While there are certainly a number of clandestine military operations being conducted at any given time out there on the world’s stage, it isn’t often that the average citizen is aware of just how wild these maneuvers can be.
Sure, Hollywood has filled our heads with stories involving folks like Jason Bourne and James Bond, secretly infiltrating foreign lands to commit high level actions meant to somehow save the world, but this is all fiction….right?
As it turns out, the US military may actually be working up some wild plans to take out international bad guys, and the news could trigger a response from one of our most annoying enemies.
The U.S and South Korea are about to play war games again, and this time they’re going for the jugular.
For their first joint military exercises in five years, the Americans and South Koreans will polish up what military people here call the “kill chain” in which they target the North’s missile and nuclear sites plus bases needed to supply, refuel, and rearm them.
But here is where the plot takes a major twist:
Sources familiar with the U.S.-South Korea military alliance say the games will climax in a “decapitation” exercise where they play at invading the heart of the North Korean command structure and taking out the leader, Kim Jong Un. Although it’s only a game, he’s sure to take it personally as he did in September 2017 when he ordered the North’s sixth, and most recent, nuclear test after that year’s war games.
US military officials were predictably unwilling to confirm that such an exercise was on the docket, but the rumors alone could cause some retaliatory grandstanding from Kim, who has long considered the United States one of North Korea’s most consistent adversaries.
