Former us president criticises bush over north korea war

DONG WANG – North Korea’s foreign minister has compared South Korea’s decision to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense to a colonial power with the brutal “appalling” behaviour of Japan towards Asians during the early years of the Meiji restoration.

Kim Jang Song said the decision to deploy the US-developed Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) was unacceptable and that the country’s “precise plan” was to have the missile defence system in place by the second half of the year.

“South Korea must not take it lightly and be patient,” he said in the state-run media yesterday (Wednesday), saying it had been “forced to make an honest mistake” in deciding to deploy THAAD and “must stop the reckless provocations on the Korean peninsula”.

Mr Kim made the comments after a round of live-fire exercises at the end of last week, with South Korean officials announcing the first deployment of the system.

South Korea began con바카라struction of the system, which will be built in North Korea’s western region of Paju, in November 2012 in an agreement with the US, but the agreement is due to expire next year.

South Korea and the US have been locked in a prolonged nuclear standoff with Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programs, which the North sees as an existential th더킹카지노reat to its existence.

Since the beginning of the year, the North’s missile and nuclear weapons activities have increased substantially with more intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) test launches and a second nuclear test of a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM).

“The South Korea-US military joint exercise will have a significant impact on North Korea’s military readiness,” he said, adding “the United States is ready to punish South Korea for such irresponsible provocations, but [has] no other choice”.

Mr Kim also dismissed Seoul’s call for dialogue and promised바카라 to make Pyongyang pay for its “crimes”.

The minister said the North’s “savage war with South Korea has left us with no other choice but to respond to [South Korea’s] aggression in the same way”, while the deployment of THAAD would only be a “disaster” for the impoverished North.

On Monday, North Korea said the US and South Korea should pull down their “barbaric” structures and “totally destroy” them if they attacked the Pyongyang.

North Korea previously ordered a number of buildings to be destroyed by it
