North Korean army brought to high alert

The Korean People’s Army is on high alert in order to start fighting at any moment in response to the maneuvers of the United States, Japan and South Korea in the Sea of ​​Japan.


In a statement by the representative of the General Staff of the DPRK armed forces, the Korean People’s Army received an order to “watch the actions of the American and Japanese aggressors, as well as the South Korean regime, in order to start military operations at any time,” ITAR-TASS reports. The document notes that the fault of Washington, Tokyo and Seoul on the Korean Peninsula is heating up again, despite the steps taken earlier by the DPRK, aimed at easing tensions in this region. According to the North Korean military, evidence of this is the decision of the United States and South Korea to sign a strategic plan for military cooperation, involving a preemptive strike on the territory of the DPRK.

“If the US administration is really interested in the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, then Washington, not Pyongyang, needs to take the first step in this direction,” said the representative of the General Staff of the Korean Peoples Army. “For now, it is Washington that conducts a hostile policy towards North Korea that poses a nuclear threat to it region. "

As reported by the headquarters of the South Korean Navy, joint maneuvers of the United States, South Korea and Japan, which were supposed to start off the coast of the Korean Peninsula, may be postponed due to the approaching powerful typhoon. Consultations are currently underway with a view to deciding whether to postpone the maneuvers or completely cancel them. According to weather forecasters, on Wednesday, October 9, typhoon "Danas" will cover the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula.

In the course of the planned exercises, it was planned to maneuver warships, as well as search and rescue operations. The nuclear aircraft carrier of the US Navy “George Washington”, as well as South Korean and Japanese destroyers equipped with the Aegis system were to take part in the exercises.

    A normal reaction, so far no big deal ... The main thing is that the exercises would take place "within"

    Another example for comparison:
    The destroyer of the “King Sejong” type destroyer of the South Korean Navy, built using Aegis technology, is an analogue of the American “Arly Burke” (there are 3 of them, years of commissioning 2008, 2010, 2011). Displacement - 7650 tons (standard), 10 290 tons (full). Armament: two Mark 41 UVP (a total of 80 cells used for placing Standard-2 missiles and ASROC missiles), up to 32 Hyunmoo III tactical missiles (an analogue of the American Tomahawk cruise missiles; 16 SSM-700K Hae Sung anti-ship missiles, 1x21 SAM self-defense SAMs RAM , 1x1 127-mm artillery mount Mark 45 and 1x7 30-mm machine gun "Goalkeeper", two helicopters.

    Patrol ships of the North Korean fleet of the Najin type (years of construction 1973, 1975) are the flagships of the DPRK Eastern and Western fleets, respectively. According to some reports, one of the Nadzhin TFR was decommissioned in 2002. Created on the basis of the Soviet TFR type 50 40s. Displacement - 1200 tons (standard), 1500 tons (full). Armament: 2x1 PU RCC P-15, 2x1 100-mm AU B-34, 2x2 57-mm AU, 2x2 30 mm AU AK-230, 6x2 25 mm AU 2M-3M, 2 bombers, 30 min.

    As they say, feel the difference ...

    They already have paranoia. The Americans are now not up to North Korea, especially since the latter have some kind of nuclear bomb. Amers would now deal with Syria and solve internal problems. And to climb the Koreans, under our nose, they are unlikely to dare. It’s just that Kim Jong (like him there) is trying to raise his authority in this way and why should the thread be cut to the noise.
    If the Americans wanted to bomb them, they would have bombed them long ago. Chances and reasons were to the heap.

    don’t look at North Korea as eccentrics - these are very, very dangerous guys .... someone can guarantee that, for example, comrade Kim dying (and I’m sure that he will live for a short time, my mother don’t cry for the disease) command to bombard South Korea with nuclear weapons ... and at the same time Komsomolsk on the Amur, which would be more fun to die ???? and a bunch of his dicky fanatics will fulfill the will of the moon-faced and sun-like ...

      No need to "demanize" the DPRK. Turn it around, there’s someone to pull the trigger on the gun to stop Kim if he wants to. There, in fact, the army and its generals rule. Kim is an official. And the generals are well aware that any conflict with the South is a death sentence for the DPRK ...
