North Korea warned Friday it will rain “merciless blows” on South Korea, the United States and Japan if they lead the U.N. Security Council to sanctions or other punitive measures on the North over the sinking of a South Korean warship Seoul has blamed on Pyongyang.
Choe Thae Bok, a secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, issued the warning at a national meeting in Pyongyang to mark the 46th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s start of work at the party’s Central Committee, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.
“If the U.S. and Japanese reactionaries and the puppet group of traitors finally ignite a war despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK, all its servicepersons and people, their hearts burning with towering resentment and hatred, will courageously turn out in the just struggle to defend the country and deal merciless blows at any act for ‘punishment’ and ‘retaliation’ and ‘sanctions’ encroaching upon its state interests,” KCNA quoted Choe as saying.
Wonder what they’ll do? Blow up oil rigs?
