NKorea said it would launch “pre-emptive nuclear attack” on US. Someone needs to tell Kim Jong Un how “Old Yeller” ends. #tcot

Read this story below:
The provocative statement comes weeks after the country conducted underground nuclear tests which caused a massive earthquake.
Americaâ€™s west coast cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco are feared to be in Kimâ€™s sights.
A foreign ministry spokesman said: “Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to pre-emptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest.”
The UN today has voted to implement its toughest restrictions yet on North Korea in a bid to halt its nuclear ambitions.
Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said: “The international community will not tolerate its pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
The threat from North Korea was followed by a chilling new propaganda film via its official Youtube channel.
The warped film shows the might of the North Korean military. The footage shows missiles being fired and dramatic military parades.
A convoy of North Korean missiles on trucks is also seen rolling through Pyongyang.
The UN sanctions imposed today include a list of luxury items the country’s rulers will be banned from importing.
“These sanctions will bite and bite hard,â€ said US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.
She added: “North Korea will achieve nothing by continued threats and provocations. These will only further isolate the country and its people and undermine international efforts to promote peace and stability in northeast Asia.”
