North Korea put its rocket units on standby on Friday to attack US military bases in South Korea and the Pacific, after the United States flew two nuclear-capable stealth bombers over the Korean peninsula in a rare show of force.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and "judged the time has come to settle accounts with the US imperialists in view of the prevailing situation", the official KCNA news agency said.
On Thursday, the United States flew two radar-evading B-2 Spirit bombers on practice runs over South Korea, responding to a series of North Korean threats. They flew from the United States and back in what appeared to be the first exercise of its kind, designed to show America's ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes "quickly and at will", the US military said.
The news of Kim's response was unusually swift.
"He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets of the KPA, ordering them to be standby for fire so that they may strike any time the US mainland, its military bases in the operational theatres in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea," KCNA said.
The North has an arsenal of Soviet-era Scud missiles that can hit South Korea but its longer-range missiles are untested. Independent assessments of its missile capability suggest it may have theoretical capacity to hit US bases in Japan and Guam.
The North has launched a daily barrage of threats since early this month when the United States and the South, allies in the 1950-53 Korean War, began routine military drills.
The South and the United States have said the drills are purely defensive in nature

1) If they really believe that they can take a swing at us.
2) If there's some internal trouble (more than usual) in the country, and all this is being done to distract people from it.
Great interview of “Kim” by “Piers Morgan”
In my minds eye, I see Ronald Reagan being asked about this situation and him making a reference to certain individuals glowing in the dark if one missile is detected on a course targeting either South Korea or the United States, along with the resulting outcry from every Commie loving media and Congressional member imaginable.
It goes to prove that what is bad for the US is as bad and worse for the rest of the world.
A US lack of leadership hurts enough here, but becomes catastrophic for everyone ELSE.
“O” assumed power in a way that was not legitimate and has proceeded to USE power in a way that is not legitimate OR responsible.
“Many countries have found that war is an effective way to reduce demand for food.”
and so more completely control the remaining population.
Here in the US, the socialists have made a leap by attacking sources of food production to make food more expensive and so economically control the population. War by other means, and having the great advantage of being below the radar, as most people believe food comes from grocery stores.
“Better Red than Dead!”
Well, Dr. Syngman Rhee never DID sign the peace accord. Right?
My first thought was “Why is our government trying to distract us?” The second was “When does Obama’s war start?”
Yes, I realize the paper is from the UK.
Based upon actions of the NORKs in the last several years, the script should have them next instigate something more violent than the ship sinking or live artillery rounds into ROK.
“They have THEIR lunatic, half-wit-in-charge and we have OURS!”
1- What did Obama do to cause the poor North Koreans to hate us?
2- How soon until the RAT party calls for the US to surrender to NK? Then we would have the type of government they think we should have.
Does our “Dear Leader” need his sleep to rest up for a fund raising trip? Otherwise the NORKS could take out LA and his minions wouldn’t waken him for the news.
Man, talk about excluding the coolest character of all...
We have no quote from Toto (too???)???
“O’s” global tours (pre and post election)systematically kissing the a%$ of each and every leader on earth while gratuitously apologizing for our BEING a sovereign and powerful national entity was not exactly designed to illicit the esteem and co operation of some certifiable lunatics, who just HAPPEN to find themselves at the head of affairs in third world s&^% holes and who possess Lilliputian economies and the ‘have-not’ envy associated those kinds of circumstances!!
Their half-wit would be wise to look at what he’s doing from a different angle ... that is, take pause to consider his actions from a different slant (or is it slope?)
That crazy MF has AUSTIN Texas as a target!!!!
that’s a little too close for comfort to where I live!
if that little POS wants to target LA or even better San Francisco... well... I could live with that. But FREAKING TEXAS!? This is war!
Has there been any movement of North Korean troops and supplies to a forward position?
He’s a chronic alcoholic.
CW II ?
I saw their "Attack on the US Mainland" map, and these guys are Very VERY Serious. So serious, that the route their missiles will take, according to the map, is the DIRECT ROUTE. No pussy-footing around with great-circle routes... no.... a DIRECT LINE route from NK to the US mainland.
