North Korea: Nearly 3.5 Million Volunteer for People's Army

"In Daedong County of South Pyongan Province, more than 20,000 students, party members and labourers filed enlistment or reenlistment requests".

The Rodong Sinmun commentary, reported by state news agency the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said in the wake of its latest successful missile launch test, the regime remains steadfast in its aim to "put an end to the hostile moves of the US".

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on August 5 for fresh sanctions on the DPRK following its two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July. Russia, however, said that the missiles were intermediate range.

Thousands of workers gathered in the capital Pyongyang in protest and in defiance of Donald Trump's warning of "fire and fury". "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!", Trump wrote.

North Korea threatened to strike the United States and its Pacific territory of Guam.

Donald Trump has threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" as well as tweeting that the USA was "locked and loaded". In case North Korea attacked the US Pacific military bases, NATO countries will not be automatically involved in the conflict on the current legal basis, a NATO official told TASS on Friday.

He tweeted: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

"There are direct threats of deploying [military] power", he said, adding that "the side that is stronger and smarter" should take the first step to defuse tensions.

It follows the announcement that North Korea had miniaturised a nuclear warhead capable of reaching the mainland US.

"It's a total mismatch", Ivashov, who now heads the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, said of a possible confrontation between Washington and Pyongyang.

Ghosts of the last time America went to war in Korea have been brought back to life through the work of a British electrician. "The Guam airbase which North Korea is planning to attack is also covered by U.S. anti-missile defense", he said.
