North Korea Warns "Nuclear War Could Break Out At Any Moment"

Tyler Durden's picture

Less than a day after South Korean and US naval forces kicked off their latest round of joint military drills, which are slated to run until the end of the week, North Korea’s deputy UN ambassador claimed during a fiery speech at the UN General Assembly that the Korean peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment,” the Associated Press reported.

Complaining to the UN General Assembly’s disarmament committee, Kim In Ryong argued that North Korea is the only country in the world that has been subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” from the United States since the 1970s, adding that the isolated North has the right to posses nuclear weapons in self-defense.

This latest warning arrives as the US and South Korea are bracing for another North Korean missile test. For weeks now, South Korean intelligence has suspected that its isolated neighbor could use the beginning of China’s National Party Congress, which begins on Thursday, as an opportunity for what would be a bold act of defiance, angering both the US and the North’s primary benefactor and only major ally, China. The North has also been threatening to unveil a new ICBM that intelligence services believe might be capable of striking the west coast.  

During his speech, Kim accused the US and South Korea of conducting military exercises involving “nuclear assets” and also mentioned a top-secret plan to stage a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership” developed by US and South Korean intelligence. The plan was exposed after North Korean hackers stole a large cache of military documents from the South.

Boasting about the country’s nuclear capabilities, Kim bragged that the North Korea had completed its “state nuclear force and thus became the full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges, including the atomic bomb, H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic rockets.”

“The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe,” he warned.

The dangerous rhetoric comes as Russia – which was recently rumored to be ramping up economic support for the North – reversed course and said it would curtail economic, scientific and other ties with North Korea in line with UN sanctions

Meanwhile, the European Union announced new sanctions on Pyongyang for developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving the North Korean crisis “will continue until the first bomb drops.” His commitment to diplomacy came despite

President Donald Trump’s tweets several weeks ago that his chief envoy was “wasting his time” trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom he derisively referred to as “Little Rocket Man.”

A report published by Russian media earlier today claiming that US and North Korean diplomats might be meeting at a conference in Moscow next week was quickly denied by the isolated country’s government, which said it’s not yet ready to begin negotiating with its greatest geopolitical foe.

Kim also reiterated that North Korea considers its missile arsenal “a precious strategic asset that cannot be reversed or bartered for anything.”

“Unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the U.S. is thoroughly eradicated, we will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table under any circumstances,” Kim said.

But in an interesting twist, Kim told the disarmament committee that while the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea — North Korea’s official name — would like to see nuclear weapons vanish from the face of the earth, aggressive expansion of nuclear arsenals has left the country no choice but to arm itself.

By accelerating the modernization of its weapons, the US is “reviving a nuclear arms race reminiscent of [the] Cold War era,” Kim said. He also noted that the nuclear weapon states, including the United States, boycotted negotiations for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons that was approved in July by 122 countries at the United Nations.

“The DPRK consistently supports the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the efforts for denuclearization of the entire world,” he said.


But as long as the United States rejects the treaty and “constantly threatens and blackmails the DPRK with nuclear weapons ... the DPRK is not in position to accede to the treaty.”

Engdahl says Kim Jong Un is false opposition.

Engdahl says that Kim Jong Un lived in Switzerland from 1991 until 2000. He attended the Liebefeld Steinhölzli school in Köniz near Bern. The strongest hint that Kim Jong Un is a "Pentagon" puppet and not a communist (Chinese) puppet is that he had China's best friend in Pyongyang, Jang Sung-taek, executed. He also ordered the systematic execution of all other members of Jang's family including children and grandchildren (and others that were considered too close to China).

Other hints are that he is usefully (to the US) provocative and doesn't seem to listen to China.

Engdahl also thinks North Korea is an Pentagon Vassal State, but it seems more likely that Kim Jong Un is indeed a "Pentagon" man but that North Korea is (i.e., will be treated as) an enemy state.

Remember: The first rule for fighting a (real) war is to place your own puppet as the leader of the enemy.

Also, one should not forget that Trump, Obama, Bush and Clinton are all Jews.

And as an example of how real wars are fought,....

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

It seems pretty weird when you first read it, but its clearly true.

Giant Meteor & Oct 16, 2017 9:37 PM "I like your disclaimer"

If the article had been finished it would present a more powerful case, but it is clearly true.

You read it, and things that didn't make sense, suddenly make sense. It rings true.

By the way, not one single fact from the article:

has been debated on ZeroHedge.

It's like every single person (well other than me) who comments on ZeroHedge would rather keep quite about the topic.

I wonder why that might be?

Giant Meteor's picture

"I wonder why that might be?"

Well Jack, let us not mince words here, so please do tell me why, in your opinion, why?

As to the topic and sourcing you have presented above, I would imagine more than a few hours of cursory reading may be required. Perhaps some weeks, months, or even years of study even. But let us cut right to the chase. For the sake of brevity, I am willing to stipulate that ALL the material as you have presented it, is 100% irrefutably, that is undeniably true and correct.

Now then, having so stipulated and as such, I leave it to YOU to take the conversation to the next level of discussion and enlightenment, based upon these true facts, as you have presented them.

You have the floor, and I am all ears ... so let's put it all together now eh?

Slack Jack's picture

Giant Meteor. You cut to the chase in a real long winded way.

Are you asking why did Hitler play this role?

I don't really know.

I am torn between: "Hitler was trying to save the Jews from the real Nazis" and "divide and conquer to subjugate Europe and make the United States (which was a country of little importance before the wars) number one". Perhaps both were in play. Perhaps something else.

Do you have a theory?

RumpleShitzkin's picture

This miles Mathis cat is something else.

Looks like this weekend will be blown sorting through that web.

Holy shit.

Giant Meteor's picture

Yes, I do tend to be a blowhard.

I'll tell ya, I'm all full up with theories at present, but you let me sleep on it, and I will get back to ya ;) But while I'm sleeping, ponder my primary question to you, as to why do YOU believe folks are avoiding this discussion, as you alluded to above.

You rest easy now,

The parasitic elites are preparing for the largest economic downturn or better collapse in human history. It will be the largest theft or heist by the parasitic elites. All well planned, all international banking laws in place for the final wealth transfer. All the savings and pensions will be gone and the serfs will literally starve.
The parasites on the top need an excuse for this misery, or the plebs will turn against the 1%. That cannot happen. So bombard the people with fake news to take any sense of reality. The North Korea kabuki theater is one in many.
Than add a lot false flags and hoaxes, to disarm the people and spread dissent between the plebs. Divide and conquer.
For the rest who belongs to the upper middle class (until the crash) they serve bread and circuses, to entertain. Groupon are the food stamps for the middle class.
Once enough people are on Opiats, disillusioned, sick and don't care anymore they will start a war. The last act, getting as many as possible to the slaughterhouse. Depopulation bitches.
The ones that survive will be serfs with RFID chips implemented. AI, self driving cars and robots take many many jobs.
Think of the Georgia guide stone, they are already creating the reality of our future. But the sheeple prefer TV.

Well, it's either all of this, or someone at any moment is going to run out on stage and yell  ,,,


Which, if it ends up the latter being the case, it would be some of the funniest shit that crew has done ever since dearly beloved Bluto departed, not to be confused with our own BLOTTO  ...


By the way, Rapunzal.

In no way was I attempting to impugn the fine points of your commentary, that is, with my little tongue in cheek response above. We are my friend firmly and well entrenched in bizzaro land, and that of course was the basis for my own poor, inane comment. No disrespect was intended ....

I would only add in regards to "The parasitic elites are preparing for the largest economic downturn or better collapse in human history. It will be the largest theft or heist by the parasitic elites."

The parasitic elites have already pulled that one off on multiple occasion, over, and over , and over again, throughout the annals, although it certainly does appear, the stakes are increasingly becoming of modernized neccessity, much higher, and events moving ever faster. Things are generally  not lookin so bright for the distracted and divided plebes, as you had mentioned yourself, but also, whom seem to be offing themselves, all by themselves, with reckless abandon. Obesity, narcs, over medicated, mis-educated, all the rest.

Little further assistance and/or required interventions by said elites, would be neccessary, although one certainly cannot rule out the narcisistic, militarized death cults, overkill being their default position ...

I do agree , by the natures, and sheer volume of these latest frauds, trickeries, and sleights of hand, well let us just say, the shit is getting fantastically deeper all the way around . My own hunch frankly is that the parasitic elites are not nearly as cohesive, nor as organized or even better educated as they may at first appear to be. They too, in their own way, are having their very own, deer caught in the headlights moment. .. but of course they would not need to be very much more effcient nor organized, as apparently they are mostly holdin all the good cards at present.

You packed a lot in there my friend, hit every note just right  ..

Well done ..

You aren't waiting for the jewish "messiah' to show up and give the world to their rule?  Please, be honest.  You and the muslims have a lot more in common than you do with Christians.

The Messiah wasn't Jewish as the term is used in modern day English.

That's why I put quotes around messiah.  Jesus was of the tribe of Judah, not "jewish" in the sense used in Pharisaism(Judaism).
