The threats from the rogue nation of North Korea has been consistently grim and grandiose in recent days, with no clear end in sight.
The DPRK dictatorship has now successfully launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of possibly striking the continental United States – a first for the aggressive Asian nation. This latest development has emboldened their “supreme” leader Kim Jong Un into running his mouth at a frenzied pace, issuing threat after threat aimed in the general direction of America and its population.
In its latest tirade, North Korea has claimed that its missiles are “on standby” and it is preparing to completely destroy the United States – a threat that Kim has issued several times in the past.
“North Korea took its turn Saturday in the country’s escalating, back-and-fourth with President Trump, with the state-run newspaper saying leader Kim Jung Un’s revolutionary army is ‘capable of fighting any war the U.S. wants.’
“The assertion was made in an editorial that also states the Paektusan army is now ‘on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack.’
“The editorial also argues that the United States ‘finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK. This is tragicomedy of its own making. … If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly.’
“DPRK stands for North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
“The editorial appears to be in response to a series of comments made by Trump in recent days, most recently Friday that the United States is ‘locked and loaded.’”
The war of words between Trump and Kim has been ongoing for weeks, with a recent uptick in rhetoric coming this week.
Kim Jong Un’s military has been spotted preparing submarines for missile launches via spy satellites, as well as prepping for what appears to be a test at one of their nuclear development sites. This has many in the U.S. alarmed, as Kim and his military have a long history of brash and unpredictable actions.
