Sea of Fire Care

November 30, 2011

Is today’s pun title a tad too subtle? Bear with me folks, I want to fulfil my personal quota of at least four blog posts per month.

Light 'em up!

*Yawn* The nefarious Norks have officially threatened yet another “Sea of Fire” on South Korea for the egregious crime of not quite putting up with their shit.

North Korea threatens ‘sea of fire’ on South over island military drills (Guardian link)

North Korea has threatened to turn Seoul’s presidential office into a “sea of fire” after South Korea conducted military drills near an island attacked by the North last year.

The exercises marked the first anniversary of North Korea’s artillery attack on the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong that killed two marines and two civilians.

The North Korean military warned on Thursday that “a similar sea of fire” may engulf Seoul’s presidential Blue House if South Korean forces ever fired a single shot into North Korea’s territory. The warning was carried by North Korean state media.

Hard to believe it’s been a year since those belligerent dick-splashes shelled Yeongpyeong but, irritatingly, it’s all-too-easy to believe they’ve been issuing the usual bullshit threats and warnings. Their “Sea of Fire” trope has been deployed before and, frankly, it’s getting fucking dull, although it has been remarked that totalitarian regimes really don’t care if they conduct themselves in the most clichéd and predictable manner, such behaviour being integral to their modus operandi. The year is drawing to a close, and it is obviously a little late to raise this hope, but the perfect Christmas present for us liberal hawks would be the sight of Kim Jong-il’s bloodied and battered body being hauled on to the back of a pick-up truck by rejoicing North Koreans.
