North Korea is issuing threats again. This time they say they would annihilate South Korea and hit the United States with a ‘Super-Mighty Preemptive Strike’ that will leave the entire United States in ashes. Kin Jong-un is the Mouth That Roared. But, I really thing he believes his own BS and that makes him dangerous. China is assembling bombers who will be able to take action the moment North Korea starts trouble and Russia is moving troops to the border to stave off large numbers of refugees who might take advantage of Jong-un being preoccupied.
It is doubtful that North Korea has the missiles to actually reach the United States but they probably will have within 5 to 6 years. That’s why we need to act now rather than waiting.
Rodong Sinmun newspaper wrote:
“In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes.”
Reuters notes that North Korea “regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States and has shown no let-up in its belligerence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang.”
Also, the North Koreans are characteristically incensed by the current round of U.S.-South Korean military exercises, an aerial training program called “Max Thunder,” which is scheduled to run through April 28. North Korea always denounces training exercises involving America, South Korea, and other allies, portraying them as practice sessions for a full-scale invasion and sometimes even as the first stage of an invasion disguised as a training exercise.
Pyongyang’s rhetoric might be as barbaric as ever, but its actions suggest pressure from the U.S. and China has forced the Kim regime to back away from further provocations, at least temporarily.
