#North Korea has finalized the probable date of its #Nuclear Strike on the #United States on July 27 which is the 64th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement when Kim Jong Un’s country will celebrate Victory Day. Government sources in South Korea have confirmed to a section of the media that preparations have started at the launch site to move the ICBM in place.

In spite of international sanctions, Kim has gone ahead with his agenda of developing missiles that can reach the mainland of America. President Donald Trump wanted China to convince Kim from pursuing his nuclear ambitions, but that strategy has not helped, and North Korea has finalized a date for the strike.

Reactions from the U.S.

Daily Mail UK reports that the threat is a fallout of certain comments made by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He had said that the Trump administration must separate the regime of Kim Jong Un from the system and had also added that the people of North Korea would love to see a change. These remarks have not gone down well with Pyongyang, hence, the latest threat.

In the opinion of experts, if at all Kim has plans to launch a missile, it could be either an intermediate-range missile or North Korea's ICBM, and it could target Alaska. In case that happens, it would be the second time Pyongyang has tested such a missile after its July 4 rocket launch. Officials in the United States feel that the country has reached a stage where it has indicated a specific date for the nuclear strike, and it could be in a position to target other continents within just a very short period.

What does the future have in store?

It is difficult to know what exactly is happening in North Korea because it is isolated from the world and outsiders are not welcome. Therefore, whatever little is known is based on hearsay and satellite images. After the launch of its missile on July 4, independent experts had remarked that its ability was limited and it could not carry a nuclear payload across the Pacific. That thinking may no longer be valid because it has threatened a nuclear strike on America.

Apparently, these have led to a reassessment of the scenario. The nuclear and ballistic missile program of North Korea is now a matter of concern for not only the United States but for its allies in the region, as well as the whole world. Any nuclear strike would amount to a confrontation, and it is time for Kim’s friends to talk him out of pressing the button that could create an irreversible situation akin to a World War.
