N Korea’s War Hysteria Baffles The World
Missiles, tanks and trucks laden with nuclear fire arms rolled down the streets of Pyongyang in a march of tens of thousands of soldiers as North Korea’s monocrat Kim Jong-un warned the world of catastrophe if the provocative actions towards his country are not stopped. “We will reply with nuclear attack. No provocation will be accepted. Be prepared for a war” he yelled sending tremors across US and the West.
The aggressive show of military might was part of Day of the Sun celebrations being taken place on the occasion of 105th birth anniversary of its founding president Kim II Sung.
Two powerful nuclear arsenel – one ICBM and a SLBM-were displayed for the first time. Two types of Inter-continental ballistic missiles – enclosed in canister launchers mounted on the back of transporter erector launcher trucks, or TELs. Of the two one was similar to the Chinese DF-41 which can hit the targets far off 9000 kilometres.
The SLBM (Submarine launched Ballistic Missile)- named as Pukkusong can hit targets away at 650 miles. It was highly powerful and according to defence experts, it is a stealth weapon that can escape the eye of radars or under-water lasers. Both these nuclear weapons are clearly aimed at the US and according to Defence analysts, the ICBMs can escape the US’s interceptor missiles.
Soldiers saluted their leader and there was an oath pledging to protect the country from any external attack. We will not be cowed down by American threats, screamed a massive rally of youth in Pyongyong city. They also chanted for their beloved leader “we will die for you”
The immediate provocation for North Korea’s massive display of its power was Donald Trump’s decision to deploy ultra modern warship USS Carl Vinson to the Korean peninsula.
US strongly believes the maverick dictator may order yet another nuclear weapons test which is expected to trigger bigger global outrage.
According to a live telecast in the North Korean TV during the parade, the leader has accused Donald Trump for the war hysteria. There was no direct speech by the young despot but his quotes were repeatedly aired.
“If the US does any reckless provocation, we will immediately apply a destructive strike with our revolutionary power. We’re prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and we are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks,” Choe Ryong Hae, a senior member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) said in a speech during t show. “Kim is going ballistic. We will do nuclear jusice and remember, we are neighter syria nor Iraq to be destroyed mercilessly” he added.
Meanwhile, President Trump has closeted with senior military and defence officials and reviewed the situation. US is still hopeful of Chinese help to defuse the tensions and rein in North Korea. A tweet from Trump indicated this:
North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.
