In a scathing 2,000-word editorial published by Kim Jong-un’s state media agency KNCA, Pyongyang condemned President Trump’s decision to dispatch naval forces to the Japan Sea, and promised victory for the DPRK.
Alarmingly, the hermit nation’s military commander said the White House would be “reduced to ashes”, as the editorial claimed the US was planning to destroy Pyongyang.
The editorial read: “This is a stern warning to the US imperialists and their stooges running amuck for aggression and war moves.
“The world will clearly witness how the crime-woven history of the US 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 article also claimed 330,000 US soldiers took part in military drills designed to rehearse an “all-out war” with North Korea.
The piece pledged that Pyongyang “will retaliate” and “the crime-woven history of the US imperialists will be over”.
The propaganda arm let rip at US forces with a barrage of insults branding soldiers “murderous ogres”, “robbers”, “air pirates” and “warriors who master the occult arts”.
North Korea also accused the US of being a “hotbed of evil” which needed to be hit with an “indiscriminate preemptive nuclear strike” to transform the superpower into “something that cannot come back to life again”.
The despotic nation also claimed the war drills Key Resolve and Foal Eagle were “hideous state-sponsored terrorism” and “the most vicious and adventurous in history”.
Tensions between North Korea and the US show no signs of cooling after the rogue state this week accused the CIA of plotting to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
