SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) — The North Korean military on Thursday issued a fresh burst of ominous rhetoric, warning that U.S. bases in Guam and Japan are within its “striking range.”

The statement from the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army, carried by the North’s state-run news agency, follows the announcement by the United States this week that its B-52 bombers were making flights over South Korea as part of military exercises.

“The U.S. should not forget that the Anderson Air Force Base on Guam, where the B-52s take off, and naval bases in Japan proper and Okinawa, where nuclear-powered submarines are launched, are within the striking range of the DPRK’s precision strike means,” the North Korean military said Thursday.

    North Korea doesn't realize we have the NRA secret army just itching for a dust-up. Watch what you say you fat little pig!

    According to John Kerry's standards this hostility and hatred for America means that Obama is a failure who by his own policies is creating terrorism. It's all Obama's fault!

    Actually, he's just doing the same crap they've been doing the last 60 years–spend every nickel they get on building up a big army then intimidating the world to get them to send him more under the guise of helping North Korea's starving poor–and thumbing his nose at the US behind Red China. Call his bluff, make him put up or shut up and if he is stupid enough to start something he can't win, finish him! I spent 2 years in S. Korea watching the same kind of silly BS back in the '70's, it hasn't changed a bit.
