NKorea says it cannot assure safety of SKorea flights in it's airspace


rawstory.com

The North said it therefore could not guarantee security for South Korean civil aircraft using its airspace "and its vicinity" above the Sea of Japan (East Sea), "in particular, while the military exercises are under way."

The annual Key Resolve/Foal Eagle exercise starts next Monday and lasts for 12 days. The North has denounced it as a prelude to war, while the US-led United Nations Command (UNC) says it is purely defensive.

The North's government newspaper, Minju Joson, said earlier Thursday that the "slightest" military conflict which may break out during the exercise can rapidly develop into "a thermonuclear war."

North Korea is ready for "merciless and powerful retaliatory actions," it said.

This is just another spark trying to ignite a fire in my opinion ... north korea just seems like it's trying to put the u.s. government in a horrible position ... this isn't good news for south korea at all though ... if there is a 'terrorist attack' on one of their flights over North Korea during these exercies who knows what the response will be ...

Then we cannot assure the safety of N.Korea from retaliation for downing a S.Korean aircraft.

I suspect that North Korea cannot assure safety of their own flights in their airspace, either.

This rhetoric from NKorea is becoming tiresome. If they want their own little communist haven there then let it be. By engaging the U.S. and others they are asking for trouble. They claim they want to be left alone to decide thier own fate, (the gov't of NKorea not the people)but they continually poke bigger and badder dogs with sticks. We all know what happens then...

I think that NK cant assure anyone of anything ever.
Because it is run by an evil psychopathic liar.

I do. It will be what they have said it will be. They will bomb the south.

And yeah, that would be very bad. We still have thousands of troops stationed in south korea.
It would be all-out warfare. No wonder all the navies are already in that area.

They have no money... I was alluding to my thought that their aircraft are not well maintained. Maybe I should have been more specific.

When I was in the military, I repaired aircraft. I know how important maintenance is to something like that.

Not a good joke, I know...

Just more propaganda and fear mongering from the N.Korean Generals...I just wish countries in the UN put more pressure on China concerning North Korea.Anyone actually seen Kim Jong Il yet since his stroke?

I wish someone would backhand their Generals.

F-in idiots are going to get a lot of people killed.

Theres US forces in Japan , well within range of korean nukes, let alone the US forces in south korea.


NK also has something like 3000 artillery tubes + unguided rockets pointed at seoul - you wouldn`t need a nuke with that many shells coming down.

IMO,

I think that N.K is acting a lot like Iran.

They are now constantly making veiled and not so veiled threats almost weekly now.

Like Iran, one of these days I think someone(s) might just take them up on it.

I noticed that N.K. used the term" thermonuclear war" which implies Hydrogen bombs as opposed to less A bombs.

thermonuclear bombs:
Infoplease

Nuclear bombs:
Wikipedia

My point is thermonuclear weapons are "MUCH" more powerful as well as much more difficult to make.

Personally, I did not think N.K. had thermonuclear weapons.

That's some interesting points you bring up ... i picked this statement out particularly because i agree with you i had no idea that they were capable of thermonuclear war ... just nuclear.

If they do have thermonuclear capabilty, that does up the ante. If this is true, I wonder where they grabbed the tech from. Nothing I know about NK suggests they could do this on their own.

yeah but if a canadian plane went down over the u.s. there would be serious repercussions and they would hold the u.s. accountable due to the fact they are basically guaranteed safe passage because they are allies ... this is different ...
