U.S., China agree U.N. sanctions draft; North Korea renews threats


www.reuters.com

Developments in New York led to a new volley of bellicose rhetoric from Pyongyang.

"We will completely nullify the Korean armistice," the North's KCNA news agency said, quoting the Korean People's Army Supreme Command spokesman.

The spokesman called the U.S.-South Korean military exercise "a systematic act of destruction aimed at the Korean armistice." The two Koreas remain technically at war since the 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.

There are 2 aspects to the news item - teh first is china's involvement in a new round of sanctions agaisnt Nth Korea. This has been signalled for some time now, and is, I think, a welcome sign that even the PRC are getting irritated by this nut-job dictator.

The 2nd is the Nth Korean response to a military exercise south of the border - and that is the snippet I have included above.

A threat to abrogate the armistice means a return to actual shooting war - where either side is "free" to open fire any time it wants without warning. Of course this happens there every now and then anyway - but openly supporting a state of "hot war" is an unwelcome development.

Will they go through with it?

Only time will tell......
