Is North Korea Setting Conditions for A Terrorist Attack Within South Korea?

I am wondering if these claims and rhetoric from the Kim regime is being used to set conditions for a terrorist attack within South Korea in response to any future measures the US may take against North Korea?:

North Korea threatened Friday to launch an anti-terrorist attack against the intelligence agencies of South Korea and the United States as it accused them of plotting to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

North Korea’s Ministry of State Security claimed that a terrorists’ group supported by the CIA and South Korea’s intelligence agency infiltrated North Korea to stage a terrorist attack against the North Korean leader by using a bio-chemical substance.

“We will ferret out and mercilessly destroy to the last one the terrorists of the U.S. CIA” and South Korea’s National Intelligence Service “targeting the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership,” North Korea’s Ministry of State Security said in an English-language statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.  [Yonhap]

  1. You despicable puppets of Kim Jong Un you talk and threats mean nothing. Kim Jong Un and his whore sister will die soon.

  2. Don’t sugarcoat it, Doug. Tell us how you really feel.

  3. North Koreans so sadly misunderstand liberals and capitalism. They could be like Hong Kong or Vietnam and keep their commie government while making cheap suits for Westerners with too much money…

  4. North Korea is planning a Vietnam style TET offensive. Read tea leaves. It will be hell to pay. Probably will come in the winter of 2017-2018, when the rice paddies are frozen over.

  5. Furthermore I think this grandstanding and threating posture on North Korean part in this matter, could be a deverion to throw Americans off guard. This type of situation, calls for many 360 degree situation awareness. There is no doubt the North Korean are on their way. Underground tunnels should be scrutinized under forward units bases, as far as sixty kilometer into South Korea. Also cities buses with larg number of men and women that look smaller than South Korean, should be looked at carefully

  6. This is a deversion by the North Koreans, something is just not right with all this attention grabbing by the Kim Jung Un saying, “look at me I am over here”

  7. Something is just not right. North is very brave and confident in antagonizing U.S. I would imagine seventy five percent of north Korean forces are in place and ready to go to war, probably will come out of the tunnels high on drugs on the north Korean side. All or nothing blitzkrieg to gain as mush territory as possible.
