Yep, you read that headline right. North Korea returned to the days of yore this week when it decided to conduct its warmongering via fax. Quaint.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who is playing host to that other 1990s relic Dennis Rodman, sent a fax to South Korea this week threatening a “merciless” strike on the south “without notice” in response to anti-North Korea rallies in Seoul. Protesters had burned Kim’s photo and accused him of human rights abuses. North Korea’s National Defense Commission sent the fax through the military “hotline” between North Korea and South Korea, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News.
