North Korea Threatens Attack in Response to ‘US – South Korean’ Military Exercises
July 23, 2010
(Chattahbox) – North Korea isn’t too happy about the U.S. performing military drills near their country. Spokesman Ri Tong-il said that there will be a “physical response” to the supposed threat from the U.S. and South Korea. The two countries will be starting a four day military exercise in the Japan Sea on Sunday.
Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State, was unimpressed with North Korea’s reaction, calling them “isolated and belligerent.” North Korea has pulled out of several talks about its nuclear programs, and is suspected in the recent sinking a South Korean navy vessel, which killed 46 servicemen.
In response to the accusation, North Korea has taken to lashing out against the U.S. and their “aggression.” Clinton has placed sanctions on the nation until they return to the talks about the nuclear program; North Korea says it will not return to the talks until the sanctions are lifted, effectively creating a stalemate. The sanctions target bank accounts that are suspected to hold funds related to things like nuclear weapons, drugs, and counterfeiting.
North Korea has refused to apologize for the sinking of the South Korean navy ship Cheonan, saying that it is South Korea that should apologize to them for it. Clearly North Korea has taken up residence in another dimension where backwards logic makes sense. Unfortunately for them, no one else has joined them there yet.
