Well, Joe Biden did warn us that our adversaries would challenge Barack Obama if he was elected. Looks like North Korea is doing just that. In a statement released today, the government in Pyongyang said the North is prepared for war against the South and would consider retaliating if the U.S. and South Korea go through with planned training exercises.
The North Korean saber rattling corresponds to Secretary of State Hillary Clintonâ€™s visit to Seoul today. As of yet, the U.S. has issued no formal response, but I imagine the Obama administration will not be pleased. Look for U.S./North Korea relations to remain as strained as ever.
