Kim Jong Un’s longstanding threat to annihilate America has been reiterated wholeheartedly in recent weeks, with two of the rogue nation’s most successful missile tests falling just weeks apart in June.
From the moment that President Trump took office, North Korea has been pushing the international envelope as it pertains to threatening language and actions aimed directly at the White House. The reclusive regime has never been in line with U.S. wishes, but this most recent rise in tensions seems aimed at irking Donald Trump in particular.
Now, as two ICBM’s have lit up the skies around the Korean Peninsula, with the second test coming within 70 miles of a commercial airliner, Kim Jong Un and his military cronies have issued stark new threats against the U.S., promising more “gift packages” to be delivered shortly.
“NORTH Korea has declared Donald Trump was sitting on the ‘knife edge of life and death’ and that he should brace himself for ‘gift packages’.
“The North Korean threat was made in the state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmu.
“An editorial said: ‘Every minute and every second, the new reality that US mainland is on the knife’s edge of life and death is forcing US administration to wave a white flag and fundamentally change her North Korea policy.
“’If the US still refuses to accept such a realistic demand and doggedly pursue hostile policy against North Korea in order to save face, she will receive unexpected “gift packages” which we will continue to send.’
“It is believed the so-called ‘gift packages’ are nuclear missiles.”
The latest ramping up of military action in North Korea has included a number of submarine maneuvers, the aforementioned missile launches, and concerns over a possible series of nuclear tests.
While it is uncertain exactly what the size and the scope of North Korea’s nuclear arsenal truly is, the most widely accepted conclusion is that Kim Jong Un is in possession of several atomic devices of plutonium-based construction, although experts are quick to point out that hydrogen bombs are not out of the realm of possibility either. Consensus is that, at this juncture, the nuclear weapons and ICBM’s exist in singularity, with current North Korean technology preventing the regime from attaching any of their atomic arsenal to their ICBM armada.
That won’t always be the case, however, and experts fear that Kim could have his hands on a device capable of nuking the United States with a year or two, creating a hasty timeline for the Trump team to come up with a solution to the deteriorating diplomatic debacle.
