North Korea Threatens to Wipe United States Off the Map

Posted 32 minutes ago, 0 replies

Washington and its allies are bracing themselves for signs of a missile attack from North Korea has promised. The often unpredictable regime plans to launch a series of missiles in the upcoming days.

A U.S. destroyer was trailing a North Korean ship off the coast of China that was allegedly transporting illicit weapons, which could potentially lead to the first test of U.N. approval to go after the nation for an underground nuclear test they conducted last month.

The new U.N. Security Council resolution requires member states to seek permission to inspect suspicious cargo, reports the Associated Press. North Korea has said it would consider interception a declaration of war and on Wednesday accused the U.S. of provoking another Korean War.

"If the U.S. imperialists start another war, the army and people of Korea will ... wipe out the aggressors on the globe once and for all," the government operated Korean Central News Agency said.

In response to U.N disapproval of that test, North Korea abandoned nuclear disarmament talks and warned it would fire a long-range missile.

North Korea also created an agenda to prohibit ships from the waters off its east coast starting Thursday through July 10 for military exercises, Japan's Coast Guard said.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday that the North may fire a Scud missile with a range of up to 310 miles (500 kilometers) or a short-range ground-to-ship missile with a range of 100 miles (160 kilometers) during the no-sail period.

A senior South Korean government official said the no-sail ban is likely connected to North Korean's agenda to fire short- or mid-range missiles.

U.S. defense and counterproliferation officials in Washington said they also expected the North to launch short- to medium-range missiles. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.

South Korea has suggested high-level " consultations to negotiate North Korea with the U.S. China and Japan.


"This administration -- and our military is fully prepared for any contingencies," Obama said during an interview with CBS News Monday morning.

"I don't want to speculate on hypotheticals," Obama said. "But I want ... to give assurances to the American people that the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted in terms of what might happen."

"What we're not going to do is to reward belligerence and provocation in the way that's been done in the past," he said.

this is one war the US will not win.
North Korea will do exactly that, nuke the living shit out of the states... and of course, the states will nuke them right back.
this is one war that would end in about 10 minutes and would destroy the rest of the world in the process.

North Korea is nuking nobody.....certainly not the US mainland....not even close. They could nuke South Korea....but the do not have the capacity for long range missle strikes. Even if they did, the momment the silo's opened, the US would wipe em out.

That said the real scare here is if China decided to get envovled.

North Korea is a country in desperate times, dude. They need food, oil, and pretty much everything in between. I don't even think you could find the word "diplomacy" in North Korea's dictionaries, I guess they just feel that threatening to bomb the shit out of everything is the best way to get things when they need them.

But even North Korea isn't stupid enough to bomb the U.S. Kim Jong-Il could say goodbye to his country in a matter of minutes if that were the case.

I admire comrade Kim for his work, he's doing all he can to get more bargaining chips on the table...heard there's gonna be a missile test soon. There's simply too much politics involved for any conflict to start and he knows it.

Kim Jong-Il's slaves can't throw nukes that far anyway, so no biggie.

They're obviously bluffing because everyone knows that you'll need a shitload of bombs to blow up the entire US.

+ the fact that they have to evade NORAD countermeasures make this sound even dumber

After reading the whole thing, the title is misleading. They're saying if the U.S. makes acts of war again them, they will wipe the U.S. from the face of the Earth. That's like me saying if you spit in my face I'll knock you the hell out. All these goings on sound like two thugs flexing before the fight.

And how many times has NORAD been put to the test? Anti-ballistics technology is not impenetrable and an attack by a nation on U.S. soil has never happened in the modern era.

The whole thing is troubling... Being right next to the shit storm. The U.S.'s forces are spread thin and yet they continue to try to impose their will and pick fights.

^ good post

for north korea, ultimately the point of having nukes is ensuring homeland safety. but things could change with the death of jung-il.
in the coming months, not much will change since china is pretty much showing a "business as usual" attitude. and the rest of the region are just beefing up the military and whining at UN meetings.
