There is no denying that the leadership in North Korea tends to exaggerate their place on the world’s stage, and their ability to compete military with the rest of the international community, but surely doesn’t seem to bother them.
For decades, North Korea has suggested that they themselves will bring about the end of the American experiment, even going so far at times as to provide poorly-made CGI videos of Washington DC being obliterated by a supposed nuclear weapon.
Now, from the relative safety of their embassy in North Korea, Pyongyang’s leadership is again threatening to “end” the United States.
Russia’s TASS news agency reported the statement out of North Korea’s outpost in Moscow on Saturday, stating it was sent to the agency directly from the embassy.
“This year, the U.S. military is deploying all sorts of military maneuvers in South Korea and in the areas adjacent to it,” the North Korean embassy in Moscow reportedly stated, without specifying what “maneuvers” it was referring to since Seoul and Washington have paused military activities. It instead highlighted its possession of nuclear weapons “which are capable of mercilessly punishing those who dare to raise their hand at it, in whatever corner of the … planet he may be.”
“A new round of the Korean War will add a particularly sensational event to the history of mankind, which will put an end to another empire, whose name is the United States,” the statement reportedly concluded.
President Donald Trump had earlier appeared to be making progress when it came to diplomatic relations with North Korea, only to have Kim Jong Un’s belligerence rear its ugly head time and time again in the ensuing months.
