Pro-DPRK outlet warns Washington against "dangerous game"

The article, carried by the Choson Sinbo -- the chief organ of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) -- comes as North Korea has stepped up demands for the U.S. to return the Wise Honest ship, seized earlier in the month.
