North Korea has announced plans to carry out a third nuclear test as part of “upcoming all-out action” against America.
Defying a resolution issued by the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday that condemned Pyongyang for test-firing a missile in December and tightened existing sanctions on the regime, North Korea’s National Defence Commission said the new nuclear test would be part of its action against the “sworn enemy of the Korean people”.
North Korea also vowed to push ahead with launches of more long-range rockets.
“We do not hide that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets which will be launched by the DPRK one after another and a nuclear test of higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out action, a new phase of the anti-US struggle that has lasted century after century, will target against the US, the sworn enemy of the Korean people,” the commission said.
“Settling accounts with the U.S. needs to be done with force, not with words, as it regards jungle law as the rule of its survival.”
“The UNSC should apologise for its crime of seriously encroaching upon the independence of a sovereign state … and repeal all the unreasonable ‘resolutions’ at once,” KCNA reported.
Pyongyang also declared that no further talks on removing nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula are now possible and that a “nuclear test of a higher level” would be carried out.
When something like this happens I always wonder what Reagan or Bush would say. W is easier, since I have that Texas twang in my head all the time, anyway. It’d go a little like “Listen, pard. Y’all really don’t want to do that. No telling where those nukleer submarines of ours will turn up…”
Submarines carry nuclear warheads, right? Not anymore, or at least not the Los Angeles class. They’re loaded with Mark 48 torpedoes, warheads consisting of “high explosive plus unused fuel”, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, mines and Tomahawk cruise missiles.
Submarines, some of the most lethal weapons every conceived and built by man, are now the equivalent of a panther with its teeth and claws removed.
Thank you, Barack Hussein Obama, for putting the lives of United States citizens in jeopardy by negotiating the START treaty with the Russians. For agreeing to a drawdown and also for making public exactly what we have and where it can be found. As if the tyrants of the world would admire and respect you for doing something so stupid, you gigantic ass pimple!
Interesting. Russia’s new Borei class submarine carries nukes. North Korea’s ally, of course.
[box type="info" style="rounded"]EDIT: After consulting with my own private submariner (every house should have one), I realize thinking the Los Angeles class carried nukes was flawed thinking; they’re fast attack boats, not ballistic missile submarines. The Ohio class, as such, carries nukes.[/box]
