Reports out of Seoul, South Korea are that there was a failed assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jung Un‘s life. The belief is that due to a power struggle in North Korea, the young leader is trying to unite his nation by using scare tactics such as war with the United States.
Although the source – who is well-informed about North Korean affairs according to South Korean media reports – did not reveal the exact timing of the incident or who was behind the attack, he said the move appeared to be related to the recent fall and rise of a powerful general, Kim Yong-chol.
Recently North Korea has stepped up its Media smear campaign against the United States in an effort to portray America as an evil nation. Several videos have been released, one showing America being hit with a long-range missile, as well as an inaccurate North Korea propaganda video showing living conditions in America.
Do you believe Kim Jon Un could be using war with America in an attempt to cool down the anti-establishment movement in North Korea?
