N. Korea Makes More Threats, The World Barely Listens
August 16, 2010
N. Korea (ChattahBox) – North Korea has once again made threats to South Korea, saying that the “severest punishment yet” is to come if they continue with simulated military operations with the United States.
RAW reports that N. Korea made the statement through a military spokesperson to the country’s official media, just before the US and S. Korea began joint war games to last over 10 days, labeled “Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG)”.
“The military counteraction of (North Korea) will be the severest punishment no one has ever met in the world,” the spokesperson said.
This is one of many threats to be issued from the nation since the sinking of a South Korean vessel that killed a number of sailors on board. Evidence suggested that North Korea was responsible, and they had said they would take such action before. But after an international backlash, they denied, and continue to deny, responsibility.
When the US and South Korea began working together on military drills, which includes tens of thousands of American troops, the nation, who is is rumored is going through a change of leadership, began to increase their hostility.
“The more recklessly the warmongers persist in the war rackets as a result of wrong policy option, the faster and deeper they will fall into the grave of self-destruction,” the spokesperson claimed.
But the threats have managed to illicit little reaction from international forces. At this point, threats from the nation are so common, and the leadership is so increasingly unstable, that little of what they have said is taken seriously.
The war games are set to go on as planned.
