North Korean Leader, Kim Jung-un, released photos on state-run Rodong newspaper of alleged plans to attack various targets across the United States.
In the first photo, he is seen signing the document authorizing rocket forces to be on stand by should he give the order to fire. It’s not clear if the plans were just as part of his propaganda scheme to convince North Koreans that he plans to attack the United States or if these are his actual targets of interest. Some of the targeted locations include Hawaii, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Austin, Texas, and what appears to be Mexico.
The Telegraph also has a follow up, posting a rumored comment that an “outbreak of war probably only hours away”. This comes after US B-2 Stealth Bombers were deployed in South Korean airspace to monitor North Korean activity.
In the event of any “reckless” US provocation, North Korean forces should “mercilessly strike the US mainland … military bases in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea”, he was quoted as saying by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
There have been mixed reactions about the situation, some being concerned about the ripple effect that could happen if Kim Jung-un does give the order to fire, but most folks across various social media networks seemed to have come to the conclusion that these are his planned restaurant locations he wants to visit if he ever travels the US in the future.
