3.5mn N.Koreans sign up to fight against US

3.5mn N.Koreans sign up to fight against US”

In August 2015, 1 million North Koreans offered to enlist or re-enlist in the army when a mine exploded in the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas, raising additional tensions. In North Hwanghae Province, 89,000 young men pleaded to enlist or reenlist on August 9 alone.

"In Daedong County of South Pyongan Province, more than 20,000 students, party members and labourers filed enlistment or reenlistment requests".

North Korean state-media on Wednesday showed images of a mobilisation of tens of thousands of citizens parading through Kim Il-sung square in Pyongyang carrying banners in defence of leader Kim Jong-un and denouncing the latest United Nations sanctions to punish the regime for its missile launches. North Korea has previously mobilized large crowds to show its resolve when tensions escalate. Russia, however, said that the missiles were intermediate range.

Thousands of workers gathered in the capital Pyongyang in protest and in defiance of Donald Trump's warning of "fire and fury".

The US Army Command plans to erect miles of "Earth Filled Blast Mitigation Barriers" around its military bases in South Korea, shortly after Washington and Pyongyang exchanged a new broadside of mutual accusations. The family reunion project materialized decades later, in a 2000 summit meeting between President Kim Dae-jung and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, who agreed to regularly hold the humanitarian event. U.S. officials then told NBC that Washington has a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers stationed in Guam, should Trump order it.

On Friday, the U.S. president again added fuel to the fire, saying that if Pyongyang "acts unwisely", Washington has military solutions "locked and loaded".

It follows the announcement that North Korea had miniaturised a nuclear warhead capable of reaching the mainland US.

"It's a total mismatch", Ivashov, who now heads the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, said of a possible confrontation between Washington and Pyongyang.

Even though North Korea has more than 10,000 artillery pieces and multiple rocket launchers lined up along the entire length of the demilitarized zone separating it from its southern neighbor, the US, unlike South Korea, has little to worry about, Vladimir Ardayev wrote.

Never before seen pictures of North Korea at war.

Meanwhile, there is a real enemy the USA and its South Korean allies should worry more about than any imaginary missile strikes by Pyongyang - Daesh, which is now spreading its deadly tentacles to Southeast Asia. "The Guam airbase which North Korea is planning to attack is also covered by U.S. anti-missile defense", he said.
