Shplock is the sound boots make each time you pull a foot free of deep, thick bullshit. It’s what comes immediately to mind reading the latest rhetoric from North Korea.
“An unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North.”
“Intercontinental ballistic missiles and various other missiles, which have already set their striking targets, are now armed with lighter, smaller and diversified nuclear warheads and are placed on a standby status,” Kang said. “When we shell (the missiles), Washington, which is the stronghold of evils, …. will be engulfed in a sea of fire.”
Really? That all sounds like a sea of rotting manure. It’s believed that they do have a growing arsenal of nuclear bombs that are becoming more powerful and sophisticated, and their missile technology is also steadily improving. They may well have a missile capable of reaching our shores. But as soon as they fired off the first one, a rain of nukes would wipe them out, while theirs would be destroyed in flight. They know that just as we do.
The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution in response to this outburst, which adds a new load of sanctions on North Korea, and the resolution was drafted by North Korea’s closest ally, China, along with the U.S. I guess China isn’t real keen on a nuclear war breaking out on it’s doorstep, but I also think that this smells of fish. I believe China could stop N. Korea anytime it wants to.
Earlier this week N. Korea threatened to cancel the 1953 cease-fire that ended the Korean War, and I sure wish they would. All they have to do is start attacking South Korea and then we can go in and end the Kim Dynasty for good.
Meanwhile, can we hang Dennis Rodman for treason now?
