NORTH Korea today vowed unspecified retaliation against South Korea for its perceived insulting response to the death of late leader Kim Jong Il. The threat came in a statement on the official North Korean news agency and was also read on state television. "We will make the [South Korean leader] Lee Myung-Bak traitor group pay till the end for the eternally unforgivable sins they committed on the occasion of the state funeral," it said. The TV highlighted the comment in a sub-title under the announcer, which was repeated for about 10 minutes.

I see they continue to whine, and the new leader has something to prove. Or does he? Let's just hope he doesn't go wacko and try to fire a nuke...

Just another step towards global warfare.........


SGTSECRET- I hope this all stays calm, for yours, and everybody else's sake.

There's enough trouble in the Middle East without this,

And North Korea Has Nuclear Technology,

Keeping my eyes on this one.

Notice the report doesn't say what was said to provoke such a response?

I served in Germany during the cold war. So, I know what it's like to have the "delay as long as possible then die in place" mission.

Good luck and God Bless.

And thanks for serving.

Would pay little attention to such comments, North Korea may have a large army, but they are poorly fed, short and their weapons are often obsolete.

As for nuking the south, well they would just get a nuke straight back so I fail to see how this is a likely scenario

Are the North Koreans suggesting that this man was to be honored by anyone else other than his immediate cronies who would have had a good life under this tyranical douche. He made the lives of his own people and his neighbors miserable. The only people that did not hate him are the people who believed his "it's the worlds fault" retoric.

Well said. I know my 150 year old Martini-Henry makes deer just as dead as a brand new 300 Win Mag.

If I remember reading previous articles surrounding the death (more the world's reaction) correctly they didn't say anything at all really more than an "ehhh probably isn't going to change anything, but I hope it does" (paraphrasing of course). I believe the US took the same approach in response to his death.

Perhaps that is the "eternally unforgivable sin". Although it does say during the funeral so I am not sure if they did or said something that constitutes an eternal retribution (according to N. Korea) campaign.

no, their weapons are largely decrepit, and I would question the amount of ammunition they have to sustain any campaign as well.

Yes, all very exciting, but in terms of an army their decrepit weaponry makes them a very unformidable enemy (amongst other things)

Also, we in the west are helping to sustain such regimes as they see various despots being lynched or executed, so it is not like they could just relinquish power gently
