North Korea raises missile launcher(CNN) — North Korea upped the temperature on its neighbors on Monday, warning in a new threat that it would not give any advance notice before attacking South Korea.

“Our retaliatory action will start without any notice from now,” Pyongyang said in a statement carried by its official news agency, KCNA.

North Korea said it was responding to what it called insults from the “puppet authorities” in the South, claiming that there had been a rally against North Korea in Seoul.

It called the rally a “monstrous criminal act.”

The renewed threats came as North Koreans celebrated the birthday of their country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, who launched the Korean War.

Earlier Monday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged the regime in Pyongyang to ditch its nuclear program and put a lid on its fiery rhetoric if it wants to hold talks.

“The United States has made clear many times what the conditions are for our entering talks and they haven’t changed,” Kerry said during an interview with CNN’s Jill Dougherty in Tokyo.

“The conditions have to be met where the North has to move towards denuclearization, indicate a seriousness in doing so by reducing these threats, stop the testing, and indicate it’s actually prepared to negotiate,” he said.

    Something is not right here! Our government doesnt have the nuts to disarm a threat as catastrophic and devistating as this, but yet has the nerve to try to disarm our citizens. Whats wrong with that pic? Instead of even contimplating using drones on US Citizens they need to be thinking about droning the total Crap completely out of North Korea

      The government isn't trying to disarm the American public. That's just more NRA paranoia, which you seem to repeat at every opportunity.That whole sales pitch started before Obama was elected. It has been reported many times that North Korea doesn't have a lot of missiles, but they might be able to strike Japan or Guam – not the USA.


    Here's what WILL happen when we negotiate: The North Koreans will agree to stop their nuclear program, the US will commit to providing massive 'aid' to prop up the regime, and then the North Koreans will laugh at our stupidity and resume work on bombs and missiles. With that lame-brain Kerry doing the negotiating, this is exactly what will happen. Just wait and see.
