North Korea Ups the Ante on War on Christian ‘Good Friday’

“…. Hopefully what will occur is that cooler heads will prevail…. and this will de-escalate.” – US Senator Bob Corker

The ongoing game of “military bluff” between  US and North Korea military leaders is getting deadlier by the day, and neither side seems to be backing down.

We all know what the deadly game of “chicken” is all about, when two speeding vehicles are facing head on, trained upon one another on a collision course, traveling at break neck speed, and the first vehicles to veer away from the imminent head on collision is the “chicken”.

It would appear that’s where we are here. I’m not comfortable with it, and I wasn’t thrilled to learn that the head of our own military command is not actually sure “how our actions [ US Stealth bomber SE Asia fly-over 3.28.2013 ] are being interpreted in North Korea” by Jong Eun. Isn’t that like tossing a weapon into the air then wondering right before you catch it  “…wow, I hope this thing’s not loaded ….”

Can our nation afford the luxury of not knowing how this week’s stealth bomber fly-over of North Korean targets would be interpreted by an unhinged, untried, untested young lunatic head-of-state in North Korea? Judging from recent propaganda videos which are emerging from North Korea, the North Korean people are already being whipped up into a frenzy to go to all out war with South Korea and the US.  This has to be a nerve wracking time to be living in South Korea. The video below appears to portray an invasion of South Korea by the North, among other things.

Cited:  “Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the North’s ruling communist party, said that with “the ceasefire agreement blown apart… no one can predict what will happen from now on”.

Voiding the armistice theoretically paves the way for a resumption of hostilities, as the two Koreas never signed a formal peace treaty and remain technically at war.

“The North is giving the impression it wants to put things back to where they were 60 years ago,” said Yang Moo-Jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

Experts point out that North Korea has declared the ceasefire dead or obsolete nearly a dozen times in the past 20 years.”

It’s way past time to de-escalate this ongoing war game and ratchet down the growing tensions. Let’s please NOT let this ongoing military PR show get to the point where Jong Eun actually believes that a pre-emptive strike on US soil is a thinkable, doable action that his nation can survive.

Is there anyone anywhere out there in foreign policy [ WHERE is John Kerry right now? ] land who can remind Jong Eun of what will happen to his nation if they let loose a missile trained onto the United States? There are millions of innocent lives at stake here.  Hello???

The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an “emergency meeting” early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea’s strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.

The images show a chart marked “US mainland strike plan” and missile trajectories that the NK News web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and what they claim is Austin, Texas.

The text on the map, which shows the west coast of North America, says “Plan to hit the U.S. mainland”

The meeting of Pyongyang’s senior military leaders was called after two US B2 bombers, flying out of bases in Missouri, carried out simulated bombing raids on North Korean targets on an island off the coast of South Korea.

“He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets, ordering them to be on standby to fire so that they may strike any time the US mainland, its military bases in the operational theatres in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea,” the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

It added that the B2 test flights demonstrated Washington’s “hostile intent” and said the “reckless” act had gone “beyond the phase of threat and blackmail.”

The North’s military was placed on its highest alert level earlier this week and a hotline link with the South Korean military was severed.

North Korea has also cut the mobile Internet link for foreign visitors, only weeks after the 3G service was introduced.

North Koreans have held a rally at Kim Il-sung Square in central Pyongyang in support of military actionDespite the increasingly belligerent rhetoric and new images emerging from the North Korean regime, analysts believe its missiles are not capable of striking targets as far away as the US mainland and are not, as yet, capable of delivering a nuclear payload.

The images of Kim surrounded by his officers and diagrams of targets in the US are designed for a domestic consumption and to demonstrate the young leader’s mastery of military affairs, experts believe.
