According to reports, the U.S. is on the verge of a preemptive strike against North Korea if officials think that the rogue nation will follow through with a nuclear weapons test.
NBC News just announced that several senior U.S. intelligence officials said that the U.S. is prepared to dispatch the strike against North Korea with non-nuclear weapons.
These officials also said that North Korea’s nuclear test could be as early as this weekend, as reported by NBC.

The U.S. military has two navy destroyers in the immediate area that can fire Tomahawk cruise missiles like the ones fired in Syria. One of these destroyers is located just 300 miles from the North Korean nuclear test area.
It is also known that American heavy bombers located in Guam are on ready alert. It had been reported earlier that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier was also headed to that area.
North Korea, in response today, issued a warning to the U.S. They said there will be a “merciless retaliatory strike” if the US follows through on their strike.
“By relentlessly bringing in a number of strategic nuclear assets to the Korean peninsula, the US is gravely threatening the peace and safety and driving the situation to the brink of a nuclear war,” North Korea’s statement said.
What in the world is wrong with Trump? He just wants to lauch these attacks to prove himself as President. North Korea is not playing with us, and we’re about to lose thousands of our men and women from a senseless war!
