U.S. Defense officials: North Korean threats are 'bellicose rhetoric'

Recommended Posts

Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea's threatening rhetoric has reached a fever pitch, but the Pentagon and the South Korean government have said it's nothing new.

"We have no indications at this point that it's anything more than warmongering rhetoric," a senior Washington Defense official said late Friday.

The official was not authorized to speak to the media and asked not to be named.

IMO, Kim Jong Um reminds me of the Jersey Shore cast in a way. He loves to start trouble with people just to prove he's a "tough guy."

Alternative news sources in Europe reports that this declaration of war on South Korea is actually based on an apparent mistranslation. It was cited that Russian military forces did not note any strategic changes in movement of troops or weapons indicative of an actual attack on South Korea. Keep in mind also that North and South Korea technically are still at war to begin with as no peacetime treaty was ever signed since the Korean War came to a hiatus in 1953. 

 

However something is indeed going on. On March 11th the US deployed two nuclear warhead equipped B-2 Stealth Bombers (!!!) over the South Korean peninsula which prompted a response from North Korea by it's positioning of it's surface to air missile defenses with nuclear warheads aimed at targets at South Korea. But the declaration of war,in itself, this time, may again be based on a mistranslation that the US media is not exactly bringing to light here. It's always good to read between the lines sometimes and compare media sources. If this is true consider yourselves lucky, because I would imagine we would not be having too much fun when the sparks start to fiy with North Korea when at the same time Israel is already making pre-emptive plans to hit Iran with nukes, first strike, as we speak. Which is one of the major reasons why the US military had shifted to Asia. It's a militaristic move in anticipation of possible serious conflicts, if not with N Korea or with the China Sea dispute between China and Japan, then because of the situation with Israel and Iran.

 

So even as this declaration may be a mistranslation and missing of the mark sort of speak in communication here, think of why the US has been began it's redeployment of troops from Afghanistan to East Asia. Shit just got real and we don't even know it yet. On top of that, again, the continued stalemate in the China Sea between China's PLA and Japan's JSDF forces, as well as ongoing tensions between guerrilla forces and governmental forces occurring in countries in Southeast Asia for reasons unrelated to what's happening on the grand world stage. 

 

There's many reasons why President Obama made that directive to shift their military resources to Asia from the Middle east which is ongoing. This makes for a dangerous situation, and there's no bullshit conspiratorial theory in that. My two cents.

The news receive is highly filtered and likely censored to a high degree. I'd try to do "error correction" with disparate news sources and even underground forums.
