North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un isn’t exactly playing with a full deck of cards.
In a weird statement, he threatened to send 500,000 women to the front line if a conflict breaks out.
Critics are still trying to figure out what Jong-Un’s latest threat really meant.
According to the U.K. Sun, a defector suggested that there were more than 500,000 women serving in North Korea’s army, 40 percent of the country’s total soldiers.
“In the contest, Kim stressed the significance of training women soldiers for the ‘great war for national unification’ and of preparing all gunners to be able to fight anywhere and any time, said the KCNA,” The Sun reported.
Conservative Tribune reports:
It has also been widely reported that Kim was heavily playing with the idea of goading the United States into a war blaming the U.S. for growing tensions. According to the U.K. Express, a statement last week from KCNA said, “It is just the U.S. which has pushed the situation on the peninsula to the brink of nuclear war,” adding that “No one in the world welcomes a gangster blackmailing the owner with a dagger.”
So Kim Jong Un’s response to the U.S., whom he believes is this blackmailing gangster, is to force women to fight his battles for him. He is willing to send them to the front lines to face the United States military head on.
