North Korea leader warns of ‘preemptive’ use of nuclear force
May 2, 2022 — SpaceWar.com reports: “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has repeated his warning that Pyongyang could ‘preemptively’ use its nuclear weaponry to counter hostile forces, state media reported Saturday.
Kim told top military officers that to ‘maintain the absolute superiority’ of North Korea’s armed forces, the country should be able to ‘preemptively and thoroughly contain and frustrate all dangerous attempts and threatening moves… if necessary,’ the official KCNA news agency reported.
Pyongyang should continue to build up its arsenal so that it can have the ‘overwhelming military muscle that no force in the world can provoke,’ Kim said, calling it the ‘lifeline guaranteeing the security of our country’.
The leader’s comments followed similar remarks at a military parade on Monday, when he said he could use his atomic arsenal if North Korea’s ‘fundamental interests’ were threatened…” (Nuclear war is coming – Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. This conflict called Armageddon is described in Revelation 9:14 – 18. See the next report.)

The latest launch comes just days after US President Joe Biden left South Korea Sunday.
Despite struggling with a recent Covid-19 outbreak, the isolated country has resumed construction at a long-dormant nuclear reactor, new satellite imagery has indicated.
