North Korea claims it has an invincible army and is just waiting for the right time to wage the “final sacred war”.
We are also eagerly awaiting the cure for Aids, Cancer, and Ebola the country claimed to have almost two years ago…
But enough about that, back to this great war.
The country claims the strike will turn into a sea of fire and destroy “bluffing US imperialists”.
The comments were made in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper. A very reliable source led by the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
The article, translated by KNCA Watch, told its North Korean readers the country’s army was an ‘invincible army equipped with powerful strike means and ever-victorious tactics.
It held a special mention for Donald Trump’s administration, saying, ‘the US imperialists are trying hard to attain its purpose through military threat and blackmail while brandishing all sorts of strategic and tactical weapons of demonstrative and threatening nature’.
‘But it is nothing but a bluffing of the mentally weak and a last-ditch effort of those with miserable end at hand,’ it added.
‘The army of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), full of the spirit of annihilating the enemies, is waiting for an order to wage a final sacred war, with their guns leveled at the detestable targets.
‘Our strike will all at once turn into sea of fire, completely destroying enemies and winning a final victory.’
The article insisted these were not empty threats, and called the DPRK’s stance on defense was an “everlasting treasure”.
They claimed the military must develop nuclear weapons (wait, what happened to all their heavy equipment they showed off earlier?) because of the “hostile” policy of the U.S., which retains 28,500 troops in South Korea.
Kim’s Korea has provoked the periodic military clashes that break out with South Korea, and has ramped up its nuclear programme recently with a number of missile tests.
In March 2010, a North Korean torpedo allegedly sank a South Korean naval vessel, killing 46 sailors.
Months later, North Korea fired artillery at a South Korean island, killing two South Korean marines and two civilians.
South Korea returned fire, but it’s unclear if North Korea suffered casualties.
North Korea is the only country to have carried out nuclear explosions in the 21st century. Between 1994 and 2008, there were 16 ballistic missile tests and one nuclear test carried out.
Since 2009, 72 missile tests and 4 nuclear ones.
Even China is opposed to these tests. Experts say North Korea may have the power to hit South Korea or Japan with a nuclear weapon but it still has years of development to go before it could hit the U.S. mainland.
Given that their most recent tests have been failures, we think North Korea has a long way to go before they even become a semi-decent army.
Do you agree?
