Here we go again North Korea started saber-rattling and promising a retaliatory response this week over joint military exercises by South Korea-US Military forces. The military exercises spurred on from the sinking of a South Korean naval vessel the Cheonan by a North Korean torpedo earlier this year. Threats from North Korea over previous military exercises have been declared before but North Korea is such a rogue nation that it is prudent to take notice.
