US warns North Korea would be ‘utterly destroyed’ as nations move closer to war

The United Nations Security Council hosts a meeting regarding the latest North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile launch.

Speaking to the UN Security Council, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said that “if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed”.

She added: “We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it. If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday.”

The statements come after the hermit kingdom launched their most powerful missile yet this week.

Latest North Korea missile could hit entire US mainland

The test marks a significant step forward for the Kim regime, putting the entirety of the mainland US and Britain within range.

North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) claimed that the Hwasong-15 was “tipped with super-large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the US”.

Nuclear experts have said North Korea has yet to deliver a nuclear warhead on top of an ICBM, but it is likely this will happen soon.

President Trump took a rhetorical shot at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un on Wednesday, calling him ‘a sick puppy’.

Trump had said earlier in the day that he plans to slap North Korea with ‘major’ new sanctions after Tuesday’s missile launch.

  1. Yes, there are times, when even a ” sick puppy ” has to be put down.
    From here; the USA will only appear very weak; delaying the decision.
    ……………………………………………
    Any weakness, also undermines America’s position of power with Iran.
