North Korea is a danger to the world. North Korea will launch a powerful nuclear hammer at the heart of the United States if President Trump attempts a regime change in Pyongyang, North Koreas state news agency warned Tuesday. The statement comes amid heightening tension between the two nations, including a recent intercontinental ballistic missile launch showing the rogue state has the capacity to deliver a nuclear warhead as far as Alaska - as well as shows of force by the US Air Force and Navy, and recent comments by CIA Director Mike Pompeo at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado last week.
Although Pompeo did not explicitly state that regime change is on the table, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) stated that his remarks have gone over the line, and it has now become clear that the ultimate aim of the Trump Administration is the regime change. Therefore, the North Korean news agency warned that even the slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership will lead to a merciless blow with its powerful nuclear hammer.
Pompeo, however, barely alluded to regime change
in an interview where he focused on the importance of separating the
regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from his burgeoning nuclear arsenal.
These weapons systems still need development and testing, said Pompeo,
to the extent we can convince China its in its best interest to help
us convince Kim its not in his best interest to move down that path. There
are lots of ways to narrow the (nuclear) capacity band. Pompeo said
the subject of North Korea comes up in almost every meeting he has with
Trump. And he said the CIA is working on a wide range of options
to deal with the threat, and those answers will be delivered almost certainly
alongside our partners at the Department of Defense.
