Following up on their last example of premature explodulation, the nutbar Norks are promising more missile “tests.” Uh huh. Excerpt:
North Korea will continue to test missiles, a senior official has told the BBC in Pyongyang, despite international condemnation and growing military tensions with the US.
“We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,” Vice-Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol told the BBC’s John Sudworth.
He said that an “all-out war” would result if the US took military action.
Earlier, US Vice-President Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the US.
He said his country’s “era of strategic patience” with North Korea was over.
Mr Pence arrived in Seoul on Sunday hours after North Korea carried out a failed missile launch.
Tensions have been escalating on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.
Mr Han told the BBC: “If the US is planning a military attack against us, we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method.”
As we used to say back when I wore Uncle Sam’s woodland camo, “Money talks, and bullshit walks.” The Norks are going to be walking back a lot of bullshit, unless I miss my guess.
Speaking of back when I wore Uncles Sam’s colors, back when the Cold War was still on and the Soviet Union was still a going concern, we saw a lot of similar posturing. Take, for example, last Saturday’s celebratory parade where the bat-guano loony Norks strutted their stuff on Pyongyang, showing off all of their various class of missiles.
Well, the Soviets used to do the same kind of thing; every May Day, through Red Square, with missiles on launcher trucks figuring prominently.
Trouble was, as we found out after the Soviet Union collapsed, a lot of those missiles were fake. I’d bet serious money that a lot of the Nork’s parade hardware is fake as well.
Now, there are real threats posed by this nutbag regime: They have one hell of a lot of artillery aimed at Seoul, and could do a lot of damage before the USAF and the South Korean Air Force managed to pulverize all those guns.
But ICBMS? No. Color me skeptical. When it comes to that kind of hardware, the Norks are the nation-state equivalent of The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.
