North Korean Photos Show Plans for Attack on US

'The time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists'

The United States Thursday flew two B-2 Spirit bombers more than 6,500 miles from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to South Korea to drop dummy bombs as part of the on going US-South Korea war games, the U.S Forces in Korea said in a statement.

Now, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has responded in anger announcing Friday that "the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation" by "physical means."

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) released photos Friday showing the young North Korean leader in his war room early this morning with his senior generals signing off on a plan to ready his forces to target the U.S. mainland.

In the enlarged photo below, according to NK NEWS, the text reads "U.S. Mainland Strike Plan" and a larger map towards the back of the command center appears to show the Western coast of the United States.

And an NK-News composite overlay shows San Diego, Washington D.C., Hawaii and possibly Austin as being primary targets in a North Korean attack plan:

Later Friday in Pyongyang, tens of thousands of North Koreans turned out for a mass rally in support of Kim's call to arms. Men and women stood in arrow-straight lines, fists raised as they chanted, "Death to the U.S. imperialists" and "Let's rip the puppet traitors to death!"
