"As we declared, our strong revolutionary might put in place all measures to counter possible U.S. pre-emptive strike," the spokesman said, according to the Korean Central News Agency. "Pre-emptive strike is not the monopoly of the United States."
Last week, the communist country warned that it had the right to launch a pre-emptive strike, saying it would strengthen its war footing before joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises scheduled for this weekend.
If it becomes necessary to engage in a shooting conflict with North Korea, it's not going to be hard to back up why it's necessary. If these bozos didn't have enough artillery aimed at Seoul to take it out three times, they would be toast by now.
The spokesman also said it would be a "wise" step for the United States to cooperate on nuclear issues with North Korea in the same way it does with India.
"If the U.S. is truly interested in finding a realistic way of resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, it would be wise for it to come out on the path of nuclear cooperation with us," he said.
I seriously want some of that North Korean crack. It's gotta be some over the top stuff to cause these DPRK officials to think that North Korea and India exhibit the same level of good will necessary to enter into a nuclear development agreement. Reality isn't even in the equation. Did these people skip over the news about our approach to Pakistan on the same issue? Pakistan has better odds of getting a nuclear development treaty than North Korea ever will.. North Korea's leadership is completely bonkers. It's just preaching to its own brainwashed populous.
Asia is in a period of unparalleled economic boom... Meanwhile, the DPRK's people are starving to death, abused and tortured, and completely brainwashed into thinking none of it is their leadership's fault. This continues to just be flat out sad and pathetic. It shouldn't be possible. It's human tragedy of an all to surreal level.
