It's been a few months since the North Korean military issued any threats to the U.S. but Monday the state run media relayed this message.
The U.S. will be wholly accountablefor the unexpected horrible disaster after deploying its imperialist forces' nuclear strike weapons against us randomly.
The message is in reference to a planned three day naval drill set to take place this week between the U.S. and South Korea.
The U.S.S. George Washington led a group of ships in a routine visit to a South Korean port a few days ago.
South Korean Defense officials said this was likely the reason for the rhetoric from the North and that they were closely monitoring North's military movements.
North Korea often issues empty threats to attack the South and the U.S. but has rarely acted on them.
