Lil’ Kim Jung Un Threatens United States with Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike – U.S. Military Yawns and Takes Nap

KimIts Monday, and that means back to work for Kim Jung Un and his megalomaniac regime.  Lil’ Kim started his week with a stern warning aimed at the United States and it’s close ally, South Korea.  “From this moment, the first-strike combined units of the Korean People’s Army keep themselves fully ready to mount a preemptive retaliatory strike at all enemy attack groups involved in Ulji Freedom Guardian,” a KPA spokesman said in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency.

“The nuclear warmongers should bear in mind that if they show the slightest sign of aggression, it would turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through a Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike.”

About 25,000 U.S. troops are joining in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise, which runs until Sept 2. The U.S.-led U.N. Command Military Armistice Commission said it notified the North Korean army the exercises were “non-provocative” in nature.

North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty.

Threats from North Korea like these are fairly regular.  Although the United States Military knows that Kim would never be so foolish as to directly provoke a war; they are reassuring the public that they are taking the threats seriously.
