"In North Hwanghae Province, 89,000 young men pleaded to enlist or reenlist on August 9 alone".

The country's official newspaper, Rodong Simmun, reported that the huge intake of new military members came after the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) issued a statement regarding the new United Nations sanctions that were brought in on Monday (7 August). In Daedong County of South Pyongan Province, more than 20,000 students, party members and laborers filed enlistment or reenlistment requests.”.

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on August 5 for fresh sanctions on the DPRK following its two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

It said there had recently been an evacuation drill to deal with a "ballistic rocket threat" from someone in Hawaii in response to President Donald Trump's vows that the USA would "not rule out a war".

U.S. spooks confirmed Kim Jong-un can now miniaturise nuclear warheads for use on his ICBMs, and the island is well within range of his missiles. In case North Korea attacked the US Pacific military bases, NATO countries will not be automatically involved in the conflict on the current legal basis, a NATO official told TASS on Friday.

Amid the recent spike in tensions, Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", later adding that the threat wasn't tough enough.

KCNA said: "The "sanctions resolution" is no more than the last-ditch efforts of those frightened by the might of (North Korea)".

Speaking to RT, Leonid Ivashov, a political analyst and retired Russian colonel-general, said North Korea wouldn't stand a chance against the United States if the conflict entered a military stage.

Ghosts of the last time America went to war in Korea have been brought back to life through the work of a British electrician.

"The US has a powerful anti-missile defense system off the coast of the Korean Peninsula... which may well intercept Pyongyang's missiles".
