North Korea warning: Defense Ministry fax threatens imminent nuclear war

North Korea warning threatens imminent nuclear war. The Defense Ministry sent a fax to South Korea voicing their opposition to joint military drills with the U.S. According to the Associated Press on Jan. 29, the two allies are about to begin military drills.

North Korea's increasingly shrill opposition to the annual joint drills named Foal Eagle looks very similar to the kind of harsh language that preceded the start of the same exercises last year and led to a steep rise in tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea warning is just the latest in a series of ongoing threats that have never ben acted upon. Experts think that this round of shrieking will not be as bad as last year's. This propaganda cycle is gearing up because North Korea's leaders fear that the U.S. is building up troops in order to invade and take control of the peninsula.

The U.S. and South Korea will be conducting a live fire exercise. Troops from both countries will drill troops on land, sea and air.

The latest North Korea warning comes sixty years after an armistice was declared with South Korea. 30,000 troops remain on South Korean soil. The drills are expected to last until April 2014.
