North Korea issued another threat to the American military on Monday.
In their latest stunt, they threatened to sink the USS Michigan, a submarine that is currently deployed in the Korean Peninsula.
The DPRK issued this mouthful of a statement:
“The moment the USS Michigan tries to budge even a little, it will be doomed to face the miserable fate of becoming a underwater ghost without being able to come to the surface,” a statement on a North Korean propaganda website read.
“The urgent fielding of the nuclear submarine in the waters off the Korean Peninsula, timed to coincide with the deployment of the super aircraft carrier strike group, is intended to further intensify military threats toward our republic,” the statement continued.
They added that “whether it’s a nuclear aircraft carrier or a nuclear submarine, they will be turned into a mass of scrap metal in front of our invincible military power centered on the self-defense nuclear deterrence.”
Previously, the North Koreans threatened the United States, saying they were ready to retaliate at any moment.
“Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,” North Korean state media said, according to The Daily Caller. They added such an attack would be an “example to show our military force.”
Hopefully President Donald Trump will show the North Koreans what real military strength looks like. It is unacceptable that they continue to threaten the West and get away with it.
