North Korea’s “Supreme Leader” Kim Jong-un has been unapologetically telling the whole world he is not afraid of anybody and is threatening war.
Clearly he’s experiencing pompous delusions of grandeur over the power he thinks he wields.
His regime also just released several propaganda films depicting the nation nuking San Francisco and showing a massive graveyard with the American flag.
Meanwhile, Russia is mobilizing troops to the Korean Peninsula and Kim Jong-un seems to be ignoring China’s plea for peace.
Now North Korea has threatened one of our strongest allies.
International Business Times reported:
“Israel has become the latest country to incur the fury of North Korea. It threatened the Jewish-majority nation with a ‘merciless, thousand-fold punishment’ for ‘hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership.’
The threat has come in response to the Israeli defence minister calling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un a ‘madman.’ Avigdor Lieberman said tensions between the US and North Korea could impact Israel.
North Korea’s state-run mouthpiece Korean Central News Agency said in a statement: ‘The reckless remarks of the Israeli defence minister are sordid and wicked behaviour and a grave challenge to the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea].’
‘This is the cynical ploy to escape the world denunciation and curse as disturber of peace in the Middle East, occupier of the Arab territories and culprit of crimes against humanity,’ added the KCNA.
Pyongyang went on to say that it supports the struggle of Palestinians, adding that the Kim regime is in favour of establishing an independent state of Palestine. ‘Israel would be well advised to think twice about the consequences [of] its smear campaign against the DPRK,’ the North cautioned.”
Curiously, one should wonder if Kim Jong-un’s declaration about Palestine and being anti-Israel is just an attempt to taunt the United States.
On the other hand, some believe that Kim Jong-un has close ties with Iran and Syria, in which case his remarks make sense, but his hatred for the United States seems to supersede any other views.
The International Business Times concluded:
“North Korea is believed to have close military and weapons relations with some of Israel’s adversaries including Iran and Syria.
The North has reportedly cooperated with both Iran and Syria for its nuclear programme.
Speaking to Israeli news website Walla, Lieberman called the North Korean leadership a ‘crazy and radical group,’ adding that ‘Kim Jong-un is an ally of Assad. From North Korea, through Iran, to Syria and Hezbollah.’
Lieberman’s comments have also drawn criticism from his domestic political opponents who claim he was unnecessarily commenting on North Korean affairs.”
Meanwhile, Washington, D.C. has been preparing for whatever unpredictable action North Korea’s “Supreme Leader” decides to take.
Kim Jong-un also recently threatened to sink U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered submarine USS Michigan.
The International Business Times reported:
“North Korea has issued a fresh threat to sink the US Navy’s nuclear-powered submarine which is currently stationed in the Korean peninsula waters. Pyongyang said the vessel would be turned into an ‘underwater ghost.’
USS Michigan, armed with cruise missiles, arrived at the South Korean port of Busan on 25 April to take part in ‘routine’ exercises.
The Ohio-class submarine is being joined by a large fleet of the US Navy’s warships led by the supercarrier USS Carl Vinson, raising the tensions on the volatile Korean peninsula.
A statement from Pyongyang’s propaganda website Uriminzokkiri said: ‘The moment the USS Michigan tries to budge even a little, it will be doomed to face the miserable fate of becoming an underwater ghost without being able to come to the surface.’”
The one question we should be asking ourselves is whether Kim Jong-un is sane enough to understand how many nations are sick of his antics.
Well, the answer is probably not – and that’s a scary notion.
