Seoul - North Korea on Saturday warned it was prepared to use nuclear weapons if it was invaded by the US and South Korea.
The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) carried the remarks by the North's Joint Chief, General Ri Yong-Ho, during a national meeting on the eve of the birthday of the communist country's armed forces.
"The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK (North Korea) are fully ready to frustrate any provocation of the aggressors at a single blow," Ri said.
"They will mobilise all means including the nuclear deterrent... should the US imperialists and the South Korean puppet warmongers dare intrude into the inviolable sky, land and seas of the DPRK even 0.001mm," he said.
He added that "a grave situation is now prevailing on the Korean Peninsula" because of the neighbouring South and its ally the US, who he said wanted to start a war.
The harsh rhetoric comes as tensions between the two Koreas are high over the sinking of a South Korean warship in March near the disputed sea border in the Yellow Sea with a loss of 46 lives.

Pffft.... what a sorry excuse we have for a president.
Could NK be any more ridiculous?
Yawn. National Security is soooooo 2000’s. I long for the days when I worried about stuff like this...
The US and SK already said no reprisals for the sinking of a warship and murder of 46 sailors.
What more do they want?
lol...invaded? Don't worry, Kim. Hussein is more likely to attack Israel or the U.K. than you commie schmucks.
This could be a sign of its collapse?
If one might suspect that the torpedo attack on the S Korean naval vessel was a TEST of a torpedo weapons system, who and what is the next test target?
I think the point is he is trying to provoke ROK or the US to do something. If that does not work, he may be crazy enough to say they did and I am now going to blow them off face of earth.
Someone needs to get into this other asshat’s head and tell him if he does and one US soldier is killed, his entire pile of crap will be reduced to a cinder. Unfortunately, with Obozo in charge, he would agree with the pipsqueak and say maybe we did invade.
No, the rhetoric long with the actions of the NoKos are getting increasingly aggressive and irresponsible, and as their economy slides even further into ruin (hard to believe that’s even possible, but it is...) they may well get even more aggressive to divert attention from what is really going on inside the country. There is no telling what they plan next. The problem with their methods of getting attention is that they feel compelled to up the ante every time their economy heads South again.
We think things are bad here?? The Greeks think they are being put upon?? Think things are bad in Haiti, Chile or in any of the other major disaster zones so far this year??
Imagine what the global recession has done to the people in North Korea. I think the Regime over there is holding on by their fingernails, and when they finally do go down in flames, I fear it will be literally “in flames”, and we will have the biggest humanitarian disaster on our hands in Asia since the last World War. We have little idea what the civilian casualty rate has been over the last fifty years, and whatever finally brings Kim down will no doubt have cost untold numbers of North Korean lives.
Kim will not go politely.
Remember the Pueblo!!!
Re: Pffft.... what a sorry excuse we have for a president.
president, what president???
A war with the Norkos would cripple the South's manufacturing and exports giving an additional advantage to China just when China is starting to become less attractive as a place to build and run factories.
that image looks photoshopped
Why do we still feed these people?
Someone needs to go in and rescue their women.
lol — exactly.
LOL looks like they might tear something.
Under Reagan, just threatening to use nukes against us or our allies would have been sufficient cause for glassing the place. Everyone knew it, so noone did it.
Obama will just try more appeasement.
Shows how far the US has fallen...
” “They will mobilise all means including the nuclear deterrent... should the US imperialists and the South Korean puppet warmongers dare intrude into the inviolable sky, land and seas of the DPRK even 0.001mm,” he said. “
Uummmmm, yeah. That’s 395 / 1,000,000ths of an inch. We prolly won’t need to do that, at least I don’t think so.
Kim will not go politely.
He will either initiate a war knowing it will destroy North Korea (with the sick reasoning of rather see the country destroyed than lose power), or he will be taken out by his own army (think Ceausescu). The latter, though still messy, is preferable.
One Peacekeeper missile should do the job.
Looks like the top lefty himself in the top left.
The norks are the pitbull on the leash and the chicoms are the commie thug gangbangers holding the other end.
It's their way of gaining "implausible deniability" regarding their nuke and missile proliferation to our enemies.
What country would want to invade a country where the population is starving? Why would we want to feed them when there are others who are also in need of food.!?
I dunno Fred, there are probably people running his military that are every bit as bad as Kim, if not worse...
Peacekeepers carry MIRVs. One would be overkill.
I’d be good with it...
