North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un released a video on Saturday that showed his troops blowing up a U.S. carrier. This is one of several threatening videos released by the North Korean state media.
“A knife will be stabbed into the throat of the carrier,” the video narrator says, according to Yonhap News Agency, “while the bomber will fall from the sky after getting hit by a hail of fire.”
According to the Daily Mail, Jong-Un is been upset over military drills the United States has been performing with South Korea in the past few weeks. He recently threatened that America would be reduced “to ashes” if either country fires “even a single bullet” in North Korea’s territory.
His full statement released in early March read:
“The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the south Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK.”
The Daily Mail reports the Uriminzokkiri YouTube page, where the new controversial video was released, has also published other clips which show North Korean troops bombing America.
The recent video comes as North Korea has been testing a rocket engine designed for missiles. The Daily Mail reports government officials believe North Korea is attempting to create nuclear-warhead missiles that can reach the U.S.
“This was a comprehensive test for the first-stage rocket for an ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile), and that is why it was dangerous,” said Kim Dong-yup, an analyst at Seoul’s Institute for Far Eastern Studies. “It appears that North Korea has worked out much of its development of the first-stage rocket booster.”
President Donald Trump told media outlets that North Korea was part of his discussion with officials this past weekend in Florida. According to the Daily Mail, he did not specifically talk about the rocket-engine test but did say Kim Jong-Un was “acting very, very badly.”
China has not been involved in much of the controversy with North Korea; however, the country has advised North Korea to stop its missile testing while also advising the United States and South Korea to stop the military exercises.
