N. Korea threatens nuclear strike on White House
AFP ^ | 28 July 2014 | AFP

Posted on 07/28/2014 9:05:22 AM PDT by Thistooshallpass9

A top-ranking North Korean military official has threatened a nuclear strike on the White House and Pentagon after accusing Washington of raising military tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military's General Political Bureau, during a speech to a large military rally in Pyongyang Sunday on the anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.

Hwang, who holds the rank of vice marshal in the Korean People's Army, said a recent series of South Korea-US military drills, one of which included the deployment of a nuclear-powered US aircraft carrier, had ramped up tensions.

Mmmm, no.

With all the crap going on elsewhere, NoKo must be feeling left out and ignored again. So they throw another temper tantrum to get attention again.

They would first have to develop a device that actually works. Then develop an ICBM that goes where it is programmed to go, and be able to travel more than a few thousand miles.

Pathetic attempt at making a threat.

As I’ve slowly realized just how xenophobic, dangerous, and just bizarre North Korea is — not to mention how they are behind much of the Islamic weaponry, including nukes — the less funny MASH is to me.

But like Hogan’s Heros, for my grandparents I suspect.

My first thought was that NorK missiles aren’t accurate enough to hit the White House and would likely hit something else in DC.

But then I didn’t really see a downside...

Hussein and the Wookie might not be there but the "brain trust" of advisors might well be. Obama couldn't survive without those people as he has no brain of his own.

That said, the Norks should be a bit more ambitious and just take out all of DC.

What would middle America do without all the corrupt controlling D.C. Communist, Socialist, lawyers, insiders, the honorable IRS, multimillionaire lobbyist, agencies who target and spy on the law abiding, corrupt banking insiders, those who've aided and abetted wide open lawless borders while forcing middle America to pay for their own low wage replacements?

How would what's left of middle America would ever survive this catastrophe?

Oh, no, they get rid of corrupt politicians, incompentent bureaucrats and greedy lobbists.

We’d respond by flatting Pyongyang, and that would be the end of the North Krean government.

... Wait a minute...

“The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military’s General Political Bureau, during a speech to a large military rally in Pyongyang Sunday on the anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.”

The statement illustrates WHY original language definitions and their correct communication are so important and how their misuse misinforms the masses all the time.

An armistice is not an end to a war, it is only a truce, a temporary condition, waiting for a formal peace treaty. With only an armistice in hand, a state of war still exists and the peace of the moment is only a truce, not an end to the war.

The author has been rendered ignorant by our lousy education system.

Well, I heard most Americans now see the Washington monument as the big middle finger to America.

I think we should take Iran n Korea and terrorist threats seriously and respond militarily

The only problem with that is those in D.C. would force what's left of middle America to pay for rebuilding their countries. I guess they'd have to raise our taxes and raise the non-government employee retirement age to 74 years old.

What many seem to forget or not make the connection, all this testing not only sends messages but it also is real testing of short range missiles for sale and use to Iran, Hamas, etc., in order to take out Israel or inflict major damage depending upon the warhead used.
