The statement quoted the General Staff of the Korean People's Army as saying it was formally informing Washington that reckless 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.

"The US had better ponder over the prevailing grave situation.

North Korea Army: 'War Could Break Out Today'


North Korea's army says it has approval to attack the US as America moves a missile defence system to Guam.


7:32am UK, Thursday 04 April 2013


The North Korean military says it has ratified a "merciless" attack against the United States, potentially involving a "cutting-edge" nuclear strike.

"The moment of explosion is approaching fast," the army said in a statement on state news agency KCNA.

War could break out "today or tomorrow", the statement said, quoting a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army.

"The merciless operation of (our) revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified.

"The US had better ponder over the prevailing grave situation."

The North's Committee for Peaceful Reunification of Korea was later quoted by KCNA as threatening to withdraw its 53,000 workers from the joint industrial zone it shares with the South.

Pyongyang informed Seoul on Wednesday that it was stopping the daily movement of South Koreans to the Kaesong complex, the last real surviving point of contact between the two countries.

And the committee said: "If the South Korean puppets and conservative news media keep badmouthing (us), we will order all our workers to pull out from Kaesong."

North Korea's latest pronouncements came as Washington scrambled to reinforce its Pacific defences, preparing to move an advanced missile defence system to the island of Guam.

The land-based weapon, which is primed to shoot down short and medium-range missiles, will be sent to the US territory to defend its bases there.

The Pentagon has already sent bombers, stealth aircraft and ships.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency said the North had moved a mid-range Musudan missile to its east coast.

The missile is believed to have a range of 1,875 miles (3,000km) or more, which would put all of South Korea and Japan in range and possibly also the US territory of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.

North Korea is not believed to have tested these missiles, according to most independent experts.

Tensions have been soaring on the Korean peninsula since the North launched a long-range rocket in December and conducted its third nuclear test in February.

North Korea has threatened missile and nuclear strikes against the US and South Korea in response to UN sanctions and joint military drills.

US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Wednesday that North Korea's "bellicose, dangerous rhetoric" posed a "real and clear danger" to America and its allies South Korea and Japan.

"They have nuclear capacity now, they have missile delivery capacity now," he said.

"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."

The tensions surrounding Kaesong - established in 2004 and a crucial source of hard currency for North Korea - carry enormous significance.

Neither of the Koreas has allowed previous crises to significantly affect the complex, which is the only surviving example of inter-Korean cooperation and seen as a bellwether for stability on the Korean peninsula.

China, the North's sole major ally, appealed for "calm" from all sides, repeating Beijing's oft-declared position.

Many years ago a friend was reading a newspaper, there was an article about North Korea, and said "that is such a secretive place and may well cause a war" I find it very alarming also frightening.

I don't think a war will break out because North Korea know they will be obliterated.

I hope Cameron doesn't go wading into things though.

.
The problem is that they possibly don't. They have state control of the media, and probably libel lawyers helping ensure that the people are never told the truth.
Sounds sort of familiar doesn't it.
The common folk have no access to international news and are force fed whatever the little fat one tells them.
Which makes them extremely dangerous, as there is only one lunatic in charge with no one to control him.

Another triumph for US Foreign Policy.

Putative "rogue states" seldom pose a real threat unless, like snakes, they are poked.

Leave them alone and they merely go about their business (albeit maybe with a bit of sabre-rattling thrown in).

We need Trident to beat Korean nuke threat insists Cameron, opening major rift with the Liberal Democrats who back a cheaper alternative




  • Prime Minister will warn it would be 'foolish' for Britain to abandon Trident
  • He says the country faces an increased threat of nuclear attack
  • UK has four Vanguard-class submarines each armed with Trident missiles
  • Cabinet Office is conducting a review of options for replacing Trident

Japan alerted by signs of N. Korea missile launch


Kyodo
Posted at 04/04/2013 5:43 PM | Updated as of 04/04/2013 5:43 PM



TOKYO - The Japanese government said Thursday it is taking every possible measure to collect information and collaborate with other countries amid signs that North Korea is preparing to launch a missile.

"We understand every development (in North Korea) by collaborating with the United States and South Korea," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters, as Pyongyang has reportedly moved what appears to be a mid-range missile to its east coast facing Japan. "It is extremely regrettable they repeat provocative acts."

The top government spokesman said Tokyo is braced for the "worst-case scenario," he said, adding China and Russia can play "significant roles" in defusing tensions surrounding North Korea, which announced this week it will restart a nuclear reactor that can produce weapons-grade material in defiance of international resolutions.

Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera separately said his ministry is closely communicating with the United States concerning the U.S. Defense Department's plan to deploy a land-based missile defense system to Guam in coming weeks to counter the threat of North Korean ballistic missiles.

"We will prepare to respond without any mistake" to a possible missile launch, Onodera said.

Chief of Joint Staff Gen. Shigeru Iwasaki told reporters that Onodera had instructed him to redouble efforts by the Self-Defense Forces to monitor the situation in the North by enhancing surveillance and stepping up the exchange of information with the United States.

North Korea has become increasingly belligerent, threatening to launch nuclear and missile strikes against South Korea and the United States, which it accuses of preparing to wage war by conducting joint military drills.

The isolated country has also barred South Korean workers from entering a jointly run factory park just over the heavily armed border in the North.
