North Korean Vows To Wipe Out US
An official North Korean website has reportedly warned, today (Monday 24th), it will “wipe out” the United States if Washington starts a war on the peninsula.
The US supercarrier Carl Vinson will arrive in waters off the Korean peninsula “in a matter of days”, US Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday, amid reports the North could be preparing a sixth nuclear test.
Pyongyang is still believed to be far from reaching its aim of building a missile capable of reaching the US mainland, but the secretive nation has ramped up its rhetoric in recent weeks and has carried out two rocket tests this month alone.
US officials have repeatedly warned that “all options are on the table” to curb the North’s weapons ambitions, including military strikes.
