North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is back in the international spotlight. This time, North Korean officials are claiming the Central Intelligence Agency is plotting to assassinate the their leader with “biochemical substances.” The North Korean Ministry of Defense made the allegations, which were published by the country’s state-run media.

The move to assassinate Kim Jong-Unis being characterized as a “last-ditch effort” by American “imperialists” that’s “beyond the limits.”
A CIA decapitation plot would seem unusual. Yet the Trump administration has ramped up preparations for military conflict with North Korea as the country continues to flaunt United Nations security council resolutions by planning and carrying out both missile launches and nuclear tests.
The new claims argue that the CIA is working with the South Koreas Intelligence Services. They’ve “hatched a vicious plot” to take out Kim while he was making public appearances in Pyongyang.
There is, of course, no verifiable confirmation of these claims. The “America-is-threatening-us” propaganda message is ever present in North Korea.
USA Today published a translation of the propaganda message that said Kim was to be targeted by a bomb while “at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and at a military parade and public procession after his return home.”This particular parade occurred on April 15th.
The mission was to be carried out by a North Korean national who had been recruited to work for the CIA, but his mission was supposedly a failure.
“The murderous demons of the IS who conspired with the CIA ideologically corrupted and bribed a DPRK citizen surnamed Kim, the then worker of the timber industrial branch in the Khabarovsk Territory of Russia in June 2014, and turned him into a terrorist full of repugnance and revenge,” the North Korean statement read.
The bomb this terrorist was supposedly going to use contained a “radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance.” The CIA supposedly paid this terrorist “over 20,000 U.S. dollars on two occasions and a satellite transmitter-receiver (that enabled) him (to) get versed in it.”
Will North Korea tolerate such heinous assassination attempts? Of course not. They promise to “ferret out and mercilessly destroy the last one (of) the terrorists of the U.S. CIA and the puppet IS of South Korea targeting the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership.”
Their bellicose rhetoric didn’t end their. They declared the assassination attempt to be a declaration of war. As of yet, no shots have been fired.
Here’s part of the statement regarding their intentions:
“Korean-style anti-terrorist attack will be commenced from this moment to sweep away the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the U.S. imperialists and the puppet clique, the most mean and brutal hideous terrorist group in the world.”
“Even though we wipe out all those villains involved in the recent hideous state-sponsored terrorism, there is no vouch that the enemies would stop maneuvering as long as the chieftains and the plot-breeding bases remain.”
“It is not a secret that the U.S. imperialists and the puppet group of traitors are getting all the more reckless with each passing day and their moves are spearheaded against the supreme headquarters of the Korean revolution.”
“It is as clear as noonday that such heinous crime targeting the supreme headquarters of the Korean revolution would continue to be attempted, as long as the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors remain unchanged in their hostile policy toward the DPRK and there are CIA and IS running amuck as a spearhead in executing the policy.”
“Therefore, it is our determination to root up all the dens of plot and trick like CIA and IS, the source of all evils in the world, and a series of more powerful our-style anti-terrorism striking actions will begin immediately.”
