The day before стало известноthat the North Korean command brought all the missile and artillery units of the armed forces of the country into full combat readiness. This was reported by the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea.
It seems that Kim Jong-un from words goes to the point. The command order touched, in particular, strategic missile units and long-range artillery. The missile units were ordered to prepare not for anything, but for strikes against the continental territory of the United States, as well as against the islands of Guam and Hawaii.
The message from the CTC says: "From this point on, the high command of the Korean Peoples Army puts into full combat readiness all long-range artillery units, including strategic missile units, which will target all enemy bases on the continental United States, Hawaii and Guam."
On the eve, reminds “Interfax”, Kim Jong-un was present at the artillery firing and watched the actions of the gunners to prevent the landing of amphibious assault. Addressing the gunners, the leader emphasized the need to "destroy all enemies to the last man ..."
Even earlier, the North Korean state portal "Uriminzokkiri" posted hosting a propaganda video on the successful advancement of North Korean paratroopers to South Korea and the “three-day war”, before the plan of which blitzkrieg Adolf Hitler blinks.
The footage shows how North Korea conducts artillery shelling and launches missiles in the direction of enemy territory. After artillery training, valiant DPRK troops cross the border. They are supported Tanks, armored vehicles, helicopters and fighters. Against the background of these "events", the announcer broadcasts that the DPRK "will occupy Seoul and other cities and take 150 American citizens hostage." On the third day of the war, according to the scenario, Seoul and other South Korean cities will plunge into chaos. There will be no food, no water, no communications.
Then, obviously, the two separated by the imperialists of Korea will be reunited. Kim Jong-un's dream will come true. And northerners eat plenty of South Korean food. That is why it will not be there.
After watching an awesome video, General Jeon Seung Cho and Chairman of the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Korea, General James Thurman, commander of the armed forces of the Republic of Korea, signed a plan to fight against North Korean provocations. About it says in a press release received by ITAR-TASS by the command of the US armed forces in Kazakhstan: “The unified plan, in which the Republic of Korea plays a major role with the support of the United States, is an emergency response program for future North Korean provocations. Its development began on the basis of mutual agreements reached between the chairmen of the committee of chiefs of staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the joint committee of the chiefs of staff of the United States Air Force after shelling by North Korean artillery of Yonphyo Island (November 2010). ”
Using the preparation of this plan, the document says, "the Allies increased their readiness to immediately and decisively respond to any provocations from North Korea."
Under provocations are meant invasion of border areas, as well as violation of the airspace of South Korea. According to the plan, the US armed forces will not only participate in full-scale hostilities, but also be able to intervene in small clashes between the DPRK and the ROK.
The DPRK also found provocations with which it intended to fight. 27 March стало известноthat the DPRK MFA appealed to the UN Security Council. The situation in the Korean Peninsula is “extremely tense because of the provocative actions of the United States and South Korea,” the statement said. The provocative actions of diplomats attributed the ongoing US-South Korean maneuvers using the B-52 bombers. Pyongyang also noted that US strategic missiles "are now aimed at the DPRK, and US nuclear submarines equipped with nuclear weapons, are off the South Korean coast. " The text of the document is summarized: "As a result, the threat of a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula has become real."
State Department spokesman Patrick Wentrell believes that North Korea will not achieve anything with its threats: "The threats and provocations of the DPRK will not achieve anything, they lead it to even greater isolation and undermine international efforts to ensure peace and stability in Northeast Asia." According to the diplomat, “the militant rhetoric and threats from North Korea are a model of the decision on forcing tension and intimidation.”
In general, it is true. You can add: this rhetoric is also almost pure bluff. And bluff, assuming the existence of humor in North Korea, is ironic. However, the big question is who in the world is forcing tension and intimidation, and who is forced to bite off to this intimidation. If in peace rating Stockholm International Peace Research Institute for QNUMX year Qatar, arming jihadist militants in Syria and on its border, stands at 2012-m place, and the United States - at 12-m, then North Korea takes 88 place from 152. (Russia, by the way, is on 158-m - so it is more dangerous than the DPRK).
Probably, Russia and the DPRK want to kindle the flames of war on the planet, and Qatar is fighting for peace in Syria. Yes, with this explanation, everything falls into place.
In fact, in the DPRK, although there is no mass starvation, the problem of malnutrition still exists, and it is at least biased to write it off. Although the DPRK is a closed country, something is known about it. Approximately 15% of the population there today is undernourished. In January 2013, the Asia Press Portal опубликовал report, which investigates cases of famine in the north-eastern outskirts of Pyongyang. The main reason for the famine is not politics, but the poor harvest of 2012 of the year, which killed several thousand people.
In March, 2013, due to the 12 February nuclear tests, the Security Council imposed new sanctions on the DPRK, which also affected the welfare of the nation. The complex of measures approved by the UN is designed, inter alia, to curb the illegal activities of North Korean banks and diplomats. Also, the Security Council document provides for increased control over the goods imported and exported from the territory of North Korea. By the way, in response, TsTAK has spread statement by the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK, which states that Pyongyang "does not recognize the new resolution of the UN Security Council and considers it a" criminal document. " A representative of the North Korean Foreign Ministry noted that the ultimate goal of the policy "aimed at disarming the DPRK and strangling it economically is the elimination of the ideology and system chosen by the Korean people." A foreign ministry spokesman warned that the DPRK "will take decisive countermeasures in self-defense and will eventually unleash a great war for the reunification of the motherland if the United States chooses conflict." The diplomat announced North Korea’s intention to "strengthen its nuclear deterrent forces and launch carrier rockets in order to continue the struggle and win the final victory, relying on its own forces."
The key here is to “strangle it economically.” The nuclear program of the DPRK is aimed precisely at ensuring that the United States continues to provide economic assistance to Pyongyang. This, by the way, does not mean that Pyongyang will abandon the Juche doctrine and from aspirations to a bright communist future. Nor does this mean that UN will cease to make a demand to recognize his country as a nuclear power. He will simply refrain from new tests for a while - in exchange for food. The West must pay for its temporary bourgeois peace — something like this must be reasoned in North Korea.
In Pyongyang, they don’t want to give in to America and the UN, that is, to completely abandon their nuclear plans. There is a reason for that too, and quite a weighty one.
Rumor has it that Kim Jong Un and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are two pair of boots and friends do not spill water, and that where uranium is, there is plutonium. Gaddafi gave way to the West, well, and these two, who heard on TV the enthusiastic "wow" of bloodthirsty Mrs. Clinton, will stand their ground.
Muammar did not just make a mistake, wanting to appease the West - he made a strategic miscalculation, which will be followed by generations of the following politicians - the leaders of those countries that do not follow the US. It is said that people learn from their mistakes, but the Libyan colonel made such a mistake, on which one can and must learn from others. Because if the same Eun does not learn from it, then they will continue to learn from his example. With him will be the same thing that happened to the brave, but rather trusting colonel. The moderately aggressive rhetoric of Ahmadinejad is explained in the same way. In February, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran said that Tehran already possesses nuclear potential, although it is only defensive in nature. Comrade Ahmadinejad Advised the international community to treat Iran as a nuclear power, as such is the Islamic Republic.
This, of course, propaganda. But until now, no one in Iran is fussing. Neither Israel (Netanyahu ruled there, a Cubist government artist, author of the famous “Red Lines” canvas), nor the United States (where the DPRK is seriously worried about the new Defense Minister) are in no hurry to bomb the centrifuges. Both Tel Aviv and Washington have distinguished themselves so far in battles on the field of rhetoric. In essence, if you look at them, they simply set the style of behavior for both Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Un.
The second parallel between the Iranian and North Korean leaders is that one constantly talks about building new, improved centrifuges, making it clear to the Six countries and the IAEA that the Tehran will not abandon its programs, and with sanctions, they say, they will not break us, and the other stubbornly continues its test program (an underground nuclear explosion in February), as if deliberately provoking the West to sanctions. Today we made an underground explosion, and tomorrow it will crash on the ground. Somewhere in Hawaii. Or on Guam. Missiles will fly, and a horde of brave soldiers total 1,1 million people. in the name of the triumph of the doctrine, Juche will invade Washington, New York and Philadelphia. Everything will be even faster and worse than in one Hollywood film, about which quite a lot has been written in recent days. By the way, the Koreans will cope with the imperialist enemy alone, without the help of the Russians. It was not for nothing that they left the agreements on non-aggression and the denuclearization of the peninsula concluded after the Korean War. In addition, the Russians, like the Chinese, agreed with the Security Council’s sanctions against the DPRK.
In a word, Colonel Gaddafi - rest in peace for him - truly gave his death historical an example to all those who want to pin down the heavy boot of an American or some other military, a rabid lover of a “preventive” war in the name of the so-called “democratic values” or the so-called “national security”.
Thus, the behavior of Pyongyang in the international arena consists of two main factors: 1) half-starved people of the DPRK need food, while overseas capitalists must supply the Juche regime, they will not lose from these fat cats; 2) Gaddafi’s unenviable fate and destroyed Libya instead of the prosperous Jamahiriya as an unforgettable lesson of NATO democracy.
At the same time, the bellicose rhetoric of both Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-un predetermines, whatever one may say, the West, which pokes its nose everywhere. By the way, the periodic appearance in the media of various rumors about cooperation between North Korea and Iran, including in the field of nuclear weapons testing, and even Iran’s sponsorship of the latter is probably a good way to blackmail the United States and its allies.
Let it be so, but the situation is in a geopolitical field of dead-end. Hardly anyone is seriously afraid (except for Chuck Hagel) that Pyongyang will go to Washington, and especially the propaganda videos mounted in the DPRK do not scare anyone. But, on the other hand, both the USA, and Japan, and China, and especially South Korea, may be wary of instability in North Korea. Anything can be the cause of instability: mass hunger, the negative impact of a set of UN sanctions, the White House’s overly aggressive rhetoric, Kim Jong-un's bad mood due to a quarrel with Lee Sol Zhu, an unsuccessful nuclear test, a grenade-laden South Korean border guard, and so on. Therefore, the only question today is who will quickly feed the carriers of the Juche doctrine.
