NKorea Puts Troops On Alert, Warns Of War Danger

There are 7 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Mar 9, 2009, titled NKorea Puts Troops On Alert, Warns Of War Danger. In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

SEOUL, South Korea; North Korea put its troops on alert and cut the last hot line to Seoul on Monday as the American and South Korean militaries began joint maneuvers. The communist regime warned that even the slightest provocation could trigger war.

The North stressed that provocation would include any attempt to interfere with its impending launch of a satellite into orbit. U.S. and Japanese officials suspect the launch is a cover for a test of a long-range attack missile and have suggested they might move to intercept the rocket.

"Shooting our satellite for peaceful purposes will precisely mean a war," North Korea's military threatened in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. Any interception attempt will draw "a just, retaliatory strike," it said.

Yes they should and they don't sound like they are playing around. It is not known for sure that they are launching test missles.

But not while claiming food aid. North Korea is a disgrace to the human race. Thieves.
