Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea said Thursday that it plans to carry out a new nuclear test and more long-range rocket launches, all of which it said are a part of a new phase of confrontation with the United States.
The North's National Defense Commission said the moves would feed into an "upcoming all-out action" that would target the United States, "the sworn enemy of the Korean people."

Carried by the state media, the comments are the latest defiant flourish from the reclusive North Korean regime, whose young leader Kim Jong Un has upheld his father's policy of pursuing a military deterrent and shrugging off international pressure.
The defense commission statement follows a United Nations Security Council resolution on Tuesday that the United States pushed for, condemning a recent recent rocket launch by North Korea and expanded existing sanctions.

Reagan said 'peace through strength'; but BHO believes the US has unfairly hindered Communist aggression worldwide, and consequently wants the US removed so that the world-wide revolution may occur, and we may all enjoy our peaceful socialist utopia. Free from religion, liberty, and personal choice.
Watch and see...
In 6 months, we’ll be shipping a barge load of fuel and food in exchange for promises to be a good boy.
As far as I’m concerned, that statement is tantamount to declaring they intend to nuke us. I’d say we have every right to preempt that, if we had a President with the stones to push the button.
Yep, more BS from our g mint, pay off our enemies while we go broke...instead, just tell porno boy if he test such missles we light up his country for 10000 years..and mean it..a life lived in a flash would be better than one lived in starvation under porno boy..
Fat Boy knows Obama is more flexible now that the election is over and he will get anything he wants from COMRADE Obama
I take comfort that Navy Pelosi’s district will be ground zero for a North Korean nuke. Can we paint a bulls eye on her roof with a taunting message in Korean...”Bet you can’t hit this”?
Son of Puggsley needs a strawman to beat on. Remember when liberals told us that criticizing North Korea would antagonize them. The Choom Leader hasn’t said “boo” to The Fat Leader and they are still ragging on us.
Be a shame if “something went awry” with that nuke test.
Once again, the flea shits on the elephant.
Who, besides me, remembers the 1990’s humanitarian aid package we gave N. Korea in exchange for ‘promises’ to discontinue efforts to create a nuke? Brokered by Carter and endorsed by Clinton, this agreement was hailed by the press as proof of Clinton’s world leadership prowess. A Republican, they argued, would have attempted to FORCE the Koreans to desist under threat of military force. But Clinton built a bridge and solved the problem diplomatically.
Shortly after the Iraqi ‘Food for Oil’ scandal broke at the UN, when Kofi Anan’s son and his right hand man were convicted of accepting bribes in return for letting Saddam use his ‘humanitarian’ oil sales for military purposes, the Korean scandal made page 6 or so in the newspapers. Turns out the UN inspectors had been bribed and the billions of dollars in US ‘humanitarian’ aid had been diverted directly into the N. Korean nuke program. Good thing too! ‘Cause N. Korea was broke and probably didn’t have enough money to build a nuke on their own, they needed a financier.
The press never dwelt on the consequences of the betrayal, because it would have forced them to examine the brilliance of Clinton’s foreign diplomacy; but it turns out that we built the N. Korean nukes. To this day Clinton believes he’s the greatest diplomat that ever lived, although I would argue he did more damage to US security than any President before BHO. Of course, that’s not a fair comparison since BHO does his on purpose.
And to top it of, guess who paid for their nuclear reactor? It was the stupid US Government. I still remember the picture of this little beer bellied squirt arm in arm with Madeleine Notsobright. That should tell you enough how bright our government is.
“As far as Im concerned, that statement is tantamount to declaring they intend to nuke us. Id say we have every right to preempt that, if we had a President with the stones to push the button.”
One EMP warhead detonation over Kansas and our technologically enabled economy/culture is destroyed. Within weeks the death toll through starvation and anarchy will be approaching 100 million. A year later over 200 million people will have died. The survivors will be struggling to restore order and a preindustrial agricultural based society. Likely the Russians will take over Alaska and the Chicoms, Mexico will invade Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and southern California. The Chicoms will take northern California, Oregon, and Washington.
The EMP threat is not an “if” but a “when” proposition. All the North Koreans are waiting for is the go ahead from the Chicoms. If the EMP attack doesn’t come from North Korea it will come from an Iranian missile launched from a container ship near our shore.
An EMP attack is probably the greatest immediate threat to the security of the US homeland. Our government is doing absolutely nothing to prepare the population, harden the electronic grid or defend with an ABM system against the one or two incoming missiles from a rogue state required to pull off a successful EMP attack. Meanwhile, the government is buying drones to spy on its citizens and ammunition to use against citizens. Likely Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Holder, and Panetta feel more threatened by the average Tea Party member than they do by North Korea.
You are correct. That is how I took that statement as well.
If we had any stones of all we would have shot down the last rocket that zoomed over the island of Okinawa. We certainly have the capability. That rocket was a direct threat to the lives of military personnel and innocent civilians on that island and we did nothing.
I also expect Obama to do nothing as a future rocket heads toward Honolulu, Seattle or San Francisco
Murkowski Blocks Effort to Protect US Power Grid
The absence of an ABM-SDI strong enough to protect against a outlaw nation like NK may be the biggest sin of all ever committed by the bipartisan elite against the American people.
You pulled the words right out of my mouth. I was reading down-thread to see if someone already said what I was about to type. Thanks.
Oh, they're plenty smart. Problem is the depth of their wickedness. Who was it that said nothing in politics happens by chance?
