NK threatens `nuclear disaster` against S. Korea
MARCH 02, 2011 10:00  
North Korea threatened South Korea again Tuesday, the second day of the South Korea-U.S. joint military drill Key Resolve, saying, 밨isk of a war is mounting on the Korean Peninsula. If war breaks out, it will only entail a nuclear disaster.

The North뭩 Korean Central News Agency quoted the Rodong Shinmun, the official daily of the Workers` Party, as saying in an editorial Tuesday, "Belligerent South Korean war maniacs are pushing ahead with the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle military drills jointly with the U.S. under the assumption of invasion of the North.

South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin toured a frontline unit in the western section of the inter-Korean border Tuesday.

"However good a plan we have in place to counter the North뭩 aggression, it only must entail action, he said. 밒 urge our military units to take action first before reporting rather than asking at the site whether to open fire in the event of a military operation.

Kim said this at 7:55 a.m. when briefed by 1st Army Corps chief Choi Jong-il at the Army뭩 command control center in an underground bunker. 밒 ask that our military use its imagination about the various types of possible attacks (by the North) and constantly hold discussions, Kim added.
