Hyeonseo Lee, who escaped in a daring mission through China, says the despotic leader would ‘certainly’ launch his deadly arsenal if he faced defeat at the hands of the US.
‘At the very last minute, when he finds out that he’s going to lose all his power he’s definitely going to use it,’ she told MailOnline in a fascinating interview highlighting what life is really like inside the secretive state.
‘There’s a slogan in North Korea which goes: ‘America dies, we die, we all die together’.
‘He would launch missiles at South Korea, Japan and America. He’s a dictator who’d have nowhere to go and there would be no way to stop him.
Hyeonseo, now 37, went on to reveal how most North Koreans are ‘brainwashed’ into believing the regime’s propaganda and how the thousands who are forced to attend military parades ‘pee their pants’ because they are forbidden from leaving.
