North Korea threatens to ‘blow US from planet’


koreNORTH Korea has doubled down on its threat to annihilate the US, pledging to use its young people to “blow the US from this planet”.

Pyongyang City Youth League Committee first secretary Mun Chol vowed during the rally that “the young people in the country would become five million human bullets and bombs and nuclear warheads to blow the US from this planet”.

Participants at the rally held signs bearing slogans such as: “Strike the United States with nuclear thunderbolt”, “Those who touch us will not escape death”, “A revenge attack of annihilation”, “Let’s become bullets and bombs devotedly defending respected Supreme Leader Comrade Kim Jong-un!”

“We fully support the statement of the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] government categorically rejecting the ‘sanctions resolution’ against the DPRK!”

Workers’ Party of Korea member Kim Ki-nam also spoke at the rally, condemning the “shameless gangster-like” US and its allies for “cooking up” sanctions on the nation via the United Nations and saying it was “frightened at the might” of North Korea’s nuclear power.

“The DPRK’s access to the strongest nukes and rockets is a legitimate step to defend the destiny of the country and nation, and ensure the right to independent development,” he said.

Mr Kim said the US had falsely styled itself as the “only superpower in the world” and suggested that efforts to pressure it not to develop weapons would only encourage it further.
