North Korea sent a fax to South Korea this week threatening to attack their neighbor “without notice.”
NBC News reported, via Free Republic:

A South Korean news agency reported Friday that the North has threatened to attack “without notice” in response to anti-North rallies this week — and that it sent the warning by fax.

It’s the latest provocation from North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, who, at roughly 30 years old, was born not long before the fax entered its golden age of curling paper, thermal printing and shrieking modems.

The threat was sent by the North Korean military, according to the Yonhap news agency. It arrived, apparently without a paper jam, at the South Korean National Security Council.

The youngest son of Kim Jong Il succeeded his late father in 2011, becoming the third member of his family to rule the unpredictable and reclusive communist state.
