We Will Remove Anderson Air Base from Earth: KPA Officers

Pyongyang, March 27 (KCNA) — Upon receiving the statement of the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) issued on Tuesday, all the KPA men and officers are seized with an urge to show the DPRK’s will of counteraction by practical military actions.

Pae Kwang Phyo, a KPA officer, told 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.”

Hong Kum Chol, another officer, said:

“The KPA Air Force is put on alert.

It will never miss the opportunity to sweep away the Anderson air base in Guam.”

Right. So, we know these are crazy people, and they are almost certainly bluffing. As The Guardian reports:

Despite the tide of hostile rhetoric from Pyongyang, it has kept open a joint economic zone with the South which generates $2bn a year in trade, money the impoverished state can ill-afford to lose.

But do you suppose they might not be? What’s the endgame here? What’s this all about? Help me here.
