A bizarre plot by North Korea to attack the G20 summit using balloons filled with biological or chemical weapons emerged last night.
The claim that ageing tyrant Kim Jong-Il will attempt to disrupt the gathering -- attended by David Cameron and other world leaders -- has been taken seriously by Western diplomats.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has asked China, North Korea's chief ally, to rein in Kim. And security is now at red alert for the conference in the South Korean capital Seoul.
Kim Jong-Un, Kim's third son and expected successor, is thought to have been ordered to find ways to overshadow the meeting.
His father's secretive regime has acted aggressively in the past at times of internal change, external tension or when the rival South is the focus of world attention.
In 1987, North Korean agents planted a bomb on a South Korean plane, killing all 115 people on board, a year before Seoul hosted the Olympics.
In 1983, they carried out a bombing during a trip to Burma by the South Korean president, Chun Doo-hwan.
South Korean websites quoted claims that the North had considered sending 20 different deadly biochemical weapons attached to balloons and parachutes across the border.
The campaign is said to be led by General Kim Kyok-Sik, who commands the North's frontline corps, at the orders of Kim's heir apparent.
Other possibilities were said to include sending floating mines into South Korean waters.
Although China's presence at the summit is expected to deter the young pretender from launching a direct attack, diplomatic sources said some show of strength was possible.
Among the most likely are a symbolic incursion into South Korean territorial waters or testing a missile in nearby airspace.

Thanks Whenifhow for the link.
When will the world finally step on these NK cockroaches?
Why does B. Hussein look odder than usual in that pic?
Oh..I guess it’s the guy behind him. His hand is visible where Hussein’s elbow should be and it makes his right arm look odd.
The U.S. attacked the summit by sending its Buffoon in Chief.
"Among the most likely are a symbolic incursion into South Korean territorial waters or testing a missile in nearby airspace."that's interesting, because of this:
before I get upset....will the obamanation be there?
Thanks, JJ, for the ping. What a strange “family”....
Who’s the chick with the “Why do I have to stand next to this dork?” look on her face?
Everyone is Captain Kirk.
I’m surprised he isn’t bowing to the WORLD in that picture.
He looks like a 6 grader in a school picture
didja notice who’s in the center of the pic, and who’s not?
who cares? We should pull out of Korea. Maybe the Koreans will be interested in buying some American goods if they have to defend their border without us. Same goes for Japan as far as I’m concerned.
Oh, look. It’s the group photo of our new Overlords! “Shared Growth Beyond Crisis” -— wonder who came up with that little gem?
Oops, I’ll have to look at the site, must be the photo was from a disallowed source.
Thanks for the ping! Kim must really be losing his mind if he tries something like this.
The G20 people, smiling and thinking they are so clever and worldly, haven’t a clue.
The rest of the world, and who can blame them, is going to turn it’s back on the U.S. and the Dems out of control spending and let us sink.
