North Korea says it has final approval to launch ‘merciless’ strike on the U.S.
The North Korean army said on Wednesday that it had final approval to launch a “merciless” strike on the United States, AFP reported.
“The merciless operation of [our] revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified,” the statement published by the official North Korean news agency said.
The statement also said that war could break out in the Korean peninsula either today or tomorrow.
In the face of escalating threats from North Korea, the Pentagon said Wednesday it will deploy a missile defense system to Guam to strengthen the Asia-Pacific region’s protections against a possible attack. (UNG YEON-JE/AFP/Getty Images)
