SEOUL, Feb. 23 (Yonhap) — North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has called for full combat readiness and a change in the machinery of his troops, as he chaired a key session of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea, Pyongyang’s media reported Monday.

Kim delivered a “historic speech” at the extended meeting of the party’s Central Military Commission, the first of its kind in 10 months, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Calling on the military to be fully ready for any form of war, he clarified the methods of fighting a war with the U.S., it added without providing details.

He was quoted as saying that the security situations at home and abroad have been graver than at any other time since he seized power three years ago in the wake of the death of his father, Kim Jong-il.

Although the North’s armed forces have done well to protect the country, it’s time to beef up combat capabilities, he added.

“Emphasizing the need for the Korean People’s Army (KPA) to focus all of its efforts on rounding off combat readiness this year, he said it was necessary to simplify the machinery of the KPA and indicated the direction and ways for reorganizing the machinery in such a way to realize the strategic intention of the Supreme Command any time,” the KCNA said in an English-language report.

Kim presided over the previous session of the party committee in April last year, in which the North’s top officials discussed the nation’s defense policy and war tactics.

      Also, Canadians wonder when coming doom will happen to our brothers to the south. We’re bound to take some collateral damage as I’m sure the ‘sea of fire’ won’t stop at the border. I pray a peace can be found.

    Such a brave face from people who will no doubt stay stateside come a war, hiding in their homes while others fight for them.

      In the US we kill people from Virginia. A drone pilot is just chillin at a big-ass computer playing video games as people half-way across the world flee for their lives and explode.

      It’s fucked up, but it’s modern war and a lot of it can now be fought stateside.

      I don’t plan on joining the military, but I pay my taxes for the largest military force in the known universe and should be able to feel comfort that we could/would cripple the KPA without setting a boot on the ground.

    The US is taking this threat very seriously, in a fit of utter fear the US established SETI years ago and decided to contact alien life to open negotiations in a bid for protection from Kim Jong-un and his axis of evil.

    North Korea should be thankful for gravity. If it wasn’t for that their missiles wouldn’t hit the ocean.

    Take your Ugly ass to the doctors and get some meds. From now on only women should be world leaders, the men have done a shitty job. Women make better leaders. And our history is proof of that. Go have a baby first and then come back and tell me you want to start a war. How dare you guys keep thinking war is going to get you what you want. That will be the last thing you get. Yeah you want a war but you send everyone’s baby to die fighting it. From the looks of this guys shape he has not done much but sit on his ass projecting his hatefulness. The minute a leader talks of war we should yank his ass out of office and lock him up in a mental ward. Only a crazy person is into killing people. And someone who wants to kill people in masses is a complete nut.
