After the mounting threats from North Korea of a ‘super-mighty preemptive strike’ and an active H-Bomb, Kim Jong Un’s state media has claimed their military operation has already been deployed.
The communist country’s armed forces minister, Pak Yong-sik, has confirmed that the ‘nuclear weapons capable of striking US military bases in Asia-Pacific areas and the Us homeland are fully prepared to be fired from launchers’, the Express reports.
President Donald Trump has taken the dictator’s nuclear threats seriously and has called the entire US Senate to the White House for a briefing on North Korea.
Kim Jong-un is showing no sign of backing down after refusing to stop nuclear weapons production and vowing to reduce the US ‘to ash’.
After Kim Jong Un’s failed nuclear test and, Trump sent an ‘armada’ to northern Australia to position themselves strongly against North Korea and act as a warning.
A Pentagon spokesman said:
We call on North Korea to refrain from provocative, destabilising actions and rhetoric, and to make strategic choice to fulfil its international obligations and commitments and return to serious talks.
North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs represent a clear, grave threat to US national security.
In recent months North Korea has refused to buckle to international pressure and continued to develop both its nuclear and test missiles.
So where can North Korea currently hit with their missiles? Well according to the George C Marshall Institute here’s the maximum hypothetical range of the four intercontinental missiles used by the North.
The briefing in Washington will take place on Wednesday and involve 100 senators.
China, North Korea’s main ally, has called for both sides to avoid any actions that would increase tensions in the region.
