North Korea says Trump talks a 'load of nonsense,' mulls missile test landing in waters near Guam

By staff

Washington D.C. – According to a report from the Korean Central News Agency, General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) released an August 9 statement condemning U.S. President Trump for letting “out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury,’ failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation.”

The statement also notes, “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him.”

According to the statement, the Korean People’s Army (KPA) is drawing up a plan to simultaneously fire off four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets into the ocean around the U.S.-occupied island of Guam, in order “to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”

The statement continues, “The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA will cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi Prefectures of Japan. They will fly 3356.7 km for 1065 seconds and hit the waters 30 to 40 km away from Guam.”

The leadership of the DPRK is expected to decide on the plan in mid-August.

Meanwhile in the U.S., protests against a war on Korea are being organized in a number of cities.
