As proof officials in Pyongyang held up a future copy of the South's Hankyoreh newspaper which bore the headline "US 7th Fleet Lost in West Sea Mystery".
This isn't the first time North Korea has claimed significant scientific advances. Two years ago North Korean soccer manager Kim reportedly received coaching advice directly from King Jong-il during the World Cup "using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye." The former leader, who died in December, is said to have developed the technology himself, but it is not known if he developed the time-travel device that allows attacks to be directed into the future before his death, or whether he accidentally fell victim to it.
According to South Korea's National Intelligence Service, the invisible cell phones were possibly covered with stealth paint. Fears that stealth paint had been used by North Korea led the government to remove several artworks suspected of pro-North sympathies from the Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Art last year.
Some South Korean scientists have been skeptical of the North's claims, but many others have pointed to the way conditions in North Korea have apparently gone back in time in recent years as proof that the technology exists and is actively being used by the North Korean leadership.
The revelation that North Korea can now attack future targets may not all be bad news however. In revealing its time traveling technology, government officials in Pyongyang claimed that they had also used it to prevent Sarah Palin from running for President in 2012. In November 2010 after the North Korean attack on Yeonpyeong Island, Pain shocked South Koreans by promising to stand with her North Korean allies, raising fears that she would adopt an esoteric foreign policy aimed at hastening the arrival of what her campaign mysteriously called "the end times".
While an alliance with North Korea might have greatly helped the impoverished nation, it is believed that Pyongyang ultimately sought to prevent her rise to the presidency based on a potential threat to their ideology that was judged even more important than potential support for North's brand of communism – her gender.
