North Korea Claims 4.7 Million Have Joined Army To Fight Trump

North Korea claims that 4.7 million of its citizens have volunteered to join or re-enlist in the military since leader Kim Jong Un threatened to "tame” President Trump “with fire" last week, North Korean state media reported.

Millions of young men and 1.22 million women said they wanted sign up to counter the U.S. since Friday, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper reported.

Pyongyang has previously claimed that North Koreans have volunteered to join the military as part of propaganda campaigns to boost solidarity, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

China, Pyongyang's most important ally, on Thursday ordered North Korean companies in the country and joint ventures with Chinese firms to close within 120 days of the passing of the latest round of U.N. sanctions on Sept. 12.

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to ban North Korean textile exports and cap fuel supplies following the North's sixth nuclear test earlier this month.

2. Can they send some to Puerto Rico?

They could use some hands and truck drivers.

Apparently the idea of sending a couple battalions of our guys and girls down there hasn't dawned on anyone here.

3. That, and to get an extra bowl of rice on Sunday

Nothing like a little starvation to motivate people.

Li'l Kim says, "We have yuge crowds coming out to support me in my fight against Dotard. Literally, the bigliest ever crowds!"

9. 20% percent of NK's entire population?

 

That number is app. 20% percent of NK's entire population, and given that its active army is currently less than one million, a fourfold increase comes across as both an untenable and a rather creative amount.

10. Are they going to ride piggyback on missiles?

Any beef we have with them will be our missiles and bombs vs their weak missiles and artillery positions aimed at Seoul. No real need for troops
