North Korea says a new nuclear test will be part of fight against U.S.

By K.J. Kwon and Jethro Mullen

North Korea said Thursday that it plans to carry out a new nuclear test and further long-range rocket launches, all of which it said are a part of a new phase of confrontation with the United States.

The North's National Defense Commission said the moves would feed into an "upcoming all-out action" that would target the United States, "the sworn enemy of the Korean people."

Carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency, the defense commission statement followed a United Nations Security Council resolution on Tuesday that condemned North Korea's recent rocket launch and expanded existing sanctions.

    Stop dreaming about Pentagon, they have more "Korean-Spyies" in there, that work for secret Korean government, not US government. Neither North, nor South Koreans – are not trustworthy.

    North Korea is acting like a cranky child. America should respond to that in a way a parent would report to a cranky, defiant child: Punish it.

      North Korea seems acting like the Canadian who went on shooting rampage in the Philippines before killing himself, and you must be acting like the people he killed.

    I think we should conduct B2 exercise flights over NK and "accidentally" drop a 50 mega ton.

      Yeah . . . I have to admit it . . . these independent N. Koreans do scare me since they are not falling in step with our plans to rule the world from tel-aviv. North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and Ecuador are evil since they oppose us.

    If they stand another rocket up, we should take it out with a cruise missle.

      But when we're ready, we're gong to destroy Korea like we done to Libya and what we are doing to Syria. We don't mess around . . . we zine-0-ists play to win and since we have you dummy Americans fighting and dying for us and doing our bidding . . .it won't be too long before we start a war with N. Korea. Yeah, N. Koreans are tough, but we'll get them, just so long as the Chinese stay of it.

    Please, pay no attention to NK! With all the other problems in the world NK simply feels ignored and neglected, What they really want is another "deal" to get ship loads of free food and fuel (oil based).
    Stop treating NK as some rising threat, they aren't.
    NK is China's "problem child", force China to stop providing nuclear and rocket technology and parts! NK is the last remaning element of the hard line Chinese communistic "dream". China keeps NK "on stage", simply to keep their dream alive by proxy.

      China tentatively supports NK only as a buffer to the south and American influence. And of course, they don't want the entire population of NK fleeing into China should the NK government fail!

    NK is an 1d10t country... Like a spoiled 2 yr old constantly wanting attention. The US does not care about NK...NK is a nothing country... I wish they would grow up and stop acting like f00ls.
