United States preparing for war against North Korea, Gordon Chang says


North Korea and the United States have been increasingly threatening each-other, and it does not help to have the United Nations continue to imposed harsh and harsher sanctions against North Korea.

Earlier this year, Kim Jong-un, the Supreme leader of North Korea stated that the country has evolved itself as a fully fledged nuclear power, with atom bombs, hydrogen bombs, and inter continent ballistic missiles in their arsenal.

"The US gangster-like moves for domination, subjugation, aggression and war are getting even more reckless and unsafe in the wake of the frenzy of war-thirsty (US President Donald) Trump who spat out the remarks of "total destruction of North Korea" without hesitation", state-run KCNA agency quoted a spokesman for the National Peace Committee of North Korea as saying.

Kim issued a strong warning stating that the entire U.S. mainland is in their firing territory, and in case of any wrong deed by Trump, the United States will not be able to escape from severe punishment.

Following North Korea's sixth nuclear test in September, US President Donald Trump said the US is "totally prepared" for military action against the North, if the situation surrounding the nuclear issue escalates.

Instead, Kim said, all nuclear states are accelerating the modernization of their weapons and "reviving a nuclear arms race reminiscent of (the) Cold War era".
