A North Korean statement on Tuesday warned of nuclear retaliation towards the United States if the U.S. launches a pre-emptive strike. This news comes as a Navy fleet heads towards the western Pacific.

 

Tension has risen in the Korean peninsula with speculation of forceful action by the United States following its strikes in early April against Syria and amid rumors of a new nuclear test to be conducted by North Korea.

 

North Korea’s official newspaper released a statement that explained they were prepared to respond to any aggression by the United States.

 

An excerpt from the newspaper reads:

“Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S.” 

 

The North Koreans recently held a Supreme People’s Assembly session, one of its two sessions per year in which major appointments are announced and national goals are formulated. Details weren’t fully disclosed but it is reasonable to assume there were conversations and appointments regarding military action and potential war with America.

 

Saturday was the 105th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il Sung, the country’s founding father and grandfather of current ruler, Kim Jong Un and it is also Easter weekend and the North Koreans have a knack for disturbing American holidays. A military parade is expected in the North’s capital, Pyongyang, to mark the day as well as another nuclear test to instill fear into the world.
