Kim Jong Un Is Freaking Out Over The Threat Of A SEAL Team 6 Decapitation Strike
North Korean supreme leader and Pillsbury Doughboy cosplayer Kim Jong Un likes to talk shit about wiping out the Western world with his Hermit Kingdom’s flaccid intercontinental ballistic missiles. But in reality, the authoritarian little bastard is pissing himself over the prospect of U.S. special operations forces smothering him with a pillow in the dead of night.
Officials with South Korea’s National Intelligence Services told lawmakers during a closed-door parliamentary session on June 22 that the North Koreas dictator is “extremely nervous” about the potential for a clandestine “decapitation strike,” the Korea Herald reports.
According to lawmakers, Kim is “engrossed with collecting information about the ‘decapitation operation’ through his intelligence agency” — so engrossed that the tiny tyrant even stopped rolling in his Mercedes-Benz 600 to avoid assassination by car bomb.
“The number of Kim Jong Un’s public activities was 51, a 32 percent decrease from last year,” South Korean intelligence officials told lawmakers, per the Korea Herald. “Since 2013, we have seen a downward trajectory of Kim’s public activities.”
Kim may have good reason to be afraid. In March, South Korea’s Joon Gang Daily reported that the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team 6 — the very warfighters who took out Osama Bin Laden — were joining South Korean special forces during annual military exercises to simulate a decapitation attack designed to neutralize Kim Jong Un and military leaders in Pyongyang, lifting the regime’s totalitarian hold over the population.
“A bigger number of and more diverse U.S. special operation forces will take part in this year’s Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises to practice missions to infiltrate into the North, remove the North’s war command and demolition of its key military facilities,” a military official confirmed to Yonhap News.
That Joon Gang dispatch appeared to match a March Wall Street Journal report on President Donald Trump’s consideration of military options against Pyongyang. But the Department of Defense insisted that its theater-level commands, including U.S. Special Operations Command, “[do] not train for decapitation missions” of any kind.
And now, live footage from Kim’s Pyongyang lair:
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
And no one knows that better than military service members and we have the pictures to prove it.
A special operations Marine is due in court on March 7 after being arrested last year for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Task & Purpose has learned.
Staff Sgt. Daniel Christopher Evans was arrested and charged with assault inflicting serious injury on July 29, 2018, according to Jennifer Dandron, a spokeswoman for police in Wilmington, North Carolina. Evans is currently assigned as a Critical Skills Operator with the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, according to the Marine Corps Personnel Locator.
Following Trump's inauguration, some supporters of ground combat integration assumed he would quickly move to reinstate a ban on women in jobs like the infantry. When this did not happen, advocates breathed a collective sigh of relief, and hundreds of qualified women charted a course in history by entering the newly opened occupational fields.
So earlier this week when the Wall Street Journal published an editorial against women in ground combat by conservative political commentator Heather Mac Donald, the inclination of many ground combat integration supporters was to dismiss it outright. But given Trump's proclivity to make knee jerk policy decisions in response to falling approval ratings and the court's tradition of deference to the military when it comes to policies affecting good order and discipline, it would be unwise to assume the 2016 lifting of the ban on women in ground combat is a done deal.
R. Lee Ermey was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday.
Best known for his iconic role as the Marine Corps drill instructor Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in the war drama Full Metal Jacket, Ermey died April 15, 2018 at age 74 due to complications from pneumonia, Task & Purpose previously reported.
The U.S. Air Force has two of its most elite aircraft — the B-2 Spirit bomber and the F-22 Raptor — training together in the Pacific, reassuring America's allies and sending a warning to strategic competitors and adversaries about the sheer power the U.S. brings to the table.
These stunning photos show the powerful aircraft tearing across the Pacific, where the U.S. has increasingly found itself facing challenges from a rising China.
