N. Korea Threatens Violence After S. Korea Joins Security Initiative

May 27, 2009

North Korea (ChattahBox) – After South Korea joined up with the US in an effort to disarm it’s neighbor, North Korea has threatened war if any ships are stopped and checked for nuclear weapons.

North Korea has long been making threats, but the increasing hostility (as well as increasing instability of it’s leader, Kim Jong-il) is creating more tension in both their neighbors, and with other world powers. With ongoing and perhaps tighter sanctions, Kim Jong-il greatest source of income might be exporting weapons.

Though the UN is reluctant to step in on this situation, opting for continuing with negotiations to disarm, North Korea is making it clear that impending violence may force a confrontation that could create widespread destruction.

In the meantime, South Korea’s decision to join the Proliferation Security Initiative is sure to generate more anger from North Korea, especially once inevitable ship checks begin.
