North Korea Issues Chilling Warning To America
Communist dictator of North Korea Kim Jong-un may be prepared to launch a nuclear missile into America if the need arises, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
According to KCNA, North Korea staged an ICBM launch into the East Sea (or Sea of Japan) on Monday. The news outlet reported the launch was staged to show America and its allies North Korea’s nuclear capabilities and its matchless strength.
The news outlet revealed that the launch was carried out in response to defense cooperation between South Korea, the U.S. and Japan. The defense cooperation among the three countries is meant to track North Korea’s illegal nuclear weapons program.

Kim Jong-un, who was present at the launch and personally gave the order, said that the launch provided an occasion for North Korea to show what it can do if Washington made the wrong choice.
“Kim Jong-un said that it was an occasion to clearly show what action the DPRK has prepared and what option the DPRK would take when Washington makes a wrong decision against it,” the outlet reported. “He appreciated that the drill once again and strikingly displayed the DPRK’s will for toughest counteraction and its overwhelming strength.”
According to the media outlet, Kim Jong-un ordered the launch to show the United States that he was prepared to use nuclear weapons on America.
