Ooo… North Korea is very, very angry about a planned South Korean anti-sub drill in the West Sea:
North Korea warned South Korean fishermen on Tuesday to stay away from disputed border waters and threatened a “strong physical retaliation” against a coming South Korean naval drills.
The drills — five days of antisubmarine exercises starting Thursday — were scheduled in response to the sinking in March of a South Korean warships near the disputed western sea border that killed 46 sailors. South Korea said a North Korean torpedo split the ship, the Cheonan, in two.
On Tuesday, North Korea’s western military command “made a decisive resolution to counter the reckless naval firing projected by the group of traitors with strong physical retaliation,” said a statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.
