Kim Jong-Un Is Threatening To Kill Everybody In America (Again)

Oh dear (Leader).

Just when you thought you’d heard the last rant by North Korean despot Kim Jong-un, comes another bout of anti-US warmongering.

Taking aim at his old enemy Barack Obama, he used the anniversary of the Korean War to send an unsettling threat to destroy the US and warn he would “leave no American alive.”

According to The Mirror, he said: “Gone forever is the era when the United States blackmailed us with nukes; now the United States is no longer a source of threat and fear for us and we are the very source of fear for it."

The grandstanding wasn’t done there either. General Pak Yong-sik of the Korean People's Army added, “The past Korean War brought about the beginning of the downhill turn for the US, but the second Korean War will bring the final ruin to US imperialism."

Chillingly, it comes in the wake of new satellite images being released by the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University to suggest the state has completed upgraded to its main satellite launch sites, fuelling speculation as to whether it can now fire long-range rockets.

Not that US citizens should be too worried – North Korea has long used this sort of political posturing, and comically idle threats, to  bolster support with their famine-hit population. And with the country currently in the grip of the worst drought in a century, this is very likely the case once more.

Recently marking 70 years of the regime (roughly the same number of officials Kim Jong-Un has had executed since seizing power), at least we can take comfort that they’ve moved on from banging on about Seth Rogen’s The Interview...

Now will someone just send him over a Big Mac to shut him up for good.
