Kim Jong-un Keeps Threatening Preemptive Nuclear Strikes

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has threatened unspecified hostile forces with nuclear strike preemptively, for the second consecutive time within a span of less than one week.

The official [North], Korean Central News Agency quoted Kim saying that the North would continue to develop nuclear weapons in order to “preemptively, thoroughly contain, and frustrate any dangerous attempts or threatening moves including ever-escalating nukes from hostile forces if necessary.” “

He made the remarks while praising top brass for a huge military parade in Pyongyang to mark the 90th anniversary of the army.

“Formidable striking power and overwhelming military power are lifelines that guarantee the security of our state and people and the future of the generations to come,” he added.

Kim made a speech at the parade last week in which he threatened to use nukes “if any forces attempt to violate our fundamental interests.” “

“Fundamental interests” admits of a wide interpretation.
