North Korea’s Kim Jong Un seeks ‘invincible military’ as he points blame at America

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his nation is building an invincible military as he accused America increased hostility in the region.

“The U.S. has frequently signaled it’s not hostile to our state, but there is no action-based evidence to make us believe that they are not hostile,” Kim said Monday, according to the Korean Central News Agency, North Korea’s state-run media.

“The U.S. is continuing to create tensions in the region with its wrong judgments and actions,” it added.

Strong Words

“We are not discussing war with anyone, but rather to prevent war itself and to literally increase war deterrence for the protection of national sovereignty,” Jong Un said in his speech.

“I say once again that South Korea isn’t the one that our military forces have to fight against. Surely, we aren’t strengthening our defense capability because of South Korea.

“We shouldn’t repeat a horrible history of compatriots using force against each other,” he added.

Other Concerning Issues

The Associated Press also reported on Sunday the Jong Un “urged officials to overcome a ‘grim situation’ facing the country and make stronger efforts to improve the food and living conditions of his people.”

The nation has ramped up recent missile tests, perhaps to repeat past experiences of negotiations to stop missile tests in exchange for promises for food or income from the United States.

Jung Un made no specific remarks to the connection, but instead referred to “unprecedented difficulties,” perhaps alluding to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The World Health Organization has recently offered COVID-19 vaccines to North Korea, offering a sign the nation will soon make changes in response to the virus.

However, the closed nation rarely signals its intentions, leaving many uncertain of what lies ahead regarding Jung Un’s political plans.

The combination of speeches and recent missile tests seem to indicate new activity, but an unclear answer regarding the leader’s future goals other than boasting of a strong military.
