HORRIFIC VIDEO: North Korea Leader Inspecting Military Drills Aimed at Seoul

Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:09:37

North Korea’s state media on Sunday (March 27) aired a video of its leader Kim Jong Un inspecting military drills which are aimed at South Korea’s capital Seoul.

In the video, aired by the North’s state-run television KRT, Kim was seen looking through binoculars to watch the large-scale striking drill of the Korean People’s Army (KPA).

KRT said the drill was the North’s largest ever exercise of long-range artillery training, with a simulated attack on South Korea’s presidential and government offices.

Kim ordered his military to be on high alert so that it may mercilessly pound the reactionary ruling machines in Seoul, the cesspool of evils, and advance to accomplish the historic cause of national reunification, once it receives an order for attack, KRT added.

KRT said the drill was staged on Thursday (March 24), however, it did not specify the date location of the drills.

Isolated North Korea is renowned for its sabre-rattling, and often makes threats of attack and even annihilation against South Korea and the United States.

However, its tone has been especially belligerent in recent weeks and personally aimed at South Korean President Park Geun-hye following her warnings of regime collapse in Pyongyang after it conducted a nuclear test and rocket launch earlier this year.

Tensions have been high on the Korean peninsula since the North conducted a nuclear test in January and a long-range rocket launch in February, which prompted new sanctions earlier this month by the United Nations Security Council. Annual U.S.-South Korea military exercises, which are ongoing, have added to the jitters, Reuters reported.
