    Those ****ed up sabre-rattling SOBs. Somebody ought to give those brats a good kick in the pants. They make their latest empty threats at a conference on disarmament, bunch of pricks.

    North Korea threatens South with "final destruction"

    GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea threatened South Korea with "final destruction" during a debate at the United Nations Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday, saying it could take further steps after a nuclear test last week.

    "As the saying goes, a new-born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea's erratic behavior would only herald its final destruction," North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong told the meeting.

    Jon's comments drew quick criticism from other nations, including South Korea, France, Germany and Britain, whose ambassador Joanne Adamson said such language was "completely inappropriate" and the discussion with North Korea was heading in the wrong direction.

    "It cannot be allowed that we have expressions which refer to the possible destruction of U.N. member states," she said.

    Spanish Ambassador Javier Gil Catalina said the comment left him stupefied and appeared to be a breach of international law.

    "In the 30 years of my career I've never heard anything like it and it seems to me that we are not speaking about something that is even admissible, we are speaking about a threat of the use of force that is prohibited by Article 2.4 of the United Nations charter," Catalina said.

    Since the North tested a nuclear bomb last week in defiance of U.N. resolutions, its southern neighbor has warned it could strike the isolated state if it believed an attack was imminent.

    Pyongyang said the aim of the test was to bolster its defenses given the hostility of the United States, which has led a push to impose sanctions on North Korea.

    "Our current nuclear test is the primary countermeasure taken by the DPRK in which it exercised its maximum self-restraint," said the North Korean diplomat Jon.

    "If the U.S. takes a hostile approach toward the DPRK to the last, rendering the situation complicated, it (North Korea) will be left with no option but to take the second and third stronger steps in succession," he said, without indicating what that might entail.

    North Korea has already told key ally China that it is prepared to stage one or two more tests this year to force the United States into diplomatic talks, a source with direct knowledge of the message told Reuters last week.

    "OFFENSIVE"

    U.S. Ambassador Laura Kennedy said she found North Korea's threat on Tuesday profoundly disturbing and later tweeted that it was "offensive".

    Poland's representative suggested North Korea's participation in the U.N. forum should be limited.

    Impoverished and malnourished North Korea is one of the most heavily sanctioned states in the world.

    It is still technically at war with South Korea after a 1950-53 civil war ended in a mere truce.

    Washington and its allies are believed to be pushing to tighten the noose around North Korea's financial transactions in a bid to starve its leadership of funding.

    Jon said last week's test was an act of self-defense against nuclear blackmail by the United States, which wanted to block North Korea's economic development and its fundamental rights.

    "It is the disposition and firm will of the army and people of the DPRK to counter high-handed policy with tough-fist policy and to react to pressure and sanctions with an all-out counter-action," he said.

    Jon said the United States had conducted most of the nuclear tests and satellite launches in history, and he described its pursuit of U.N. Security Council resolutions against North Korea as "a breach of international law and the height of double standards".

    Neither Russia nor China, which are veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council, spoke at Tuesday's meeting in Geneva.

    Before its nuclear test, North Korea was already facing growing diplomatic pressure at the United Nations.

    The U.N. Human Rights Council is widely expected to order an inquiry next month into its leaders' responsibilities for crimes against humanity.

    Such a sad situation. Such a tiny percentage of the people causing all the problems and the vast majority just suffering intolerably.

    Yeah, Kim Jong Un and everybody around him definitely need to be killed and then pissed on, but my heart goes out to the poor, misled people that live there. It's a sad and difficult situation. Most of the people there are innocent, yet have been brain washed into thinking that everywhere but N. Korea is the devil and they're willing to lay down their lives for what they believe the greater good is. How can you even start to occupy such a place? That situation is going to end terribly with N. Korea getting the worst of it. Hopefully they don't harm anyone else on their way down.

    Paranoid or not, two things are pretty clear:

    1) The United States isn't going to war in North Korea.

    2) North Korea is not a threat to the United States.

    The sad thing is the North Koreans should spend more time trying to feed their people than these stupid tests and acts of aggression.

    they don't have to be a threat to us and they could sell a bomb to a group similar to aq (though they're not doing too hot lately). it's not as if they're afraid to kill themselves. But let's exclude that, since they're being watched awfully close right now and would certainly have a a hard time pulling that off. what if they just had a truck drive close to the border of south korea and blow themselves up?
