North Korea has denied ever admitting to United States officials that it had a secret nuclear weapons program and said it would unleash a "sea of fire" if the US persists in challenging the communist country.

The warning, issued over the North's state-run media and reported by South Korea's Yonhap news agency, came just hours ahead of a much-anticipated visit to South Korea by US Assistant Secretary of State James Kelly.

Well, the NKs are gonna have nukes soon, and if that becomes the case they'll be able to back up their words.

What disturbs me is that they're making threats before we even mention military action. Why are they doing this?

They just want a payout. I swear Jesse Jackson is behind the whole thing. Kim could be trying to placate his military brass also - there was talk of a possible mil coup after Kim admitted they kidnapped some Japanese. Who knows exactly why - either way it's the fault of the US, of course, and the 'dear leader' is a great guy, I am sure of it.

But given our current stance and and annoyance with such governments, it's not a very bright move... Or, maybe it is, and we will pay them their bribe, and see it buried on page 18 or something...


Even with the nukes, they'd still lack the ability to get 'em here in qty... Sure, there's always the possibility of a single terrorist nuke attack, but hey, we just live with it...it wouldn't take much for someone with a college level physics knowledge, and some stolen uranium to make one. Whereas we know (and they know), that we would simply irradiate NK if such an attack happened from them...UN objections aside.

North Korea, Iraq even afghanistan what ever country it is we the masses will consistently pay the price for the ambitions and perceived threat to our national governments. The NOrth korean government will hopefully get the spanking they deserve from their old communist buddies China and Russia

I hate to burst your bubble, but China and Russia are not prepared to go to war over this. China would lose money to no purpose, and Russia is in no condition to be fighting an offensive war right now. It ain't gonna happen.

Sorry, should have been clearer don`t really expect them to go to war. They still carry much political weight with the N Koreans though and it more this than any offensive action i`d expect to be made

If it is a payout they want,I would think the would try sweet talking Bush instead of threats.They would have at least pretended that they lived up to the agreements they set up with Clinton,then ask the U.S for more.

I have a bad feeling about this,its more than money.
