North Korea warns United States of 'greatest pain' over fresh sanctions

The U.S.is going frantic to fabricate the harshest ever "sanctions resolution" by manipulating the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over the DPRK's ICBM mountable H-bomb test.

The DPRK is ready and willing to use any form of ultimate means.

A previously circulated version of the U.S. resolution called for a full ban on exports of oil to North Korea and an asset freeze on Kim, the Worker's Party and government of North Korea. Both had expressed skepticism over the strict sanctions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently expressed doubt over whether sanctions are an effective means of getting the North to stop its missile and nuclear testing, and China, harboring similar concerns, has repeatedly hesitated in the past to fully support US sanction plans.

North Korea imports mostly gasoline and diesel fuel from China which are vital to the country's agriculture, transportation and military sectors, according to the EIA.

The UNSC adopted new sanctions Monday in the wake of North Korea's most powerful nuclear test on September 3.

"The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the USA the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history", the ministry said, using the abbreviation for North Korea's formal name.

It's out of the ordinary for a senior government leader to say publicly they were working on a plan to assassinate a foreign head of state.

Moreover, this resolution also put an end to the regime making money from the 93,000 North Korean citizens it sent overseas to work and heavily taxed, she noted.

Texans activate Jaelen Strong, place CJ Fiedorowicz on IR
Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson suffered concussions in the Week 1 loss to Jacksonville. He totaled four catches for 32 yards in three exhibition games after being an undrafted free agent.

The test, which the North said was a hydrogen bomb that could be fitted onto a rocket, came weeks after Pyongyang fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that appeared to bring much of the mainland U.S. into range. He cited Trump's warning last month of "fire and fury" against the North if it makes more threats, and his "shaming" of allies through tweets, which he said undermined US credibility.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the latest United Nations sanctions are just another "very small step" and "nothing compared to" what will happen in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

But Kang added both the United States and South Korea believed in following a policy of "responding firmly (to) provocations through tough sanctions while leaving the door open for dialogue".

Washington has said military action remains an option in dealing with Pyongyang and threatened to cut economic ties with the countries that continue to trade with it.

She said an agreement similar to the Iranian nuclear deal struck under the Obama administration could be the solution. "Europe and especially Germany should be prepared to play a very active part in that", Merkel told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung in an interview published Sunday.

"If it proves it can live in peace, the world will live in peace with it", Haley added.

"Because of uneven, and sometimes nonexistent, global implementation, North Korea shrugs off the practical impact of many restrictions, and is still exporting prohibited goods such as weapons, minerals, and statues", Billingslea said.
