North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has resurfaced, or if you like it, resurrected, but with a word or two for all the people who claimed he was dead.
Speaking to the State News Agency after a brief inspection tour of a new fertilizer factory in North Korea, Kim said that he was very aware that some people had been talking, and he knows all the people who want him dead.
“I have been busy, but I also know what has been going on. I have seen the tweets, the news headlines and the rumors that have been going on. It is going to take some time but I promise to revisit every single person case by case.”
The leader said that it was unfortunate that some people who did not know him wanted him dead, yet he has never been ‘bad to them.’ “It is unfortunate some people who have never been to North Korea, interacted with me or North Koreans, or even read anything about North Korea want me dead. Our policies have never affected them in any way, and they cannot even point at the location of North Korea on a map. Why the animosity?”
“We shall revisit this hate and when we do, remember you started it yourself.”
The statement has caused jitter among many people across the world. The rocket man is a man of means and does not shy away from eliminating anybody that is a threat to him. He has been known to kill his top aides and close relatives, and the fact that he has missiles that can land anywhere in the world (because they are not precise) is a big risk.
Even world leaders who had been silent about his rumored death have come out to wish him well. Many shared their messages in Twitter using the hashtag #LongLiveTheKim
