North Korea has doubled down on its threat to annihilate the US, pledging to use its young people to “blow the US from this planet”.
The country’s official Korean Central News Agency released a chilling new piece of propaganda, reporting on a mass rally held in Pyongyang’s Kim Il‑sung Square.
Pyongyang City Youth League Committee first secretary Mun Chol vowed during the rally that “the young people in the country would become five million human bullets and bombs and nuclear warheads to blow the US from this planet”.
Participants at a rally held signs bearing slogans such as:
“Strike the United States with nuclear thunderbolt, Those who touch us will not escape death, A revenge attack of annihilation and Let’s become bullets and bombs devotedly defending respected Supreme Leader Comrade Kim Jong‑un”
Workers’ Party of Korea member Kim Ki‑nam also spoke at the rally, condemning the “shameless gangster‑like” US and its allies for “cooking up” sanctions on the nation via the United Nations and saying it was “frightened at the might” of North Korea’s nuclear power.
He said the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s access to the strongest nukes and rockets is a legitimate step to defend the destiny of the country and nation, and ensure the right to independent development.
Kim adds the US had falsely styled itself as the only superpower in the world and suggested that efforts to pressure it not to develop weapons would only encourage it further.
Kim’s comments also contained an implicit threat towards US allies, such as Australia.
He said the neighbouring countries which blindly follow the US as its puppets will never be able to evade the responsibility for having coiled up the situation on the Korean Peninsula and endangered peace and security in the region.
Despite the sensational language, experts have cautioned against buying into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s propaganda.
