Little Rocket Man and his Korean Central News Agency lackeys threatened to bring “nuclear clouds” to Japan and mocked Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for acting like a “headless chicken” at the United Nations General Assembly because the Japanese leader urged U.N. members to attempt to force North Korea to end its nuclear and missile programs.
In response, the Pyongyang powers-that-be, or, in other words, Kim Jong-Un, accused Japan of inciting tension in the Korean peninsula, and characterized Abe’s remarks as a “suicidal deed” that will end with a nuclear attack to sink the island.
“Japan's such rackets inciting the tension of the Korean peninsula is a suicidal deed that will bring nuclear clouds to the Japanese archipelago,” read a statement from the KCNA. “No one knows when the touch-and-go situation will lead to a nuclear war, but if so, the Japanese archipelago will be engulfed in flames in a moment. This is too self-evident." Too crazy.
North Korea has already fired two missiles over Japan in the last few months, threatened to “sink” Japan, and said the nation could be “the first victim of nuclear disaster in the world.” Earth to the Hermit Kingdom: They already were.
"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us," KCNA said in another message. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us? That’s a tad arrogant and dismissive. A top government spokesman for Japan responded to the threat by calling it outrageous and provocative. Sorry, but that’s not going to cut it.
Kim Jong-Un and the KCNA also vowed to reduce the United States to “ashes and darkness.” Do his remarks constitute a “suicidal deed?”
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed there were still “lines of communication” open to Pyongyang, whereas President Trump urged Tillerson to “save [his] energy” because he was simply “wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man.”
A classic instance of “good cop, bad cop.”
Disaster, North Korea? Kim Jong-Un and his Hermit Kingdom are “no longer needed to exist near” South Korea and Japan. That’s now “too self-evident.”
“Ashes and darkness?” A fitting description of North Korea now.
