North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided to talk tough in response to the CIA Director’s comments on regime change in Pyongyang. Un has threatened to strike the “heart of the US,” with a nuclear weapon.
Tensions have been increasing between North Korea and the United States ever since Un’s rise to power. Time after time, he’s tested Trump’s patience, with absolutely no regard for national safety.
No matter how many times China and the surrounding countries warned North Korea to stop testing missiles, they didn’t listen. Now, Kim Jong Un may have gone too far by threatening to pummel the “heart of the US.” Newsweek reports:
The North Korean regime has responded to CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s comments on regime change in Pyongyang.
A foreign ministry spokesman was quoted in the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) threatening a nuclear strike to “the heart of the U.S.” should the American secret service attempt to remove Kim Jong Un from power.
‘Should the U.S. dare to show even the slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership, we will strike a merciless blow at the heart of the U.S. with our powerful nuclear hammer, honed and hardened over time,’ the spokesman said, as the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported on Tuesday.
The North Koreans have just issued an official threat. They are ready to launch an ICBM at “the heart of the US,” which presumably means our very own capital.

If North Korea does decide to start a war with us, they’ll be up against far superior equipment:
The US is for instance setting up the THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) anti-missile system in South Korea aimed at neutralizing missiles launched from the North.
During war exercises last month off the Korean coast, F-35s took off from the flight deck of the Vinson. Also present, reportedly, were the same kind of special forces that took out Osama bin Laden.
If Kim Jong Un is actually serious, the second Korean war would be over just as fast as it started—the destruction would be difficult to resolve.
The United States has far more allies on the world’s stage than North Korea does, and our allies have more powerful military technology than they do. We have millions more people than North Korea has, our economy is larger, and our military budget absolutely DWARFS theirs.
Yet, somehow, this arrogant mini-monster Kim Jong Un thinks it’s a good idea to threaten Washington, D.C. with a nuclear weapon. Well, here’s a taste of what he’s up against:
The United States has the most powerful Navy on the face of the earth—Kim Jong Un would be demolished in seconds. We’ve got over 20,000 submariners, and 72 submarines actively patrolling the world’s oceans as we speak.
We have fast attack submarines, engineered to seek and destroy enemy submarines and ships with unparalleled speed. We have ballistic missile submarines, which serve as completely undetectable launch platforms for nuclear missiles.
We have guided missile submarines, which gives our Navy unprecedented special operation capabilities, from a stealthy, clandestine platform…and as if this wasn’t enough, we have trillions of dollars worth of fighter jets ready to bomb the living hell out of North Korea if we need to.
Just this set of fighter jets alone numbers over 2,000—they have a max speed of 1,200 mph, a max altitude of 50,000 feet, and they can travel for over 1,350 miles on internal fuel tanks alone.
The United States spends nearly $600 billion dollars a year on our military, with this number expected to grow under Donald Trump. China, coming in at second place, spends $215 billion a year on their military.
What about North Korea? They’re not even ranking, coming in at $1.2 billion dollars annually. We spend 600x more than they do on our military, and it’s time to put Kim Jong Un in his place.
