In view of the situation getting graver as the days go by, the NPRK Supreme Command special operation action group issues the following notice upon authorization:
The special actions of our revolutionary armed forces will soon meet the reckless challenge of the group of traitors.
Those actions are an eruption of public anger and resentment, and a sacred war of all service personnel and people to protect the dignity of our supreme leadership.
Their targets are the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors, the arch criminals, and the group of rat like elements, including conservative media destroying the mainstay of the fair public opinion.
Once the above said special operations kick off, they will reduce all the rat like groups and the bases for provocation to ashes in three of four minutes, in much shorter time, by unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style.
Our revolutionary forces do not make empty threats.
This is an extremely unusual bold threat from the North. One which in some form they will have to back with action, due to the extremely public nature of the statement.
Things are already tense after the earlier attempted launch of a rocket by North Korea.
Japan and South Korea have called emergency meetings. Their troops, and those of the US in the area have gone on alert.
Update: Korean Central News Agency (North Korean state run media) has now released their own article about it. They have been nice enough to include an English version.
Theories about the promised destruction are leaning towards it being a cyber attack.
