They might be able to kill a lot of people in Seoul, but it doesnt mean that South Korean and/or they USA couldnt kick the living hell out of them in the end.

It seems to me that this shipment by North Korea is a very carefully planned challenge to the US and President Obama. We said, "Don't do this or face the consequences." They are simply stepping across the line with impunity and saying, "Na Na Now what are you going to do!"
I think it is really simple. They think Obama is weak and will back down. It looks like they are going to be proven right.
believed to be heading toward Myanmar carrying small arms cargo

Yes, it really feels like North Korea is pushing the envelope. I really wish the EU, or any other nation would step up and put an end to this lunacy. Why must the US be forced into the police of the world?

Bottom line here, is will anybody step up and inspect this ship's cargo? If so then we can expect combat with North Korea. The 27k U.S troops over there, just a speedbump if the DPRK military comes south in a hurry obviously preceded by their artillery, I was at Camp Hovey and we were always told that our entire post including Camp Casey and all others had a devastating amount of artie pointed right at us ready to rain it down on a moments notice. Short of the long if the ship is inspected, this will be ugly and I don't rule out Kim's use of nuclear weapons as well.
