North Korea pledges to wage WAR against the United States

NORTH Korea has threatened to launch a pre-emptive strike against the United States today as the hermit nation marks the 64th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War. The anniversary has led to increased concerns the regime is planning another test to fire another intercontinental ballistic missile, believed to be capable of reaching the US mainland. With tensions escalating, it is feared North Korea could turn on neighbouring South Korea, following warnings from Kim Jong-un's regime that it is ready to strike The anniversary has led to increased concerns the regime is planning another test to fire another intercontinental ballistic missile, believed to be capable of reaching the US mainland. With tensions escalating, it is feared North Korea could turn on neighbouring South Korea, following warnings from Kim Jong-un's regime that it is ready to strike “without warning or prior notice”. The Korean War, in which the US fought alongside South Korea and China with the North, ended in a truce that has yet to be replaced by a peace agreement and has left the two sides technically at war. In recent days transporter vehicles carrying equipment used for firing ballistic missiles have been seen arriving in Kusong province. Kusong has been the site of North Korean missile tests in the past, including one held in May. That test saw a KN-17 intermediate range missile travel almost 500 miles before splashing down in the Sea of Japan/East Sea, hitting the water about 60 miles from Vladivostok in eastern Russia, according to US officials. Pyongyang, in its last major missile test, launched an intercontinental ballistic missile on July 4 - American Independence Day. The alert comes after officers from North Korea’s armed forces all participated in an oath ceremony on Tuesday, pledging to fight the US. Last week CIA director Mike Pompeo said the Trump administration needed to find a way to separate Kim Jong-un from his growing nuclear stockpile. Mr Pompeo said:

"As for the regime, I am hopeful we will find a way to separate that regime from this system.

“The North Korean people I'm sure are lovely people and would love to see him go."
