N/Korea Threatens To "Sink" Japan, Reduce America To "Ashes And Darkness"
North Korea has lots of axe to grind with America.
On Thursday, a North Korean state agency threatened to use nuclear weapons to “sink” Japan and reduce the United States to “ashes and darkness” for supporting a U.N. Security Council resolution to punish it over its latest nuclear test.
It is the second threat since new sanctions were approved by the United Nations Security Council.
Pyongyang’s Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which handles the North’s external ties and propaganda, also called for the breakup of the Security Council, which it called “a tool of evil” made up of “money-bribed” countries that move at the order of the United States.
“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,” the committee said in a statement carried by the North’s official KCNA news agency.
The 15-member Security Council voted unanimously on a U.S.-drafted resolution and a new round of sanctions on Monday in response to North’s nuclear test.
It banned North Korea’s textile exports that are the second largest only to coal and mineral, and cutting fuel supplies as well.
