No "wipe out" today
North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency said Sunday the country is ready to "wipe out" any aggressors who try to start a war with the country, but gave no hints as to whether it is planning a missile test, Kyodo reports.
Well, we survived Sunday, so, I'm hoping world peace will begin on Monday.
Meanwhile, Japan's foreign minister Taro Aso said Sunday it will be inevitable for the United Nations Security Council to consider imposign sanctions on North Korea if Pyongyang conducts a missile test:
Aso, who made the remarks during a television program, later said Japan will seek an immediate convening of the U.N. Security Council if North Korea goes ahead with a test-firing of a Taepodong-2 long-range ballistic missile.
