Insanity: North Korea Puts Strategic Rocket Units On Combat-Ready Status, Preps For Strikes Against US Mainland And Hawaii

North Korea: Not Too Bright

North Korea: Not Too Bright

By Mark Willacy, ABC News – “North Korea has put its strategic rocket units on combat-ready status, with orders to prepare for possible strikes against the United States mainland and Hawaii.

But many analysts doubt that Pyongyang even has the capability to hit the US.

The North Korean regime is enraged that the US has recently flown B-52 bombers over the Korean Peninsula, and has accused Washington of preparing an invasion.

In response, the North Korean army command has ordered all artillery troops and strategic rocket units to be ready for combat.

A statement from the Korean People’s Army supreme command ordered rocket units to be prepared to attack ‘all US military bases in the Asia-Pacific region, including the US mainland, Hawaii and Guam’.

Despite its successful long-range rocket launch in December, most experts believe North Korea is years from developing a genuine inter-continental ballistic missile that could strike the continental United States.

Hawaii and Guam would also be outside the range of its medium-range missiles, which would be capable, however, of striking US military bases in South Korea and Japan.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has spent the past few weeks touring frontline military units, monitoring live fire artillery drills and making inflammatory speeches about wiping out the enemy.

Sabre-rattling and displays of brinkmanship are nothing new in the region, but there are concerns that the current situation is so volatile that one accidental step could escalate into serious conflict.” Read more.

North Korea Giant Distraction Designed to Pull American Resources Away from Middle East? – “In any good con there’s at least two conspirators. Someone may be used to create a diversion; a distraction of sorts to draw prying eyes away from the real action. This scenario is certainly something to consider when analyzing the dynamics unfolding on the world scene. North Korea has no hope of winning a battle against even one American submarine let alone the entire US military. But do they really plan on it or are they simply part of a slight of hand trick being played by their Persian buddies?” Read more.
