N.Korea Threatens S.Korean Marines with 'Annihilation'
In this video grab from MBC, North Korean propaganda leaflets are found on Baeknyeong Island in the West Sea on Monday.
North Korea on Monday floated hundreds of propaganda leaflets into South Korea threatening the "annihilation" of the 6th Marine Brigade on Baeknyeong Island, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
The burst of belligerence comes less than a week after the execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong-uns uncle Jang Song-taek, who was seen as a moderate.
The previous day, the North Korean propaganda website, Uriminzokkiri also threatened to "mercilessly throw a battering ram" at the South Korean government, calling its response to the execution of Jang a "political provocation."
Hundreds of the leaflets were found around the island on Monday morning, according to the JCS.
The North called the 6th Marine Brigade the "first target to annihilate," adding, "Means of strike with unprecedented destructive power have already set their sights on the target and are ready to fire."
Another leaflet said, "Baeknyeong Island will turn into a huge tomb." Some leaflets featured a picture of a burned skull and bones.
But a military spokesman said "no special movements of North Korean forces have been detected either on the coast close to South Koreas northwesternmost islands or anywhere else.
We've been keeping watch on those areas as the North has consistently augmented troops and equipment there over the past years, the spokesman added.
Since the shelling of Yeonpyeong Island in November 2010, the North has kept reinforcing troops and equipment along the west coast. Early this year, it deployed new 240 mm multiple rocket launchers with a range of 65-70 km and augmented 122 mm rocket launchers with a range of 20 km that fired shells at Yeonpyeong Island and moved them forward.
The South Korean military has also increased the number of K-9 self-propelled guns on those islands and deployed "Guryong" multiple launch rocket system and Spike missiles.

You know, no one wants bloodshed, but it’s hard not to desperately want to see the North Korean government get smacked down, hard, once and for all.
Don’t the Norks do this on a regular basis—I mean like every time they’re really short of cash?
They rattle the sabre and the West pays them off to keep the peace a little longer.
Where’s Pyongyang Patty? Is she screaming at the South Koreans more than usual lately?
Not this time I don't think.
The ROK marines are badass Hombres.
Only the Gurkhas are more Fierce fighters in my opionon.
Team Spirit war games are just around the corner.
I have heard the same thing from many who have fought or trained with them - that S. Korean soldiers are tough as nails.
Spent 13 months in Korea many years back; that place needs to be a single country once again.
Once in a while, they do more than saber-rattling. I think they could do the real thing on this island. It is a forward outpost closer to NK shore than SK mainland. A kind of real estate where NK likes to make a military spectacle out of.
Aren’t Russia and China meeting right now to discuss NK?
The South would win unless China stepped in, which is likely because they don’t want the US on their border.
A LOT of people would die whether or not China stepped in.
Translation: “We need more money”.
Possibly, John Kerry and $1.25 will get you some burnt black coffee.
I view NK as a thorny bush on the property edge of China. China stepped in the Korean war for the same reason that you mentioned.
In otherwords the NK military is hungry, cold, and has no fuel.
She was busy covering the anniversary of Chia Chub daddy Kim Jong 11 dying to today it been year already LOL!
Correcting the Great Leader on one of these “on the spot guidance” trips—even gently, would certainly earn that North Korean General a one-way trip to the mortar range—as target practice for KPA artillery soldiers.
CONFIRMATION: Mrs. Kim Jong Un (Ri) did emerge in Pyongyang TV video and still pictures in the mausoleum (naseum) which contains the body of deceased Chia Pet, going into the main entrance hall and bowing before statues of Kim il Sung and Kim Jong il, along with the fat, young one next to her. She was all decked out in mourning black. Actually, not bad looking, for a horrendous murderess, who probably has ordered some of these DPRK killings recently.
SOO she emerge it from whatever hole she hiding in LOL!
So she is Bride of Chia Chub the Kill Bill type would do anything
