A South Korean news agency reported Friday that the North has threatened to attack “without notice” in response to anti-North rallies this week — and that it sent the warning by fax.
It’s the latest provocation from North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, who, at 30 years old, was born not long before the fax entered its golden age of curling paper, thermal printing and shrieking modems.
The threat was sent by the North Korean military, according to the Yonhap news agency. It arrived, apparently without a paper jam, at the South Korean National Security Council.

North Korea sends fax threatening to strike South Korea 'without notice': report

Via FAX. You gotta love the technology. I imagine this is just more hot air from this regime but worth keeping a watch.





The military apparently condemned rallies by several conservative groups and North Korean defectors that took place in the South on Tuesday, saying they insulted North Korea’s “highest dignity,” referring to Kim.
The rallies were held on the second anniversary of the death of Kim Jong Il, the younger Kim’s father, who was known as the Dear Leader and ruled the North from 1994 until his death in 2011.

Haha



Dennis Rodman, the flamboyant former NBA star — whose own best years coincided with those of the fax machine — is in North Korea this week holding tryouts for a basketball team that is supposed to play NBA veterans on Kim’s birthday next month.

He told The Associated Press that plans are coming along, but he said he hasn’t convinced all of the players he wants for the American team that it will be safe to travel to the North.
“I’m just telling them, you know, don’t be afraid, man, it’s all love, it’s all love here,” Rodman told the AP after tryouts at the Pyongyang Indoor Gymnasium.

“I understand what’s going on with the political stuff, and I say, I don’t go into that venture, I’m just doing one thing for these kids here, and for this country, and for my country, and for the world pretty much,” he added.

The NOW panel discuss the signs of internal instability in North Korea and if President Obama will pivot his foreign policy toward Asia in his second term.

Rodman and Kim Jong Un, famous for bad behavior of two completely different kinds, have struck an improbable friendship. Rodman visited the North earlier this year with the Harlem Globetrotters for an HBO special.

Rodman remains the highest-profile American to meet with the young leader, whom he has described as an “awesome guy.”

While North Korea overtly threatens, the media focuses our attention on Iran.
I will never understand politics....

LMAO. Fax. That's hilarious. Surprised it wasn't telegraph. "We will attack. Stop. Without Notice. Stop. Prepare to die. End" LMAO

What would be even funnier is if they sent as a phone text message:

"We're gonna attack you without notice!
"

Like a really bad teenage breakup spat/text.

Maybe if he also got a decent haircut and kept of the Mars bars for a while people might take him a little more seriously!



Kindest respects

With the uncle out of the way and a purge underway certainly notches up the danger.

What frightens me is that he will start a war simply to prove himself to the world and his generals. When you are brainwashed to the point of thinking you are a descendant of a God, coupled with a complete and total lack of understanding how the world works = Lunatic.

He is one of those leaders who will have no issues sacrificing / murdering his own people simple to prove a point. Its reminds me of Hitler's attitude when the allies were closing in on Berlin. When the generals brought up the impact on German civilians Hitler took the attitude that they deserve what they get. With the allies closing in Hitler felt the German people / military failed him.

The downfall was of his own doing yet he was to arrogant to see that.

I think the same will hold with Un.

Question - With the recent changes in leadership, a 4th nuke test in the works and the latest fax to South Korea, are his actions / threats enough to justify something preemptive?

Is this one of those cases where if one of the plots to assassinate Hitler succeeded, would WWII have occurred?

If we topple Un, will the results be better than if he stayed in power and started a war that may very well go nuclear?

Also I noticed China has gotten extremely quiet / distant from North Korea. They have also lost some of their ability to control Un. If china loses the ability to influence / confront then this situation may be a lot more worse than we think.

China has moved large numbers of military / police units to the region of the DPRK- China border. They have stated the moves was to deal with a potential humanitarian / refugee issue.

If N. Korea has decided to break the truce and start a war, maybe those Chinese units are being placed not for humanitarian reasons but for a possible war?

I dont blame them.

I doubt if he was going to attack he would give them warning. Warning that your going to attack without warning makes the attack with out warning void as you have warned them.

But it could always be a bluff and its best to be safe than sorry and go to alert. You are obviouly dealing with someone irrational and insane.

North Korea is just laughable. First of all they send notice warning they will not notify when they attack. Isn't the point of an attack to catch your enemy off guard? And then to top things off he sends it via fax.

I bet Rodman had something to do with this...


Seriously though it's only a matter of time for the Korean war to start off again. Kimmy boy will end sparking a world war I'm sure.
