North Korea: Sanctions a declaration of war

-- North Korea said Saturday any sanctions or pressure applied against it following its rocket launch earlier this month will be considered a "declaration of war."

In an announcement on state-run television, the country said it was ready to step up efforts to develop nuclear weapons and poised for a military response to any moves against it.

"The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK are always keeping themselves fully ready to go into action any moment to mercilessly punish anyone who encroaches upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK even a bit," it said.

On Monday the United Nations condemned North Korea -- which refers to itself as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK -- for launching a rocket.

The United States called the launch a "provocative act" that violated a 2006 Security Council resolution prohibiting Pyongyang from conducting ballistic missile launches.

Pyongyang insists the April 5 launch was a successful mission to place a communications satellite into orbit. The United States says the rocket's payload did not reach orbit.

The U.N. statement says the rocket launch was "in contravention" to a 2006 Security Council resolution that demanded that North Korea not launch any ballistic missiles.

The 15-member council also voted unanimously for a statement by the council's president demanding the country make no more launches.

"The Korean People's Army will consider sanctions to be applied against the DPRK under various names over its satellite launch or any pressure to be put upon it through 'total participation' in the PSI (Proliferation Security Initiative) as a declaration of undisguised confrontation and a declaration of a war against the DPRK," the announcement on state TV said.

"Now that the group officially declared confrontation and war against the DPRK, its revolutionary armed forces will opt for increasing the nation's defense capability including nuclear deterrent in every way, without being bound to the agreement adopted at the six-party talks," it continued, apparently referring to the Security Council.

 

Referring to South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, the statement added, "The Lee group of traitors should never forget that Seoul is just 50 kilometers (31 miles) away from the Military Demarcation Line."

That line was established by the 1953 Armistice Agreement between the two Koreas -- which are still technically at war.

A Friday report North Korea's official KCNA news agency, seemed to blame the "war hysteria" on the United States and South Korea after the two countries carried out a combined air force operation in South Korea.

The "'South Korea-U.S. military alliance' oft-repeated by them is, in essence, nothing but a 'war alliance' and 'alliance for aggression' aimed at invading the DPRK," the report said.

"When a nuclear war will break out due to the war chariot of the 'South Korea-U.S. military alliance' is a matter of time," it said. "The U.S. and South Korean warmongers would be well advised to stop acting rashly, properly understanding who their rival is."

Look on the bright side. This time it won't last very long. During the first Korean War, China was a Stalinist theatre of the absurd about to go through the worst period of its history. They poured over a million troops across the border to halt and turn MacArthur's advancement. This time around China has moved forward with the rest of the world while North Korea remains in some sort of bizarre time warp where they're in the 1950s. Just looking at the comments from North Korea's state media, it is clear to any sane individual that the senior leadership of North Korea is completely fucked in the head. There will be no way the Chinese will come to North Korea's aid. The time when people waved around little red books and shouted themselves hoarse, in obsessive devotion to Mao and the glorious revolution is as dead as North Korea's economy. As a consequence, any military engagement will last days if not hours. Nonetheless, the comments given above by North Korea's state agency chill my blood. These people (when I say "these people" I don't mean the North Korean people, who have endured suffering beyond all measure, but rather their government) are frothing-at-the-mouth lunatics who just want to see the world burn.

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

Hello, raise hands for

Hello, raise hands for anyone who does not think that we have at a minimum two Ohio class submarines ready to drop several hundred nukes on the PRNK on a word. It would take only a few minutes of actual fight time to put a nuke where we wanted it to go.

 

We also have predator drones and other UAVs watching what is going on.

 

BTW: While we did dismantle our neutron bombs in the 70's, it really is trivial to put them back together again. We also have nuclear capable artillery ready to go.

 

I am not worried about the”great leader”.

...In fairness, form the looks of things, you'd likely be striking them from the air via one of the airbases you have in South Korea.

 

 

I remain rather tense. Our good mentally retarded dictator knows his time is coming to a close, and no doubt he's looking for a legacy of some sort...

Oh, and who the fuck is selling those crazy motherfuckers the fissionable material for making warheads? I would like them to explain themselves.

No! Nukes bad. It's sad enough that depleted uranium is used in the now-ubiquitous 20mm rounds. What would using nukes prove? That the western world is the biggest bunch of pricks ever in the history of humans? The civilian death toll would be stupid. Let's not do that again.
