article imageNorth Korea declares martial law

By Christopher Ramos     Jan 31, 2013 in World
North Korea has declared a state of martial law; North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, has told the North Korean army to prepare for war.
Some speculate that this is simply preparations to test the country's nuclear capabilities. This announcement came shortly after Kim had a emergency conference with his top defense and security officials. The country has been officially under a state of martial law since mid-night January 29th. The last time North Korea was under martial law was in 1993, just before the country withdrew from the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons treaty.
Analysts aren't surprise at the actions taken by the North Korean government. The birthday celebration of the late Kim Jong-il takes place on Feb 16; which leads analysts to think this might be the reason why the country is moving forward with the nuclear tests.
South Korean president, Lee Myung-bak, has already begun making preparations, ordering the military to be prepared for the worst; just in case that North Korea provokes an action against South Korea.
