North Korea Vows Nuclear Test 'Aimed' at US

by Steve Herman

North Korea is amplifying its rhetoric about carrying out more rocket launches and a third nuclear test.

North Korea's National Defense Commission says the reclusive state will conduct an “all-out confrontation battle” that will include further satellite and long-range launches, as well as what it calls a nuclear test of a “higher level.” It says these actions will be aimed at its sworn enemy, the United States.

It’s not just Washington, though; there was a harsh message in the NDC comments for China, too. North Korea is clearly feeling unhappy at Beijing’s conduct, especially since the new leadership of Xi Jinping acquiesced to the latest UN resolution and then expressed its clear opposition to North Korean nuclear and missile developments in a meeting with a South Korean delegation.

Well, you have "Be thankful for twigs and bugs" day, which is the day they celebrate those filling additions to the NK diet.

Then there's "Be sure to cry convincingly" Day, which is a new one, to remind folks just how important it is to wail hysterically when Near Dear Leader kicks the bucket.

Feb. 16 : Dead Chia Head's birth day.

However,they could do it in advance, and have great parade on Chia’s birthday, commemorating his great legacy, HEU nuke bomb.

a nuclear test of a “higher level.”

You mean one that will actually work?

NK is the ONLY country that attempted a nuclear weapon test that failed. TWICE.

In the past, this kind of statements have turned out to be just rhetoric, because China's condemnation or support for some marginal sanction is usually symbolic and face-saving. NK wouldn't want to really take on China with their regime's life on the line for such a symbolic act of China.

Well, I can picture the fatboy holding up Zero's letter and setting it on fire with a lighter at the viewing balcony, drawing deafening cheers from crowds, while massive military parade is in progress.

You’re right....since they basically own us, and the letter is not worth what it is written on, I would expect the same....

An announcer, reading the defense commission statement, says “settling accounts with the United States needs to be done with force, not with words as the U.S. regards jungle law as the rule for survival.”

Well, in N. Korean system, Chi chub is basically a daddy for all. He wants to be a proud dad for millions of them, let alone his baby.

Yes, I agree with you that that was the best estimate. But, now it seems that the group around Jiang Zemin has lost influence, so Japan and China will be on speaking terms again ( http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/01/25/us-china-japan-idUSBRE90O05T20130125 ) and China is critical of NK:

An editorial published Friday in the English-language edition of the state-run Chinese newspaper Global Times struck a displeased tone over Pyongyang’s comments a day earlier. “China’s role and position are clear when discussing North Korea issue in the U.N. Security Council,” the editorial said. “If North Korea engages in further nuclear tests, China will not hesitate to reduce its assistance to North Korea.”

The successful denotation of nuke is the goal the regime has been pursuing for decades. It poured all its resource at the expense of starving millions. They believe their power can only last with its possession of nuclear arms. So they will go ahead. If China throws out their hedging moves and impose all-out sanction on N. Korea, maybe China can hold it off for a while. However, China should make it clear that it could go all the way if NK regime does not bend.
