Kim Jong Un

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un goes nuclear -- and it might be for real this time.

The U.S. Navy is on high alert after Kim Jong Un ordered his military on standby to prepare for nuclear strikes on the U.S.

If there is a nuclear strike on the west coast of the United States, the radiation fallout alone would be catastrophic.

This is the latest in N. Korea's increasing threats of nuclear war on the U.S.

But while many say the N. Korean leader's threats aren't credible, U.S. officials tell CNN that they believe North Korea's claims of nuclear readiness are true because we can't afford to underestimate him.

"The threat here is, to me right now, it's a lot of bluster," said Philip Yun, who heads a group that advocates nuclear disarmament. "For them to deliver on a threat, they have to have intent and they have to have capability. And quite frankly, I don't think they have both."

CNN.com -- Yun told CNN the purpose of the news might be internal.

"Kim Jong Un has got a large party congress that's going to be happening in May. And this is all about, for him, again, additional consolidation of power. He'll want to get rid and justify getting rid of any enemies he may have.

"And this is part of a process where he is able to ratchet up the pressure, increase his control internally, and brandish his credentials to be 'protecting the motherland.' And so all of this sort of helps him internally even though it may not ring true to many of us here outside," he said.

  • just being me

    YARNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

  • n1kk1a

    I don't know how to feel about this.

  • Yoni

    I wonder what city and state they are aimed at.

  • raysorbladeczar

    smh!

  • LadyFrance

    They better leave that man-boy alone. They know he got daddy issues and unstable

  • SG

    I mean really!

  • Yoni

    I read that the/a knife was supposed to had been turned over YEARS ago by a construction worker.

    I've always said, OJ didn't do it.

  • iWasteTime

    It was the construction worker found it, gave it to a cop and the cop kept it as a memento.... TF!!

  • iWasteTime

    Kim Jung Un, point your weapon to where ever Trump is :)
    Please and thank you

  • SameoleJ

    Ain't this Mr. I can't pee or poop or was that him Daddy?!

  • sunni_daze

    His father was saying years ago that they could hit Cali, now he's saying it. My thing is why is our gov't worried about stealing oil instead of a man that has made numerous threat against this country. The US might be scared of NK. They never seem to ride on them like they do weaker gov'ts.

  • SameoleJ

    I think that was part of him Daddy issues with him....wanted a boy and got this young face serving bish.

  • LeBrick James

    Wars and rumors of wars.
    The devil is clearly trying to stir stuff up.

  • SameoleJ

    Whycome they even discussing this? Their very own law prevents him from being tried again and her family already did their civil suit. They better lock up this cop for withholding evidence and tampering with an investigation. Them killers been gone or dead!!

  • Ni Ni

    I always say that....they need to quit messing with kim and putin. I believe either one is capable of doing some serious damage to us.

  • Jusstlookn

    @disqus_u2cDTETVQH:disqus Sarrachin The White Lady - I bet Juice in Jail like GOTDAMN. This is tew murch and unbelievable now that this series is on. Well he's been tried, can't do double jeopardy.

  • Yoni

    Right. They've never just invaded their country looking for these weapons like they did all the others.

  • Yoni

    They'll try to find a way to make it happen.

  • MookieFly

    I think it's all talk. I think they some kind of weapon but I doubt it would make it across the pond before falling apart

  • mela.reign77

    What???!!! Please leave Tu Wong Foo alone, please and thank you!

  • Jusstlookn

    Can't believe frackle nackle bull smack

  • Full Monty

    They need to take him out of office literally

  • TheRealLee

    This man kills members of his own family when the mood strikes him. Now he wants to go to war against the US for no reason. His days need to be numbered by humanity. Time to call the Seals and take his ass out.

  • sunni_daze

    Becasue NK has nothing the US desires to steal.

  • Vonn

    Well, Imma eat a banana split today...just in case.

  • Yoni

    Even still, they have "weapons of mass destruction", no?

  • Yoni

    Whale since not too much is going on in HERE, I just want to say...I just watched a 30+ min video of the drama from the other day........ :eek: :popcorn:

  • Deno Spencer

    My grandparents told me about the Great Depression and how difficult it was around the Second World War. I'm nervous as heck to have a war here. Did you see how the gangs and thugs stole food and etc from the Katrina victims many were children and seniors. I'm concerned how us citizens would turn on each other and create more Caicos. Maybe we all should get together to establish a community emergency network to evacuate, shelter etc???

  • Renee Bee

    Putin ain't playing. He got them ice cold eyes. (shivers)

  • Deno Spencer

    Yes!! He had his dad's brother his uncle killed and more for not agreeing with him. Now that you mentioned that I'm starting to think his is like Hitler

  • TheRealLee

    He actually fed his naked uncle to 120 hungry hounds.

  • Canary Red™

    Exactly! He is a hot head that will have us all f***ked!

  • Deno Spencer

    What?! Really?!!

  • sunni_daze

    Doesn't matter. We wanted Sadams oil and Gadaffi's gold. WPMD are used as an excuse to invade on the weaker when they don't have them. We have known for 20yr NK had them and will use them....but we haven't invaded have we.

  • Yoni

    We have known for 20yr NK had them and will use them....but we haven't invaded have we.

    Based on the look he has in this pic, he looks like he's ready to f up some stuff too

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    I watch so many documentaries on North Korea....
    I believe he has intent, but I don't know if his weapons have that much power to make an impact here.

    The threat alone is enough tho...

  • Deno Spencer

    That's crazy Dogs attacking and killing his blood uncle. Crazy how in humane humanity can be

  • TheRealLee

    There was an audience too.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    THE USA WILLPULL HIS WIG BACK AND ROCK HIS FUKKIN DOME! HE CLEARLY DOES NOOOOT KNOW WHO HE IS FUKKIN WITH..

  • Meme81

    He reminds me of a little kid threatening people with his finger-gun. Chile, please!

  • Meme81

    Yes! I thought the same thing. Having a temper tantrum. The U.S. would wear his spoiled butt out.

  • Cricket404

    He didn't threaten US directly, just said his enemies, which pretty much covers all nations.

  • more

    He wont do shyt. The day he delclairs war is the day North korea falls. He knows that Japan, U.S, Europe and South korea and more will be on that a** quick!! Of course China and Russia will jump in for North but the point the dear leader will have to go into hiding in China and North Koreans will be running into the South. That point he wont have a country to run because he will be to busy trying to stay alive

  • more

    We not scared the issue is South Korea. If war breaks out they will get hit the most. Everything the South built will crumble along with North

  • cosmog

    He fixin't to be Saddam Hussein. Hiding in a hole in the ground before the US catches up with him. Then it's rap. He the only one in the country who is heavy set. He keep his ppl starvin' almost. Somebody'll sell his a&& for a samich.

  • ZZZ

    Whycome?????????? Is that a word?

  • Di Ana

    What did the U.S. do now that he wants to send a nuclear bomb over here?

  • more

    Thought I was the only one. I have seen several! !!!!!! I love seeing documentary. I truly believe that his life will crumble the day he started a war. South may be scared to do anything to the north however if the north waged war. United States and their allies would have to get involved. We would have to invade that country. He would have to go into hiding in China
