North Korea warns of ‘Super-Mighty Preemptive Strike’
Seoul, 4/21
North Korean state media warned the United
States of a “super-mighty preemptive
strike” after US Secretary of State Rex
Tillerson said the United States was
looking at ways to bring pressure to bear
on North Korea over its nuclear programme.
US President Donald Trump has taken a hard
line with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un,
who has rebuffed admonitions from sole
major ally China and proceeded with
nuclear and missile programmes in defiance
of UN Security Council sanctions.
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper
of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, did
not mince its words.
“In the case of our super-mighty
preemptive strike being launched, it will
completely and immediately wipe out not
only US imperialists’ invasion forces in
South Korea and its surrounding areas but
the US mainland and reduce them to ashes,”
it said.
Reclusive North Korea regularly threatens
to destroy Japan, South Korea and the
United States and has shown no let-up in
its belligerence after a failed missile
test on Sunday, a day after putting on a
huge display of missiles at a parade in
Pyongyang.
Tillerson told reporters in Washington on
Wednesday that the United States was
“reviewing all the status of North Korea,
both in terms of state sponsorship of
terrorism as well as the other ways in
which we can bring pressure on the regime
in Pyongyang.”
US Vice President Mike Pence, on a tour of
Asian allies, has said repeatedly an “era
of strategic patience” with North Korea is
over.
US House of Representatives Speaker Paul
Ryan said during a visit to London the
military option must be part of the
pressure brought to bear.
“Allowing this dictator to have that kind
of power is not something that civilised
nations can allow to happen,” he said in
reference to Kim.
Ryan said he was encouraged by the results
of efforts to work with China to reduce
tension, but that it was unacceptable
North Korea might be able to strike allies
with nuclear weapons.
North and South Korea are technically
still at war because their 1950-53
conflict ended in a truce, not a peace
treaty.
