North Korea threatens 'sacred war' with the South

North Korea threatened Thursday to launch a "sacred war" after South Korea completed large military exercises near the volatile inter-Korean border.

"The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) are getting fully prepared to launch a sacred war of justice of Korean style based on the nuclear deterrent at anytime necessary," North Korea's defense minister Kim Yong Chun said, according to the state-run news agency.

"The South Korean puppet forces perpetrated such grave military provocation as renewing their shelling against the DPRK during their recent exercises for a war of aggression in the West Sea of Korea," Chun said. "This indicates that the enemy's scenario for aggression aimed at the start of another Korean War, has reached the phase of its implementation.

The long-planned South Korean exercises, billed as the largest land and air winter drills, were conducted just 15 miles from the North Korean border.

    The north has been throwing a b**** fit for half of a century now... They know that we could wipe out their leadership in a heartbeat if we wanted to, the reason for all the sanctions is because we dont want to go to war with them is because of the civilians, they are all incredible devoted to their leader, and despise america like a vegan despises veal.the reason for all threats (in my opinion) is to keep morals up. No one wants to clean up the mess after the war is the main reason we dont want to fight... How do you get an entire brainwashed population to cooperate?
