North Korea threatens South Korea and U.S. over military exercises

Good versus evil, and vice versa. Since the truce in 1953, North and South Korea have been hurling insults at each other.

As the U.S.-South Korea war games approaches, the North's state news agency has issued a warning to the South, saying that the exercises could result to a "deadlock and unimaginable holocaust" and that "disaster will follow should they go ahead with the nuclear war drills."

It was a stern statement. "We sternly warn the U.S. and the south Korean authorities to stop the dangerous military exercises which may push the situation on the peninsula and the north-south ties to a catastrophe," the news agency KCNA added.

South Korea has already responded to the press release, confirming that it will go ahead in spite of the threats. South Korea also questioned North's sincerity, adding that the North is the bully and not the other way around.

"If North Korea actually commits military aggression at the excuse of what is a normal exercise we conduct as preparation for emergency, our military will mercilessly and decisively punish them," Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told Reuters.

On a separate note, North Korea has proposed a Lunar New Year truce on Thursday to stop the seemingly endless criticisms. South Korea's Yonhap News Agency said that North Korea's bizarre proposal is questionable.
