ibtimes.com North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told his country's army Saturday to prepare for a war against the U.S. and its allies, amid continuing tensions with South Korea. The comments follow a joint naval drill that began between the U.S. and South Korea, which took place Friday. “The prevailing situation where a great war for national reunification is at hand requires all the KPA [Korean People's Army] units to become [elite] Guard Units fully prepared for war politically and ideologically, in military technique and materially," Kim said, according to Agence France-Presse, which cited the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Kim’s comments were made during the opening of a new hall at the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum in Pyongyang. Kim called on the North Korean military to “tear to pieces the Stars and Stripes of the U.S. imperialists and the flags of forces following them in the war to be fought with them in the future,” an article in the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, said. .
