North Korea Openly Antagonizing White House with Nuke Threat

The tiny, despotic nation of North Korea strikes little fear into the heart of the international community, expect perhaps in the way that a loud and aggressive panhandler might frighten a fresh suburbanite.

The hermit kingdom, helmed by Kim Jong Un, has long declared any number of not-so-subtle threats against the rest of the world at large, punctuated by a bevy of missile tests – most of which end up more embarrassing than anything else.

The real concern about North Korea is the damage that the tyrannical government is doing to the innocent people of the nation, and whether or not it would ever be possible to extricate them from the antiquated and underwhelming Hell that the Kim dynasty has imprisoned them in.

This stain on the global community, as prone to failure as they are, have now decided that they’d like to threaten the United States with nuclear weapons.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned he’s ready to use his nuclear weapons in potential military conflicts with the United States and South Korea, state media said Thursday, as he unleashed fiery rhetoric against rivals he says are pushing the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.

Kim’s speech to war veterans on the 69th anniversary of the end of the 1950-53 Korean War were apparently meant to boost internal unity in the impoverished country suffering pandemic-related economic difficulties. North Korea will likely intensify its threats against the United States and South Korea as the allies prepare to expand summertime exercises the North views as an invasion rehearsal, some observers say.

There wasn’t much grey area in his statement.

“Our armed forces are completely prepared to respond to any crisis, and our country’s nuclear war deterrent is also ready to mobilize its absolute power dutifully, exactly and swiftly in accordance with its mission,” Kim said in Wednesday’s speech, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

This is a rather serious change of attitude from Kim, whose docile and largely cooperative demeanor during Donald Trump’s presidency belies a weakness in Biden that the North Korean dictator wasn’t seeing in the previous White House.
