North Korea punished by US over sinking of warship


www.guardian.co.uk

President Barack Obama today froze the US assets of three North Korean organisations and one individual, a US official said, in part to punish Pyongyang for the sinking of a South Korean warship in March with the loss of 46 lives. Obama signed an order to widen the scope of US sanctions to allow Washington to go after the assets of North Korean organisations that trade in conventional arms and luxury products, and that counterfeit US currency.

This is what they said about sanctions

"If the US and the ROK "tighten 'sanctions' and push 'confrontation' to an extreme phase, the (DPRK) will react to them with merciless retaliation ... and an all-out war of justice," the DPRK military statement said."

North Korea is best Korea!

LOL merciless rhetoric is more like it...Im not all that sure why the USA involves themselves in these kinds of squabbles to begin with, we need to mind our own business frankly. Thes additional sanctions will certainly inflame passions in North Korea, but unless the Chinese President just green flagged N.Korea to nuke S.Korea, all you're goin to see out of the dimunitive blowhard is a whole bunch of tantrums.

I don't buy it , sounds like these companies " had it coming " anyway .

Seems more of a way to look tough buy doing nothing and if this had of been done with out the excuse of the sinking of the souths ship we would have never herd a peep about these companies being targeted .

So this begs the question .... Has the boat sinking story officially been put to bed I.E the bad guy has been punished , nothing more to see her people , move along , move along ?

Even South Korea doubts North Korea had anything to do with the sinking of the Chounan so more of the same old same old from the US.
Just like the torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Not sure when the last time North Korea was too concerned with justice..

lets all remember

north korea said this was a false flag attack, that they didnt do it

well, but as you guys know, we wont read about any type of investigation, or the guys that did the investigation will come out saying " we couldnt investigate, they did hide things from us"

this does seem like another event that happened years ago ... anyone, anyone?

First we send in Carter with a big smile across his face, and he leaves with 2 prisoners.

The following days, N. Korea is hit with more sanctions.

lol

South Korea's Red Cross has offered to send 10 billion won ($8.3 m, £5.3m) worth of flood aid to North Korea.

The aid offer came hours after the United States imposed new sanctions on the North in response to the sinking.


www.bbc.co.uk...

Very interesting; the US slaps on sanctions and the South gives aid. That is the far wiser move.

Nuke South Korea, lol, which Hollywood movie did you watch..

Man this ignorance is really infectious..

You think N-Korea will nuke South-Korea lol..

I think the world needs to implement sanctions against the US, and freeze all US assets around the globe..

We need to go to the root problem, and the US is the root problem, we try sanctions on Israel, but what is the point of that when the US is the root, need to take out this pubic hair from the root so it doesn't grow again.. Fascist terroristic government of America has cause too much suffering around the world.

There would be a peace treaty by now if America left South Korea and stopped meddling in their affairs.

It's called the weekly [nearly daily] threats from North Korea about attacking or destroying South Korea that people hear not Hollywood.

Yeah stay on your side of the gene pool.

Well South Korea sure iss hell wont be nuking North Korea since they don't have nuclear weapons of their own.

Brilliant in about 10 or 15 years when China is all growed up and has the worlds economy in their back pocket then that would be a good time but as it stands now that would still disrupt world trade on a huge scale.

You really need to get your head out of your rear. Read up on who between the Koreas keeps reginigging. The US, China, Russia, Japan and South Korea wants a treaty but North Korea only wants to negotiate with the US not the rest.

READ dude!

While noting that the area has been the scene of deadly naval clashes with the North Koreans in the past, the explosion in the rear of the 1,200-ton Cheonan may have been caused by the boat's own explosives.


The Herald, quoting the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff, also reports that a South Korean vessel around the same time had fired warning shots toward the North at a suspicious object on radar that turned out to be a flock of birds.

content.usatoday.com...

There are many south Korean sources which indicate that the Chounan was not sunk by North Korea.
There was massive complaints about the crappy boat and dire predictions about its projected fate well before the sinking due to the ship's scary peculiarities.

You think maybe this could be the ONLY person from NK that is allowed to be on the internet?

Maybe it's even old kim himself looking for some more Disney porn.


Funny that if true, they'd be spending their time here.

North Korean Submarine Helmsman Breaks 14-Year Silence
www.dailynk.com...
Snippit:
However, incredulous at the fact that suspicions keep arising in South Korea about the Cheonan investigation findings even after the presentation of clear evidence, and troubled by claims made by the National Defense Commission on May 28th that the Cheonan incident was a fabrication, Lee decided to break his silence in an interview with The Daily NK.
