North Korea claims it has put its missiles "on standby" — zeroed in on U.S. military targets in the Pacific.
This latest and most aggressive saber-rattling from Pyongyang follows today's show of force by the United States, which flew two nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers over South Korea.
Yesterday, North Korea's posted this press release to its website, threatening to "reduce the U.S., cesspit of vices, to ashes at a single blow."
Koreans Ready to Show Their Mettle to U.S., Other Hostile Forces
Pyongyang, March 27 (KCNA) -- The hearts of all service personnel and people of the DPRK are burning with hatred for the enemies and will to wipe them out, upon hearing the statement of the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army in which it clarified its strong resolution to take practical military actions in retaliation against the hostile forces which dared harm the sovereignty and dignity of the supreme leadership of the country.
KPA officer Cha Ok Chol, 37, told KCNA:
How can we pardon the Yankees who hatched even a sinister plot to defame the supreme dignity, which we regard dearer than our own lives, not content with staging madcap nuclear war drills?
This means the height of blatant provocations as they put all the hostile acts perpetrated by them against the DPRK so far into the shade. This hardens the retaliatory will of the service personnel of my unit tasked to strike one of the military bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops in the operational zone in the Pacific.
All my service personnel keeping themselves on the highest alert will give play to their will and capability to wipe out the enemies once Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un issues an order and reduce the U.S., cesspit of vices, to ashes at a single blow.
Yu Yong Sun, 20, girl student of Kim Il Sung University, said:
Whoever allows the supreme dignity of the Korean nation to be hurt and threatened cannot claim to be a Korean.
The hearts of my fellow students are burning with the will to become human A-bombs and fly to the positions of the Yankees and blow them up.
We have all modern high precision nuclear strike means in place. We have something more powerful than them -- that is the leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un, great Songun commander, and the single-minded unity of the army and people rallied around him.
We will replace our pens by arms for taking revenge upon the enemies once the Supreme Commander gives us an order.
We should teach a lesson to the upbeat Yankees who put Iraq and Afghanistan under their control.
The Yankees will surely meet a miserable end for hatching a sinister plot to hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
