North Korea Escalating Threats Against the United States … Kim Jong Un says Ready “To Settle Accounts With the U.S.”
And you thought North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was a lunatic, enter his son Kim Jong Un …
The conflict between the United States and North Korea escalated when as reported at Reuters, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and “judged the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation”. Um, “ready to settle accounts with America”? Meanwhile we have an absentee president in Obama more concerned with dividing Americans against each other than protecting them.
I’M A LITTLE DESPOT, SHORT AND STOUT …
North Korea put its missile units on standby on Friday to attack U.S. military bases in South Korea and the Pacific, after the United States flew two nuclear-capable stealth bombers over the Korean peninsula in a rare show of force.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and “judged the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation”, the official KCNA news agency said.
KCNA said North Korea and the United States could only settle their differences by “physical means”. The North has an arsenal of Soviet-era short-range Scud missiles that can hit South Korea but its longer-range Nodong and Musudan missiles, which could in theory hit U.S. Pacific bases, are untested.
This was supposed to be in reaction to the US’s display of military might. Some U.S. officials argued that the bomber flights would be unduly provocative and akin to recent North Korean actions, which these officials said have irresponsibly ratcheted up tensions. Looks like they were correct.
