North Korea is always releasing flamatory statments but they have ramped up the rhetoric. Basically threatning up with a nuclear weapon.
North Korea says it plans rocket and nuclear tests directly targeting the United States.
"In the new phase of our century-long struggle against the United States, we do not hide the fact that various satellites, long-range missiles that we will continue to launch and high-level nuclear test we will conduct will target our sworn enemy, the United States,
" said a statement Thursday from the North's National Defense Commission.
Earlier this week, the UN Security Council
members unanimously condemned Pyongyang’s rocket launch in December and expanded current sanctions. The US followed up with sanctions of its own yesterday, prompting North Korea to threaten additional rocket launches and nuclear tests against the US
, its “sworn enemy.”
"Sanctions mean a war and a declaration of war against us
,” the North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said today, according to Reuters. "If the puppet group of traitors takes a direct part in the UN 'sanctions,' the DPRK will take strong physical counter-measures against it.”
