North Korea sends South Korea a fax threatening to “strike mercilessly without notice” after the recent protests in Seoul among the secretive regime. The bizarre action of sending a warning of war via a fax seems almost child-like.
According to CNN on Dec. 20, the death anniversary of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong II was earlier this week and conservative protestors rallied in Seoul burning the North Korean flag as well as objects in effigy of the country’s past and present leaders.
North Korea is already looking more unstable than usual after Kim Jong Un’s uncle was executed. Jang Song Thaek, was not only Kim Jong Un’s uncle but also his adviser. The two countries have gone back and forth with their unsettled views about each other, more so this year than before. CNN said North Korea and South Korea have been “seesawing this year.”
Now North Korea sends South Korea a fax threatening to strike when they least expect it, is this really the way a country in 2013 should be doing business. You almost expect North Korea to start posting some teen-like disparaging words against their enemy on social network or text them their next threat.
When Kim Jong Un’s uncle was executed, it unsettled the country’s neighbors and cast more light on the country’s unstable leadership.
