North Korea threatens 'special actions' to take out South Korean government

North Korea said Monday that it would soon initiate "special actions" aimed at destroying the South Korean president and his government.

North Korean armed forces will use "unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style" to carry out the actions, the official Korean Central News Agency said in a report, adding that the operation would take 3 or 4 minutes.

It did not specify what those actions would involve.

An unusual broadcast on North Korean state television also announced the planned measures and showed images of people throwing rocks at a caricature of Lee Myung-bak, the South Korean president.

North Korean state media have consistently lambasted the conservative Lee and his administration. Recent reports have described them as "rats."

    I think they are scared of their own people..... maybe its getting harder and harder for them to maintain the illusion that the rest of the world is out to crush them.

    they are trying everything in their power to provoke South Korea and the US into atleast a iincedent so they can point and say "see!!! see!! what have we been telling you!" - think their people are getting sick to death of the BS their government has put them through.
