North Korea plans to Nuke the US

Quote:
THAAD missiles
The United States is sending its new, ultra-advanced THAAD missile defence system to Guam. Here's how it works.

NORTH Korea dramatically escalated its warlike rhetoric, warning that it had authorised plans for nuclear strikes on targets in the United States.

"The moment of explosion is approaching fast," the North Korean military said, warning that war could break out "today or tomorrow".

Pyongyang's latest pronouncement came as Washington scrambled to reinforce its Pacific missile defences, preparing to send ground-based interceptors to Guam and dispatching two Aegis class destroyers to the region.

Tension was also high on the North's heavily-fortified border with South Korea, after Kim Jong-Un's isolated regime barred South Koreans from entering a Seoul-funded joint industrial park on its side of the frontier.

Just how crazy is Kim Jong-un?
THAAD missiles

In a statement published by the state KCNA news agency, the Korean People's Army general staff warned Washington that US threats would be "smashed by... cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means".

"The merciless operation of our revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified," the statement said.

Last month, North Korea threatened a "pre-emptive" nuclear strike against the United States, and last week its supreme army command ordered strategic rocket units to combat status.

But, while Pyongyang has successfully carried out test nuclear detonations, most experts think it is not yet capable of mounting a device on a ballistic missile capable of striking US bases or territory.

Mounting tension in the region could however trigger incidents on the tense and heavily-militarised border between North and South Korea.

There was no immediate American reaction to the North's latest statement, but US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel said Pyongyang represented a "real and clear danger" to the United States and to its allies South Korea and Japan.

"They have nuclear capacity now, they have missile delivery capacity now," Hagel said after a strategy speech at the National Defence University. "We take those threats seriously, we have to take those threats seriously."

"We are doing everything we can, working with the Chinese and others, to defuse that situation on the peninsula. I hope the North will ratchet its very dangerous rhetoric down," he said.

The Pentagon said it would send ground-based THAAD interceptor batteries to protect US bases on the island of Guam, complementing two Aegis anti-missile destroyers already dispatched to the region.

The THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defence) is a truck-mounted system that can pinpoint an enemy missile launch, track the projectile and launch an interceptor to bring it down.

Guam is a US island territory 3,380 kilometres southeast of North Korea in the Pacific and is home to 6,000 American military personnel, as well as bases for submarines and strategic bombers.

The new defensive measures came as Pyongyang stopped South Korean staff members from entering the Kaesong complex, a shared industrial zone funded by Seoul but 10 kilometres inside the North.

Pyongyang said the 861 South Koreans already in the zone could leave, but the move cut the last practical cooperation between the rival powers and was seen as a dramatic escalation in the crisis.

South Korea's defence ministry said it had contingency plans that included "military action" if the safety of its citizens in Kaesong was threatened.

China, the North's sole major ally, appealed for "calm" from all sides and Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said he was worried that the situation could spiral out of control.

Describing the Kaesong ban as "very regrettable", South Korea's Unification Ministry urged the North to normalise access immediately.

"Otherwise," the ministry warned, "not only will inter-Korean relations be negatively affected but North Korea will invoke greater criticism and isolation from the international community."

It said 33 South Koreans had returned from Kaesong, with hundreds staying on to keep their companies running smoothly.

Around 53,000 North Koreans work at 120 South Korean plants at the complex, which was still operating normally Wednesday.

Tensions have soared on the Korean peninsula since December, when the North test launched a long-range rocket. In February, it upped the ante once again by conducting its third nuclear test.

Washington has deployed nuclear-capable US B-52s, B-2 stealth bombers and two US destroyers to South Korean air and sea space.

This week, the North warned it would reopen its mothballed Yongbyon reactor -- its source of weapons-grade plutonium. The North shut down Yongbyon in July 2007 under a six-nation aid-for-disarmament accord.

Experts say it would take at least six months to get the reactor back up and running, after which it will be able to produce one bomb's worth of weapons-grade plutonium per year.

I don't think NK has the tech to aunch straight to the homeland, but still, things keep looking worse

It's simple: They start building a reactor after making a threat, we go bomb the **** out of them. The rest of the world probably won't give a shit, because no one likes North Korea anyway. You'd think after those stealth bombers we sent over as a warning of what would happen, they'd shut the **** up.

They've been doing this for the past week or two now, amping up all the rhetoric and talk. I think honestly they want to scare the US into firing first, and obviously anything like that would be a major catastrophe for the US as far as global diplomacy goes.

The absolute worst case scenario is if they hit Seoul. Let's face it; anything planning to hit the mainland US will more than likely be shot down; even if it did reach the mainland, it probably wouldn't get past California.

So yeah....just keep your eyes peeled with all things happening in the happy land of the Kims.

Did you know; if our countries used the same capital punishments laws that North Korea uses, next to everyone on this forum would have received public execution.

And now you know.

I saw this coming.

I find this a bit frightening because it's obviously upset the peace over nukes between US and NK, and there's a small possibility that it could upset peace between other countries in the future. Maybe I'm being too pessimistic though.
Also;
"16.42 David Cameron has given a far more definitive statement about North Korea's potential to launch a nuclear sttack on the UK than he suggested in an article for The Daily Telegraph this morning, claiming that it is a "fact" that North Korea has technology that could see a nuclear launch reach Britain.
It is not clear if the Prime Minister misspoke, or if he revealed new information based on increased intelligence of Pyongyang's nuclear capabilities."

They made a few typos.

Umm... So excuse my language here, but I don't feel this conveys the right message when censored in something like this.

**** off North Korea, you corrupt sons of bitches. Don't need my neighbors being bombed, and that's way too ****ing close for comfort as well.

Better not be true, that's all I have to say.

Edit: Site has censors now anyways. Been a long time since I've felt it necessary to swear here. Whatever, you guys know what I'm saying.
