A North Korea Nuclear Strikes Against US Vowed March 26th, 2010

A North Korea Nuclear Strikes Against US Vowed. The military in communist North Korea warned South Korea and the US that they would perform “unprecedented nuclear strikes.” Such threats are common from the country, and as such the US and South Korean officials have reacted calmly.

They’ve reached out to Pyongyang to commit to international negotiations that would end its nuclear program. However, the country is believed to already have enough weaponized plutonium for at least six atomic bombs.

Tighter sanctions for the country came about last year after the country’s second nuclear test. Their weapons program is the source of much political back-and-forth between the US, South Korea, and North Korea.

Kim Jong Il is the leader of the country, and there is word that he is ill, and could die within three years. The US and their allies fear that if the leader were to die, a political struggle would develop which could trigger an even increased threat of nuclear attacks against the South and the US.

North Korea also vowed to strike the US and South if they engaged in military exercises as planned earlier this year. The US and South Korea continued their war games as planned with no interference from the North Korean military. link
