North Korea’s provocative nuclear rhetoric has gotten so bad even the Kremlin has come out against the hermit kingdom, warning continued nuclear threats could justify an invasion.

The warning was issued in the form of a written statement from the Russian foreign ministry. It follows North Korea’s threat it would engage in a “preemptive and offensive nuclear strike” in reaction to the start of joint U.S.-South Korean war games Monday.

“We consider it to be absolutely impermissible to make public statements containing threats to deliver some ‘preventive nuclear strikes’ against opponents,” said the statement, as translated by the Russian TASS news agency. “Pyongyang should be aware of the fact that in this way the DPRK [North Korea] will become fully opposed to the international community and will create international legal grounds for using military force against itself in accordance with the right of a state to self-defense enshrined in the United Nations Charter.”

Russia also had harsh words for the U.S. and South Korea, condemning the “unprecedented” exercises. “The development of the situation on the Korean peninsula and around it is causing growing concern,” said a statement issued Monday, as reported by the Kremlin-funded RT news channel.

Part of the planned war games involved the U.S. and South Korea simulating strikes against North Korea’s nuclear facilities and special forces raids against Pyongyang leadership. Around 17,000 U.S. personnel and 300,000 South Korean personnel are participating in the ongoing eight-week war game. The troop levels represent about a one-third increase from last year’s similar war game.

North Korea’s sabre-rattling has reached a fever pitch in recent months. The pariah state carried out its fourth nuclear test in January and launched a rocket in violation of international sanctions in February. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned Congress in early February that North Korea had restarted its plutonium reactor and was poised to produce weapons-grade nuclear material within weeks.

In response to North Korean provocations, the United Nations security council voted unanimously last Thursday to pass a new round of sanctions against the country.

The last thing we want is nuclear war, and that includes North Korea, who only faces complete and utter destruction. No need to escalate on empty lies.

Although I don't trust Russia, I'm glad they're actually willing to do something. We definitely don't want North Korea to have nuclear weapons.

North Korea is really not a serious threat to us at all regardless of whether or no they have nukes, but if Russia wants to go on the offensive against them I see no reason to stop them

The irony of Russia lecturing another nation on inacceptability of a policy of nuclear first-strike runs thick, considering that the Russian military doctrine rolled out a couple years ago includes just that: the threat of pre-emptive strikes, to include nuclear, if an existential threat to the Russian state existed.

North Korea is not an EXISTENTIAL threat to the US. They cannot end the US as a country. That does not mean the ability to smuggle a 10+ KT nuclear device into a major port city is not a "threat". Of course they are a threat.

I severely doubt that North Korea would be able to do that undetected, I also don't live in the US but that's neither here nor there.
