This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

The rogue Communist regime in North Korea now is saying that its missile launches in recent days have just been a practice for what it thinks will be a “merciless” response to military actions by South Korea and the United States.

The nation’s military general staff said, according to state media, that its “response will be more thorough and merciless as the provocative military maneuvers of the enemies persist, and this will become the unwavering principle and direction of our armed forces in the future.”

The U.S. and South Korea recently have engaged in joint military maneuver practices, triggering North Korea’s Communist regime.

It said its missile “tests” over recent days were nothing but practice for its response to South Korea and the U.S.

report from Just the News also said the North Korean military promised to “respond to the enemy’s all kinds of anti-[North Korea] war exercises with continuous, resolute and overwhelming practical military measures.”

WND reported last week that North Korea, which has launched dozens of missiles in the last few days, triggered evacuation warnings and railway closures in Japan with its aggressive behavior.

One of the recent launches was of an ICBM, too, reports confirmed.

Reports have speculated that experts believe North Korea is trying to force the U.S. to accept it as a nuclear power, and give it the power to negotiate economic and security concessions.

The Biden administration responded with a promise of “costs and consequences” for North Korea.

One of the dozens of missiles launched struck near the South Korean coast.

Reports also confirmed South Korea scrambled its jets on Friday after North Korea launched an estimated 180 flights near the shared boundary.
