North Korea has reportedly approved a nuclear attack on the U.S.

“The moment of explosion is approaching fast,” the North Korean military said in a statement, adding that war could happen “today or tomorrow,” according to the AFP.

The announcement from Pyongyang continued to claim that American threats would be “smashed by... cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means.”

“The merciless operation of [our] revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified,” the statement, published by the state-run KCNA news agency, said, according to PolicyMic.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has warned that danger from North Korea was “real and clear.”

“Some of the actions they’ve taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger,” Hagel said at the National Defense University in Washington.

The Pentagon, meanwhile, is preparing to reinforce its Pacific missile defenses by sending “ground-based interceptors to Guam and dispatching two Aegis class destroyers to the region,” the AFP reports.

Still, not everybody is convinced that North Korea’s missiles can reach U.S. soil.

“Despite the increasingly belligerent rhetoric and new images emerging from the North Korean regime, analysts believe its missiles are not capable of striking targets as far away as the U.S. mainland and are not, as yet, capable of delivering a nuclear payload,” the Telegraph reports.
