North Korean officials warned on Friday that Americans and its allies “will meet (a) dog’s death any time and in any place” if they continue to insult North Koreans, the official North Korean Central News Agency reported. North Koreans accuse South Korean army personnel stationed on the South Korean side of pointing “their fingers at KPA service personnel on guard duty, making weird remarks on April 7. On April 10 they mocked at the KPA side through disgusting expression and behavior.”
The North Koreans also accused personnel of pointing guns during military drills involving the U.S. military and other forces; and “kicking up a row” with loudspeakers..The North Korean Army are on alert and prepared to “mercilessly punish” the U.S. and its allies if provocations continue, the North Koreans said.
North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950. The United Nations authorized military action against North Korea. An agreement creating a demilitarized zone between the two nations was signed in 1953. It was not a peace treaty, per se, and the two nations are, technically, still at war. For more years than most people have been alive, South Korea has bitterly denounced the United States, South Korea, Japan and other nations it perceives to be tools of an American plot to defeat and overthrow the North Korean regime. North Korea has escalated nuclear missile tests to prepare for war against its enemies. The tests have had varying degrees of success. North Korean activities have been closely monitored by the United States and other nations for several decades.
