"A [North Korean] foreign ministry spokesman said: "Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to pre-emptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest.""
North Korea [DPRK] has been vowing to annihilate the imperialist rabid dogs otherwise known as the United States, because the DPRK claims we are carrying out war exercises with our "puppets" in South Korea in an effort to deter the DPRK's nuclear program.
In fact, we ARE carrying out joint military exercises with South Korea, utilizing thousands of U.S. troops. No explanation for how we are carrying out such exercises with the sequester in effect (sarcasm intended), but we are managing somehow. Maybe we're borrowing the money from North Korea's ally, China. Btw, Rosetta Stone is offering it's "Learn Chinese" package at a 40% discount, if you wish to get ready for the future. As the Boys Scouts say, be prepared.
But I digress.
Is the DPRK correct ? Are we engaging in military exercises in preparation for a strike against North Korea ??? Beats me. Only the most transparent administration in history knows that for sure, but it's not unusual for us to be doing military exercises with South Korea. We've been doing that for years, probably ever since the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement. We have 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea currently.
I'm not sure what North Korea's Brilliant Comrade, Kim jong-un, is thinking, but how is President Obama going to do anything other than play hardball with North Korea over nukes now ? North Korea's threats eliminate any other possibility. If Obama didn't have military strikes on the table before, he'll sure have them on the table now. It's like Kim jong-un is ASKING to be attacked by having his government engage in these threats.
Brilliant Comrade better watch out what he asks for. He just might get it.
