North Korea is dismissing the possibility of renewing talks with the United States, which it said is trying to overthrow the communist government in Pyongyang.
In a statement Wednesday, the National Defense Commission, North Korea’s top military body, also threatened retaliatory nuclear and cyberattacks on the U.S.
“Now that the gangster-like U.S. imperialists’ military strategy towards the DPRK is inching close to the stage of igniting a war of aggression, the just counteraction of the army and people of the DPRK will be focused on inflicting the bitterest disasters upon the United States of America,” the statement read.
Such inflammatory comments are common in the lead-up to Washington’s annual joint military drills with South Korea, which are set to begin in March. Pyongyang says it views the drills as preparation to invade.
The world is just a super fun place now that the craziest non-Castro dictator has nukes, isn’t it? Imagine how it will be after the ayatollahs get them too.
Seriously though, with the American fighting forces being reduced and slightly recommitted to fighting the terrorists we left alone just long enough to get stronger in the Middle East, what would happen if the Pyongyang Pudgy wanted to start acting up?
Each passing day makes me wish Newt could have gotten his Moon bases built.
