According to a North Korea defector, dear leader “crazy fat kid” cheese obsessed Kim Jong-un is crazy enough to use its country’s nukes if SHTF.
The defector is a senior North Korean official and he told NBC News that the Pyongyang despotic regime is prepared to use nukes against US and its allies, as Kim Jong-un is “desperate” enough not to care anymore.
As the most high profile defector from North Korea for the last couple of decades, Thae Yong Ho can provide us with a rare insight into Kim Jong-un’s authoritarian and highly secretive regime. Of course, if Thae Yong Ho is telling the truth.
According to the defector, Kim Jong-un, who was educated in the West, in Switzerland of all places and he seemed to love American basketball and everything western (or at least he used to in the past) is, let me quote:
“desperate in maintaining his rule by relying on his [development of] nuclear weapons and ICBM.”
The acronym ICBM stands for intercontinental ballistic missile and it depicts a long range weapon that theoretically speaking could strike US mainland.
The former North Korean diplomat who defected to South Korea after living in London for a number of years with his family as the deputy ambassador to the UK believes that the PyongYang regime is capable of launching an ICBM despite the fact that he wasn’t directly involved in the country’s weapons programs.
“Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM,”
It is estimated that North Korea may have 8 or even more nuclear weapons, yet so far it doesn’t seem capable of attaching the nukes to any long range device, such as an ICBM, which is theoretically capable of hitting US, not to mention Japan or South Korea.
Admiral Scott Swift who is the US Pacific Fleet commander said earlier that US officials are very worried by Kim’s latest threat:
“They have the nuclear capability — they’ve demonstrated that. And then, where they’re going with the miniaturization of that, whether they can actually weaponize a missile, that’s what’s driving the current concern.”
Thae warned the West to be prepared for anything (for the worst basically):
“If Kim Jong Un has nuclear weapons and ICBMs, he can do anything. So, I think the world should be ready to deal with this kind of person.”
Kim Jong Un is a man who can do anything beyond the normal imagination; the final and the real solution to the North Korean nuclear issue is to eliminate Kim Jong Un from the post.”
