North Korea threatens to fire nuke missle at us

Report: N. Korea Threatens to Fire Nuclear Missile if U.S. Won't Commit to Talks

Tuesday , October 10, 2006




SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea stepped up its threats aimed at Washington, saying it could fire a nuclear-tipped missile unless the United States acts to resolve its standoff with Pyongyang, the Yonhap news agency reported Tuesday from Beijing.

Even if Pyongyang is confirmed to have nuclear weapons, experts say it's unlikely the North has a bomb design small and light enough to be mounted atop a missile. Their long-range missile capability also remains in question, after a test rocket in July apparently fizzled out shortly after takeoff.

"We hope the situation will be resolved before an unfortunate incident of us firing a nuclear missile comes," Yonhap quoted an unidentified North Korean official as saying. "That depends on how the U.S. will act."

The official said the nuclear test was "an expression of our intention to face the United States across the negotiating table," reported Yonhap, which didn't say how or where it contacted the official, or why no name was given.

China's patience with its longtime ally North Korea appeared to be wearing thin as Beijing warned Pyongyang that its staging of a nuclear test would harm the two countries' relations.

Fears of a new regional nuclear arms race eased when Japan's leader said his nation still had no intention of seeking atomic weapons.

China's Foreign Ministry said North Korea's nuclear test would damage ties between the allies who sided against American-led U.N. forces in the Korean War.

"The nuclear test will undoubtedly exert a negative impact on our relations," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told reporters.

But Liu added that China is "firmly against" a military strike against the North.

"Taking military action against North Korea would be unimaginable," he said.

China also has long opposed sanctions sought by countries such as the United States, which is pressing for potentially crippling new measures against Pyongyang.

A permanent U.N. Security Council member, China has a decisive say over how stern a punishment the international community can mete out to North Korea.

A South Korean envoy, returning to Seoul from Beijing, said Tuesday that China appeared to be leaning toward backing strong U.N. measures.

Alexander Vershbow, the U.S. ambassador to South Korea, told reporters that the nuclear test would make the possibility of direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang more difficult, Yonhap reported.

The U.N. Security Council was weighing a U.S. proposal for potentially crippling sanctions. America has asked the council to adopt a measure that would aim to curb the North's nuclear and ballistic missile programs, prohibit all trade in military and luxury goods, and crack down on illegal financial dealings.

There have been worries that the reported nuclear test would prompt Japan to build its own bomb. But Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told lawmakers Japan's anti-nuclear policy would remain unchanged.

"There will be no change in our non-nuclear arms principles," Abe said.

Japan's pacifist constitution bars the use of force to settle international disputes, and Japan has maintained a policy of not producing, possessing or using nuclear weapons.

South Korea said that it believed the North had exploded a nuclear device on Monday, but officials claimed that it might take up to two weeks to confirm whether the test was successful.

Although the reported test drew worldwide condemnation and talk of harsh sanctions, the South said it would stick with its efforts to engage the North, though the policy would be reviewed.

North Korea celebrated a holiday Tuesday marking the 61st anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea. There was no traffic across a key bridge on a border river between China and North Korea.

China canceled leave for its soldiers along the North Korean border and some units were conducting anti-chemical weapons drills, the pro-Beijing Wen Wei Po reported in Hong Kong. The paper didn't elaborate.

There was no sign of heightened security in the Chinese border city of Dandung, and reporters saw two boatloads of North Korean tourists on the river, smiling and waving to people on the Chinese shore.

Some people are questioning whether it was even a nuclear test due to the low yield.

Threat of nuclear war = America bombs you into rubble with conventional weapons, and your people get to starve and die.

Thing is, he doesn't care about his people. He'd rather build, or TRY to build up his nuclear arsenal, before feeding his people.

No they are not.

The UN is getting really big into supporting terrorist regimes and feeding their people so that the wackos in charge don't have to worry about uprisings.

Kofi Annan is retiring 12-31-06 and likely a South Korean will be taking his post. It's gonna be an exciting new year for Kim Il Jong if he makes it that far.

I hope the little fucker pushes his luck and lobs something this way. China is smart enough to know that at this point we will run through them like shit through a goose (may not be the same situation in 20 years)

I would imagine the little shit would send a bunch of troops to the DMZ and attack us there.

I totally agree! He should know he's barking up the wrong tree. UNLESS, he's either really fuckin stoopid, or he has a trick up his sleeve...

My sister just called me, and says that her husband has just been given orders to ship out to South Korea. (With only 2 weeks notice) Says he will be there for 1 year, and spouses arent allowed to move with them.


He was stationed at Mount Home Air force Base in Boise Idaho. And his last comments made about the "situation", was that they should make a parking lot out of North Korea.

Seems like this little guy is getting a tad big for his pants, and at this point I'm wondering how long it will be before we finally say that enough is enough.

Does anyone else think that threatening to blow up the ocean will get us back to the table? How many nation points would we lose if we let it?

Little Man Syndrome is so freaking dangerous.


Say N.Korea fires a rocket of any kind at Guam, a US territory and Major part of the Pacific Fleet. This is the only Major Target in their range with conventional weapons. This means the Free World will have to declare war on N. Korea.

Here's the scary part: What will China and Russia do? I think the Russian government would want to fight against N. Korea, but I don't trust Putin, who is practically one step from restarting the USSR and declaring himself Premier. And China would have to back it's communist brethern and BAM, a 100 million Plus army is figting against us.

This is leading up to something bigger than the average idiot american realizes.
