N. And S. Korea 'On The Verge Of Nuclear War'

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A senior North Korean diplomat warned a meeting of the UN General Assembly in New York that “a spark of fire could set off a thermonuclear war” on the Korean Peninsula.

Pak Kil-yon, Pyongyang’s vice-foreign minster, put the blame for the tense state of inter-Korean relations firmly on South Korea’s conservative government and claimed the citizens of the North feel “shame” and “political terror.”

Monday’s speech was the first time a representative of North Korea has addressed the General Assembly since Kim Jong-un assumed power after the death of his father in December last year.

“Since taking office, the current South Korean government has caused the worst situation in North-South relations by making all inter-Korean agreements null and void,” Pak said, referring to pacts with previous South Korean administrations that sought reconciliation between the two ideological enemies and an expansion of economic co-operation.

Describing relations between the two governments as in “total bankruptcy,” Pak dismissed the South Korean government of Lee Myung-bak with the comment, “History will bring them to justice.”

Neither the United States nor the UN escaped criticism, with Pak saying recent joint military manoeuvres between the US and South Korean troops were “reckless provocations.”

“Today, due to the continued US hostile policy towards the DPRK, the vicious cycle of confrontation and aggravation of tensions is an ongoing phenomenon on the Korean Peninsula, which has become the world’s most dangerous hot spot and where a spark of fire could set off a thermonuclear war,” Pak said.

      This has become the era of We are on the verge of World war 3! Now it’s North Korea and South Korea that are about to throw atomic cocktails at each other the Mid-East is ablaze that triggered Russia and Red China to warn the United States that any attack on Iran would seen as an attack on their countries and they would be willing to engage the U.S. into World War 3. Last week at a conference held by clerics leaders in Pakistan they denounced the anti-Islamic movie Innocence of Muslims and said this movie and the conflict it’s arousing among Muslims around the world could lead to clash of civilizations and World War 3. Let’s just face it we are in trouble on a global scale I have never witnessed so many conflicts at one time in my life any of them could unleashed a Nuclear war. I want a peaceful world I want to be assured that human life will go on for generations to come aren’t you tired of all this? I don’t want a argument because we will look out of control like all the World Leaders if you believe in peace just post “I want a better world!” :smile: :idea:

        It’s all designed to keep you bottled up in this world of “The world could end any minute now”. Thats what shows like Alex Jones and propably even this website are aimed at. Everytime Russia makes threats against the US…..they turn out to be empty and when the regime being attacked needs them the most they are silent. It wouldn’t surprise me if ALL countries are being controlled by the same round table of scumbags. Order out of Chaos is their motto. When the time comes they will start the war and put their feet up on the desk and laugh as we kill each other.

      North Korea would probably end up nuking themselves to death with their missile technology being what it is…

    • Anti-Zion

      Check NK & SK
      Check Japan & China

      just need Pakistan and India to kick off using a false flag like used today between Syria and Turkey and the USA can take on Iran and Russia

      Just to add Nukes are so yesterday and screw up the world for gods special people to take over so close your eyes, dream up a nasty biological weapon, times it by two and you will be close because Israel already has it’s bunkers ready to save it’s own population and everyone is expendable
