North Korea threatened “indiscriminate” nuclear strikes against South Korea and the US mainland, as the two allies prepared to kick off large-scale joint military drills on Monday.

The threat to carry out what it described as a “pre-emptive nuclear strike of justice” was made in a statement by the North’s powerful National Defence Commission, citing the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army (KPA).

    what north korea’s sabre-rattling lacks in credibility, it more than makes up for with its colourful language. usually, these outbursts are for effect, and result in “payoffs” from the united states.

    it’s disappointing, however, to note the non-reaction from washington. barack hussein obama, nobel peace prize notwithstanding, is not rushing to make peace between north and south korea the way he did with israel and the arabs. he is not pressuring south korea to make territorial concessions, or other “goodwill gestures”, despite having enormous leverage with seoul, in the form of america’s troops deployed there, and he is not using his brilliant strategy of “engagement” to negotiate an end to north korea’s nuclear weapons programme, as he did with iran. nor has he made an arrangement with china to get rid of this mutual embarrassment named kim jong-un.

    korean reunification would have been a much more valuable “legacy” for this lame duck potus. which leaves trump to be the un-obama, just as obama was the anti-bush.
