Kim Jong Un Just Threatened America In His New Year's Address, And We're Not Okay

2017 was a very tense year between America and North Korea or more specifically, President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. And now it looks as though 2018 may go from tense to nuclear

For most of his first year in office '45 spent a decent amount of time antagonizing an unhinged world leader all to show the brutish force of of the United States. Now the North Korean force has spoken back with a clear and dangerous New Year's statement. 

In an address broadcasted on state television Kim Jong Un stated :

"The entire mainland of the U.S. is within the range of our nuclear weapons and the nuclear button is always on the desk of my office. They should accurately be aware that this is not a threat but a reality,” he followed with "the U.S. would not dare to take any military action against Pyongyang because they know that now we possess such great nuclear power.” 



In 2017 North Korea brazenly fired 23 missiles and performed powerful nuclear testing, even against threats of retaliation from The Trump administration.

Recently, Adm. Mike Mullen, a former member of the Joint Chief of Staffs, issued a warning saying that the U.S. is “closer to a nuclear war with North Korea than ever."

As if everyone's nerves aren't already frayed. Twitter had a few things to add. 

Is there no way these two can stop playing whose rockets are bigger? Can 2018 be about peace or at the very least... quiet?
