North Korea has threatened the UK for taking part in joint exercises with US and South Korean military forces.

A statement by the Korean Central News Agency read:

 “We solemnly warn not only the US and the puppet group but also satellites, including the UK and Australia, which are taking advantage of the present war manoeuvres against the North, that they would face a miserable end if they join in.”

The deployment of 30 British United Nations Command forces personnel has been reported by some newspapers as a major military deployment.

The United Nations Command is the unified command structure for the multinational military forces, established in 1950, supporting South Korea during and after the Korean War.

Exercise Ulchi Freedom Guardian is designed to enhance readiness, protect the region and maintain stability on the Korean Peninsula and features minimal British involvement.

About 17,500 US service members will participate, with about 3,000 coming from installations outside South Korea. They will join military forces from major South Korean units representing all services, as well as South Korean government participants.

In addition, United Nations Command forces staff from seven nations — Australia, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom — will participate.

  1. Given our terrible finianical position I think we already know we are in for a miserable end, but thanks for confirming it Kim.

  2. I think Kim Jong-un just upgraded our status. If I read it right we’re not part of the “puppet group”, we are one of the satellites. That’s an improvement from being a puppet isn’t it?

  3. We do every four years yer cadburys fruit n nutleness its called the World cup. Best of luck with that anyways old chap. X

  4. Personally I believe we should add pork pies to the list of sanctioned items to North Korea. The little fat funny man will be fuming!

  5. It’s quite a shame, that 30 British officials constituency a threat to North Korea national security. Imagine how he would feel with a type 45 destroyer parked off his coast. As a nation fifty years ahead of them technology wise, North Korea are struggling to enter the 1960s when SLBMS were perfected.

  6. It’s a pity that S Korea is parked underneath or we could send him a nice nuclear postcard. Better still, a postcard of Blackpool would really crank him up the misery chart.

  7. Kim JY is a joke character. His armed forces represent zero threat to the UK. However I would not like to be a resident in South Korea with that mad man on your doorstep.
    latest missile test made me laugh, 3 ballistic missiles launched all 3 malfunctioned and crashed into the sea well short of their intended range limit.
    Easy pickings for a typhoon or type 45 destroyer or sea ceptor armed type 23.
    KJY must realise he is starring down a barrel of a loaded gun. The USA and South Korea+ Japan have military forces decades more advanced and capable then he has. Only thing North Korea can threaten is a massive number of conventional artillery pieces which would be ground down by Apache, A10, Typhoon, Reaper, F15,F16 precision bombing. I would give the entirety of North Koreas military about 4-6 weeks maximum survival before they become an uncoordinated ragged remnants. We simply have to contain and ignore this madman. No need for a war unless he succeeded in developing nuclear capable ICBMs and was able to use them.

  8. Kim is a joke, trouble his joke figure with nuclear weapons that inflict enormous damage to his neighbours and therefore the world economy.

    What to do next? No easy options just difficult ones full of nuclear risk.

  9. I agree that at present NK is not a real threat to anyone but SK. Rants from Kim are doubtless as much for internal consumption as they are serious threats to the outside world. I don’t think Kim is so deluded to think he could do anything but lose a war very badly, and that would be the end of his dynasty. A big unknown is how the people of NK really feel about him and his cronies. They are bombarded with endless propaganda, but do they believe it and how determindly would his armed forces defend him? We really don’t know if all those parades are a result of genuine love for Kim, out of fear, or a mixture of the two. The danger is that at some time in the future those missiles will achieve reliability and become a threat that can’t be laughed at.

  10. The UK wont join in.we were spent when we went into Iraq and Afghanistan.the west does not have the man power.ok yes they did in the first korea war but when china got involved we nearly lost the war and much of the country was taken over.China is playing us.China and russia do not want western troops at their border and with china building its fleet and moving on our economy,they will step in no matter what.

    China sent in 1 million men as so called “Volunteers” .that amount was nothing.would USA and the west win if China was FULLY mobilized? and with the west troops in korea facing millions of men its no suprise that russia will move into europe and where would the troops come from then? The west cannot invade asia its a fact,even the military generals dread it.They dreaded it during Ww2 when they said they wanted to send in troops to free china from occupation.that would of taken years and alot of man power.America needs to re think on what they are doing.having a big navy is one thing but its troops are not expierenced in fighting in asia

  11. Yeah but… he believes his own hype and so do his poor people. They are armed to the teeth with low-tech weapons and thus constitute an existential threat to South Korea (and themselves). Just ignore Kim Jong Un – best option by far.

    • Ignoring them has allowed them to slowly and inexorably develop both their missile and warhead programmes.

      Ignoring them has enabled them to reach the point of having a functioning nuclear weapons capability.

      Ignoring them has been a bad plan from day 1

  12. Ignoring them is the only plan. I don’t like Steve Bannon but he was dead right when he said there is no military option unless you are prepared to accept ten million dead people in Seoul. If you’d care to explain a rational military option, I’d be all ears.

  13. Only a ‘miserable end’? Well we can do that all by ourselves!

    Maybe Kim’s warming to us.After all, whatever happened to that good old communist standby – ‘lickspittle running dogs of capitalist imperialism’!

    But seriously, given we have two nuclear-armed tubby men with daddy issues snarling at each other, the best might be to realise that from their point of view, NK’s nuclear programme – and Kim’s mad threats – are entirely reasonable. Terrifying but reasonable.

    After all, look at what happened to Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi when he gave up his nuclear programme – dead in a ditch – or Saddam who also ended his nuke programme – hanged by the neck. Having nukes is Kim’s guarantee he’ll be in charge next year.

    So, as bombing NK’s nuclear sites risks turning large parts of the region into a pile of glowing cinders and a hundred of thousands dead or injured, then containment is the only rational way to go. In his eyes, Kim wins – that is, he gets to stay as supreme leader – if everybody thinks he mad enough to press the button.

    Horrible for the rest of NK, but better than being dead and glowing.

    Best Tim

  14. Stop North Korea’s nuclear programme now, before it’s too late, before he has the chance to launch against America, South Korea or Japan. This would have to mean one gigantic, unprecedented pre emptive attack with battlefield and tactical nuclear weapons and hundreds of cruise missiles, shock and awe like never before, aimed at the leadership, military and civil ports, air bases, launch sites, radar tracking stations, reactors, munitions factories, fuel dumps, tunnels, roads, vehicles, basically flatten the lot to stop them from being able to retaliate.
