The U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six is reportedly drilling with a South Korean “assassination squad” that would take out North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in the event of war, according to multiple reports.
SEAL Team Six is famous for taking out Osama bin Laden in 2011 in Pakistan.
The South Korean Defense Minister, Song Young-moo, said the assassination squad should be ready in December, and that it is meant to “neutralize ‘command and control’ systems in the North,” according to a report.
The Defense Ministry is calling its assassination plan “Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation (KMPR),” according to the report, and the plan is a “‘three-axis system’ that includes Seoul’s homegrown anti-missile systems, the Korean Air and Missile Defense [KAMD] and Kill Chain, a pre-emptive strike system.”
North Korea recently tested its most powerful nuclear missile yet – and the nation led by dictator Kim Jong Un now says it has more “gift packages” for the United States.
This comes after South Korea has also warned that North Korea has another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) that it will fire.
North Korea’s sixth nuclear missile test caused a 6.3 earthquake and was roughly five times as large as the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan. The test came hours after North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un claimed that it now had an H-bomb to put onto its long-range ICBMs.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said Monday that North Korea is “begging for war,” and that it’s time for the international community to impose the strongest possible sanctions against North Korea.
