N. Korea sparks crisis at industrial complex

North Korea on Wednesday stirred up fresh unease in Northeast Asia, blocking hundreds of South Korean workers from entering a joint industrial complex that serves as an important symbol of cooperation between the two countries.

The move comes a day after Pyongyang announced plans to restart a nuclear reactor it shut down five years ago and follows weeks of bombastic threats against the United States and South Korea from the North's young leader, Kim Jong Un, and his government.

    What are the only things America exports?
    Answer: Guns, Missile and Tanks
    Where is Americas production ?
    Everywhere else but here
    What happens when all countries have been invaded and occupied ?
    Who are we going to sell those weapons to?
    We're going to be in the business of selling *drones* not only to Commercial, Military and the private sector but to other countries who want to keep their people in line.
