NK very well understands this is just them "yapping" with no intention of doing anything. Even NK knows that if they engaged against the South, the US would come in and b*tch slap them down... It would be NK's end if they ever moved on the South with a full on attack, and NK knows this.

This is basically just over propaganda broadcasting. Those are definitely a lot of loudspeakers, but how far into North Korea could the sound get?
Far enough to piss of little Kim I'm guessing.

I'm quite sick of the attitude displayed by many ATS members towards the Korean situation.
Clearly, this situation is a tense one, and i, unlike many others here, prefer not to underestimate North Korea and its threats. North Korea has followed through on its recent threats, and they continue to threaten more strikes. The US has suspended its military operations with South Korea and mobilised troops on the border. South Korea threatens brutal retaliation in any further attacks.
This is not a joking matter, and i am quite tired of reading the same bull# posts mocking a head-of-state who is believed to be well-versed in military strategies. Research helps educate people, and i feel that the people who would prefer to joke about North Korea and Kim Jong-un do not have an adequate grasp as to what exactly is going on and the implications it could very well pose to the region. Read more and #post less.
WASHINGTON — U.S. defense officials say America's annual military exercise with South Korea has been halted as tensions with North Korea spike and Pyongyang issues threats of war.
The officials say the U.S. is monitoring the situation, but hasn't taken any other military steps. It was unclear if the exercise would resume.

Sheer numbers beats technology in most cases.
As no matter how great the technology it can only shoot some much or drop some many bombs before it has to stop and reload.
Paju, South Korea (CNN)
The United States suspended, then resumed joint military exercises with South Korea this week after North Korea fired artillery shells across the Demilitarized Zone, Assistant Secretary of Defense David Shear told reporters Friday.
The news of the pause, which happened Thursday, according to Shear, came as stern warnings flew back and forth across the border on the day before a North-imposed deadline for the South to shut off propaganda broadcasts or face war.
"We suspended part of the exercise temporarily in order to allow our side to coordinate with the ROK (Republic of Korea) side on the subject of the exchange fire across the DMZ," Shear said "And the exercise is being conducted now according to plan."
