Anybody paying attention to this? It doesn't sound good.

North Korea, accused of waging the deadliest attack on the South Korean military since the Korean War, flatly denied sinking a warship Thursday and warned that retaliation would mean "all-out war."

Evidence presented Thursday to prove North Korea fired a torpedo that sank a South Korean ship was fabricated by Seoul, North Korean naval spokesman Col. Pak In Ho told broadcaster APTN in an exclusive interview in Pyongyang.

He warned that any move to sanction or strike North Korea would be met with force.

"If (South Korea) tries to deal any retaliation or punishment, or if they try sanctions or a strike on us .... we will answer to this with all-out war," he told APTN.

An international team of civilian and military investigators declared earlier in Seoul that a North Korean submarine fired a homing torpedo at the Cheonan on March 26, ripping the 1,200-ton ship in two.

Fifty-eight sailors were rescued, but 46 died South Korea's worst military disaster since a truce ended the three-year Korean War in 1953.

Have been keeping an eye on it.

Hopefully just another one of those where they think they're getting close and things cool off.

What we don't need is a third war going on right now.

BBC.com this morning wrote:
China has held back from censuring North Korea at a summit in South Korea dominated by the issue of a sunken warship.

South Korea has accused North Korea of torpedoing the Cheonan, which sank on 26 March with the loss of 46 lives.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said the priority was to reduce tensions and avoid a clash over the incident.

But he did not mention North Korea by name or show support for possible UN sanctions against Pyongyang.

Mr Wen's remarks came at a summit in Jeju island with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama.

The three-nation summit was meant to focus on trade, but the sinking of the warship overshadowed other issues.

Seoul says it has overwhelming evidence to show that North Korea sank the Cheonan. It is seeking a unified international response to the communist state though the UN Security Council.

Japan and the US have offered South Korea their support - but it is veto-wielding China that is seen as key to what happens next.

Yeah, and I'm about to head to that part of the world. I have enough to worry about without having to add that nutjob North Korean leader threatening to nuke China in retaliation for not supporting their terrorist activity.
