North Korea has threatened to scrap the armistice which ended the Korean War in 1953, citing US moves to impose sanctions for its nuclear test and tensions over South Korean-US exercises.
The threat comes amid reports from the United Nations that China and the United States have reached agreement on new measures to punish the North for last month’s nuclear weapons test.
The North’s military said it could launch a “precise” strike anytime, unrestrained by the armistice. It also warned it could mount a strike with atomic weapons to counter any US nuclear threat.
In a statement on official media yesterday, the military called the joint exercise a “most blatant” provocation and slammed a “vicious” scheme by the US and its allies to push for tougher United Nations sanctions
UPDATE! March 18 2013: The North’s foreign ministry, in a statement carried by state TV on Sunday, rejected suggestions that the impoverished state was using its weapons program as a way of bullying neighbours into offering much-needed aid.
“The US is seriously mistaken if it thinks that [North Korea] had access to nukes as a bargaining chip to barter them for what it called economic reward,” the statement said :: Read the full article »»»»

Large-scale violent anti-government protests unfolded across Syria as tens of thousands of demonstrators converged on public squares to protest the al-Assad regime – nationwide rallies dubbed “The Crawl to Freedom Square.”
Once again Syria has seen deadly clashes as tens of thousands filled the streets to demonstrate against the government of president Bashar al-Assad and make their voices heard to Arab League monitors.
The protests coincide with reports of increased violence against demonstrators by President Bashar al-Assad’s security forces, even as an Arab League fact-finding mission works to determine whether the Syrian government is abiding by a peace agreement to end a brutal crackdown on protesters.

Tesla has announced the final pricing and options for its übercool – Whitestar – Model S sedan, which will hit the US market Mid-2012. Unlike Tesla’s first vehicle – Roadster – the Model S is a practical, yet supremely smooth looking family car, seating five or seven in Jaguar XF style luxury. Model S starts at around half the price of the $110k sporty Roadster. Tesla has reported that more than 6,500 reservations – with a minimum deposit of $US5,000, a total $US11 million in commitment from buyers has been raised – have been taken, and expect that number to sky-rocket. Amusingly, nearly 1000 punters had placed a deposit before the artists ink had dried on the concept renderings back in May 2009, this is clearly a much anticipated auto.

OWS Citibank Protesters Arrested
Police arrested 24 protesters for trespassing at a Citibank branch, a New York Police Department spokesman said.
Citibank has always been a bit of a fumbling behemoth, barely – with bailout assistance from U.S. tax payers – scraping through the global financial crisis in tact, it now face an entirely new wave of trouble. Days after Citibank CEO Vikram Pandit talked about his sympathies with Occupy Wall Street and his willingness to engage with protesters. A Citibank branch in New York has locked the doors of their branch and arrested a group of Citibank account holders who wished to to close their accounts. It’s clear that Citibank are terrified that a few accounts closing will escalate to a run on the bank. “It would only take a small percentage of account holders to prove that Citibank is an economic hologram and like much of the financial sector, is desperately hiding how weak it is. The 99% are waking up and realise they’ve been duped, fleeced,conned and bullied for far too long” said Jeremy Bloom. “NOT even in the dark dark days of the 1930s great depression – when there was actual panic – did we see anything this stupid” Here’s how it went down at the Citibank branch at 555 La Guardia Place in New York. The demonstrators – all Citibank customers – were asked to leave, and when they tried to comply Citibank’s security locked them in and wouldn’t let them leave! 24 were arrested.
