Where would North Korea be without their insane power-hungry dictator Kim Jong-Un? Would it ease the tensions in the area? That’s the question many are asking with the news from North Korea that they have allegedly uncovered a plot to assassinate Kim. According to the accusations, the plot is supposedly a joint effort of the US CIA and South Korea’s National Intelligence Service.
In a region already tense over nuclear threats, North Korea accused the South Korean and American intelligence agencies on Friday of plotting to assassinate its leader, Kim Jong-un, and it warned of an unspecified counterattack.
North Korea recently uncovered a “hideous terrorists’ group” that the National Intelligence Service of South Korea, working with the C.I.A., had sent into the North on a secret mission to kill Mr. Kim with biochemical agents, said a spokesman for the North’s Ministry of State Security.
In a statement carried by the North’s official news agency, KCNA, the unidentified spokesman said the National Intelligence Service had hired a North Korean logger working in Khabarovsk, in the Russian Far East, in 2014 to prepare for “state-sponsored terrorism.”
No one can believe anything that comes from North Korea, so at the moment, they are nothing but allegations. However, it would not be the first time that the CIA has been involved with the removal of a world leader or toppling a regime. The Big question now is what will North Korea do in retaliation, especially knowing that Trump will traveling to Europe and the Middle East later this month.
