North Korea Has Issued Its Ultimate Definite Last Totally 'Final Warning'
Yahoo ^ | 3/29/13 | Sara Morrison

North Korea greeted the weekend by stating through its KCNA news agency that it is entering a "state of war" with South Korea. This seems like much more serious news than an earlier KCNA story about using nutritious leeks in seasonal dishes, but there's reason to be skeptical that NoKo's latest declaration means anything at all.

The statement wasn't accompanied by an actual attack, which would have been the most obvious sign that North Korea was serious about this. Instead, it's just more chest-beating, this time in response to the "provocation" of the U.S. flying stealth bombers over South Korea. Most seem fairly sure that this is just more posturing from the country that loves its propaganda:

"Few believe North Korea will risk starting a full-out war," said Reuters.

Other than the fact he has not yet placed a nuke on one of his missiles or aircraft, and they are hardly the size to be placed on a “drone.”

Seriously though, it is a big technological step to put a nuke on a missile or an aircraft as opposed to detonating one in a bunker somewhere.

I would be more worried about a nuke in a container ship in Long Beach.

It was said Kim Un gets students out of school to dress as solders for these shots.....also for the parades.

Understanding is his military has been affected with the lack of food there now......so he’s resorted to using the people who are well fed for photo ops.

The North Korean leadership has made it quite clear over this weekend .(Boston News)...that Their Nuclear ambitions are NOT negotiable now or ever.....that Nuclear is their nations “Life”.....yet there people are dying of starvation throughout the countryside because of this Leaderships insistance they retain their power...thru Nuclear.

All this is to get back to negotiations so they can continue to bask in the luxeries the leadership is accustomed to, and which the UN recent sanctions put a hault on.

With this enough to trickle down to city people so they will continue to think Kim Un is God.

Kim's just following his father and grandfathers agenda....points to this and that.. as if significant and good for photo-op propaganda to keep the people thinking they have a Worshipful Leader.

Interesting is ...I tried to find something on line where Kim is actually engaged in “doing” something.....the best there is is riding his horse and taking a ride on the new amusement park they built for him. Otherwise he simply ‘points’.

Twelve armed North Korean soldiers apparently defected across the border to China... earlier this month but were captured by Chinese troops and sent back to the North.

Late last month, two North Korean soldiers ‘shot and killed their senior officer’ and fled to Jilin Province,..... prompting experts to suspect.. ‘something unusual is going on in army units stationed along the border with China.’

The 12 North Korean soldiers stationed with a border unit defected across the Chinese border in two groups but were sent back after being captured by Chinese troops, a diplomatic source in Beijing said Thursday.

Another source in the Chinese town of Yanji near the border with North Korea, said the other two North Korean soldiers shot and killed their senior officer and crossed over the border into Changbai, Jilin Province, causing Chinese troops nearby to scramble into emergency mode.

The spate of defections may be related to food shortages. International aid to the North has dropped sharply since it launched a rocket in April last year, affecting the food situation for soldiers as well as ordinary people. With food rationing concentrated in Pyongyang and military units along the border with South Korea, troops on the border with China are apparently subsisting on corn and potatoes they grow on their own.

“As spring progresses and crop inventories are depleted further, we may see an increase in the number of defecting soldiers,” said an informed source.

Meanwhile, China is still apparently sending back North Korean civilian defectors as well. Eight North Korean defectors who were caught by Chinese security officers in Yanji earlier this month were transferred to a camp for defectors in Tumen and all sent back across the border, according to a source.

Five of them were children, some of whom had reportedly scraped a living by begging for food.

One of two South Korean citizens who were caught along with North Korean defectors was deported to the South on Wednesday. They were former defectors from the North and had entered China to help their families escape North Korea.

Holy crap, you mean this is ROLE REVERSAL?

Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you... and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are.

Cheers!

They hide their contraband marshmallows in them.

There is no practical reason why he can’t launch a nuclear armed drone from a fishing trawler and detonate it over my house.

Sure there is. Size and weight. At this stage they're huge. More concerned about a weapon hidden in a merchant vessel and detonated coming into port..

Hi Windflier, Interesting to follow this twitter...

Tango down:..... Anonymous disables several North Korean government websites in Operation North Korea (#OpNorthKorea).

An Anonymous hacktivist cell identified as Anonymous_Korea launched successful DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks on multiple North Korean state websites on Saturday, March 30, only hours after the North Koreans issued an inflammatory statement declaring that they had entered into a “state of war” with South Korea.

Sites taken down include the Korean and English language versions of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the North Korean Committee for Cultural Relations and the state-owned airline Air Koryo.

Best time to launch an attack was Easter Sunday—but none came—so this bit of bluster will end with nothing! maybe the North will shell an island or send a few commandos across the border. With Easter gone. the time for a war has passed.

Hello Joe...just when I think I’ve heard it all....check this out....

North Koreans are being forced to make fertilizer for the regime. A source in Beijing on Sunday said, “Fertilizer is essential for the spring sowing season, but North Korea has almost no chemical fertilizer, so the government ordered every person to produce hundreds of kilograms.”

In North Korea, fertilizer is usually made by mixing human feces with straw, but the excrement is harder to come by than one might expect. The source said, “There are cases of theft of squat toilets because of this, and people are putting locks on their lavatories to prevent this.”

Until 2007, South Korea gave North Korea some 300,000 tons of chemical fertilizer a year. Until last year, farmers survived on the remainder and with help from China, but the reserves have run out and assistance from Beijing dwindled as the regime ignored Chinese pleas to desist from its nuclear and missile tests.

A North Korea expert in China said, “North Koreans are not only forced to produce more fertilizer but also to collect more scrap metal. The dire domestic situation could explain why the regime has been spouting so much belligerent rhetoric recently.”
