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.
