North Korea said on Tuesday its military would be put on high alert and be ready to launch operations, stepping up tension after weeks of rhetoric directed against the United States and South Korea, who it accuses of instigating hostility.
Reclusive North Korea has often issued threats to attack the South and the United States but has rarely turned them into action. Such hostile rhetoric is widely seen as a means to perpetuate its domestic and international political agenda.
In the latest outburst, a spokesman for the North's military warned the United States of "disastrous consequences" for moving a group of ships, including an aircraft carrier, into a South Korean port.
"In this connection, the units of all services and army corps level of the KPA received an emergency order from its supreme command to reexamine the operation plans already ratified by it and keep themselves fully ready to promptly launch operations any time," the spokesman said, referring to the Korean People's Army (KPA).
"The U.S. will be wholly accountable for the unexpected horrible disaster to be met by its imperialist aggression forces' nuclear strike means," the spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

The crazy hermit kingdom is at it again.. Expect nothing to come of these pointless warnings from the North, seems like they do this at least 3 times a year now.

They come up with such rhetoric periodically for you guys to start a thread on it.

I hear NK is enable to create more nukes. Perhaps more negotiation should take place to fool their stupid leader into showing his teeth by exploding another nuke on their soil. When all explode and no new ones are available, well, then Kim better shutdown properly!

I think this type of action by NK is the same as the USA War on Drugs or War of Terror and just used to manipulate the masses, create fear, demonize someone to create a common focus by the people. If it works in the USA, it will work in North Korea.

Probably the best NK can hope to accomplish from this.

I wonder if the tale of the boy who cried wolf is banned in North Korea.

If their country ever becomes free it should be required reading.

Miscalculation on their part. If they dare do anything now, seemingly to take advantage of a moment of weakness, they will find out quite abruptly that Americans come together when faced with outside aggression.

what a stupid retort. NK is a communist dictatorship, Do you think news of what happens to dissidents is well publicized there? I find it funny that you try to claim we are like NK

I interpret that as NO LINK. BS, just as I thought.

That's one of the lamer attempts to deny the obvious

Here, read it and weep

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/09/opinion/09iht-edlankov.1.16818156.html?_r=0

In post-Stalin East Europe, expressing a moderately dissenting thought could put a career at risk; in North Korea even an innocuous joke can bring long-term imprisonment of both culprit and his or her entire family.

Zero tolerance for any dissent is combined with unprecedented information isolation. North Korea is probably the only country in the world where it is a crime to own a radio with unrestricted tuning.

demanding links for the obvious is a sign of weak understanding

Like I said, Bullcrap! Nothing in that link about shooting writers for expressing opinions. Nitey, nite.
