For First Time, US Sanctions Kim Jong Un for Human Rights Abuses
July 7, 2016 Voice of America News reports: “For the first time, the United States has put North Korea’s leader on the U.S. sanctions list for human rights abuses.
Kim Jong Un is among nearly two-dozen entities and individuals placed on Washington’s blacklist for their role in serious human rights violations, hunting down defectors or censorship in North Korea.
‘We have identified 23 individuals and entities in our report, one of those individuals is Kim Jong Un, we have made the judgment that he is rather plainly, ultimately responsible for the actions of his regime including its repressive policies toward his own people,’ a senior U.S. official announced Wednesday.
Acting Under Secretary of Treasury Adam Szubin said, ‘Under Kim Jong Un, North Korea continues to inflict intolerable cruelty and hardship on millions of its own people, including extrajudicial killings, forced labor, and torture.’…” (This ungodly monster is one of the brute beasts of Jude 1:10 and is predicted to appear as Armageddon approaches in Revelation 16:16. II Timothy 3:13 warns that “evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” The next report tells what this brutal human being, or shall I be honest and mention him as a demonically controlled human who will end up in hell eternally – “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” – Matthew 25:41. Could this brute beast be the world’s terrorist and butcher?)
North Korea: U.S. Sanctions on Kim a ‘Declaration of War’
July 8, 2016 Voice of America News reports: “North Korea said Thursday that the most recent U.S. sanctions imposed on its leader, Kim Jong Un, amounted to a ‘declaration of war’ and vowed to take strong retaliatory measures against ‘the worst-ever hostile act.’
On Wednesday, the U.S. blacklisted Kim, along with 10 other people and five government ministries and departments, for the first time over human rights abuses.
‘Under Kim Jong Un, North Korea continues to inflict intolerable cruelty and hardship on millions of its own people, including extrajudicial killings, forced labor and torture,’ Adam Szubin, the U.S. Department of Treasury’s acting undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said in a statement…” (This brutal monster will pay dearly for the murder and deaths of hundreds, even thousands, God warns this godless villian: “…if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched” –Mark 9:43 – 44.

North Korea: We Won’t Abandon Nukes with US Gun to Our Head
June 25, 2016 Voice of America News reports: “The top North Korean official for U.S. relations told The Associated Press on Friday that his country is now a nuclear threat to be reckoned with, and Washington can expect more nuclear tests and missile launches like the ones earlier this week as long as it attempts to force his government’s collapse through a policy of pressure and punishment.
‘It’s the United States that caused this issue,” Han Song Ryol, director-general of the department of U.S. affairs at North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, said in his first interview with an American news organization since assuming the post three years ago. ‘They have to stop their military threats, sanctions and economic pressure. Without doing so, it’s like they are telling us to reconcile while they are putting a gun to our forehead.”
Han defended the North’s test-launching on Wednesday of two medium-range ballistic missiles. Foreign military experts believe that, once perfected, such missiles could deliver nuclear warheads to U.S. bases in Japan and possibly to major U.S. military installations as far away as the Pacific island of Guam, where long-range U.S. Air Force bombers are deployed…” (The bloody dictator of North Korea doesn’t have to worry about the USA., it’s the Almighty God who deals with these demonically controlled ungodly sinners – “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts…” – Malachi 4:1. See the next two reports.)
North Korea Vows To Turn South Into ‘Sea Of Fire’
July 11, 2016 SkyNews.com reports: “North Korea has said it will turn the South into a “pile of ashes” after moves by the US and Seoul to deploy a missile defence system on the peninsula.
Pyongyang said it would make a “physical response” following the deployment of the advanced THAAD missile defence system.
The US and South Korea said the anti-missile system will be used to counter North Korea’s growing nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities.
The announcement was the latest move by the allies against the North, which conducted its fourth nuclear test this year…”
South Korea, U.S. to deploy THAAD missile defense, drawing China rebuke
July 8, 2016 Reuters reports: “South Korea and the United States said on Friday they will deploy an advanced missile defense system in South Korea to counter a threat from North Korea, drawing sharp and swift protest from neighboring China.
The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system will be used only as protection against North Korea’s growing nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities, the South’s Defence Ministry and the U.S. Defence Department said in a joint statement.
Beijing said on Friday it lodged complaints with the U.S. and South Korean ambassadors over the THAAD decision.
China said the system would destabilize the security balance in the region without achieving anything to end the North’s nuclear program. China is North Korea’s main ally but opposes its pursuit of nuclear weapons and backed the latest U.N. sanctions against Pyongyang in March.
‘China strongly urges the United States and South Korea to stop the deployment process of the THAAD anti-missile system, not take any steps to complicate the regional situation and do nothing to harm China’s strategic security interests,’ the foreign ministry said in a statement…”
China protests over US deploying missile system in South Korea
July 11, 2016 SpaceDaily.com reports: “China lodged protests with US and South Korean ambassadors Friday over their countries’ decision to deploy an American missile defence system to counter threats from North Korea, a move Beijing said would damage regional security.
The deployment of the THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defence) system announced by Washington and Seoul would ‘will severely undermine regional strategic security and disrupt the strategic balance,’ foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters.
‘We strongly urge the US and the Republic of Korea to halt the deployment process,’ he said, adding that Beijing ‘has launched solemn representations with their ambassadors,’ without giving any more details.
The move would not aid the ‘denuclearisation’ of the Korean peninsula, he added…” (God will intervene for South Korea where Christ and Christianity rules. God speaks: “A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them… And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come” – Joel 2:3; 30 & 31.)
