    North Korea threatens war on US over Kim Jong-un movie



    North Korea has promised "merciless" retaliation if a forthcoming Hollywood movie about killing Kim Jong-un is released, say agencies.
    A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in state media that the movie's release would be an "act of war".
    He did not mention the title, but a Hollywood movie called The Interview with a similar plot is due in October.

    --snip--


    The North Korea spokesman was quoted by the state KCNA news agency as saying: "Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated."
    He added that the "reckless US provocative insanity" of mobilising a "gangster filmmaker" to challenge the North's leadership was triggering "a gust of hatred and rage" among North Korean people and soldiers. Link.


    Should America be worried?

    There was once a Peter Sellers comedy film called "the Mouse that roared" and this is beginning to remind me of that except in Sellers movie, people weren't starving or brutalised as they are in North Korea.

    No but there still are unofficial diplomatic relations via Sweden

    With no way to deliver them. No if the NK leadership truly went crazy enough to commit suicide by throwing the bomb at South Korea, then I'd be worried.

    Being that the US has tens of thousands of troops there. (one might be my Son-in-law shortly) I tend to have reservations.

    But they can deliver.

    I'd tell fat boy to bring it. International dictators are cowards and pussies. He's no different.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I guess he didn't mind his portrayal in Team America.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Isn't North Korea always threatening war against us?
