The North Korean regime threatened the United States with all-out nuclear war on Thursday, saying they were prepared to launch an “immense volley” of warheads towards the US mainland as American warships steamed off the Korean coastline.
The communist nation warned the “Rabid man in the White House” to prepare for “an unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time,” said a statement released by the Korean state-run news agency.
“The U.S. is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones. The U.S. should expect that it would face unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time,” read the statement.
“From the very day of the birth of the DPRK, its people have experienced sanctions and pressure, a war without gunfire. The US is different from the DPRK. Historically, it is the chieftain persistently threatening the DPRK,” added the official.
