If this goes anywhere, i'm pretty sure the US and SK have several detailed plans, to take down NK in a matter of hours...

Might be right dude.

This just in:

NK orders troops to be on war footing

during an emergency meeting of NK's Central Military Commission...


The troops should be "fully battle ready to launch surprise operations" while the entire frontline should be placed in a "semi-war state," KCNA quoted him as saying.

The CMC meeting came hours after the two Koreas traded artillery fire on Thursday, leaving no apparent casualties but pushing already elevated cross-border tensions to dangerously high levels.

The KPA followed up with an ultimatum sent via military hotline that gave the South 48 hours to dismantle loudspeakers blasting propaganda messages across the border or face further military action.

The ultimatum expires at 5:00pm local time (6:30pm AEST) on Saturday.


Be interesting to see where this goes eh.

I wish I could go over there, in my hair rollers and brandish a rolling pin at both leaders. Over 60 years of craziness. Just needs to stop.

They already executed "drills" together to show their force. They are more than ready.

North Korea has told S. Korea they have 48 hours to stop their broadcasts. They also have placed North Korea military forces on a war footing.


North Korea's Kim puts troops on war footing with South

One thing to consider: Even though on the surface China is not the super buddy they once were with N.K. I would assume if things got serious China would step in just like they did during the Korean war.

China is already sensitive about expanding it's claimed land and sea lanes, so I doubt they would want to lose their stinky neighbor to any perceived western interest..

Some people say the way to get out of financial troubles is to go to war.. Let us hope for all the lives not yet lost that this is not the trigger something getting out of hand.


Want to bet on that?

China would in no way, shape or form attack the US.....They could take out Lil Kimmy and place a new dictator there but they would NEVER attack the US.....They are not stupid! Over North Korea.....Allies or not that just simply would not happen!


During the Korean war we had Chinese and Russian pilots flying Mig 15s and on the ground Chinese foot soldiers and advisers. I suppose I did not make my statement clear on the stepping in part. I personally doubt it would be much different this time around except we do not have a Douglas MacArthur.

I feel so sorry for the North Koreans.


The world feels sorry for the North Koreans , well Isis aside . The only one not feeling sorry is lil Kym . I would suggest the majority of his advisor's and generals feel for their people but oddly no one has put an end to their countries plight as yet .

Both countries will establish a diplomacy status, no war.

There are different opinions on this .

Below is for the no crowd .



Jamie Metzl, an Asia expert for the Atlantic Council in New York, said he thought it was unlikely that the current crisis would escalate further.
"North Korea has more to gain from conflict theater than from a conflict that would quickly expose its fundamental weakness,"


Then you have this .



The shelling Thursday "raises questions frankly about Kim Jong Un's style of making tension, provocations, escalation -- and whether he knows how to control escalation," said Michael Green, an Asia specialist at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.


The second made me shudder a little . Is he actually not able to grasp where this could go or is he a very smart man using the bat crap crazy thing to his advantage . Can anyone tell for sure . Sadly history may give us those answers .

Interesting article in the link .

Aye, that quote from Mr Green is quite alarming indeed.

Straw poll: Is Kim Jong-Un and his cronies more loony than Kim Jong-Il and his cronies? And I am not referring to the resemblance of a certain Canadian coin!

Although i am no expert in crazy though some might argue otherwise , it seems to me that crazy always has being out of touch with reality as one of its main ingredients . Both qualify equally in that department . However that being said , what qualifies as crazy to most or even reality for that matter must be or was , the norm for them .

Things over here are ok for the time being. Expecting at least a week of higher than normal tensions, still an ongoing situation. Can't get into specifics on readiness levels and what exactly we did, I'm close to the DMZ, and we were ready.

For the people claiming this is normal stuff and not a big deal, consider this. North Korea has done some crazy stuff, I was also here for the shelling of the island a while back. The difference here is the reaction from the South. Usually there are strong words and threats, this time North Korea was met a considerable amount of counter fire.

Not at all.. I just replied to the thread without reading the current discussion.

So my bad...


Apparently the North is now stating they did not fire anything at S. Korea... Sounds like an attempt to make the South out to be the aggressors..

Are you near the loud speakers , if so keep safe as this appears to be the sticking point to both sides backing down . The link below claims that NK is preparing scuds and aiming them at those sites .

I agree with you, this is different.
Little Kimmy has been an unpredictable pest and regardless of how unstable his father was he is far younger and seemingly more irrational if reports are to be believed.

Usually I'm one of the first to state that it's nothing more than attention seeking from the North, a way to get their luxury goods after being brought back to the diplomatic table, but I don't believe it's gone this far for a while.

Before it's been very one-sided, but it seems as though the South has finally lost patience and isn't prepared to play games any more. As you say, normally the South would chalk this up to the North being their usual nutty selves, but for them to respond in a matter of minutes shows a new level of resolve which could escalate things pretty quickly.

It's a shame there isn't a movement within NK to change things, but I feel Kimmy has so much control over his people no one would dare to even criticize his decisions lest they end up in front of a wall with anti-aircraft guns aimed at them.

When someone like that little fat man has so much power it's a recipe for disaster. He has no balance of opinion, no counsel, no one to tell him when to stop or what the consequences might be.

I would normally say that I hope this clams down, but to be honest I now think we need to take him out and start the reunification process. This has gone on for far too long and while the rest of the world is calling other things considerable threats we're entirely ignoring the bat-sh*t crazy elephant in the room with a Nuke trigger under its foot.

I actually think we might see something happen with this soon. I believe that if NK does anything else in the next few days there will be an onslaught from the South, which is something we will inevitably be caught up in as allies.

I believe that if the North fires anything else in the coming days they will see an even harsher response from the South, likely targeting all their positions on the other side of the border.

It looks as though the South is no longer willing to play the polite and placating victim here, the government seems entirely prepared to retaliate if it needs to, and it's going to do so properly. If the North fires again, the South (with US allies) will pound every NK position along that border and Kimmy will then likely escalate things even more - because he's clearly crazy.

Cheers for the boots on the ground report! I had read that the US were conducting operations/training in the vicinity but obviously specifics and locales could not be given.

Are the loudspeakers pretty annoying?

Also confused now. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) said there was a 48hour deadline to stop the loudspeakers (ending at 5pm local time on sat), but then British media were reporting that the deadline was today at 5pm local time. Can you tell us what was what?

Cheers again!
