Crazy is at it again.  Could this get any worse for the inexperienced Won?

(Reuters) – A North Korean envoy said on Thursday that war could erupt at any time on the divided Korean peninsula because of tension with Seoul over the sinking of a South Korean warship in March.

“The present situation of the Korean peninsula is so grave that a war may break out any moment,” Ri Jang Gon, North Korea’s deputy ambassador in Geneva, told the United Nations-sponsored Conference on Disarmament.

North Korea’s troops were on “full alert and readiness to promptly react to any retaliation,” including the scenario of all-out war, he told the forum.

Washington (CNN) – The Pentagon denied Thursday it has approved sending the aircraft carrier USS George Washington to the Yellow Sea off the Korean Peninsula, where North Korea allegedly sank a South Korean warship in March.

Two U.S. military officials said U.S. Forces Korea was expected to make the announcement Thursday. The officials declined to speak on the record because the announcement had not been made.

But Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell told CNN, “No carriers are going anywhere near there anytime soon.” However, the military officials are planning for the deployment and said they expect it to be announced.
