North Korea Threatens ‘Horrible Disaster’ On US And South Korea

North Korea said Tuesday that its military has been placed on high alert, poised to launch operations following weeks of provocative rhetoric, taunting the United States.

The isolated regime of North Korea has sensed the weakness in American leadership and could possibly turn what usually would be a bluff into violent action. President Barrack Obama has not shown actual leadership with our foreign relations, he has bowed, made apologies, and offended our allies; thus this hostile rhetoric may turn into a horrible disaster.

One of North’s military spokesman warned the United States of “disastrous consequences” for moving an aircraft carrier or escorting ships into a South Korean port and stated:

In this connection, the units of all services and army corps level of the KPA received an emergency order from its supreme command to reexamine the operation plans already ratified by it and keep themselves fully ready to promptly launch operations any time. The U.S. will be wholly accountable for the unexpected horrible disaster to be met by its imperialist aggression forces’ nuclear strike means.

In March, the North declared it was no longer bound by the armistice that ended fighting in the Korean War signed with the United States and China, threatening to use nuclear weapons to attack U.S. and South Korean territories.

North Korea has had no regard for international warnings not to build long-ranged missiles or nuclear. It is suspected that the isolated regime of North Korea has enough fissile material to build up to 10 nuclear bombs, however, the majority of intelligence analysis say it has not yet conquered the technology to deploy said weapons.

Within South Korea the U.S has 28,500 troops stationed to engage in daily drills with their allies, and the aircraft carrier USS George Washington that seemed to “stir the pot” was simply completing a routine port call to visit South Korea.

The Defense Ministry of South Korea said:

On Monday the ships were taking part in a routine search and rescue exercise and any criticism by North Korea was wrong.

North Korea is considered unfit to fight any extended modern battle, yet it did not stop them from attacking the South in 2010 which killed 50 people in aggression. It seems that they do not mind taking action against those who they perceive to be weak.

While President Obama has succeeded in diverting attention away from recent blunders abroad, it would seem that those actions have caught the attention of adversarial regimes emboldened by domestic dysfunction and international amateurism.
