At the party meeting, Kim called South Korea “a hemiplegic malformation and colonial subordinate state” whose society is “tainted by Yankee culture.”

The Best Korea has all the Best insults.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his military should “thoroughly annihilate” the United States and South Korea if provoked, state media reported Monday,

How? Make a movie and use artistic license to show NK victorious over the worlds strongest military and South Korea? Because there is no way for North Korea to defeat America, let alone annihilate it.

after he vowed to boost national defense to cope with what he called an unprecedented U.S.-led confrontation.

Is this guy high or what? There is no confrontation at all. This is purely his imagination alone. The US is much to busy assisting Ukraine, keeping China from taking Taiwan, worrying about its image after supporting Israel who now is conducting open genocide against Palestinians in Gaza, and a host of other smaller concerns no less worrying. NK is not on the radar, even though its missile launches are. NK ramping up rhetoric to take view and pressure off Russia. Plain and simple deception to help his newest buddy Putin who intends on sharing better technology and new fighter jets as soon as the war with Ukraine is over.

Kim is in fantasy land, and is as dangerous and unstable as ever.

Kim is in fantasy land, and is as dangerous and unstable as ever.

Yes, he is deranged and the problem is that he believes in what he says and, having spent so much time and money developing his nuclear weapons, he wants to see them fly and can't / won't comprehend the consequences.

The NK government needs to be decapitated and soon before it's too late.

Yes, Kim is in fantasy land. And one day, reality is going to come up and bonk him so hard on the nose he won't know what hit him.

Should is not the same as Will, Someone needs a new speech writer as well as a dietician.

Dear Mr. Kim,

We don’t necessarily want to transform your “country” into a parking lot or into a sheet of the smoothest, most decorative glass you could possibly imagine, but please be aware that we can - and will - regretfully do so, if required.

Sincerely,

Your pals in the civilized world.

Dictators inevitably slide into self-delusion and megalomania. Such is clearly the case with the Kim family.

He, his dad, and his grandad have been saying the same things for many decades. The best thing for media outlets would be to ignore him. Don't publish this nonsense, and give a sense of importance.

It depends. If he keeps their efforts non-nuclear and gains the full backing of Russia and China, millions of people will die. That is certain. If NK starts anything, I can see a few thousand cruise missiles headed towards all their military installations trying to remove all nuclear rocket capabilities from his control, perhaps with China's blessing.

If it goes nuclear. The entire region will become useless for a few hundred years. Nobody wants that.

Our best hope if for cooler heads to remove fearless leader and align with the most prosperous SK. Wouldn't that be great? That's my hope for the NK people. Peace and reunification in 2024.

The only way to kill the rhetoric is to get rid of the pot belly pig and his regime.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Aside from his usual ‘we will destroy if provoked’ rhetoric (I understand the spray-zone for his spittle makes those sitting in the front row wear plastic waterproofs) , we note that his speech also contained some real loss-of-reality claims: that he made “eye-opening” economic achievements in fulfilling or exceeding quotas in farming, housing construction and fisheries.

Translated, he means that food crops, while exceeding last years yields (due to better weather), are still almost a metric ton below the minimum needed to feed his unfortunate people. That average housing in his country now means fewer than eighteen family / extended family crammed into a space meant for a family of four (prisons and work camps still popping up everywhere). And that more fishing boats are now actually able to leave harbor, without sinking first on the way out.

In other words? The usual tired screams from The Glorious Eater.

Yeah, ok there, Fatso.

What a joke.

Such big talk coming from Kim. Is he yearning for more news coverage from the international press or trying to divert his peoples' attention from their perpetual starvation and suffering? Maybe both?

Wet dream of fatty Kim..

Same for US..

Both want to evaporate each other..

Both are the same..

Kim had better watch out for his words before the U.S. annihilates North Korea.

Judging by the USA military performance since Vietnam, a lost to the the North Viet Com. With attack on their own shores of 9/11 a Lost in Iraq and a lost to Afghanistan Taliban and lost in Syria and a lost in Ukraine. And now coping flogging from Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis. I say Kim would give the USA another lost. I didn't,t know what is there problem is but the USA have all the high tech equipment but stuff all to show for it. I am just looking from the outside looking in, where others have their judgment fog by propaganda and can not see the wood from the forest.

You forgot saving a USA military from certain defeat to a cease fire in NK. Without the Aussie warrior saving the USA military from themselves and from the old senile Generals and their inadequate planing. Someone has to overcome the USA military poor strategies and save their rear end. Like it a certain you have ask the Aussie for help. With the USA planing all the stupid geopolitical move that you have to rely on other better preforming Militaries to save yourself from yourselves. Ukraine brilliant move, Gaza brilliant move. I say point proven.

Surprisingly, they love a lot of our equipment since it’s top-notch. Definitely not made in China and won’t break.

You are not looking from the outside looking in. Your country was there for all of the US's victories and defeats.

I'm sure Kim is absolutely fuming at CNN for mispelling "preparations". lol
