North Korea is threatening to blow up America because, well, not sure exactly – but they are threatening. And they mean it. Which doesn’t mean they can do it, but I’m pretty sure they believe it anyhow. by Rodney Lee Conover – click to Friend Him
To their credit, if there were ever a President of the United States who would bow, shake in his boots and bow down to a bozo like Kim Jong Un – the one in the Oval Office currently would be the right guy to threaten. Still, I don’t think a country that can barely keep their lights on could blow us up.
Dear Leader was outraged by the film showing the assassination of himself and also claims to have “clear evidence the U.S. government engineered the project as a ‘propaganda’ attack against North Korea.”
And when they say “clear evidence” you can bet they mean, “a good inkling.”
Honestly, we should package up a bunch of VHS collections of old “M*A*S*H” episodes and drop-ship them over Pyoungyang so they can see actual comedy – not the crap studios such as SONY puts out.
Wayne Rogers and Alan Alda couldn’t be further apart politically in their personal lives – but I bet they agree on this one: Kim Jong Un is a little fat-ass who couldn’t put fear in anything more than a jelly doughnut.
But I digress.. Here’s the skinny – from THE DAILY MAIL:
In a ranting post published by the state news agency KCNA, Korean authorities hit back in an escalating war of words in which they say they will ‘blow up’ the White House – while bizarrely continuing to deny they have anything to do with the cyber attacks on Sony. North Korea was incensed by the planned film, in which dictator Kim Jong Un is blown up.
Referring to the United States as a ‘cesspool of terrorism’, the communist dictatorship said that it has already lashed out at the ‘citadels of the U.S. imperialists’, naming the White House and Pentagon in particular. A release, translated from Korean, said: ‘The DPRK [North Korea] has already launched the toughest counteraction.
‘Nothing is a more serious miscalculation than guessing that just a single movie production company is the target of this counteraction.’
‘Our target is all the citadels of the U.S. imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Koreans.
‘The army and people of the DPRK are fully ready to stand in confrontation with the U.S. in all war spaces including cyber warfare space to blow up those citadels.’
But despite its bellicose language, the state continued to deny it had anything to do with the original hack, for which a group calling themselves the Guardians of Peace has claimed credit.
North Korea called the hack a ‘righteous deed’ – and reiterated that it ‘highly esteems’ the attack – but said it had no idea where it came from.
FBI officials have explicitly linked the attack to the Korean regime, saying that technical details from the hack have Korean hallmarks.
But Kim Jong Un’s officials responded by calling FBI claims a ‘fabrication’, and describing U.S. actions as ‘gangster-like’.
Dear Kim Jong-Un. Shut up.
