Tell us how you really feel, North Korea. The country threatened Thursday to launch a new nuclear test and long-range rocket tests as part of “all out” action against its “sworn enemy,” the U.S. Calling the U.S. the “main player” behind harsh new economic sanctions against North Korea, Pyongyang said it would retaliate with “force, not words, as it requires jungle law as the rule for survival.” Thursday’s statement, while with harsher rhetoric, is only the latest in North Korea’s threats against the U.S.—and comes just one month after North Korea successfully launched into orbit a rocket that was capable of reaching the U.S.
