https://kcnawatch.co/news(...)tegic-force-command/quote:Pyongyang, August 15 (KCNA) -- Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the Command of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) on Aug. 14.
He waved back to enthusiastically cheering service members and posed for a picture with them.
He went round historical mementoes and data displayed at the Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism Study Hall.
Going round them, he looked back with deep emotion on the great leadership feats of the brilliant commanders of Mt. Paektu, recorded on every page of the history of the KPA Strategic Force displaying its might with the strength unprecedented in the world as a powerful strike service, symbolic of the dignity and power of Korea.
Then he listened to General Kim Rak Gyom's decision on the Strategic Force's plan for an enveloping fire at Guam at the command post.
He examined the plan for a long time and discussed it with the commanding officers in real earnest.
He praised the KPA Strategic Force for drawing up a close and careful plan as planned and intended by the Party and examined the firing preparations for power demonstration.
After listening to the commander of the Strategic Force that it is waiting for the order of the Party Central Committee after rounding off the preparations for the enveloping fire at Guam, he said with great satisfaction that the spirit of Hwasong artillerymen is very high and he was freshly determined, seeing by himself the combat preparedness and the sky-high spirit of the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit.
He said that the U.S. imperialists caught the noose around their necks due to their reckless military confrontation racket, adding that he would watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees spending a hard time of every minute of their miserable lot.
He said that he wants to advise the U.S., which is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula into the touch-and-go situation, running helter-skelter, to take into full account gains and losses with clear head whether the prevailing situation is more unfavorable for any party.
In order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the U.S. to make a proper option first and show it through action, as it committed provocations after introducing huge nuclear strategic equipment into the vicinity of the peninsula, he said, adding that the U.S. should stop at once arrogant provocations against the DPRK and unilateral demands and not provoke it any longer.
He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared, warning the U.S. that it should think reasonably and judge properly not to suffer shame that it is hit by the DPRK again.
He said that if the planned fire of power demonstration is carried out as the U.S. is going more reckless, it will be the most delightful historic moment when the Hwasong artillerymen will wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks, underlining the need to be always ready for launching to go into action anytime once our Party decides.
Looking round a military training school and gymnasium, he called for firmly establishing Juche in education and steadily improving the quality of military training and thus preparing all the artillerymen of the large combined units to be fighters capable of waging campaign of brains, who perfectly mastered the modern military science and technology, the enemy's changed war methods and Korean-style war methods against them.
He underscored the need to certainly establish the system of reeducating commanding officers and technicians of the Strategic Force in line with the modernization and upgrading of ballistic rockets.
Going round the supply service facilities of the large combined unit including the dining hall of sub-unit, he took warm care of the solders' life as their real father would do.
He enjoyed a performance given by the art squad of the large combined unit at the solders hall.
He expressed satisfaction over the good performance given by members of the art squad through numbers vividly representing the operational mission and features of the Strategic Force and desire, thoughts and feelings of the Hwasong artillerymen, and gave precious teachings for performance.
The Strategic Force has a very important position and duty in carrying out the strategic plans of the Workers' Party of Korea, he said, stressing the need for the Strategic Force to firmly establish the monolithic leadership system, command and management system of the Supreme Commander over the nuclear force and further complete the Juche-oriented rocket strike methods.
Giving teachings of great trust that he remains confident thanks to the KPA Strategic Force, reliable treasured sword guaranteeing the everlasting future of the country and nation, he expressed expectation and belief that all the officers and men of the Strategic Force would bring about a fresh turn in rounding off combat preparations, bearing in mind the important mission they have assumed before the Party, the country and the people.
The officers and men of the KPA Strategic Force, who received great trust from him, were firmly determined to score the final victory in the standoff with the U.S. by scorching with super strong strike the targets in south Korea, Japan, operational area in the Pacific and the U.S. mainland, flying the sacred red flags of the Party and flags of the supreme commander at every matchless launching pad once he gives an order.
Accompanying him were KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the C.C., the Workers' Party of Korea.
Valt te verwachten inderdaad. Ze kunnen niet meer op de VS blijven rekenen als de prijs voor de VS gruwelijk hoog wordt (i.e. kernwapen die de US mainland kan bereiken).quote:

bron: De Standaardquote:Oekraïne, bondgenoot van de VS, ontkent in alle toonaarden en bestempelt de berichtgeving als een ‘door de Russische geheime diensten opgezette anti-Oekraïense campagne’. Niet Kiev levert technologie aan Pyongyang, maar Moskou, wist secretaris Oleksandr Toerchinov van de Nationale Veiligheids- en Defensieraad.
Volgens de Amerikaanse krant begon het staatsbedrijf Joezjmasj met het leveren van motoren voor raketten, omdat de onderneming door het Maidan-protest van drie jaar geleden in zwaar weer was terechtgekomen wegens het wegvallen van bestelling voor de Russische nucleaire vloot. De motoren zouden afkomstig zijn uit een oude rakettenfabriek van de USSR in de Oekraïense stad Dnipro (het vroegere Dnjepropetrovsk).
‘Experts geloven dat het (Joezjmasj) de meest waarschijnlijke bron is voor de motoren’ die in juli gebruikt werden voor het aandrijven van de twee intercontinentale ballistische raketten die in juli getest werden door Noord-Korea, zo schrijft New York Times. Het waren die tests die voor het eerst duidelijk maakten dat Noord-Korea over langeafstandsraketten beschikt die in theorie in staat zijn om Amerikaanse steden te bereiken.
Ook Joezjmasj ontkende maandag het bericht. Het staatsbedrijf stelt dat het ‘nooit een link had met Noord-Koreaanse raketprogramma’s’.

North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, has urged Washington to make the “right choice” and avert any confrontation after he was briefed on the plans of an “enveloping” strike on the US territory of Guam. The Pentagon meanwhile warned that any strike against the US could “very quickly” escalate into war.
North Korean General Kim Rak-gyom briefed Kim on the Strategic Force’s plan for an “enveloping fire at Guam at the command post.”
After studying the plan “for a long time” and having “discussed it” with commanding officers, the North Korean leader ordered the army to be fire-ready should he and the ruling party make the decision to further demonstrate his country’s military power.
At the same time, though, Kim urged the US leadership to pursue de-escalation efforts in the ongoing tensions.
“The United States, which was the first to bring numerous strategic nuclear equipment near us, should first make the right decision and show through actions if they wish to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula and prevent a dangerous military clash,” Kim was cited as saying in a report by state news outlet, KCNA.
During Kim's visit to the Command of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA), the North Korean leader further urged the US to stop its “arrogant provocations against the DPRK,” including making “unilateral demands.”
Tensions between the US and North Korea soared to new heights last week, following a series of Donald Trump comments in which he threatened to unleash “fire and fury” if Pyongyang continued to threaten the US with nuclear weapons.
On Monday, the Pentagon made clear that a Pyongyang missile fired at the US would be considered a declaration of war.
“If they fire at the United States, it could escalate into a war very quickly,” Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters. He added, however, that if the projectile does not pose any immediate threat it would be up to politicians to decide what to do next.
“War is up to the president, and perhaps up to Congress,” Mattis said. “The bottom line is we will defend the country from attack.”
Stressing that US military would know the trajectory of a missile “within moments,” Mattis promised take out any missile that is headed towards Guam.
Prior to Mattis' statement, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Washington is ready to use the "full range" of its capabilities if provoked by North Korea.
Dunford is currently on a diplomatic mission to Asia to muster support for American actions against North Korea. On Monday, the General landed in China after visiting South Korea.
China and Russia have repeatedly called on both Washington and Pyongyang to come to the negotiating table to defuse the rapidly escalating tensions. Chinese President Xi Jinping called Trump Saturday to urge restraint regarding the North Korean crisis, advising both the US and N. Korea to avoid words or actions that could worsen the situation.
On Monday, the Russian foreign ministry, through its spokeswoman, once again urged all parties to avoid belligerent rhetoric which could lead to a nuclear war.
"We have repeatedly said that the situation is on edge. But despite this, we hear both the rhetoric of Pyongyang and the statements coming every day from Washington. The paradox is that they are identical. It is an open threat of use of force from both sides," Maria Zakharova said in an interview with a Latvian radio station.
She warned of the horrors of nuclear confrontation and the consequences it will have on the entire world.
"If people in 2017 do not understand what the threat of nuclear weapons is, that it is a threat to the entire world, then what are we talking about?" she asked, according to Sputnik.
Zakharova reiterated that the Russian-Chinese "double freeze" initiative, already rejected by Washington, could have been a way out of the crisis. The plan envisioned a simultaneous end to North Korea’s missile tests and a suspension of US-South Korean military drills.
Dat is al jaren zo.... en ook nu zal noordkorea weer ff een stap terug doen. Het kalmeert weer en see ya all back in 2018 en 2019.quote:Op dinsdag 15 augustus 2017 06:08 schreef Eyjafjallajoekull het volgende:
Volgens mij is dit allemaal tijd rekken door Noord-Korea. Iedereen is nu zo gefocust op het plan van die raketten naar Guam, dat als ze dat niet doen het als een overwinning wordt gezien in de VS maar intussen stoomt Kim lekker verder natuurlijk.
In feite wint Noord-Korea elke ronde dat er niets gedaan wordt.
Zo voorspelbaar ook eigenlijk hèquote:
