Yet again the fearless leader of North Korea is at it again. Its only nerve wracking as we never know if its just another wolf cry, or if he is going to go off the deep end.
In a statement run on the state-run Korean Central News Agency, the commission said, “The army and people of the [North] will legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises.”
Pyongyang routinely threatens war when its southern neighbor and the US hold joint military exercises. South Korea’s defense ministry said no unusual North Korean military movements were detected.
Yesterday, a North Korea spokesman, Ri Tong-il, told reporters at the Asean regional security forum in Hanoi, Vietnam, there would be a “physical response” to the drills in the Sea of Japan, which he branded another sign of US “hostility”.
The US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, said “isolated and belligerent” North Korea would have to end its “campaign of provocative, dangerous behavior” if it wanted better relations with the US and the rest of Asia.
