(INTELLIHUB) — The U.S. Navy Seal team that reportedly killed Osama bin Laden is now training to take out North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un, according to a report that quotes South Korean media claims.
The report, published in the Austrian mainstream media, claims that Seal Team 6 is conducting “field training operations” amid fast rising tensions with North Korea that has even seen China warn the rogue nation.
“South Korea’s JoongAng Daily has claimed the teams would take part in a drill to simulate the removal of Kim Jong-un — a move denied by Former US Navy Commander Gary Ross,” wrote news.com.au.
Ross told the paper that, “There are variety of Special Operations Forces (SOF) participating in Foal Eagle, as they do in most regional exercises.”
“Foal Eagle is a regularly-scheduled, annual exercise that is the culmination of many months of planning and it is not being conducted in response to the current situation on peninsula.”
Keep in mind that the U.S. military wouldn’t want to confirm the news as it would give North Korea advance warning.
The news comes at the same time as reports that China has put its military on nationwide alert while directing 25,000 more troops to prepare to be sent to the North Korean border.
“Citing the Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a nongovernmental organization in Hong Kong, the Oriental Daily News reports that Beijing has ordered troops from all five of its military regions to be on high alert due to the escalating crisis in the region,” reported Infowars.
“Around 25,000 troops of the Chinese military’s 47th group army of the Ninth Armored Brigade have also been told to prepare to travel long distances close to the North Korean border, while other troop divisions may also have been mobilized.”
We are clearly seeing a massive escalation that could easily lead to a full-scale war with North Korea. Add in the tensions with Russia and we could actually see the start of World War III.
