North Korea’s Kim slams ‘rabid dogs’ after Obama comments

SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said Pyongyang would not sit idly by “with rabid dogs barking” about toppling its socialist system, in apparent reaction to comments by US President Barack Obama that the regime was doomed, state media reported Saturday (Jan 31).

Kim made the remarks while overseeing a joint naval and air force drill simulating an attack on a US carrier strike group off South Korea, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

It did not give details of the venue and date of the war games, which were believed to have taken place on Friday.

“He solemnly declared that we have no willingness to sit any longer with the rabid dogs openly barking that they will bring down by the method of bringing about ‘changes’ the socialist system, the cradle which our people consider dearer than their own lives”, KCNA said. Kim said North Korea was ready to counter “any war including a war by conventional armed forces and a nuclear war”.

In an interview on YouTube from the White House on Jan 22, Obama spoke of the eventual collapse of the North Korean regime, calling it “the most isolated, the most sanctioned, the most cut-off nation on Earth”.

“We will keep on ratcheting the pressure, but part of what’s happening is … the internet over time is going to be penetrating this country,” Obama said. “Over time you will see a regime like this collapse,” he said, adding the US was looking for ways to accelerate the flow of information into the country.

A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman lashed out at his remarks on Sunday, portraying them as “nothing but a poor grumble of a loser”, adding that attempts to topple the regime would only strengthen unity among its people. The North has often used bombastic and sometimes racist rhetoric to slam Obama and other US leaders.

In December its top military body chaired by Kim compared Obama to a “monkey” over his support for the screening of a Hollywood comedy hated by Pyongyang. The Interview – about a fictional plot to assassinate Kim – was released online and in theatres despite devastating cyberattacks on its producer Sony Pictures. Washington blames Pyongyang for the attacks, a charge the North has angrily denied.

For ‘He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil'” 1Peter3:8-12
    Amazing Gordon how everything is aligning itself. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” 1Peter4:12,13 “…Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.” 1Peter5:14 I pray for my country, our elected officials, the military, my neighbors, friends, family, everyone to come to the realization that God IS in control and receive His free gift of forgiveness and love. In Jesus’ name. Father let it be Thy will. Amen.
