GENEVA (AFP) A North Korean diplomat said Thursday that tensions on the Korean peninsula were running so high over the sinking of a South Korean warship that "war may break out at any moment."
In a speech to the international Conference on Disarmament, Ri Jang-Gon, deputy permanent representative for North Korea at the United Nations in Geneva, blamed the "grave situation" on South Korea and the United States.
"The present situation of the Korean peninsula is so grave that a war may break out at any moment," he said.
International investigators on May 20 announced their findings that a North Korean submarine had fired a heavy torpedo to sink the warship, in what has been described as the most serious act of aggression from the North since the Korean war 60 years ago.
Forty-six South Korean crew died when the warship sank near the disputed Yellow Sea border with the North in March in mysterious circumstances after a reported explosion.
South Korea has announced a series of reprisals including cutting off trade with its communist neighbour.
The North has denied involvement, and responded to the South's reprisals with threats of war.
Ri reiterated that North Korea had nothing to do with the sinking.
He claimed that North Koreans "were making their utmost efforts to attain the goal of a powerful and prosperous country by the year 2012" and needed a "peaceful environment" to do so.

Afflicting us with fear
Predicting war for millions
In the hope that one appears...”

So I guess the Obama Regime will agree the latter part of this statement. If NK doesn't watch it obama will talk mean to them.
North Korea upset because the Israel incident has taken over the news. All the nations are distracted and have quit offering carrots to the NoKo’s.
