A spokesman for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s government has issued a threatening message to the United States as a carrier strike group attached to the USS Carl Vinson has been making its way toward the Korean Peninsula, according to Fox News.
On Monday, the state-run Korean Central News Agency issued a quote from a spokesman for North Korean’s foreign ministry, and it’s nothing less than provocative.
“We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions,” the spokesman said, according to Fox.
“This goes to prove that the U.S. reckless moves for invading the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) have reached a serious phase of its scenario. If the U.S. dares opt for a military action, crying out for ‘preemptive attack’ and ‘removal of the headquarters,’ the DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S.”
In other words, bring it on.
Tensions continue to mount in the area as the South Koreans and Americans hold annual large-scale war games, and North Korea violates U.N. resolutions by launching missiles, Fox reported.
