Bereft of Reason

Phrase of Teh Day Week Whatever!

I think this may be an issue of Gained in Translation, but the verbiage is …horifarious*.
[*Horrifying and Hilarious]

From a Phat little Phuk who runs a tiny, resource-less country filled with starving, terrified people. Who wants a slice o’ that??.
rly. who?

As already clarified, the Strategic Force of the KPA is seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.

On Tuesday, the KPA Strategic Force through a statement of its spokesman fully warned the U.S. against its all-round sanctions on the DPRK and moves of maximizing military threats to it. But the U.S. president at a golf links again let out a load of nonsense about “fire and fury,” failing to grasp the on-going grave situation. This is extremely getting on the nerves of the infuriated Hwasong artillerymen of the KPA.

It seems that he has not yet understood the statement.

Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him. This is the judgment made by the service personnel of the KPA Strategic Force.

The military action the KPA is about to take will be an effective remedy for restraining the frantic moves of the U.S. in the southern part of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity.

… The Strategic Force is also considering the plan for opening to public the historic enveloping fire at Guam, a practical action targeting the U.S. bases of aggression.

Gonna sell tickets PhatBoy? “Practical”? “US bases of aggresion”?

Like we would pay a quarter-second of attention to y’all if ya weren’t tantruming like a three-year-old in front of the candy display at Target.

    Let’s say you’re a dictator of a small country whose tax base was destroyed by the communist policies of your father and grandfather. To stay in power, you have to buy the loyalty of the military officers who protect you. But where do you get the money? Mostly counterfeiting (US currency, cigarettes, pharmaceuticals) and reselling military hardware.

    But it’s getting harder to profit from the counterfeiting. So here’s what happens next: Best Korea conducts a “test” by firing a missile with a live warhead into the waters of the west Pacific. (Probably north of Wake Island, the Guam thing being a misdirection play.)

    It goes BOOM and Finest Korea says “It’s not like you haven’t blown up atom bombs in the Pacific. What are you going to do about it?” The US and its allies fume while Greatest Korea sells ready-to-fire nuke-and-missile packages to anyone with a few billion dollars to spare.

    A proliferation nightmare, leading to such scenarios as: one nation invades a “disputed territory” and announces that if anyone interferes, they’ll get blown up. Other nations go out and buy their own bombs in response. Pretty soon, everybody’s got one, and Great Leader Kim has the money he needs.

    I’m sure such a guy is tantrumized by this clarification of the previously clarified. It must be extremely getting on his nerves.

    “It seems that he has not yet understood the statement.”
    Yep, seems that such a guy finally used language that Kim understands, though.

    Me, I don’t understand the meaning of Kim’s “enveloping strike” employing four weapons.
    I’ll bet some NorK general got one of his torso-full of medals for coming up with taking credit for that term.

    “An effective remedy for restraining the frantic moves of the U.S.” is an ambiguous use of the word “remedy.”

    Yeah, a translator’s work is hard.
    It’s harder when there’re guns pointed at your family’s heads.
    Then again, it’s possible that the translators actually enjoy making Kim sound silly, because the barbers have fun making him look silly.

    He who lives by the idiom, dies by the idiom.
    “Opening to public” reminds me of Ron White’s joke (@2:50).

    “Bereft” reminds me of a self-effacing characterization I heard while stationed in the UK:
    A Yorkshireman is a Scotsman bereft of his generosity.

    Maybe the enveloping is and attempt to show targeting consistency, like the knife thrower pinning 4 blades around the assistant’s head without hitting the head. Then the videos of 4 splashes around Guam would make good B roll and keep peeps from all running to one side of the island and tipping it over.

    But if one gets too close to Anderson. . . well Kim bye bye

    I think FatBoy gave a date for the “attack”. If I was POTUS, I would show up in Guam on that date for a visit to the Anderson Base.
