After threats against U.S., North Korea turns ire to South

In its latest bout of hostile rhetoric, North Korea on Friday warned of the possibility of "strong physical countermeasures" against South Korea in relation to tougher sanctions imposed this week by the United Nations.

The threat against South Korea came a day after the North said it would carry out a new nuclear test and more rocket launches as part of a new phase of confrontation with the United States.

The statement Friday from North Korea's Committee for Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said it would take action against South Korea if it "takes a direct part" in the U.N. sanctions.

    BLAH, BLAH, BLAH! Unless N. Korea's "leader" is ready to commit HIS country into commiting suicide this is just more sabre rattling!

    I don't think that government can get any more stupid. They think because they keep talking crap, that they can get concessions from the US and others. I guess when you are in charge of a country that has no means of backing their words, they feel the rhetoric will be reas suring to their people. It's time to put up or shut up.

    Hey Scottish Mama
    I tried posting an interesting article about Paul Ryan saying they could balance the bud get in ten years. Though that is probably not likely, one of the reasons is the $600 billion dollars of new revenue to be created by the tax hikes the republicans fought so hard against. Is that funny or what ?
