North Korea grouchy, threatens to blow Dong-A Ilbo away

In an article yesterday, the Rodong Shinmun said South Korea’s conservative press was agitating for intra-tribal war, and warned that the stronghold of these scheming reports—Seoul’s Jung-gu, Jongno-gu and Yeongdeungpo-gu (i.e., where Seoul’s major newspapers and broadcasters are located)—had been selected as the first targets of the war of vengence, and (presumably) the North Korean military was only awaiting the order.

Perhaps more interestingly, the report called out the Dong-A Ilbo by name, accusing it and other conservative media of slandering North Korea after its recent military parade to celebrate the birthday of Kim Il-sung.

The North warned that while the South Korean government was deploying more police to the media companies and strengthening security, it would be no use, and the media companies would pay a tremendous price in the Korean-style holy war.

Ahead of this, on March 23, the Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army threatened to raze “within three to four minutes” the South Korean government, the Dong-A Ilbo, KBS, MBC, YTN and other media through a till-now unseen special action.

Boy, the North Koreans are cute when they’re angry.

    Goodbye Yeongdeungpo-gu and goodbye National Assembly Building, Korea Financial Investment Association, Yoido Full Gospel Church, 63 Building, headquarters of LG, KBS, MBC, and the Korea Exchange Center.

    really…. how is North Korean planning to do it? and is North Korea that suicidal?

    Special forces, that fast and that accurate. I call a massive cyber attack. All the newspapers and government web sites will be shut down at the same time. Anything real would be suicidal.

    Just because they say insane stuff all the time doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t really crazy.

    They really thought their ICBM would work by the way, even to the point of bringing in loads of international media.

    That 75lb dude in HS Social Studies who used to talk to himself and eat paint chips really did think he could kick your ass, maybe the Norks do too.
