North Korea condemns U.S. missile test

North Korea has come out and called our missile defense test a threat and vowed to strengthen its defense measures in response.

Something called the North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, whatever that is, released a statement saying the U.S. test, which was conducted Friday over the Pacific Ocean, "was aimed at attacking us and intercepting our missiles."

"...intercepting our missles." Well duh! Are they serious... Of course they had to throw in the "attacking us" in there as well. Not sure how you attak with a defense system designed to blow missles out of the sky... but I digress.

The committee also called the United States the "the main culprit" in the threat of war on the Korean peninsula.

"It is a folly that the United States wields the truncheons of power in order to scare someone into submission ... This only leads the army and the people to firm up their determination to build up our self-defensive military deterrence," the statement said.

Riiight... it's our fault that North Korea threatens the world with nuclear weapons and how dare us, how dare us ever plan to defend ourselves from the likes of mad men with potential nukes.
