North Korea threatens military action over Christmas lights
December 13, 2011
North Korea has threatened South Korea with a “sea of fire” because the Communist state views large tree-shaped Christmas lights placed on the border as “psychological warfare” and a “provocation.”
“If the move leads to unpredictable results, all responsibilities will be determined on the warmongers of the South,” stated a website run by North Korea’s government.
