seen is the west screwing up one thing after the other..they would use EMP on North Korea and it would hit the U.S. instead...they may have some technology, but they are also dumb as rocks...I have seen this in government jobs I worked for on contract...hundreds of millions of dollars and its a mess...Then I work for a 70 million dollar facility for the Japanese and it actually went somewhat smoothly.. 

NDXTrader's picture

The US military's problem is never conventional warfare, it's the insurgency. We have incredible toys, and those are just the ones the public knows about, but have never figured out how to pacify a native population (unless you count Western Europe and Japan after WWII, but they saw Russia and China as a bigger threat at the time). The conventional part of this is the easy part, it's what comes after

SmallerGovNow2's picture

"we have non-nuclear devices now as powerful as the atomics dropped on Japan"...


NDXTrader's picture

You might be surprised. Maybe we'll see soon

EnDimoVeritas's picture

You have no idea what kilo- means in this context.


NDXTrader's picture

I know exactly what kilo means

NDXTrader's picture

And just to elaborate on that further - yes, the biggest conventional bomb the US has ever used publically is 50-100 times smaller in yield than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. But going back to the original Korean War the problem of nuclear weapons is that practically you can't use them. It is a red line that Truman (in Korea) and every President thereafter refused to cross. So, you have a weapon you really can't use. Therefore, since the 50s there has been tons of research into other unstable molecules, sonar, laser, anything you can think of to see if a comparable yield could be accomplished without being called a nuclear explosion. There hasn't been a state actor to try any of the advances on. The conventional part of the first Gulf War was the only thing close, but that was essentially over before it started. Let's put it this way, if you think the MOAB used in Afghanistan was anything close to the biggest conventional yield we have you are wrong

johnnycanuck's picture

Yet you've been in Afghanistan for what, 16 years now?

This ain't the World of Warcraft / some video game dude. Step away from the X Box controller.

NDXTrader's picture

What do you not understand about the difference between conventional and asymmetric warfare, dipshit? We aren't going to be sending in a force to take the ground. We excel at bombing shit from the sky though

Miss Informed's picture

"We" "excel" only in mayhem.

Dickweed Wang's picture

None of the sci-fi weapons you've described can do significant damage to all of the underground bunkers and tunnel systems the DPRK has been constructing in that country since the 1950's. So what do you think is going to happen when after the USA does it's star wars attack on them and the day after the KPA pops out of the ground and sets up their thousands of artilary pieces and ballistic missiles??  Once the inventory of US cruise missiles and other high tech goodies is used up they're toast.

NDXTrader's picture

You are kidding, right? Even the MOAB they've shown in public can collapse a massive tunnel system. And if you think what they've shown is what they've got then ok. But let's just say for the sake of argument you are correct, a few tactical nukes would take care of that problem

Dickweed Wang's picture

The DPRK faced US nukes during the Korean war (McAarthur wanted to use them). Their undeground bunkers and tunnels were specifically designed to withstand not only tactical nukes but strategic ones as well.  A so called MOAB wouldn't scratch them and neither would a 50kt "tactical" nuke.  A 1mt ground penetrating strategic nuke right on target might take out one complex but there are HUNDREDS of them - and the USA doesn't know where most of them are for sure.  The US would never use 100-300 strategic nukes on them that might have a chance to destroy a good part of their underground complexes because China and Russia would retaliate in kind (it's the same problem the Russians and Chinese have with our Minuteman sites where each Minuteman site has 10's of nukes targeted at it).  Remember that even though modern nukes are extremely destrutive weapons even the largest in use only have a blast radius of about 15-20 miles or so and their zone of total destruction/vaporization is only a few miles centered at ground zero.

NDXTrader's picture

Let's just say I know a lot about tunnel systems. And much of what you say is true, however all tunnel systems have to come to the surface somewhere. And yes we do know where they are because they give off a heat signature that can be detected by satellite - as they all must have heating, cooling and sanitation systems (no matter how crude) or lacking that people have to breathe which expels hot air. There are clever ways to make even the most complex, deep and sheltered tunnel system a death trap

MrSteve's picture

Your facts are not facts, so I call BS.
The largest fusion nukes have blast radius of some 50 miles but that much overkill is rarely needed. The US MPs keep the tactical nuke artillery shell access keys in South Korea. The war games for NK attacking Seoul has been refined for a solution, per the MPs' keys to the ammo vaults. Enhanced radiation weaponry will wilt NK forces no matter where they hole up. That's called second strike capability which the US has via the Triad. Drones and cruise missles are a leg of the SAC bomber capability. Your assurance we don't know re: underground locations is more unsourced BS.
