North Korea warning: ‘Merciless strike’ ahead of U.S.-South Korea war games

Strategically, it wouldn’t make the most sense for Pyongyang’s military to attempt to strike massing U.S. and South Korean forces

(National SentinelWar: The North Korean government turned bellicose again on Saturday, warning of a “merciless” strike ahead of scheduled U.S.-South Korean war games.

As reported by CNN, the Stalinist state also warned that the exercises amounted to “reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war.”

CNN reported further:

Pyongyang also declared that its army can target the United States anytime, and neither Guam, Hawaii nor the US mainland can “dodge the merciless strike.”

The messages in Rodong Sinmun, the official government newspaper, come a day before the US starts the Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises with South Korea.

Tensions between the US and North Korea have grown in recent weeks.

Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the US territory of Guam. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un would assess the US’ next move before giving launch orders.

Kim would “watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees,” a North Korean statement said last week.

U.S. defense experts say the rhetoric is nothing new from Pyongyang, and the Trump administration said that the exercises, which are scheduled to begin Monday, would continue as planned.

Strategically, it wouldn’t make the most sense for Pyongyang’s military to attempt to strike massing U.S. and South Korean forces, which are no doubt going to be on their highest alert and expecting a potential strike.

But it’s North Korea, so it’s hard to say what’s on leader Kim Jong-un’s mind, especially after he backed down from threats to strike Guam a week ago in the face of a stern promise of “fire and fury” from President Donald J. Trump.

It’s a game of brinksmanship again on the Korean peninsula, obviously, and the North Koreans are playing their part.

  2. Why waste time, money, and effort? Why fly nukes to US and Guam? South Korea is so close. Is it a hair cut issue for the slant eyed mongrel, or is it the small penis thing this time? Flat Top…..do what you have to do. There are many more countries that want a piece of you! If they ban together , what then for NK? You know we know of your “fake cities”. Your low population says it all. Do you really want to go this far? Evacuating SK is no issue for NATO. Then who would then be in the way? Just a terrorist and a paultry country of nothings. Korea is no Germany. It’s position is not mandatory on the globe. So what is Korea to US???

    War is hell, Peacock! There will be casualties. Release the Kracken!!!!!…..
