UNITED STATES ACCUSED OF "ZEALOUSLY INCITING HOSTILITY"
From the Sydney Morning Herald : "North Korea's defence chief has warned that Pyongyang could also launch a pre-emptive attack against the United States, with state media saying soldiers were ready to be 'human bombs'.
"'A pr-eemptive attack is not (the) monopoly of the US, and North Korea will never sit idle till it is exposed to a preemptive attack of the US," Defence Minister Kim Il-Chol said, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.
"'The US...is zealously inciting hostility toward North Korea while floating all sorts of sheer fictions, utterly indifferent to the talks," he said.
"The whole army is replete with the spirit of devotedly defending the leader and all the servicepersons are reliably defending the country and socialism in the spirit of readily becoming human bombs, the spirit of suicide bombing. It has modern offensive and defensive means capable of coping with any war.'"
