North Korea threatens terrorism to demolish South Korea gov’t in 4 minutes or less

posted at 2:01 pm on April 23, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Last week, we wondered how newly-installed Dear Leader Kim Jong-un would deal with the embarrassing spectacle of the disintegration of their ICBM after just 90 seconds in flight.  The answer?  Threaten to reduce the government in Seoul to “ashes” in less than four minutes — by “unprecedented peculiar means“:

North Korea regularly criticizes Seoul and just last week renewed its promise to wage a “sacred war,” saying South Korean PresidentLee Myung-bak had insulted the North’s April 15 celebrations of the birth centennial of national founder Kim Il Sung.

But Monday’s military statement, which vowed actions of “unprecedented peculiar means,” was unusual in promising something soon and describing a specific length of time.

The threat follows U.N. condemnation of North Korea’s launch of a long-range rocket that exploded shortly after liftoff April 13. Washington, Seoul and others called the launch a cover for testing long-range missile technology. Pyongyang said the launch was meant to put a satellite into orbit.

The North’s special actions “will reduce all the rat-like groups and the bases for provocations to ashes in three or four minutes, (or) in much shorter time, by unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style,” according to the statement by the special operation action group of the Korean People’s Army’s Supreme Command.

Clearly, Pyongyang is looking to distract its subjects from the military failure earlier this month.  However, this threat goes beyond their normal bluster, as the AP notes above.  Threats from the DPRK usually use more general terminology, and especially timeframes, as the Kim regimes attempt to force some concessions from their opponents in the rational world.

In this case, I’d guess that the issue is starvation.  Lee Myung-bak cut off food aid from the South in 2008 that didn’t get tied to concessions from Pyongyang, and now the latest missile test has ended the food shipments from the US as well.  The military needs that food aid to keep the rank and file from rebelling, let alone the unfortunate people of the DPRK.  Kim can’t afford to let the army starve, and he can’t domestically produce the food necessary to keep it from happening.  He needs that food aid to resume in order to keep his new position as hereditary dictator.

If the DPRK seriously tries terrorist attacks in Seoul, however, starvation will be the least of their concerns.  This could become a shooting war again, and it will take a mighty careful balance to keep it from expanding to China, Japan, and Russia all over again.  Right now it looks like bluster, especially since Pyongyang hasn’t moved any troops to the border after their announcement, but the threat of terrorist attacks won’t be taken lightly by Seoul or the US.

The ‘shooting war’ would last all of about 10 minutes, IF Barry had the balls.

As for China and Russia; they’ve got nothing to gain and would stand on the sidelines. Hell, China would be rushing troops to their common border just to keep starving NK’s OUT. Japan has enough problems right now, and would defer to OUR defending them against any attacks.

The thing that worries me about the NORKS is the whole Kamikaze phenomenon in that part of the world. If Kim sees that it’s going to be all over in a couple of years… why not just burn that part of the world down? Sure, NK wouldn’t win a war…. but if they slaughtered a few million people on the way out and erased North Korea from the map–why the heck not? From the mindset of the evil madmen bit… if your country is toast, take out everyone else too.

Seoul is only what, 15 miles from the border? Within artillery range?

If the history of that conflict has made anything clear, it’s that the DPRK literally can get away with murder. Why was US food aid even on the table after they attacked that South Korean ship? Every time they “act out”, everyone issues the obligatory condemnation along with the requisite carrot. They know this, and they know there will be no real consequences for their actions, which is why they continue to perpetuate this cycle.

“unprecedented peculiar means,” that, “will reduce all the rat-like groups and the bases for provocations to ashes in three or four minutes….”


That sounds awfully specific to me. I’d say they are threatening to use some weapon of mass destruction. On the other hand, it could be as low-tech as having a couple of dozen “tourists” set fire to their hotel rooms simultaneously. (The Confederacy tried that against New York during the Civil War.)

NotCoach on April 23, 2012 at 2:29 PM

North Korea’s missiles may not work, but their artillery works just fine. It’s been dug in over the decades, and would devastate Seoul before anybody could take it out. A shooting war may be in our future, I don’t know, but don’t kid yourself that South Korea would necessarily emerge unscathed.

Well, the North Korean official website is pretty snazzy and they even have a website for neat stuff like “Propoganda No. 7 iPad Covers,” I kid you not, complete with a “Where’s My Stuff?” customer service link. (Not sure what happens if you actually click on it to complain; you might wake up in a North Korean concentration camp).

We’re not anymore. But S. Korea, the US, and China have been providing food aid ostensibly as a humanitarian gesture; however, the real reason is that neither China nor S. Korea would be able to handle the waves of starving refugees pouring across the borders from N. Korea if the dam broke. So it’s kind of an insurance policy.

I understand that the Kim’s only allow it because of famine, but it does mean that there are many times more North Koreans who’ve witnessed first hand what at least a sliver of economic freedom looks like.

Conservative4Ever on April 23, 2012 at 4:09 PM

When we decide to get serious about the PRK, we can deal with the problem rather quickly. But it involves being completely realistic and ruthless in pursuing our interests.

First it must be recognized that ONLY China has the power to force the Norks to do anything. The Chinese are the major and almost only trading partner and source for hard currency. If they decide to crack down on the nonsense, it stops. Cold. They don’t because they enjoy the distraction it provides for us, Japan, and ROK. They have no motivation to call off their dog.

BUT if we announced serious talks with ROK and Japan about basing our nukes there and helping them with their own programs, the Chinese would sit up and take notice right away. And if the price of stopping that deployment was toppling the Kim regime, it would be done.

Kim “Kid Cream Puff” Young-un cannot possibly be in control there. Western news sources should not acknowledge him and should refuse to publish any news about the Norks until they open up.

Is there some marker in the chromosomes that the military in Iran and No. Koreans share?

It has to be something like a “goofy as shyte gene” that gets triggered to make them say stupid crap like this.

One minute they’re shutting down the Strait of Hormuz, the next reducing Seoul to ashes.

What good does it do to bluster? If it is really just to keep the peeps in-line they still gotta know the rest of the world sees them as bat shit crazy.
