north korea threatens us

North Korea continued to make ominous threats toward the United States Thursday when the state news agency issued a statement saying, “Now is the time to annihilate the U.S. imperialist aggressors.”

The statement was issued in response to a U.S.-drafted resolution passed by the United Nations Security Council imposing new sanctions on the hermit nation.

In a statement released by news agency KCNA, a spokesman for the regime said: ‘The army and people of the DPRK are unanimously demanding that the Yankees, chief culprit in cooking up the “sanctions resolution”, be beaten to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog.

‘There’s limit to patience. Now is the time to annihilate the U.S. imperialist aggressors. Let’s reduce the U.S. mainland into ashes and darkness.

‘Let’s vent our spite with mobilization of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now. These are voices of the Korean army and people.

In the statement, North Korea also threatened to sink Japan “into the sea”:

‘The behaviors of Japs, sworn enemy of the Korean nation, are enraging us. The wicked Japs should not be pardoned…

‘A telling blow should be dealt to them who have not yet come to senses after the launch of our ICBM over the Japanese archipelago.

‘The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us.’

The missile which North Korea fired over Japan, the Hwasong-14, is capable of ranging most of the U.S. mainland. The regime claims that the nuclear warhead it tested on September 3 is small enough to fit on top of the missile, but there are doubts as to whether the technology is capable of bringing it back to earth intact.

Additionally, satellite imagery from Johns Hopkins University shows that the country is moving mobile missile launchers and preparing fixed sites for launch.

The United Nations was correct to impose new sanctions on North Korea. However, this is a very delicate situation – and it’s difficult to tell how seriously we need to take the regime’s threats.
