Tensions continue to escalate in the spat between North Korea and the United States.
Following comments by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who stated that the US would continue to pressure North Korea to cease activity with its nuclear program, Kim Jung-un responded with newfound bombastic claims.
The Lunatic and the oft maniacal North Korean leader took the next stab in the ongoing war of words with the United States, claiming that North Korea would reduce the US to ashes with a “super-mighty preemptive strike.”
Meanwhile, President Trump and the US government have hinted at their own preemptive strike. While similar spats have occurred with Pyongyang for decades, one could certainly argue the current state of affairs is dangerously closer to the tipping point than we have been before.
