North Korea issued a terrifying warning to the U.S. this week, with dictator Kim Jong-Un saying that he is ready to counter any American hostility with “nuclear weapons at any time.”
According to Daily Mail, the North Korean leader said scientists have “made innovations day by day” to “guarantee the reliability of the nuclear deterrent… as required by the prevailing situation.”
“In the meantime, the US anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK that forced it to have access to the nuclear weapons has remained utterly unchanged and instead it has become all the more undisguised and vicious with the adoption of means openly seeking the downfall of the latter’s social system,” he continued.
This terrifying threat comes just one day after Pyongyang announced that they are ready to launch satellites aboard long-range rockets to celebrate a key anniversary in October.
A National Aerospace Development Administration director told the press that North Korea has made “shining achievements” in the space development field to mark the 70th birthday of the Worker’s Party next month.
“Space development for peaceful purposes is a sovereign state’s legitimate right … and the people of (North Korea) are fully determined to exercise this right no matter what others may say about it,” the unnamed director told Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency. He added that the world will “clearly see a series of satellites soaring into the sky at times and locations determined” by the Worker’s Party.
We can only hope that North Korea is bluffing with these threats, because if they aren’t, we could all be in big trouble…
