North Korea Says U.S. Has “Declared War”

The regime claims they may shoot down U.S. bombers – even if they aren’t in North Korea’s airspace.

North Korea’s foreign minister Ri Yong Ho has upped the ante in their rhetorical fight with the U.S., saying that America had “declared war” against the Kim Jong Un regime.

In a recent show of force, the United States flew some B-1 bombers close to the east coast of North Korea, a demonstration of America’s ability to project power in the region.

The foreign minister says he was responding to the following tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump:

Here’s what Ri said during a press conference in New York:

“The whole world should clearly remember it was the U.S. who first declared war on our country. Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country. The question of who won’t be around much longer will be answered then.” 

The U.S. has called North Korea’s claim of a war declaration “absurd.”

Re Trump’s Tweet:
Trump is hostage to hawkish generals running his administration’s geopolitical agenda. Instead of being a peace and stability President, he’s another in a long line of US warrior presidents- At war in multiple theaters, threatening more conflicts, risking possible nuclear confrontation with North Korea, Russia, and China”. – Stephen Lendman, Journalist http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=84190

Tulsi Gabbard, Member of U.S. House of Reps from Hawaii’s 2nd District; U.S. leaders need to understand that Kim Jong Un maintains a tight grip on North Korea’s nuclear weapons as a deterrent against regime change. The Trump Administration would be far more credible in finding a diplomatic solution with North Korea if we weren’t currently waging a regime change war in Syria, and contemplating a regime change war in Iran.
