North Korea Threatens to attack South Korea and U.S. ships

What happens when crazy people have access to nuclear weapons? Nothing good! Iran has been in close communication with the North Koreans, and terrorist groups would love to pay for the nukes which were just tested by the outlaw regime.

Incensed that an alliance of nations plans to interdict ships which are suspected of helping the N. Korean weapons program or that are moving weapons from N. Korea to elsewhere, has threatened to attack S. Korean and U. S. ships.

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea threatened military action Wednesday against U.S. and South Korean warships plying the waters near the Koreas‘ disputed maritime border, raising the specter of a naval clash just days after the regime’s underground nuclear test.

In Washington, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned that Pyongyang faced unspecified consequences because of its “provocative and belligerent” acts.

Pyongyang, reacting angrily to Seoul’s decision to join an international program to intercept ships suspected of aiding nuclear proliferation, called South Korea’s decision tantamount to a declaration of war

The North Korean army called it a violation of the armistice the two Koreas signed in 1953 to end their three-year war, and said it would no longer honor the treaty.

South Korea’s military said Wednesday it was prepared to “respond sternly” to any North Korean provocation.
