North Korea believe the USA are about to launch an attack
The hermit state believe they are on the verge of being hit by cruise missiles from the USA, who they regularly promise to “reduce to ashes”.
After watching Donald Trump order the bombing of Syria last month, Kim and his rogue state believe they could be next.
According to Asia Press news agency North Korea “seems to be very aware of the US attack on Syria”.
