    Pyongyang scraps armistice amid heightened saber rattling

    (CNN) -- Saber-rattling rose Monday to new levels on the Korean peninsula, as Pyongyang officials "scrapped" the armistice credited for nearly 60 years of uneasy peace and then failed to answer a hotline phone."The Korean Armistice Agreement is to be scrapped completely just from today," said a spokesman for the North Korean military -- the Korean People's Army Supreme Command -- according to Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party.
    North Korea cited the U.N. Security Council's unanimous passage last Thursday of tougher sanctions against Pyongyang for carrying out missile and nuclear tests.
    "The collective sanction is precisely a declaration of war and an act of war against the DPRK," said the newspaper, using the initials of North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    NK not answering...hmmmm....Is China behind this escalation? Is this just another in the long line of extortion tactics used by NK? What's going on here?

    Different year, same North Korea. Even the Chinese seem to be getting tired of them.

    I'd be REALLY surprised if the DPRK did anything particularly "froggy" right now and I suspect that the saber rattling is primarily geared for the internals.

    Does this mean that we can drop a dirty nuke into downtown Pyongyang and say "hey, you declared war".

    And/or to give a bit of support to their new best friend, Iran, by diverting some of the attention. Which, by the way, won't matter because the radicals in Israel are going to bomb Iran soon enough.

    As a side note, Luther. If NK should go ape**** crazy and attack US mainland - it won't - they'd hit the West Coast. When I was working a lot with Az emergency management people, someone who knows things, told me the real threat to Arizona is California. He said that any major event in California such as a tsunami, major earthquake, or a nuke or two would send much of California east to Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas where millions of refugees would create a second crisis further inland. Imagine shopping for a loaf of bread when San Diego just showed up in your neighborhood.

    It is difficult for you, not being able to read and comprehend, isn't it? Or perhaps you should have taken numbers theory in school. It is very obvious that you did not. The radicals of Israel ≠ all Jews. In fact, the radicals in Israel don't represent most Jews, from what I have read. Either you knew this and made a failed attempt to taunt or you have no grasp of what you pretend to know, or both.
