Thousands of North Korea’s top military officials march in support of Kim Jong-un as Pyongyang warns it could ‘reduce the U.S. mainland to ashes at any moment’

Thousands of North Korea’s top military officers marched through Pyongyang, showing support for their dictator Kim Jong-un, as the country issued more threats against the United States.

This, just days after tens of thousands of North Korean civilians staged a similar rally in the city. Friday morning, Pyongyang’s KCNA agency warned the U.S.:

“It is a ‘tragedy that the reckless and hysteric behaviors may reduce the U.S. mainland to ashes any moment.”

The statement said it was the country’s ‘steadfast will…

“To put an end to the hostile moves of the U.S., who has imposed misfortunes and sufferings upon the Korean people for over half a century, and win the final victory in the stand-off with imperialism and the U.S. The U.S. and its vassal forces will dearly pay for the harshest sanctions and pressure and reckless military provocations against the DPRK.”

This show of defiance, after Washington warned North Korea earlier in the week it faced ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ if it continued to threaten the US with its missile and nuclear programs.

That then prompted the defiant Pyongyang to threaten a missile attack on Guam, a tiny U.S. territory in the Pacific that is home to major U.S. air and naval facilities.

China has been accused by the U.S. for not doing enough to rein in North Korea, it’s longtime ally. China fought alongside the North in the 1950-1953 Korean War, and the two nations signed a mutual defence pact in 1961. However, the Global Times suggests Beijing should stay on the sidelines if Pyongyang launches the first salvo in a new conflict with the United States. The editorial saying:

“China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral. If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.”
