Say one thing for Kim Jong un and his Hermit Kingdom: he/it makes the most vile, preposterous and outrageous threats in the most entertaining manner possible. Inadvertently.
North Korea has been ever more frequently and aggressively thumbing its nose at world opinion in its now frantic attempts to develop a viable nuclear weapons program with which it can terrorize South Korea, Japan, and the United States, among others. Therefore, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence recently matter-of-factly stated that the “era of strategic patience” with North Korea is over.
This led to the North’s state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper publishing the government’s ‘official’ response to Pence’s assertion: “In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes.”
Memo to the Ultra-Corpulent One: Your “super-mighty” preemptive strike is going to “completely and immediately” wipe out the U.S. mainland? At minimum, that would require your missiles not blowing up on the launching pad. Suggest using your “intimidating-superpowers” to prevent massive numbers of your comrades from dying of starvation, instead. Otherwise your “stupendously-obnoxious” behavior and “overpowering-odiousness” is going to get you “muscularly-killed.”
Just being “indomitably-truthful,” Dear-Leader.
