Millions of North Korean citizens have vowed to become ‘human bombs’ in the event of a war with the United States.
Record numbers of civilians gathered in Pyongyang on Thursday at a huge rally held to show support for Kim Jong-un’s crusade against President Trump and America.
Express.co.uk reports: The huge crowd held their fists in the air, waved provocative banners, chanted in unison and marched through Pyongyang as dictator Kim Jong-un announced he would send four missiles towards the US territory of Guam.
Many of those pictured in the crowd appeared malnourished and wearing ill-fitting clothes, an indication of the hunger in North Korea.
One banner held by the adoring crowd called for war.
The bizarre slogan read: “Let’s become bullets and bombs devotedly defending respected Supreme Leader Comrade Kim Jong Un!”
Another pro-Kim banner said: “We fully support the statement of the DPRK government categorically rejecting the ‘sanctions resolution’ against the DPRK.”
Kim’s administration used the rally as an opportunity to spew another sabre-rattling threat to the USA.
A spokesman for the State Affairs Commission said: “We will further increase the might of justice to wipe out the source of all injustice and evils now that the gangster-like acts of the US have reached the height, and clearly show what miserable and wretched fate those standing in the way of the DPRK will have to face.”
The rally was held after Kim’s one-party government announced plans to launch four missile at Guam sometime next week.
A state-run news programme host announced: “The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA [Korean People’s Army] will cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan, flying 2,089 miles for 1,065 seconds before hitting the waters 30 to 40 km away from Guam.”
It comes after US president Donald Trump promised “fire and fury” if Kim continues to threaten the West following a series of missile tests.
This warning was almost immediately undermined when the rogue state promised to attack Guam.
While most past US leaders have ignored North Korea’s regular threats, Mr Trump has taken the opposite approach which has seen the situation escalate dramatically.
This stance has been blasted by Washington heavyweights, including John McCain who accused Mr Trump of having his bluff called.
He said: “I take exception to the President’s comments because you’ve got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do,”
“The great leaders I’ve seen don’t threaten unless they’re ready to act and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act.”
