'Suspicious powder,' threatening letter sent to S. Korean defense minister


The South Korean defense minister has received a threatening letter that also contained an unidentified white powder, Yonhap News reported.

It was not immediately clear where the letter originated from, or what its exact contents were.

"In the parcel addressed to the defense minister with no sender name, the ministry found a threatening letter and unidentified powder,” the ministry said in a release, according to Korea's Yonhap news agency.

The warning comes only days after hundreds of papers threatening Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin, who formed an emergency response team to determine who had sent the package. The South Korean government has defined the attack as “an attempted terror.”


The ominous message follows weeks of posturing from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who has repeatedly threatened to use nuclear missiles on the South. Earlier this month, after South Korea’s Unification Minister seemed to warn that North Korea was preparing to launch a missile, the Defense Minister eased international tensions by clarifying that there had not actually been any “indication of a nuclear test” in the North.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
