US Navy Seals Train SKorean Team to Kill Kim Jong Un
The elite US Navy Seal Team Six that took out Osama bin Laden in Pakistan is training a SKorean assassination squad to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to a report in the LT’s.
The news comes as tensions continue to rise between North Korea and the US following Pyongyang’s most powerful nuclear test this past weekend of a hydrogen bomb capable of being fitted onto an intercontinental ballistic missile.
US President Donald Trump last month warned NKorea would be met with “Fire & Fury” if it continued to make threats. But Kim was persistent even after the UN agreed to its strictest sanctions yet on NKorea, maintaining his nuclear weapons program was necessary to deter a US invasion.
The SKorean assassination team, which will be launched in December, will work with Seal Team Six, the group that killed al-Qaida leader bin Laden in Y 2011.
“We are in the process of conceptualizing the plan,” Song Young-moo, the Defense Minister, told MPs, according to the the London Times. “I believe we can create the unit by December 1.”
Minister Song said Monday he would like the United States to consider redeploying nuclear weapons to the KPeninsula as threats from NKorea intensify.
