North Korea warns of attack if ships checked - Yahoo! NewsNorth Korea, facing international sanction for this week's nuclear test, threatened on Wednesday to attack the South after Seoul joined a U.S.-led initiative to check vessels suspected of carrying equipment for weapons of mass destruction.
The threat comes after South Korean media reported earlier that Pyongyang had restarted a plant that makes weapons-grade plutonium.
"Any hostile act against our peaceful vessels including search and seizure will be considered an unpardonable infringement on our sovereignty and we will immediately respond with a powerful military strike," the spokesman for the North's army was quoted as saying by the official KCNA news agency
It looks like things around Korea could get bad very quickly. Do you think this is just hot air from NKorea or would they actually attack SKorea if SKorea does end up searching a NKorea vessel?
What would this mean for the US? If SKorea was attacked by NKorea and the US responded could we handle a war in Korea along with Iraq and Afghan?
