North Korea Threatens Action Against White House, Pentagon And US Mainland

Posted in: , , ,

North Korea has released a statement threatening attacks against the U.S. government and other citadels in America including the Pentagon. This is following the hack on SONY which led to the studio pulling The Interview movie which centers around the assasination of North Korean president, Kim Jung Un.

The North Korea government denies they are behind the SONY attack, but have made it obvious from the start that they are outraged by the film. They called the hacking a righteous deed even as they offered to work on a joint inquiry with the US authorities to fish out those behind it.

Impending Nuclear War Between United States and North Korea?

Posted in: , ,

Is it time for us to become scared? Over the past few days, the rhetoric has been escalating on the relations between North and South Korea, and the role of the United States if it ever came to a war between both countries. Today, both North Korea and America took it a step further. North Korea said it had "ratified" a merciless attack against the United States, potentially involving a "diversified nuclear strike".

"We formally inform the White House and Pentagon that the ever-escalating U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK (North Korea) and its reckless nuclear threat will be smashed by the strong will of all the united service personnel and people and cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means of the DPRK and that the merciless operation of its revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified," a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army said in a statement carried by the English language service of the state news agency KCNA. (Reuters)

Meanwhile, CNN reports that the U.S. military is sending a land-based missile defense system to Guam to defend against possible North Korean ballistic missile launches, according to a news release from the Department of Defense. The statement said the missiles, a truck-mounted launcher, and radar and target acquisition systems will be deployed in the coming weeks.

In a discussion with someone on Facebook some days ago, I actually called it Initial Gra Gra (IGG) on the part of North Korea, and I felt America was being too aggressive in their responses. With these latest events, I'm not so sure. For those who live in the US or in South East Asia, how concerned are you?
