Just 24 hours after North Korea shelled areas of South Korea and promises of swift retaliation were issued in the event of another attack, Kim Jong Il's regime did just that.
At 11 minutes past midnight, Korean time, communist sappers emerged from hidden tunnels and tossed grenades into the drive-thru of a downtown Seoul McDonald's restaurant, leaving Big Mac buns burning in every direction.
A few blocks away, North Korean rockets impacted destroying a Hyundai dealership and seriously damaging a Coca Cola bottling plant. Along South Korea's western coastline, North Korean marines kidnapped 106 women after setting fire to wig shop and nail boutique.
However, US assistant deputy secretary to the acting ambassador's protégé' John Gumption, told representatives of the press that "This is not a crisis. We have no intention of making things worse by responding to this kind of behavior from the North. None of today's actions were unexpected and no one is worried. I believe that there will be peace in our time."
China officially commented that as far as they were concerned, it has all been a non-event and the world should move along because nothing was happening.
Meanwhile in Pyongyang, young tyrant-intern, Kim Jong Un was seen firing his AK-47 at his personal body guards while father Kim looked on approvingly.
The North Korean capitol had a series of military parades and missile launchings celebrating what was being referred to as 'Happy Our Beloved Youthful and Vibrant Lunatic Leader Is Killing His Body Guards So There Will Be More Food for the Rest of Us!' day.
