Play it safe, North Korea warns South

North Korea issued its latest dispatch of ominous rhetoric Tuesday, telling foreigners in South Korea they should take steps to secure shelter or evacuation to protect themselves in the event of a conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

The unnerving message came as Japan set up missile defenses in Tokyo, and North Korean workers failed to turn up for work in the industrial complex jointly operated by North and South Korea.

In the statement published by state-run media Tuesday, the North's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee reiterated accusations that Washington and Seoul were seeking to provoke a war with Pyongyang.

    I can't wait until the end of April to get here, The war games will be over, little Kim can say he backed down the imperialist forces and life will go on until the next time.

    You are right Bombo. This little dude is unpredictable. Let's just hope he's following in the footsteps of his father and just likes to mouth off.

      As I have heard his father & grandfather always had a way out, but for this guy they do not know? Somehow he has to save face and still look powerful.

    Kim IS playing mind-games and unfortunately, I bet half of the world will believe that the United States and S. Korea started it. The latest round of military exercises have been planned for a year...so, we've done nothing out of the ordinary except move the radar platform, and put up defense systems.
