North Korea Threatens "Merciless" War With United States
March 14th, 2017 | Poletical News
North Korea's president, Kim Jong-Un, threatened a "merciless" attack on the United States on Tuesday following joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea. The country's state news network KCNA released Jong-Un's statement, which was quickly picked up by international media.
"If they infringe on the DPRK's sovereignty and dignity even a bit, its army will launch merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater," the statement said. “On March 11 alone, many enemy carrier-based aircraft flew along a course near territorial air and waters of the DPRK to stage drills of dropping bombs and making surprise attacks on the ground targets of its army.”
The statement came just days after North Korea test fired four nuclear-capable missiles off its coast and into the Sea of Japan. The international community and United Nations have condemned the recent actions of the North Korean regime. The latest provocation also follows the high profile assassination of Kim Jong-Un's brother in Malaysia.
North Korea has continued to lash out at the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense systems that have been deployed jointly by the United States and South Korea.
