BREAKING - North Korea readying nukes for possible pre-emptive strikes

16 posts in this topic

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered his country's nuclear weapons made ready for use at a moment's notice, the official state news agency reported Friday.

Kim also said his country will ready its military so it is prepared to carry out pre-emptive attacks, calling the current situation very precarious, according to KCNA.

On Thursday, North Korea fired six short-range projectiles into the sea off its east coast, South Korean officials said, just hours after the U.N. Security Council approved the toughest sanctions on the North in two decades for its recent nuclear test and long-range rocket launch.

The firings also came shortly after South Korea's National Assembly passed its first legislation on human rights in North Korea.

The North Korean projectiles, fired from the eastern coastal town of Wonsan, flew about 100 to 150 kilometers (60 to 90 miles) before landing in the sea, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

It wasn't immediately known exactly what North Korea fired, and the projectiles could be missiles, artillery or rockets, South Korea's Defense Ministry said.

North Korea routinely test-fires missiles and rockets, but often conducts weapons launches when angered at international condemnation.

Thursday's firings were seen as a "low-level" response to the U.N. sanctions, with North Korea unlikely to launch any major provocation until its landmark ruling Workers' Party convention in May, according to Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

Yeah, true. S. Korea would be in the most danger, but if they do attack them, then all hell will break loose on N. Korea because the U.S. is going to definitely defend them. So, really, it would be foolish for him to do anything. But crazy people seem to be in charge just about everywhere, so who knows what he might do?

And just why has this 70 long years of American terrorism against the people of all of Korea been tolerated by the world. Because of the tremendous power of US propaganda.

 

Quote

I have just read The Korean War: A History by Bruce Cumings (2010), professor of history at the University of Chicago. I first saw Cumings interviewed in Regis Tremblay’s extraordinary film, The Ghosts of Jeju, which documents the uprising of the people of the southern Korean island of Jeju in 1948 and the campaign of the present-day islanders to stop the building of a base with American missiles aimed provocatively at China.

Like most Koreans, the farmers and fishing families protested the senseless division of their nation between north and south in 1945 – a line drawn along the 38th Parallel by an American official, Dean Rusk, who had “consulted a map around midnight on the day after we obliterated Nagasaki with an atomic bomb,” wrote Cumings. The myth of a “good” Korea (the south) and a “bad” Korea (the north) was invented.

In fact, Korea, north and south, has a remarkable people’s history of resistance to feudalism and foreign occupation, notably Japan’s in the 20th century. When the Americans defeated Japan in 1945, they occupied Korea and often branded those who had resisted the Japanese as “commies”. On Jeju island, as many as 60,000 people were massacred by militias supported, directed and, in some cases, commanded by American officers.

This and other unreported atrocities were a “forgotten” prelude to the Korean War (1950-53) in which more people were killed than Japanese died during all of world war two. Cumings’ gives an astonishing tally of the degree of destruction of the cities of the north is astonishing: Pyongyang 75%, Sariwon 95%, Sinanju 100%. Great dams in the north were bombed in order to unleash internal tsunamis. “Anti-personnel” weapons, such as Napalm, were tested on civilians. Cumings’ superb investigation helps us understand why today’s North Korea seems so strange: an anachronism sustained by an enduring mentality of siege.

“The unhindered machinery of incendiary bombing was visited on the North for three years,” he wrote, “yielding a wasteland and a surviving mole people who had learned to love the shelter of caves, mountains, tunnels and redoubts, a subterranean world that became the basis for reconstructing a country and a memento for building a fierce hatred through the ranks of the population. Their truth is not cold, antiquarian, ineffectual knowledge.” Cumings quotes Virginia Wolf on how the trauma of this kind of war “confers memory.”

North Korea again threatens nuke strikes on US, South Korea

North Korea is yet again threatening nuclear strikes on the United States and South Korea, this time in reaction to the start of huge U.S.-South Korean military drills.

Belligerent threats have been a staple of young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But they spike especially when Washington and Seoul stage what they say are annual defensive springtime war games.

Pyongyang says the drills, which start Monday and run through the end of April, are invasion rehearsals.

Japan blasts North Korea for provocation over military drills

Japan demanded Monday that North Korea not engage in provocative acts after the nuclear-armed country vowed to “launch an all-out offensive” attack on the United States and South Korea over their largest-ever annual military exercises started earlier in the day.

<snip>

In a statement issued Monday via the official Korean Central News Agency, North Korea’s National Defense Commission said, “We have a military operation plan of our style to liberalize south Korea and strike the U.S. mainland,” citing “powerful nuclear strike means” targeting U.S. bases in the Asia-Pacific region and the U.S. mainland.
