North Korea vows to cancel Korean War ceasefire

North Korea vowed Tuesday to cancel the 1953 cease-fire that ended the Korean War, citing a U.S.-led push for punishing United Nations sanctions over its recent nuclear test and ongoing U.S.-South Korean joint military drills.

Without elaborating, the Korean People's Army Supreme Command warned of "surgical strikes" meant to unify the divided Korean Peninsula and of an indigenous, "precision nuclear striking tool." The statement came amid reports that Washington and North Korean ally Beijing have approved a draft of a UN Security Council resolution calling for sanctions in response to North Korea's Feb. 12 nuclear test. The draft is expected to be circulated at the UN this week.

Heated military rhetoric is common from North Korea when tensions rise on the Korean Peninsula and during U.S.-South Korean war games, but this latest statement is unusually specific. It threatens to block a communications line between North Korea and the United States at the border village separating the two Koreas, and to nullify the 60-year-old Korean War armistice agreement on March 11, when two weeks of U.S.-South Korean military drills will draw 10,000 South Korean and 3,500 U.S. forces. An earlier round of drills between the allies began earlier this month.

How far will North Korea go ?, because one day their bluff will be called. China is their ally but they are losing patience with the Koreans, and have already agreed to sanctions at the Utd Nations. Will China back them again in another war of attrition with Sth Korea, the Chinese lost an awfull lot of men in that conflict.As Nth Korea is a Communist country would Russia become involved, maybe not as they don't get on with China..Its in the melting pot folks because it would mean "loss of face" if the Nth Koreans were to back down.They talk the talk,but can they walk the walk ?

You know, NK leadership is like a pesky fly.

I swat it, but it just keeps coming back to bug me.

Perhaps, but if their secret intenton is to develop capable nuclear weapons, there is a problem.

I say pre-empt.

I see where the US and China jointly introduced a resolution in the UN Security Council for specific sanctions against N. Korea to hinder their weapons development.  I don't know the details but it sounds hopeful if the Chinese are with it.

North Korea probably just wants more aid from the west. They tend to throw these fits when they want something.

If they were serious they wouldn't make an announcement of it they would be on the march - why give their enemy a "heads up"?  Pretty sure they have their hand out too - someone should spit in it and send them on their way, what a nuisance they are.

They are a nuisance that could kill a lot of people if we don't exercise patience and forbearance.

I think it's more likely Best Korea is just asking for more aid. Though it's nice to see that China is cluing in to just how unstable the country is. Hopefully they'll take steps to correct that in the future.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
