KOREAN HOT WAR COMING?
It's an act of war on the part of the U.S. if it stops Koreans ships. Obama is playing with fire. Korea has had years to develop contingency plans. They have been extremely sophisticated at clandestine operations.
The U.N. Security Council has passed a Resolution supposedly allowing the U.S. to inspect all North Korean shipping. It bans weapons exports. It bans most weapons imports. It authorizes the U.S. to destroy all such weapons.
Under the present situation where the Korean People's Army (KPA) is technically at war with the U.S. imperialists, and as the Armistice Agreement has lost its legal binding force, the KPA will promptly exercise the right to a pre-emptive strike to beat back the enemies' slightest provocation. — Pak Jae Gyong, vice-minister of the DPRK People's Armed Forces
