As the U.N. Security Council prepares to vote on harsh new sanctions against North Korea, that nation's military has found a way to take its fighting words to yet another hyperbolic level. In a press statement complaining about both the sanctions and ongoing military exercises by the U.S. and South Korea, the DPRK says "it will fully display the might of Songun it built up decades after decades and put an end to the evil cycle of tension." The statement also breaks out—literally—the North's biggest gun in the threat of "a preemptive nuclear attack." 

(Update: The Security Council passed the resolution this morning by unanimous vote. See more at the bottom of this post.)

First, now that the U.S. is set to light a fuse for a nuclear war, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will exercise the right to a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors and to defend the supreme interests of the country.

Before you climb into your bomb shelter its important to note that the North has shown no ability to launch a missile that can either carry a nuclear warhead or reach the United States. It also seems unlikely that they would annihilate Seoul, despite numerous threats to do so in the past. However, the talk of nullifying the 60-year-old cease fire agreement and jumping in a second Korean War is worrying, particularly with American, North, and South Korean soliders and sailors conducting their drills in such close proximity. The North began its own military exercises this week, in response to the annual joint war games that the South is holding with the U.S. over the next two months. (Earlier this week, the same DPRK leaders threatened to tear up the first Korean War's armistice agreement if the operations didn't stop.) If any of those ships happen to wander to close to each other or someone shoots the wrong way, there very well could be a bad incident that might lead to an escalation.

Even with the harsh words, the U.N. is going ahead with a new punitive resolution that even has the backing of the Chinese. Beijing and Washington worked out the agreement over several weeks, following the most recent nuclear test in North Korea and it will be presented for a Security Council on Thursday. Reports say that it would be the harshest measure taken against North Korea to date, and is designed to monitor and stop any shipments into or out of the DPRK that might be related to their nuclear program.

Once the resolution is passed, there will likely be another strong condemnation and more threats from the North, but hopefully they will stay careful enough to not actually take the first shot that starts the New Korean War. The Kim dynasty has a long and glorious history of making colorful threats they don't really want to back up, but no one knows what it might take to push the newest, youngest member of the family over the edge. (Just to up the ridiculousness a little more, Kim Jong-un also sent a letter to Bashar al-Assad today, to congratulate him on making Syria so awesome.) Let's hope cooler heads prevail, because we really don't want to see the DMZ burning in the "flames of justice."

Should the U.S. ignite a war in the end, it will cause flames of justice to flare up like an erupting volcano in which the aggressors will perish and the cursed Military Demarcation Line disappear for good.

The entire statement, via BNO News, is below:

The U.S. is now working hard to ignite a nuclear war to stifle the DPRK.

Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises kicked off by the U.S., putting the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war, are maneuvers for a nuclear war aimed to mount a preemptive strike on the DPRK from A to Z.

The U.S. is massively deploying armed forces for aggression, including nuclear carrier task force and strategic bombers, enough to fight a nuclear war under the smokescreen of "annual drills."

What should not be overlooked is that the war maneuvers are timed to coincide with the moves to fabricate a new "resolution" of the UN Security Council against the DPRK, pursuant to a war scenario of the U.S. to ignite a nuclear war under the pretext of "nuclear nonproliferation".

It is a trite war method of the U.S. to cook up "a resolution" at the UNSC to justify its war of aggression and then unleash it under the berets of "UN forces."

That is why the U.S. is hurling into the war maneuvers even armed forces of its satellite countries which participated in the past Korean War as "UN forces".

After directing the strategic pivot for world hegemony to the Asia-Pacific region, the U.S. regards it as its primary goal to put the whole of the Korean Peninsula under its control in a bid to secure a bridgehead for landing in the Eurasian continent. It also seeks a way out of a serious economic crisis at home in unleashing the second Korean war.

The U.S. is, indeed, the very criminal threatening global peace and security as it is staging dangerous war drills in this region, the biggest hotspot in the world and a nuclear arsenal where nuclear weapons and facilities are densely deployed.

The DPRK has so far made every possible effort while exercising maximum self-restraint in order to defend the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the region.

The U.S. is, however, responding to the DPRK's good will and self-restraint with large-scale nuclear war maneuvers and the "annual" war drills are developing into a real war. Under this situation the opportunity of diplomatic solution has disappeared and there remains only military counteraction.

The spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry states as follows upon authorization as regards the grim situation that was created on the Korean Peninsula seriously threatening the sovereignty of the country and its right to existence:

First, now that the U.S. is set to light a fuse for a nuclear war, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will exercise the right to a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors and to defend the supreme interests of the country.

The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army declared that it would totally nullify the Korean Armistice Agreement (AA) from March 11 when the U.S. nuclear war rehearsal gets into full swing. This meant that from that moment the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will take military actions for self-defence against any target any moment, not restrained by AA.

Second, the farce for the adoption of "resolution on sanctions" against the DPRK being backed by the U.S. at the UN Security Council will compel the DPRK to take at an earlier date more powerful second and third countermeasures as it had declared.

If the UN Security Council gives the green light to the U.S. in its moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK by adopting a new "resolution on sanctions", it will fully display the might of Songun it built up decades after decades and put an end to the evil cycle of tension.

Third, given that it has become difficult to avert the second Korean war, the DPRK strongly warns the UN Security Council not to make another big blunder like the one in the past when it earned inveterate grudge of the Korean nation by acting as a war servant for the U.S. in 1950.

The UNSC should immediately call into question the U.S. DPRK-targeted nuclear war rehearsals that pose a serious threat to the global peace and security, immediately disband the "UN Command" which is a tool for executing the U.S. war of aggression and take measures for ending the state of technical war.

Justice can be defended only when strength is reacted with strength and nuke with nuke.

Should the U.S. ignite a war in the end, it will cause flames of justice to flare up like an erupting volcano in which the aggressors will perish and the cursed Military Demarcation Line disappear for good.

UPDATE (10:40 A.M.): The U.N. Security council passed a new resolution today condemning North Korea's latest nuclear test "in the strongest possible terms" and bans all further missile and nuclear tests. It also demands that North Korea re-join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, resume negotiations with other nuclear powers, and places new financial and shipping restrictions on the nation. The vote was 15-0.
