North Korea threatens pre-emptive strike against US

According to published reports, North Korea is threatening a pre-emptive strike against the United States, while simultaneously promising to go ahead with the six-party talks aimed at reducing tensions in that part of the world.

The North poured out anti-US rhetoric -- a tactic it has used in the past before entering negotiations -- claiming that Washington's "hostile policies" led it to develop nuclear weapons as a deterrent, and warning against any attack to dislodge its leadership.

"The United States should be aware that the choice of a pre-emptive attack is not only theirs," the North's official news agency quoted the Cabinet newspaper Minju Joson as saying. "To stand against force with force is our unswerving method of response."

North Korea on Tuesday repeated claims that its nuclear weapons protect regional peace.

"It is in the East Asian region, including the Korean Peninsula, where the US moves for vicious attacks and war ... are carried out most seriously," the Minju Joson said. "It is our nuclear deterrent that basically guarantees peace and stability."

Lil Kim Jong Il definitely needs to have his head examined.

In addition to getting new shoes that won't hurt his ankles . . . on the other hand, he can continue to wear his 5" platform shoes and one can hope that he will trip at an unfortunate location . . .
