Pictures from the rally in Pyongyang, demonstrated the sentiment that America is the enemy and must be destroyed. In the image above, the signs from left to right read “Strike the United States with nuclear thunderbolt!.” “Those who touch us will not escape death” and “A revenge attack of annihilation.” Other citizens marched with communist flags, in front of a military band.
Tensions between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un continue to escalate in recent weeks and neither of the men show any signs of relenting. The stock market took a sharp 100- point dip last Thursday as a result of the ongoing stand-off. That Tuesday, President Trump issued an impromptu warning to North Korea, to stop making threats against the U.S.
“North Korea had best not make any more threats to the United States,” said the President. “He has been very threatening beyond a normal state. And as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.” However, North Korea has failed to heed the warnings, threatening to strike Guam.
Recent reports suggested that North Korea’s army will complete the plans in mid-August, when they will be ready for leader Kim Jong Un’s order, state-run KCNA news agency reported. General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean People’s Army stated detailed plans include firing a salvo of four missiles towards the US territory. The missiles are expected to land in the sea only 30-40 km (18-25 miles) from the island.
