North Korea says considering missile strike near Guam

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-40871416

North Korea says it is considering missile strikes near the US Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after President Donald Trump threatened Pyongyang with “fire and fury”.

The North’s official news agency said it was mulling a plan to fire medium-to-long-range rockets around Guam, where US strategic bombers are based.

The statement marks a sharp rise in rhetoric between the two countries.

The UN recently approved further economic sanctions against the country.

President Trump’s comments followed a media report that claimed the North had made a nuclear warhead small enough to fit inside its missiles.

The Washington Post report, which cited US intelligence officials, suggests North Korea is developing nuclear weapons capable of hitting the US at a much faster rate than expected.

The North’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said its military was “carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12”.

It said the plan would be reported to the Supreme Command after “full examination and completion” and put into practice at the order of leader Kim Jong-un, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

      “The statement of the DPRK government was read out to be followed by speeches.

      Noting that the U.S. framed up the “sanctions resolution” with dastards acting as voting machine without any principle, the speakers said this is no more than desperate efforts of those frightened at the might of the DPRK which rose to the high strategic position as a nuclear power of Juche and world-level military power.

      They said that if the U.S. persists in extreme military adventure and sanctions and pressure, obsessed by anachronistic daydream, it would suffer a shameful defeat and final doom.

      The army and people of the DPRK will counter the “sanctions” with retaliation and “confrontation” with do-or-die resistance for justice as the U.S. imperialists resort to all-round provocation in all fields of politics, economy and military affairs, they stressed.

      They vowed to mercilessly wipe out the provocateurs making desperate efforts to stifle the socialist country and thus creditably discharge their mission and duty as the KPISF, the mercilessly striking force of the Supreme Commander. -0-”

      “From long ago, the U.S. regarded invasion of Korea, gate to the Asian continent, as the important key for implementing the strategy for world domination. It artificially divided Korea, which is neither a war criminal nor the defeated in the Second World War, and unhesitatingly committed the most monstrous crimes unprecedented in history.

      The U.S., from its gangster-like nature not to allow the existence of the DPRK, has cooked up a lot of illegal anti-DPRK “sanctions resolutions” and increased them while resorting to the nuclear threats and blackmail to it.

      It is the instinct of human being to protect himself or herself from the attack of brutes and it is a righteous step to defend the safety of each nation and security of its country from the aggression of outsiders.

      The DPRK took the option of having access to the strongest nuclear force to defend its sovereignty and the right to existence of the nation from the highhanded and arbitrary practices of the U.S.

      By taking the option the DPRK declared an end to the gangster-like logic and Yankee-style way of existence that all the countries on the earth should be colonies serving the U.S. interests or fall victim to the U.S.

      Now standing before the “only superpower in the world” are the heroic people of Juche Korea, who created the legendary war victory by shattering the myth of “mightiness” of the U.S. imperialists with rifles 60 odd years ago. Today they have the most powerful strategic weapons, Juche weapons with the U.S. mainland in their striking range.

      It is a foolish calculation for the U.S. to think that its mainland would be safe across the ocean.

      The more “sanctions resolutions” aimed at depriving the DPRK of its sovereignty and rights to existence and development would only stir up the hatred of the Korean army and people toward the gangster-like U.S. and harden their will to retaliate against it thousand times.

      The way out for the DPRK is to bolster up the state nuclear force, and the DPRK will never step back even an inch from the road of justice chosen by itself, no matter what others may say. -0-“

      • korea is essentially a usa state like japan..

        • and North Kora doesnt want to become next. thats the rationale behind th nuclear tests they are launching – an autodefense against the US appetites

  7. Does anyone else remember this story after Fukishima? Funny North Korea has chosen Guam to be a target?

    Quietly, Guam is Slated to Become Massive New U.S. Military Base
    NOVEMBER 22, 2015 1:00 AM

    This U.S. territory in the Western Pacific, long a way station for passing jets and submarines, is about to become a hub for a force of 4,800 Marines who’ll be charged with readying for war and disasters in East Asia.

    The trouble is the Pentagon has not yet persuaded two nearby islands to accept a proposal that would give the Marines a space to train during their Pacific patrols. And some are suggesting, subtly, that it may be difficult to station so many military service members on Guam if they cannot train nearby.

    On one island, Tinian, a Marine plan to practice ground maneuvers is setting off fears that the sounds of mortars and rocket blasts will quash a budding Chinese-backed tourism-casino industry. The companies behind the casinos have been hinting they’d pull out if the Marine proposal becomes a reality.

    • Tinian

      The Tinian IBB Radio Station is owned by the Christian Science Monitor in Boston.

      Tinian Island was the launching point for the atomic bomb attacks against Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. One of three islands in the Northern Marianas, Tinian is less than forty square miles in size and located approximately 1,500 miles south of Tokyo. The round-trip flight from Tinian to Tokyo took B-29s an average of twelve hours. This proximity to Japan is one reason Tinian served as the headquarters of the 509th Composite Group.
      Tinian, easy to supply by sea and perfect for launching air attacks against Japan, was desired by the U.S. military because of its key strategic importance. The U.S. military referred to Tinian with the codename “Destination.”

    Tinian International Airport

    The U.S Air Force disclosed it would be plunking down an estimated $375 million to improve the Tinian International Airport by building additional facilities and infrastructure.

    The Air Force made this pronouncement during a public hearing last July 27 on its proposed Pacific Air Force Divert and Exercise Activities airport layout plan, according to Commonwealth Ports Authority Tinian board member Kimberly King-Hinds.

    here “Maybe it wasn’t tough enough. They’ve been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it’s about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries,” Trump said. “So if anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough.”

    “”Beijing is not able to persuade Washington or Pyongyang to back down at this time. It needs to make clear its stance to all sides and make them understand that when their actions jeopardize China’s interests, China will respond with a firm hand.

    China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral. If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.””
