North Korea Accuses Obama Of Nuclear War Plot, Threaten to Harm U.S. If Attacked

Remember when Joe Biden promised the world would test Obama? Well, here it comes. The world is becoming a very scary dangerous place and The President continues to vote "present". While he continues to try to push his radical, socialist domestic agenda, the world is erupting into violence everywhere from Iran to North Korea and our President is sitting back and watching.

We can only hope that he or his advisers wake up to reality and begin to address the real issues of the world of 2009.

Breitbart reports:

North Korea has accused US President Barack Obama of plotting a nuclear war on the communist nation by reaffirming a US assurance of security for South Korea, the North's state media said.

In a first official response to last week's US-South Korean summit, the state-run weekly Tongil Sinbo said in its Saturday edition Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak "are trying to ignite a nuclear war".

"The US-touted provision of 'extended deterrence, including a nuclear umbrella' (for South Korea) is nothing but 'a nuclear war plan,'" Tongil Sinbo said.

It said it wasn't a coincidence that the United States has brought "nuclear equipment into South Korea and its surroundings and staged massive war drills every day to look for a chance to invade North Korea."

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - President Barack Obama assured Americans in an interview broadcast Monday that the U.S. is prepared for any move North Korea might make, amid reports that Pyongyang is planning a long-range missile test to follow up its provocative nuclear test last month.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has ordered additional protection for Hawaii as a precaution, though experts say North Korea doesn't yet have a ballistic missile that can reach Hawaii and has not mastered mounting a nuclear bomb on a long-range missile.

Still, North Korea declared itself a "proud nuclear power" and warned it will strike if provoked.

"It would be a grave mistake for the U.S. to think it can remain unhurt if it ignites the fuse of war on the Korean peninsula," the country's main Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary.

The U.S., which has 28,500 troops in South Korea, has said it has no such intentions.

Obama assured Americans that "this administration—and our military—is fully prepared for any contingencies." His interview with CBS News' "The Early Show" was taped Friday for broadcast Monday.

  1. It isn't fair if the U.S. tries to shoot down NK's missiles if they decide to shoot at someone else. After all, they now have nukes so they should be allowed to force other countries to do as ordered. If the U.S. won't allow it, then it just isn't fair!

    I'm not too worried about their theats against the U.S. either. Even though they have no real worries about any of their people, there is always the chance that the ruler or his family might be under our return fire.
