Yes once again the dictator that everyone loves to hate has threatened the entire world.
According to the official Korean Central News Agency,
"Our nuclear deterrent will be a strong defensive means...as well as a merciless offensive means to deal a just retaliatory strike to those who touch the country's dignity and sovereignty even a bit,".
This is quite a bold ,as well as, provocative statement. In the past the North Koreans have insisted that any nuclear weapons they might possess are for strictly defensive purposes. Now however they are also bragging that they will be used as offensive weapons ,if any nation, dare "Touch" their dignity as a nation."
What does that mean? If anyone dare criticize Korea, or it's hopelessly insane leader, Kim Ill Jung, are they going to be subject to Nuclear attack?
What is the purpose of the recent bellicosity of North Korea? Do they want a war with the United States, Japan, South Korea, as well as any other country that would see fit to join us?
At first I thought, maybe, they do. But I believe their may be more to it. I'm not discounting ,that for some reason, they might want to fight us, but there may well be other factors that motivate them.
One such factor may be that they are actually advertising the fact that they now have some form of nuclear weapon and the means to deliver it over a distance desirable to groups such as Al-Kaeda or whatever, Hamas, or any other lunatic group that wishes the rest of the world harm. This writer suspects this may be a very important objective of their current campaign of idiocy.
There is however another possibility. It may just be that they have serious, and I mean serious, designs on South Korea. Consider this quote from The Korean Central News Agency.
Dateline June 8 2009 : "Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) -- The elimination of anti-reunification traitors is an urgent task before the Korean nation desirous of its reunification, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article."
And what or whom are these so called anti- reunification traitors? No less a light than the President of South Korea, as well as , his entire administration. Why does this writer think this to be the Case? I'll let the North Korean lunatics speak for themselves.
"It is the Lee "government" veiled with the signboard of "pragmatism" that brought to naught overnight the successes made in the development of the inter-Korean relations which the Korean nation has achieved through concerted efforts in the June 15 era of reunification and revived the past fascist dictatorial policy in the south Korean political circle. It is due to the Lee regime that the confrontation between the north and the south has reached such an extreme phase that a war may break out any moment in Korea."
North Korea is in dire straits. Our country may be bankrupt, but his country really takes the cake. They have people flooding across the border with China the way we have people coming over from Mexico. The people aren't just poor, they're starving, freezing, and God knows what else. Meanwhile these nuts in Pyong Yang live like gods. Any way I digress.
North Korea has in essence, as well as in fact, made a death threat against the entire government of South Korea.
Bottom line. They want to make an incursion into South Korea, seize as much South Korean wealth and land as possible. They have looked at our current President, and judged him, to be weak. They have looked at our majority party and figure they will have no gut for war, and have come to the conclusion that, if they provoke a war with us,and South Korea,that they can quickly make significant inroads into the South, then , at the right moment, or perhaps when we are about to turn them back, make an appeal for negotiations, and bank on the fact, that no matter how outrageous their actions, we would stop operation, enter into negotiations, and quite likely allow this bunch of mutts to keep what they gained i.e. Israel and the Arab states during the Six day war.
Well I've gone a little long, but there is no doubt about it, Kim Ill and his band of sickos aren't going away, unless the world gets some guts and take this bunch of clowns down.
