North Korea threatens 'sea of fire' on South over island military drills
Source: AP

North Korea has threatened to turn Seoul's presidential office into a "sea of fire" after South Korea conducted military drills near an island attacked by the North last year.

The exercises marked the first anniversary of North Korea's artillery attack on the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong that killed two marines and two civilians.

The North Korean military warned on Thursday that "a similar sea of fire" may engulf Seoul's presidential Blue House if South Korean forces ever fired a single shot into North Korea's territory. The warning was carried by North Korean state media.

Pyongyang blamed Seoul for provoking the attack last year, saying it struck after warning South Korea not to carry out live-fire drills in waters that both Koreas claim as their territory.

3. Why do the US and South Korea insist on provoking North Korea?
Is there any particular reason to hold large-scale military exercises in disputed territory? This seems very needless, the only purpose seems to be to piss off North Korea.

5. A sympathizer of the North Korean regime?
Thats new even by DU standards.


But let be try to answer your question.

1. North Korea threatens to nuke the South in regular intervals.

2. A North Korean sub sank the Cheonan killing 46 south korean sailors.

3. The North fired shells onto Yeonpyeong island in South's territory


Its the North that stirring the pot.

8. Not new. There are several NK sympathizers here.
A few months ago someone started a thread showing pictures of smiling NK people, trying to promote the idea that everyone there is happy. The fact that NK is having another famine didn't faze him.

7. Again?
/yawn

Typical North Korean bluster. If a real war broke out North Korea would lose and their regime would be destroyed. They know it and so does everyone else. All the North can do is throw violent temper tantrums now and again in the hopes they can extort food and fuel aid out of their neighbors and the US. This basketcase communist regime does serve one worthwhile purpose, it is a good example to the world of the absolute failure of marxist/leninist ideology.
