ALERT: North Korea Issues TERRIFYING Statement to United States

North Korea has continued to push the envelope, despite efforts from the international community to rein in their threats and aggression. But so far, nothing seems to work. North Korea has not only launched another ballistic missile, but they are also warning that they have a special “gift” for the United States.

On Monday, North Korea launched a modified Scud-class missile, controlled by a precision guidance system, and overseen by Kim Jong Un himself. The country’s official KCNA news agency announced the news and said that Kim had ordered the development of more powerful weapons as well.

The missile launched on Monday is already more developed than prior missiles, this time equipped with an advanced automated pre-launch sequence, which previous versions of the “Hwasong” rockets lacked. The missile landed in the sea off the east coast of North Korea and occurred despite threats of more sanctions from the international community.

“He expressed the conviction that it would make a greater leap forward in this spirit to send a bigger ‘gift package’ to the Yankees,” the KCNA reported that Kim Jong Un had said. It is allegedly in retaliation for “American provocation.”

Meanwhile, South Korea continues to work with the United States, conducting a joint drill with a U.S. supersonic B-1B Lancer bomber. The USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group has also planned a drill with another carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan, near the Korean peninsula.

In the last several weeks, North Korea has also conducted two successful medium-to-long-range missile tests, with the hope of eventually developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the United States. Donald Trump responded on Twitter, but otherwise has not given any sign of how he plans to respond:

How do you think Trump should handle the North Korean threat?
