North Korea warns of military strike against South Korea


www.theaustralian.news.com.au

NORTH Korea warned of a possible military response after South Korea joined an anti-proliferation exercise, and said it is no longer bound by the 1953 armistice which ended their war.

A military statement quoted by official media also said the North could no longer guarantee the safety of shipping off its west coast.

More North Korean chest thumping. Theoretically the North South war has never ended so I'm not sure what declaring war on South Korea actually means.

If they choose to actually militarily respond to naval searches or sanctions enforcement, will it escalate?

I'm hoping not.


"Any tiny hostile acts against our republic, including the stopping and searching of our peaceful vessels... will face an immediate and strong military strike in response," the statement said.

You posted it first, ergo I will only respond to yours.


N. Korea I know they talk alot, and alot, almost like giddy school girls.

Eventually though the talking will stop and they will continue to speak in actions, sooner or later. Why not sooner, Kim Jong Ill isn't getting any younger now!

If they do, the question is, will the USA defend S. Korea, we can't honestly afford to be in another war, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan. We do already have 25,000 troops stationed in S. Korea and that may help but, the cost would be a big blow to the economy, although i'm sure the Dow Jones would be up anyways.

Good... Now let's call their bluff.

I have had enough of NK and Iran manipulating our reactions. They play the West like a fiddle. Now let's disrupt their equations.

You know Hitler calculated that once he had conquered France Britain would just accept it.

Kim Il Jong no doubt is making similar calculations right now.

The US would be powerless to stop them, your military doesn't even posses the genius to defeat a bunch of cave dwelling muslims. You gave into politics and now your military is pathetically stupid, any intelligent person would have no hope of getting into a position of power. China is licking their chops, they have you exactly where they want you. Your only option would be to get into another endless war or start dropping nukes and call life quits. I'll start writing my bucket list now, better keep it short.

I think NK will be the real problem next.

I believe thats where the first nuke will be launched from, never mind Iran or the Middle East.

The US has been fighting wars with it's hands tied behind it's back. The only reason the US is struggling is because the conventional army's it's used to fighting were destroyed within a week. I think an acceptable way to re-word your statement would be that they US military is so effective that it has people hiding in caves. The US wouldn't even need to nuke North Korea, I don't even think they would want to because it would be part of just Korea afterward.

I will say that they US does not need another war right now. Also, I have been to Korea and fighting a war there sounds like the worst idea, ever. Cold winters and humid summers.

Deja Vu, All Over Again



Take a look at the Google map.

Zoom it out a little then drag it down til you can see the neighborhood.

There are three superpowers playing here. The US, China, and Russia.

One thing is clear. Korean should not kill Korean. Kim is stupid.

It is time for all men to recognize each other as brothers, and stop making aggressive war on others.

Having said that, if Kim makes an aggressive move, history shows what the South and the UN will do in defense.

He must want to die, like Saddam.

Wow, he's really lost it hasn't he?

If he thinks anybody is gonna take this laying down he's wrong. He's basically said that if you do anything, at all, I will declare war and something bad is gonna happen.

To tell you the truth, I kinda believe him. The old man wants to go out with a bang I guess.

What a psycho.

Poor Lil Kim...

Just who is behind these new cases of aggression? Lil Kim may be the leader right now, but there's 3 or 4 people just itching to be next in line. And they're willing to do anything to cement their claim.

The slug fest between the main contenders wasn't reported much in the western media. Kimmy only has so long left, and the military want's a piece of the new leadership.

Just have a read of some pro-North Korean websites to see just how far gone Nth Korea has become.

Korea News

Gotta go to work now, but will be posting new thread tonight when I get home based around the North Korean power struggle with details on the main players, etc.

As I said in the other thread, most people seem to forget the fact that he a huge ace up his sleeve.

The quick and complete destruction of Seoul would kill anywhere between 1 million and 10 million people, and it is quite easily within NKs capability to do so.

I'm going to quote myself here from the other thread to save time:




I haven't got a source I can link, but in other NK-related threads, the figure of 10,000 artillery pieces comes up regularly.

EDIT: Ok, I've found figures. Global Security

In total, NK has over 10,400 pieces of artillery. (Self-propelled, towed and rocket).

According to the wikipedia page, the exact number of in service artillery pieces is unknown.

Every piece would be camouflaged and probably moved regularly enough to keep satellites guessing.

I don't think, without simply destroying the entire strip of land on their side of the DMZ for many kilometers, that even half of the guns could be taken out easily.

So, the threat to Seoul is real and not easily solved. 10 million people in the firing line is nothing to be sneezed at.

So, under an extremely conservative estimate of each piece firing 1 shell a minute, that means that after one hour over 600,000 shells could hit Seoul. That would kill probably half the population.


So all those willing to risk war with North Korea that are morally OK with sacrificing millions of civilians to do so, then by my guest.

That is the choice the world is faced with.

Either somehow find a way to locate and destroy those artillery in an impossibly short period of time (once conflict begins), or allow NK a little victory this time and back off for a period and let things cool down.

As I stated in the other post.

Washington, Beijing and maybe even Moscow are on a 3way hot line right this very moment. It's time. China wont allow the region to go under they need the economic boost and this would derail their economy faster than greased lightning.

LIL Kimmy's days might be numbered.

The Us has been hamstrung in dealing with NK before because of China refusing to stand against them effectively giving tacit support. I think even they realise now he has gone to far and is dangerous, and while before KJI was distractting the US, NK is now a liability to them too.

I'm sorry I posted a link this morning in a related thread now I forget which anyway it was basically describing how Beijing was pretty much fed up with little Kimmy at that although they were allies he was "Unstable" and he was threatening all of the hard work China has accomplished. Sorry cant find the link my bad.


Little Kimmys temper tantrums are a direct threat to the global financial recovery!

i was kind of thinking


kim dong shill is supposedly in bad health,,, going down hill,,,,,and somewhat of an ego maniac,,,,, so will he bow out quietly and die????

will his current legacy satisify his need,,,,, or where he wants to be in history or in the minds of his people


i figure,,,, he's gonna go out in a bang,,, not just die and fade away

there's some fireworks coming and at least one last shot at becoming famous,,, or as a martyr for his homeland


he needs to add another piece to his history bio,,,,, just a matter of when, with who,,, and with what weapons


anyone with me on this line of thought????

I can do without being irradiated and glowing. Less nuclear war is always better.

Anyhow from what I read in another thread somewhere, being able to set off a nuclear device and actually ruggardise it for missile deployment are two very different things.

The thing I fear is that if it's start shooting like in 2002... will Obama go full ahead because he's affraid to appear weak?

Hopefully, it's just rhetoric, but IMO this is the closer to war we've been in years. Especially with that nutjob that's about to die.

Hopefully again... the North Koreans generals will do a coup before their leader goes crazy.

Makes Powell and Biden look like modern day prophets. Obama will have to make a hard choice if the North Koreans storm over that line.
