war with north k SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea (news - web sites) has ordered its citizens to be ready for a protracted war against the United States, issuing guidelines on evacuating to underground bunkers with weapons, food and portraits of leader Kim Jong Il.

The 33-page "Detailed Wartime Guidelines," published in South Korea (news - web sites)'s Kyunghyang newspaper on Wednesday and verified by Seoul, was issued April 7, 2004, at a time when the communist regime was claiming it was Washington's next target following the Iraq (news - web sites) war.

The manual — the first such North Korean document made public in the outside world — was signed by Kim Jong Il in his capacity as chairman of the Central Military Committee of the ruling Workers' Party. That ended speculation over whether Kim has assumed the top military post following the 1994 death of his father, President Kim Il Sung.

Analysts said the guidelines reflected Pyongyang's fear over a possible U.S. military strike amid stalled talks on its nuclear weapons programs. They said the guidelines were also meant to whip up a sense of crisis among its 22 million people, reportedly growing discontent amid economic hardship.

"The United States has cooked up suspicion over our nuclear programs and is escalating an offensive of international pressure to strangle and destroy our republic," the booklet said. "If this tactic doesn't work, it plots to use this (nuclear) problem as an excuse for armed invasion."

Kyunghyang did not clarify where it acquired the document classified as "top secret."

Ha Ha Ha

You got to be kidding me...Do you really think if this was reversed that people in the US would take shelter with Pics of GW? Whether you support him or not, I think that would be the Last thing on your mind.....

Again this is just pure Propaganda to get people riled up. No one in that region wants a Nuclear war, and trust me, N Korea will be ash before anything else, Probably at the hands of Russia none the less.

I'm starting to think Kim is just beggin for us to invade so he can surrender quickly against overwhelming odds stacked against him (not as much loss of face) and spend the rest of his days in a nice villa with a hot tub somewhere in a quiet corner of China. Being all-powerful leader but not powerful enough to feed his people has got to be tiring, ya know? So is living as far outside reality as he supposedly does.
