North Korea Warns South Korea Of Attack

I guess with all of the saber-rattling from Ahmadinejad, Chavez, and al Sadr, Kim Jong-Il was feeling a little "rone-ry."

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea threatened South Korea with destruction Sunday after Seoul's top military officer said he would consider attacking the communist nation if it tried to carry out a nuclear attack.

The statement from North Korea's official news agency marked the third straight day of bellicose rhetoric from the North, which is angry over the harsher line the South's new president has taken against the country since assuming office last month.

"Our military will not sit idle until warmongers launch a pre-emptive strike," said an unidentified KCNA military commentator. "Everything will be in ashes, not just a sea of fire, if our advanced pre-emptive strike once begins." (H/T - CNN)

They're kidding, right? This is a country that cannot afford to light its cities at night, but they're going to wipe out South Korea and walk away unscathed? It's time to cut back on the rice wine, Kim.
