More Fighting Words From North Korea: “Fiery Showers of Nuclear Retaliation”

June 25, 2009

(ChattahBox)— More threatening saber rattling coming from North Korea this week, in its government controlled newspaper, Rodong Sinmun warning of the “…dark clouds of a nuclear war gathering as the hours tick by.” This latest rhetoric from Pyongyang comes as the closed Communist country commemorates the anniversary of the Korean conflict.

The newspaper’s editorial was reacting to the recent meeting between President Obama and the President of South Korea, where the White House promised support to South Korea with the continuation of a “nuclear umbrella,” claiming those words were intended to provoke another war.

The paper colorfully derided the meeting between the two leaders as a “a disgusting kiss between the master and his servant.”

The paper referred to the United States’ hostility towards North Korea, as reason to continue expanding its nuclear weapons and plutonium production.

Rodong Sinmun went on to issue a dire warning of “fiery showers of nuclear retaliation” in case of any aggression against the Communist country by the U.S. or South Korea.

In honor of the anniversary of the Korean conflict, the government displayed numerous historical artifacts it said were destroyed by U.S. forces during the war.

Meanwhile, tensions continue to mount between the U.S. and North Korea, as the Communist country has threatened to fire off a long-range ballistic missile, aimed at Hawaii on July 3 or 4.

The U.S. navy is also closely monitoring a North Korean ship, the Kang Nam 1 in the Pacific that is suspected of carrying illegal weapons or nuclear materials.
