A woman who managed to defect from North Korea has just come forward to say that she’s sure Kim Jong Un would launch nuclear weapons against his enemies like the U.S. as a “last stand.”
Daily Mail reported that Hyeonseo Lee, who barely managed to escape to China from North Korea, said Kim Jong Un would “certainly” launch his deadly arsenal if he faced defeat at the hands of the US.
“At the very last minute, when he finds out that he’s going to lose all his power he’s definitely going to use it,” said Hyeonseo, 37. “There’s a slogan in North Korea which goes: ‘America dies, we die, we all die together.”
“He would launch missiles at South Korea, Japan, and America. He’s a dictator who’d have nowhere to go and there would be no way to stop him,” she added.
She went on to explain that North Koreans are “brainwashed” into believing the regime’s propaganda and how the thousands who are forced to attend military parades “pee their pants” because they are forbidden from leaving. Hyeonseo also talked about the most recent military parade in which Kim Jong Un showed off his latest weapons.
“The weapons they paraded this time were all new,” she said. “Kim wanted the world to see they have more powerful bombs and rockets than ever before and he wanted to show America they have they’re ready to fight them.”
“Most people in the country didn’t – and might still not – know about how powerful the United States is,” Hyeonseo added. “They think North Korean weapons are the best in the world and they’re very proud of them. They believe they can protect the country from anyone.”
