    North Korea Warns World – Missile Tests Were Practice for Real Strikes on US, South Korean Targets

    Published on

    The military of North Korea said on Monday that its recent blitz of missile tests were drills for “mercilessly” hitting important South Korean and American targets such air bases and operational command systems with a variety of missiles, potentially including nuclear-capable weapons.

    The North’s announcement highlighted its leader Kim Jong Un’s resolve to stand his ground in the face of his adversaries’ efforts to increase their military drills. However, according to some experts, the despot also used their drills as justification to update his nuclear stockpile and give himself more negotiating power with Washington and Seoul in the future.

    In protest of extensive U.S.-South Korean air force drills that the North has portrayed as an invasion rehearsal, North Korea launched dozens of missiles and airplanes toward the sea last week, prompting evacuation alerts in certain South Korean and Japanese locations.

    Officials from the United States and South Korea replied that they will improve their joint training exercises and cautioned the North that the deployment of nuclear weapons would lead to the overthrow of Kim’s regime.

    The General Staff of North Korea’s military declared in a statement released by state media that “The recent corresponding military operations by the Korean People’s Army are a clear answer of (North Korea) that the more persistently the enemies’ provocative military moves continue, the more thoroughly and mercilessly the KPA will counter them.”

    According to the report, the weapons tests involved ground-to-air missiles that were intended to “annihilate” enemy aircraft at various altitudes and distances, missile systems loaded with scattering warheads and underground incursion warheads intended to attack enemy air bases, and strategic cruise missiles which fell in international waters approximately 50 miles off the coast of Ulsan, South Korea.

    The military of the North claimed to have also conducted a significant test of a ballistic missile with a unique operational warhead with the goal of “paralyzing the operation command system of the enemy.”. It’s possible that this refers to a mock electromagnetic pulse attack, but other experts question whether North Korea has acquired the necessary capabilities to launch such an attack.

    Although its main newspaper published a picture of an ICBM-like weapon as one that was used during last week’s testing activities, the military statement didn’t specifically mention a reported launch on Thursday of an intercontinental ballistic missile that was reportedly intended to strike the U.S. mainland.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Some experts say many other North Korean missiles launched last week were short-range nuclear-capable weapons that place key military targets in South Korea, including U.S. military bases there, within striking range.

    Later Monday, South Korea’s military disputed some of the North’s accounts of its missile tests. Spokesman Kim Jun-rak said South Korea didn’t detect the North’s cruise missile launches and that it’s also notable that North Korea didn’t mention what Seoul assessed as an abnormal flight by an ICBM.

    This year’s “Vigilant Storm” drills between the United States and South Korea were the largest ever for the annual fall maneuvers. The drills involved 240 warplanes, including advanced F-35 fighter jets from both countries. The allies were initially supposed to run the drills for five days ending on Friday but extended the training by another day in reaction to the North’s missile tests. CONTINUE READING…
