North Korea Threatens Trump-U.S. with 6 Nukes

Kim Jong Un seems disturbed by the news CIA established an intelligence gathering operation in South Korea.  Pyongyang response was outrage after accusing the U.S. last week of conspiring to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.  Kim assumed authoritarian control of his father’s seat after his death in 2011.  Since then Kim seems obsessed with becoming a world nuclear power increasing ICBM testing capable of carrying nuclear warheads.  President Donald Trump ordered the U.S.S. Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Fleet to patrol the southern seas of Korea.  President Trump ordered the deployment of Global Hawk Drones to Japan on May 2.  GHD’s will be used to keep more detailed surveillance on North Korean military movements.  Live fire Apache helicopter missions have been conducted by the U.S. Air Force in South Korea to prep for possible conflicts on the ground with North Korea.  Even though the U.S. planned years before to test 2 unarmed Minuteman 3 ICBM’s in the south Pacific ocean, Kim Jong Un appears to see that as aggressive military actions by the U.S. Intelligence sources say North Korea is storing up to 20 nuclear warheads and thousands of ballistic missiles.  North Korea at this time isn’t considered a real threat for nuclear delivery.  If Kim continues testing at this rate he could have nuclear delivery achieved by 2020.  Pyongyang officials say that Kim will speed up testing at an accelerated rate if the U.S. continues their aggressive military movements towards North Korea.  Pyongyang also said,”Nuclear testing will be conducted at times and places our Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un decides.
