WOO-HOO … I THINK THE NORTH KOREANS MIGHT BE A TAD UPSET WITH US.

Gee, Maybe we should just apologize since we’re busy in other places.
No wait. Before we do anything or try and respond, we should check first with Europe to see what they say.  Maybe they’ll be able to help since they like us now. ?  Hmmm. Maybe they only like Barry.  Maybe we could just send him? Hey. I like that. Lets send Barry over there to talk with them.

They so seem a bit touchy here but I wonder if they’re bluffing.

What?  Me Worry?

btw ... Are you folks back home getting this story this way? 

North Korea threatens full scale war if rocket is intercepted
North Korea says it will wage war on America, Japan and South Korea if any attempt is made to intercept the launch of a rocket it claims is intended to put a satellite into space.

It has also cut off its border and telephone links with the South in protest at military exercises by American and South Korean troops which began on Monday.

Plans for a launch were first picked up by satellite imagery, with foreign intelligence agencies saying it was a test of a long-range Taepodong-2 missile with the capacity to hit parts of the United States.

The United States said it would shoot down the missile if it headed towards its territory. Japan has suggested it might try to intercept any launch, even if the payload is a communications satellite as claimed by Pyongyang.

“If the enemies recklessly opt for intercepting our satellite, our revolutionary armed forces will launch without hesitation a just retaliatory strike operation,” the general staff of the North Korean army said in a statement on state media. It singled out the United States, Japan and South Korea as targets.

“Shooting our satellite for peaceful purposes will precisely mean a war,” it said.

The North has put its army on full alert in the face of the annual spring military joint exercises begun today by the South Koreans and Americans.

It shut the border point which allows South Koreans to visit a special industrial zone in the city of Kaesong which is funded and run by South Korean companies. The South said 726 people had been turned back.

“It is nonsensical to maintain a normal communications channel at a time when the South Korean puppets are getting frantic with the above-said war exercises, levelling guns at fellow countrymen in league with foreign forces,” the North said.

Last week it also said it could not guarantee the safety of civilian aircraft which approached North Korean airspace during the exercises, causing airlines to adjust their routes.

This threat in particular is beyond the standard fare of North Korean rhetoric. It comes after six months of political uncertainty in relations between North Korea and the West, which had been improving slightly in the wake of a deal supposed to bring an end to its nuclear weapons programme.

Most western analysts linked the uncertainty to the stroke believed to have been suffered by the North’s leader, Kim Jong-il, last August.

This weekend he emerged to cast his ballot in elections for the country’s official parliament, in which he was a candidate.

Voting was expected to be unanimous. Only one candidate’s name appeared on each ballot, and while it was theoretically possible to cross that candidate’s name off, electors had to do so in a special booth, making clear they were dissenters.

The main focus of interest during these elections was rumours that Kim’s youngest son, Kim Jong-woon, would stand.

There is as yet no clear sign of a succession to the leadership. If the rumours were confirmed, Jong-woon would be the only one of the three sons to have been appointed to any official position, a clear sign that he was being marked out.

But as yet no names of candidates other than Kim senior have been given to the outside world.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
