Relations between North Korea and Donald Trump look to have soured even further after the President of the United States was warned of a missile attack on Guam if he didn’t restrain his Twitter outbursts.
Newsweek’s Tom O’Connor reported how North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s suspicion that the United Staes might look to “disarm North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic weapons arsenal by force” had led him to reconsider an earlier plan to attack U.S. territory Guam.
O’Connor provided a translation of an article posted on Friday by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA):
“We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defense including a salvo of missiles into waters near the U.S. territory of Guam, an advance base for invading the DPRK, where key U.S. bases are located, as the U.S. has resorted to military actions in sensitive regions, making the waters off the Korean peninsula and in the Pacific restless.
“The U.S. military action hardens our determination that the U.S. should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to ‘trigger’ for taking the toughest countermeasure.”
Tensions are running high, and Paddy Power are offering a host of ridiculous yet oddly intriguing specials relating to Kim Jong-Un and his nation’s relationships with their world peers.
