"We are not disguising the fact that the various satellites and long-range rockets that we will fire and the high-level nuclear test we will carry out are targeted at the United States," the country's top military body said.

Via Yonhap:

(Note: statement likely made before latest threat from North Korea)

A U.S. special envoy warned North Korea Thursday against conducting a possible nuclear test, a day after Pyongyang hinted that it might push ahead with a nuclear test to retaliate against the U.N. Security Council resolution.

"Whether North Korea tests or not, it's up to North Korea. We hope they don't do it, we call on them not to do it. It will be a mistake and a missed opportunity if they were to do it," said Glyn Davies, the U.S. special envoy on North Korea policy, when asked about the possibility of a nuclear test by North Korea.

"This is not a moment to increase tensions on the Korean Peninsula. This is the opportunity (for North Korea) to seize the moment" to engage with the outside world, Davies said.

The Norks really need to stop mouthing off. We have enough commies to deal with here. Go fire your rocket at Pakistan or some other two-bit nation.

Fuller version of statement via NPR:

SNIP

"In the new phase of our century-long struggle against the United States, we do not hide the fact that various satellites, long-range missiles that we will continue to launch and high-level nuclear test we will conduct will target our sworn enemy, the United States," said a statement from the North's National Defense Commission.

It’s time to renegotiate the cold war relic of a treaty that keeps our troops in harms way on the Korean peninsula.

South Korea has double the population and 50 times the economy of the North.

We don’t have any spare money or spare blood to give the Koreans.

You make a valid point, however remember that behind Pyonyang is Beijing, and we all know what their designs are, and what the endgame is for their saber-rattling.
We’ve got troops is far less necessary places than Korea. Germany for example. What a waste of money.
Upon second thought though, if women are now going to be dying on our front line, I don’t want our military anywhere!

After the hearings today, I hope they have good intel on this EMP threat from North Korea. We're talking about the grid here. . "What difference does it make" is not going to cut it. .

We should have several missiles aimed at their launch pad to take it out before it gets lift off. They have given suitable provocation to do so. No more mister nice guy!

The biggest problem here is the well-known fact North Korea and Iran have been cooperating on nuclear research. A successful large yield test has ramifications reaching far beyond that Asian peninsula.

When one recognizes ICBMs are on the way, IF Americans were told, one would have 25 to 35 minutes or less depending on location of launch. oops ... due to the length of this post ... less time. Just kidding ... know of none on the way yet.

Why is that, go ahead and put them at the front. They’ve been in other places for many decades, since the 60’s. Where do you think we our nanny govt originates? There’s no bigger beneficiary of EEO.

Mean while, in Sodom on the Potomac, Ayatollah Obama announced that the US military were preparing bottle rockets from the local Wild Bill’s Fireworks Shop for use in shooting down these missiles. The Ayatollah further announced cuts in the US defense budget, cutting troops, planes, ships, and weapons. Obama says that he is determined to completely do away with the US military by 2014 if not sooner. We simply don’t need a military anymore the Ayatollah stated. A total waste of money. We have more need for social payments than a defense budget.

Sorta off topic but I tuned into a far left PBS style channel and got a load of Oliver Stone talking smack about this country and bemoaning that Henry “Kneel before Zod” Wallace (FDR VP replaced in 44) was never President. He all but admitted that he was a communist and in gay love with Joe Stalin.

Basically he was saying we were bad guys in WW2 and the Soviets were the good guys. Piece of CRAP. It had grown up in a country “liberated” by the Soviets he might feel different, if would have even lived.

“It had grown up in a country “liberated” by the Soviets he might feel different, if would have even lived.”

When I look at Oliver Stone, I see a younger version of George Soros - a soul-less cretin.

RE: WW2. I’ve pretty much come around to the belief that the free world should have let the Nazis and the Reds kill each other off, then move in and take over. They were both sides of the same coin. Would have been a much better world - most if not all of the trash would have been dead. No Korea or Vietnam or Cold War.

Speaking of the Cold War, the new FX series, “The Americans” starring my fav, Keri Russell, starts this Thursday @ 10 pm, Eastern.

My old man said as much. He was WWII Airborne, he fought the one group of bastards and met up with the other group of bastards at the Elbe.

I disagree, however...the National Socialists were ENTIRELY different from the International Socialists...

...the National Socialists had shinier jackboots... yeah, that’s it...
