North Korea Threatens The White House, Acknowledges Cyber Warfare

/ 5 years ago


North Korea has delivered a threat to the United States over its accusations that it was behind the Sony Pictures hack. They’ve warned that they will attack the White House and “the whole US mainland, that cesspool of terrorism”.

They accused the US government of being behind the “vicious and dastardly” plot of ‘The Interview’.

“Our toughest counteraction will be boldly taken against the White House, the Pentagon and the whole US mainland, the cesspool of terrorism, by far surpassing the ‘symmetric counteraction’ declared by Obama.”

They said that they also plan to take down “US citadels” using their armed forces and, rather interestingly, cyber warfare – their first public acknowledgement of their intention to use the internet to attack other countries.

“Our target all the citadels of the US imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Koreans, the army and people of the DPRK are fully ready to stand in confrontation with the US in all war spaces, including cyber warfare to blow up those citadels,”

North Korea is no stranger to delivering heavy handed statements like this, but most of the time they never transpire to anything major. However, now they’ve publicly acknowledged “cyber warfare”, it’ll be interesting to see whether there are any more hacks on the horizon.
