More saber-rattling from North Korea. It’s hard to know when to take them seriously.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Thursday vowed to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States, amplifying its threatening rhetoric hours ahead of a vote by U.N. diplomats on whether to level new sanctions against Pyongyang for its recent nuclear test.
An unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North.
Although North Korea boasts of nuclear bombs and pre-emptive strikes, it is not thought to have mastered the ability to produce a warhead small enough to put on a missile capable of reaching the U.S. It is believed to have enough nuclear fuel, however, for several crude nuclear devices.
It’s not the nuke in a missle that worries me as much as the one in a shipping container in Baltimore’s harbor.
Boy, and after Dennis Rodman said KJU was a “great guy” and everything ... bummer.
My thoughts exactly…Dennis Rodman should apologize to all of us for being a mouthpiece for evil.
Agreed. I’m not afraid of someone who wants 100 nuclear weapons. I’m afraid of someone who only wants one.
For some sobering reading, do a Google search for “What a Single Nuclear Warhead Could Do” wsj. It’s an article in the Wall Street Journal by Brian Kennedy, writ in late 2008. Two nightmare scenarios are given - one horrific, and one positively cataclysmic - and both all too possible.
I’d post the link, but B&S doesn’t seem to like when I post links ...
