The North Korean dictator, who calls himself the communist country’s “supreme leader,” decided to threaten Americans again. Since Kim Jong-un’s missile launches are failing, and he’s been busted for allegedly having fake missiles in his parades, he apparently had to do something to continue ratcheting up tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. Here’s what the fat kid wants to do now.
According to Townhall, a North Korean defector is speaking up about Kim Jong-un’s threats against Americans. Ung-gil Lee told Daily Mail that if the U.S. attacks the rogue nation, a special forces group will be sent to South Korea as a show of strength. Special forces are likely the only thing left in North Korea’s arsenal after their missile test launches continue to fail in epic fashion. Kim Jong-un’s special forces group will be armed with deadly nerve agents in an attempt to fulfill the threat.
The nerve agents are meant to help the North Korean dictator’s special forces group kidnap Americans in South Korea. The group would then somehow kill the Americans that they manage to kidnap. They have their sights set on tourists, businesspeople, and diplomats visiting South Korea, according to Ung-gil Lee.
“The best case [for his old unit] would be to round them up and take them north, but if not they will take the foreigners hostage in South Korea. But they will all be killed, come what may – this goes hand in hand with assassination,” Lee, who served in one of these special forces units for six years, told Daily Mail.
Lee also has a warning for President Donald Trump. His advice to our president is to leave Kim Jong-un alone unless he can completely dispatch the dictator. Lee claims Kim Jong-Un will respond very differently than Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. “He [Kim] is going to fight back and use all retaliatory measures. Unless Trump thinks he can get rid of him, he must not carry out an attack,” he explained.
The suggestion to assassinate Kim Jong-un have swirled among some of the intelligence community’s advisors to the president. While the dictator’s threats could be empty, they should also be taken with a little more than the proverbial grain of salt because North Korea has a long history of kidnapping people for a number of reasons. In 2002, Kim Jong Il admitted that his special forces got “carried away by a reckless quest for glory” in their kidnapping of 12 people from Japan during the 1970s and 1980s. “It was regretful and I want to frankly apologize,” the late leader told then-Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi.
According to Human Rights Watch, North Korean agents have also kidnapped people from South Korea as well as “China, Thailand, Europe, and the Middle East.” It isn’t clear if any of these kidnapees have been killed or were tortured, but that seems a likely scenario considering Kim Jong-un’s inability to act like an adult or show any type of concern for innocent lives if he sees a political gain.
Political posturing isn’t Kim’s strong suit. His military fakes missiles and can’t produce a successful missile launch test. Maybe threats are all the dictator has left in his bag of tricks, but we still shouldn’t fear the fat kid in North Korea. He’s simply acting tough again in response to a militarily efficient United States. When push comes to shove, the whiny tyrant will crumble like the cake crumbs stuck to his coat.
