North Korean official says will continue missile tests - BBC

REUTERS

 

LONDON (Reuters) - North Korea will continue to regularly test missiles and any military action against it by the United States would prompt "all out war", a senior North Korean official told the BBC on Monday.

 

North Korea has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions and has said it has developed a missile that can strike the U.S. mainland. Its latest missile test on Sunday failed a few seconds after launch.

 

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea on Monday that recent U.S. strikes in Syria, one of Pyongyang's few close allies, and Afghanistan showed that the resolve of President Donald Trump should not be tested.

 

"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis," the BBC quoted Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol as saying in an interview.

 

"If the U.S. is reckless enough to use military means it would mean from that very day, an all out war."

 

North Korean state media last week warned of a nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of American aggression, but the White House said there was no evidence it possessed that capability.

 

The BBC reported Han also said North Korea believed its nuclear weapons protect it from the threat of military action by the United States.

A strike on North Korea will be swift and strategic. They won't know what hit them. Trump has already shown how he doesn't care about the haters, he'll just get it done. The message this will send will change the world.

The US Military has already sorted out the missiles and nukes. Readers should really expand their research skills to encompass  many sources of news. The US took out the missile just after take off. Fake news is everywhere. I read that many posters are so uninformed, their comments are very child like and very typical of the snowflake type reporting.

There are so many options left for the US to sort out NK, like Rod of God, EW and remote reprogramming.

Never fear when Trump is near.

Why allow this annoying little boy to generate so much publicity ? All he is after is the attention.

Just ignore him, take him out of the news, but if he ever gets right out of line just hit the red button and be done with it !

Kim would most likely hit Seoul and maybe go for Japan if the USA launch military action.  He could certainly take out millions in South Korea.  The USA needs to just take their "armada" back to home waters and let the Chinese deal with Kim.

There is no doubt that North Korea could be a threat.  It is a brutal regime that treats it's people very badly and it continues on it's path to build a nuclear arsenal.  For many years it has been smouldering away and it seems that Trump's presence into the mix fits in well for Kim and his rhetoric.  In fact he is exactly what Kim has always said about the "American oppressor".   I suspect that things will settle down a bit and increased sanctions will be put in place by the Chinese.

Seoul is within old fashioned artillery range of NK, and millions of lives could be devastated before anyone could make a decision to do anything, much less do it.

 

Eventually, the despotic regime would be taken out, but at the cost of millions of lives- the vast majority of them Korean, and they seem to be pretty quiet as the US and China discuss the options.

 

My suggestion?  Draw a line halfway between the DMZ and the Yalu, and offer up half to China and half to S. Korea.  Let them decide when and if the fireworks fly.  Then let the survivors decide whether they want to live on the Chinese side, or the United Korean side.  

 

It's not any civilians in the USA who will bear the brunt of the destruction.  It's not our fight to start.

Interesting view but surely that would consist of both China and South Korea taking military action against the North.  The death toll would be massive.  Unless I am misunderstanding what you are suggesting?  I would have thought that taking out Kim and his team would be far more productive with limited loss of civilian lives.  Not easy by any means but surely doable

My suggestion was tongue in cheek, with the real point being that there's got to be something in this for China if they're going to be a positive player in this long running debacle.  

 

And that the US civilians sleep many thousands of miles away from the carnage, so we have no right to start whatever's going to happen.  No matter the ultimate outcome, millions of Seoul residents are the ones who will take it in the shorts.
