North Korea faxes South Korea threat of attack

North Korea has sent South Korea a notice that they might strike without notice (?), and they did it by fax — an intimidation tactic possibly designed as a show of superior NK technology:

Tensions between North and South Korea kicked up a notch after a threatening fax was sent from Pyongyang to Seoul on a special communications line between the two rival capitals.

In it, the North’s National Defense Commission warned it could strike “without notice,” reports South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Kim Jong-Un was going to send the threat by telegram but Pyongyang’s Western Union guy died in 1975.
