While the U.S. mainstream media has been busy covering the devastating impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Kim Jong Un is continuing his march to war.
The tyrannical dictator of North Korea has spent the better part of the last year aggravating the United States in a myriad of ways. Not only has the unhinged leader issued a relentless torrent of threats directed at America and her leaders, but his latest round of weapons tests have shown that the reclusive nation is likely capable of doing some real damage.
Over the course of the summer, North Korea not only launched its first ever intercontinental ballistic missiles, capable of reaching Chicago according to experts, but the tiny nation also conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear detonation. The device rocked the international community, who believe that it could very well be a hydrogen bomb capable of an impact over ten times the power of the explosives that ended World War II.
Neighboring Japan is obviously concerned about what Kim Jong Un’s next move will be, and has issued a dire warning for allied nations this week.
“North Korea is ready to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 8,000 miles, Japanese military sources have claimed.
“Maniac despot Kim Jong-un has begun moving the rockets into position according to several military sources.
“One of the sources says that movement of one of the launch pads was first noticed yesterday morning – and according to its size it is large enough to fire a carry an ICBM class Hwasong-14 ballistic missile with a range of 13,000km (8,000 miles).
“The UK is almost 5,400 miles from North Korea – while the US is just over 6,5000 miles away, putting it well within target range.
“Japan – which has been threatened with a nuclear attack by the rogue state – also says the missile launch pad started moving yesterday.”
U.S. President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have been engaged in a heated war of words lately, with our Commander in Chief not shying away from tough talk directed at the dainty despot.
Just this week Trump responded to Kim’s vulgar verbal attack on UN Ambassador Nikki Haley by casually reminding Kim that the updated sanctions placed on North Korea are “nothing” compared to “what’s coming next” for the rogue regime. Military options against North Korea are likely to be messy, but there are few other options remaining given the pace and the power of Kim’s threats.
