North Korea Watch: Empty Threats

When stories like this are even acknowledged, it's usually by right-wing American think tanks agitating for "confrontation" with the North, or paranoid expats who think they need to move as far south as possible and stock up and instant noodles.

But just read this:

"Should the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung-bak group threaten the DPRK with nukes, it will retaliate against them with nukes," the spokesman warned.
"If they tighten 'sanctions' and push 'confrontation' to an extreme phase, the DPRK will react with a merciless retaliation of its own style and an all-out war of justice," he said.

North Korea has, at best, 0.2 percent the capability that the United States has. How can anyone take this saber-rattling seriously?
