The war of words continues between Donald Trump and the regime of Kim Jong-un. For the second day in a row, in response to the US President’s latest statement, North Korea has threatened to strike with a ballistic missile near the island of Guam, an unincorporated US territory that has a base Naval base and an American air base. The number one Pentagon reacted.

An unusual warning message from the South Korean army following simple verbal threats from Pyongyang. Sign that the tensions seem to reach a new peak on the Korean Peninsula.
Kim faces “the destruction of his people “
On Wednesday, after a new threat from Pyongyang, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned Kim against any decision that would ” lead to the end of his regime and the destruction of his people.”
He was responding to the Commander of the Korean People’s Army (APC) Strategic Forces, who said that his country was scrutinizing the possibility of firing four intermediate-range ballistic missiles simultaneously.
The latter could take the lead, said General Kim Rak-gyom, of the American island of Guam, located in the Pacific. And to conclude that the plan of attack would be completed by mid-August, according to the KCNA news agency.
Donald Trump is ” devoid of reason “
The repeated warnings of the United States, therefore, seem, for the moment, only to reinforce the warlike rhetoric of the regime of Kim Jong-un. And that, while Donald Trump himself is showing more and more aggressive.
Thus, after promising “fire ” and “anger “ to North Korea, the president of the United States has praised the merits of the US nuclear arsenal, presenting it as ” stronger and more powerful ” than ever.
The announcement of General Kim Rak-gyom would have fallen within hours, according to KCNA. And the latter would have pointed out that the tenant of the White House was ” devoid of reason “, and that only the force worked with him.
“North Korea will not give up “
