"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Nort Korea again threatens DOOM AND ANNIHILATION. But it was in response to some pretty idiotic statements.

North Korea has warned Japan that it is headed for "final ruin" while criticising a senior Japanese politician's comments that downplayed Japan's war history and insulted other Asian nations.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency was sharply critical of the comments of senior ruling Liberal Democratic Party member Takami Eto, who called most illegal immigrants "thieves and murderers".

Mr Eto also insisted that Japan's annexation of Korea in 1910 was "unconditionally approved by the United Nations".

North Korea says the "provocative" remarks were part of a bid to turn Japanese society to the right and push forward moves for militarisation and fascism, to launch a reinvasion of Asia.

Pyongyang's criticism followed a small protest in Hong Kong over Eto's comments on the Nanjing massacre, which he denounced as a "lie".

The veteran politician says claims that 300-thousand civilians were butchered in the 1937 Rape of Nanjing, were baseless.

That's right, absolutely baseless, never happened.
