Many absurd and crazy claims have come out from the propaganda war machine of North Korea regarding its nuclear ambitions and ensuing tensions between the country and its neighbors Japan and South Korea, and the U.S. Now, comes the latest installment. North Korea has accused CIA and South Korean intelligence of attempting to kill its leader, Kim Jong- Un with a chemical weapons attack.
The rogue state is claiming that a "terrorist group" supported by the CIA and the South managed to cross the border with the intent of killing the North Korean dictator. North Korea is claiming that several chemicals "including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance" were used. They're saying that a North Korean citizen named "Kim" had been supposedly bribed by the U.S. to execute the assassination attempt on Kim. The North said the plan was to assassinate Kim on April 16 when the country celebrated the Day of the Sun, which also happens to be the birth anniversary of the nation's founder and Kim's grandfather.
The regime, however, did not clarify how they were able to detect and stop such assassination attempt on that day- if such really took place.
The regime of barbaric leader has threatened a "counter-terrorist attack" against U.S. and South Korean forces in retaliation for the alleged attack, according to Yonhap News. The North Korean security ministry said in a statement published by state media that they will ferret out and mercilessly destroy the last one the "terrorists" of the U.S. CIA. It also called its neighbor, South Korea, a "puppet" of the U.S.
The state did not identify the supposed "terrorist" group. The CIA and South Korea have both chosen not to respond to the wild allegations.
Tensions have risen to near 'boiling point' level between the U.S. and the isolated regime since the North threatened to carry out its sixth nuclear test and threatened "imminent" war against the U.S. The U.S. has called on the rest of the world to isolate North Korea diplomatically and economically to stop its nuclear program expansion, and has especially exerted pressure on China to do its crucial part in containing Kim's nuclear ambitions.
