In the latest bizarre threat to the United States to come from Kim Jong Un’s regime, an editorial by North Korea’s state news agency warned that the White House would be “reduced to ashes.”
According to the U.K. Sunday Express, the 2,000-word editorial condemned the Trump administration for its deployment of naval vessels to the region and promised forced reunification with South Korea.
“This is a stern warning to the U.S. imperialists and their stooges running amuck for aggression and war moves,” the editorial read. “The world will clearly witness how the crime-woven history of the U.S. imperialists will be over, how the despicable remaining days of the South Korean puppet forces will come to an end and how national reunification, the cherished desire of the Korean nation, will be achieved.”
The United States, the editorial said, is a “hotbed of evil.” Therefore, the regime promised an “indiscriminate preemptive nuclear strike” upon it to make sure America would be “something that cannot come back to life again.”
The editorial also claimed that 330,000 U.S. soldiers had taken part in recent drills with Japan and South Korea (that would be over one quarter of all enlisted soldiers, an absurd claim), and referred to American soldiers as “murderous ogres,” “robbers,” “air pirates” and “warriors who master the occult arts.”
This would almost be funny (that last part makes our men and women in uniform sound like characters from “Mortal Kombat”) if it wasn’t coming from a regime that has nuclear weapons.
“The Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S. and the Intelligence Service (IS) of south Korea, hotbed of evils in the world, hatched a vicious plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK and those acts have been put into the extremely serious phase of implementation after crossing the threshold of the DPRK,” the editorial read.
While these screeds are ungrammatical enough that they sound like they were scribbled off in crayon, it pays to remember that North Korea can’t afford crayons — just nuclear weapons, which they seem determined to wave in our face like a gun.
President Trump is going to have to do something, and he’s going to have to do it fast. While they may not be able to turn the White House into a pile of ashes, they seem intent on turning something into a pile of ashes.
