North Korean Officer: Military 'on Alert' to Wipe Out U.S. Air Base
A North Korean military officer has threatened to attack a U.S. air base in Guam, according to state-run media.
The United States Military confirmed that a pair of two nuclear enabled stealth U.S. bombers finished a training mission in South Korea. According to the Associated Press, “The U.S. says the B-2 stealth bombers flew from a U.S. air base and dropped munitions on a South Korean island range before returning home.”
In response to the training exercise, a Korean People's Army officer, Pae Kwang Phyo, told the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA):
"Despite our repeated warning, the U.S. imperialist aggressors let their B-52 formation fly again in the sky above South Korea and announced an operational plan targeting the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership.
Gone are the days when the DPRK made verbal exchange with the U.S.
The KPA Strategic Rocket Force has already been on A-class alert to wipe out the U.S. forces and reduce their bases in Guam and other regions to ashes."
KCNA, North Korea’s state run news agency, also spoke to KPA officer Hong Kum Chol, who stated, “The KPA Air Force is put on alert. It will never miss the opportunity to sweep away the Anderson air base in Guam."
On March 20, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un said he would command his military forces to attack American military installations in the Pacific and South Korea if it made "even the slightest move.”
