America To N/Korea: 'We’ll Utterly Destroy You'
Either North Korean President, Kim Jong-Un, aka the Rocket Man is indestructible, or he is toying with fire. The world would find out soon.
A day after the Rocket Man boasted that his country has attained nuclear power status, the world’s policeman, the United States has warned that North Korea’s leadership would be “utterly destroyed” if war were to break out.
North Korea fired its most advanced missile on Monday putting the U.S. mainland within range, in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
The Trump administration has repeatedly said all options are on the table in dealing with North Korea’s ballistic and nuclear weapons programmes, including military ones, but that it still prefers a diplomatic option.
Speaking at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States has never sought war with North Korea.
“If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday,” she said. “...and if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.”
Haley said the United States has asked China to cut off oil supply to North Korea, a drastic step that Beijing - the North’s neighbour and sole major trading partner - has so far refrained from doing.
Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping talked on the phone earlier on Wednesday.
