Mr Kim, the supreme commander of the North’s 1.2-million-strong armed forces often visits military units to deliver on-the-spot “guidance” on ways to strengthen preparedness. He usually lavishes them with praise and presents gifts such as rifles or binoculars as symbols of their vigilance.
But after watching a shelling drill by an artillery sub-unit on Friday, he upbraided soldiers for their lax approach, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. “Dear Supreme Commander Kim Jong-Un said nothing is more important than preparing for combat now, in the face of an impending conflict with the United States”, KCNA reported.
North Korea is not changing with the times Only getting worse and for what you ask?
North Korea warns US/South Korea military drills could spark disaster: North Korea has traditionally called for the joint exercises to be called off, seeing them as a prelude to invasion. Sin repeated that demand at the United Nations on Friday, first made by Pyongyang last week, for the drills to be cancelled.
South Korea on Jan. 17 rejected the North's call to halt military drills with the United States, saying that as a democracy, it does not launch pre-emptive strikes.The annual drills have been conducted for decades without a major incident. The two allies have stressed that they are purely defensive in nature and aimed at testing readiness against North Korean aggression. Tensions soared early last year as Pyongyang reacted angrily to tightened U.N. sanctions imposed in response to its most recent nuclear test.
Most intelligence analysis says it has yet to master the technology to deploy such weapons. The United States, which has 28,500 troops stationed in the South, regularly engages in drills with its ally, and has said the aircraft carrier USS George Washington was leading a group of ships to visit South Korea in a routine port call.
North Korea warns of all-out war
What appears to be suicidal actions on North Korea's part made me rethink and remember what has been setting up here and years in the making. This is long in the works and North Korea is not alone. Many have for years been calling for our demise. In fact Vladimir Putin got himself re-elected to lead the fight against US hegemony. Putin re-elected to take on US hegemony
Remember The emerging Axis of Iran and Venezuela
Hugo Chávez deepens petroleum and military ties with Russia With Chavez's death there is no change in Venezuela's stand.
Remember we were talking about a story line that was front and center because of President Bush's Bullying and war mongering, He was personally responsible for strengthening relations between Iran and Venezuela as well as with everyone else that was uniting and ramping up to take on Bush. Believe it or not this was 6 years ago and it included North Korea who Bush removed from the original axis of evil because they changed: Yeah right!
The United States will soon lose its place as leader of the world, and the United Nations is a broken organization that is beyond repair, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said . "The United States empire is on its way down and it will be finished in the near future, inshallah," Chavez told reporters, ending the statement with the Arabic phrase for "God willing."
Chavez said that the United Nations is a "deceased" organization because it was formed to bridge the differences between the United States and Russia, and a brand new international organization would have to be formed to replace it.Earlier, Chavez initiated a verbal assault on President Bush, calling him "the devil" during an insult-riddled address to world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly. Remember like North Korea he was part of the NAM and predicting the demise of the United States.
"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, gesturing to where Bush had stood during his speech. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world." He later said he was referring to President Bush when he spoke of the devil. Chavez held up a book by American leftist writer Noam Chomsky "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance" and recommended it to everyone in the General Assembly.
Chavez talked too much! I am afraid though that I agree with this though! Sounds to me like the non aligned Nations plan on taking over with many eager helpers! What do you think? The BBC reported that the meeting of non aligned Nations now consists of 118 countries, mostly from the developing world. The delegates representing almost two-thirds of all the countries in the world gave their approval to a document which spells out the points they agree on. There is strong condemnation of Israel's intervention in Lebanon, a call for the United Nations to be more representative of smaller nations, support for Iran's nuclear energy plans and implicit criticism of much of US foreign policy.
Several of the more than 50 heads of state and government attending the meeting are known for their strong criticism of the United States. Many of the world leaders attending the summit used their seven allocated minutes at the podium to vent their anger at the Bush administration.
The senior North Korean delegate said that American threats had forced his country to arm itself with nuclear weapons. The most significant agreement occurred at the summit sidelines - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India and President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan announced that they would re-start stalled peace talks and co-operate in the fight against terrorism.
Even Kofi said the Nam was important. You have to wonder what is going on with that and the anti U.S. movement. It can't be ignored any longer. This is not good! Bush better start paying attention to the growing section of the world calling for America's demise and an end to Bush's and America's imperialism! On top of that of course, we have the many enemies he is making in prosecuting his new middle east order!
From 9/11 he has been following a plan. Fighting terrorism was not it. It was just the reason he needed to attack Iraq and start to implement his new middle east and world order. Please read the following and you will understand everything. 9/11 was Bush's pearl harbor. Problem is, Bush is no FDR and has squirreled away any sympathy the world had for us.
As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something. He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he did.
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east guaranteeing the loss of Afghanistan, Iraq, and the entire middle east. He did all this so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.
We were all shamelessly being used so Bush could follow his plan for new societal, middle east, and world order. With the middle east failing thanks to Bush's meddling, Iraq and Afghanistan already lost thanks to Bush attacking Iraq diverting forces from the real goal and destabilizing the already fragile middle east! With the anti American and Britain Nations growing and now including 2/3 of the World, on top of the enemies he has made for us in his Middle East tampering. We had better do something ourselves.
I think I ended up reciting all that because things are happening under Obama that is being credited to his Presidency and as this too showed that this axis was in the making for 50 years but Bush pushed the entire world together against us and despite Obama the unifier the division continues!
The elephant in the room as you know is China. They do not want us at their door and NK acting up to a certain level has always kept us away.
The danger and fear is with the boy being controlled by angry Generals will go too far. China can stop all this by being the one to help NK but they are not interested in it.
China is moving forces to the NK border but? In the end I will never understand starving your people for nukes.
If we were just talking North Korea I'd have to be very curious as to why they are committing suicide. However Look back and put this mess together. There are many Nations who want to see us fall off our pedastle but when all is said and done will they help?
