On Tuesday North Korea suggested it had the ability to launch a pre-emptive attack on the United States.
" As we declared , our strong revolutionary might put in place all measures to counter possible U.S. pre-emptive strikes," said the North Korean spokesman. " Pre-emptive strike is not the monopoly of the United States."
" We made nuclear weapons because of a nuclear threat from the United States. We have our traditional way of directly tackling the pressure and we will take this kind of way to the United States."
I do believe that North Korea was the one who attacked the south and the U.S., but I guess they will believe whatever they want to.
The North Korean spokesman also disputed last week's U.S. national security report that said, among other things, that North Korea poised a serious nuclear proliferation challenge.
" In a word, it is a robbery-like declaration of war", the spokesman said. " Through this document the Bush administration declared to the world that it is a group of war fanatics."
This from a country that can't even admit it started the Korean war.
The spokesman went on to say, " we have built nuclear weapons for no other purpose than to counter U.S. nuclear threats." These kind of comments are very telling, they show us very clearly the type of people we are up against and who they are. We will deal with this impending threat the way the United States always has, with great courage, honor, and personal sacrifice. We will not be intimidated bye the likes of these people.
