North Korea warns diplomats to leave country

North Korea warned it can no longer guarantee the safety of foreign diplomats after April 10th, and told embassies to consider moving their staff out of the country.

The U.S. has no embassy there, but communicates with North Korea through Sweden’s embassy.

Many diplomats say they view the country’s latest warning with suspicion.

Sweden has so far not indicated it will move any of its embassy workers.

Thursday, North Korea moved missiles to its eastern coast and threatened a nuclear strike.

Most military analysts say those missiles could not reach the U.S., but may threaten South Korea, Japan and Guam.

As a precaution, the U.S. has bolstered its missile defense systems in Alaska.

    The world should leave North Korea alone – North Korea isn't the only one delivering threats. North Korea has been threatened by the world many times and whose to say that they're missiles aren't for defense as well? I honestly can't trust what the news report since they like to spin the truth. North Korea is backed by China and Russia so I think the United States and others need to back off and let North Korea be.

    I think that we americans need to take the gloves off with any country that treatens us. We need to use the same tactics they use because if we did we would not have any problems with anyone they kill one of us we kill ten of them they blow up a train station or anything we blow up a village. the only way to beat them is to stop being nice and get ruthless.
