    North Korea threatens to launch pre-emptive nuclear strike against US and South Korea

    The United Nations Security Council approved a new regimen of sanctions on Thursday against
    North Korea
    for its underground nuclear test last month, imposing penalties on North Korean banking, travel and trade in a unanimous vote that reflected the country’s increased international isolation.
    The resolution, which was drafted by the United States and China, was passed 15-0 in a speedy vote hours after North Korea threatened for the first time to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States and
    South Korea
    .
    Few analysts believe that North Korea would launch a military attack at the United States, a decision that would be suicidal for the regime. But officials in Seoul feared that North Korea might attempt an armed skirmish to test the military resolve of Park Geun-hye, South Korea’s first female president, who took office less than two weeks ago.

    Maybe we should just take them off the map now.


    Of course our bed wetter in chief can't do that to those we think like him.

    I can't believe there was anything left to sanction.

    North Korea declares 1953 armistice invalid - CNN.com

    Since last week, North Korea had been threatening to scrap the armistice after the U.N. Security Council passed tougher sanctions against it in response to its February 12 nuclear test. On Monday, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper reported that the Supreme Command of North Korea's army had done so.
    "The U.S. has reduced the armistice agreement to a dead paper," the newspaper said.

    I welcome the 25 million people of North Korea to the world's economy and look forward to their innovations.

    Hopefully only the assholes who never suffered a moment under crippling sanctions will be made into pavement paste.

    Has there been a nicer wish at the start of a war?
