North Korea is a toothless Tiger... Their tantrums and empty threats are pathetic.

you speak to lightly of a despotic regime bent on discipline and military might...

/sigh wouldn't it be nice if leaders of war were the only combatants in the war. Now that's a pay per view I would buy...

This could potentially be a situation that spirals out of control, but I doubt it.

The North/South Korean issue is a conflict for another day. It's deliberately being kept on simmer until all the death and profit possible has been wrought from the melting pot which is the Middle East. Only then will the 'handbags at dawn' become a real threat. In the mean time North Korea will get some more concessions from the West to placate the madman at the country's helm.

Now is the time for N Korea to strike Seoul will be buried within an hour with the 80,000 artillery pieces pointing at it.

sorry perhaps my bloodlust is high after playing Modern Warfare 2 all day

It was 1st attack in 7 years on each other and 1 N. Korean officer was killed and 3 wounded.

So this doesn't happen every year as members within this thread stated.

Also this time the North have pulled out of the treaty back in May, and are continuing to produce nukes and rockets despite a newer UN resolution that is supposed to prevent this and prevent distribution of weapons.

NK would never strike 1st otherwise.

you seem to give a lot of benefit to north korea...

I mean, i can see how, given all their empty, non provoked, threats in the past few years

One would think that with an awareness that MSM is 100% BS would have trickled into a few brains by now.

The western hate for NK is based purely on propaganda - and is directed by the NWO.

Normally intelligent people just swallowing the whole "crazy Kimmy, unstable and dangerous NK" rhetoric makes me wonder if there is any hope.

NK has not and does not 'sabre rattle'. They repeatedly and categorically stated "Do not come here, do not start anything - or we will reply with everything we have."

That is the only and plausible defense when faced with a superior opponent who wishes to encroach piece by piece rather than provoke a war.

It is like standing in a queue and someone is slowly trying to slide in front of you - if you don't pull them up immediately, then you may as well invite them to stand in front of you.

KJI does not want to provoke war - that is what the NWO want though, they want an excuse to destroy NK and they will make one if they have to.

I doubt any attempt to invade NK would ever be successful without using a genocidal approach. There are so many rifles and so many troops there - only complete destruction of the population would allow a take over.

ALso, looking at the sources it seems that SK opened fire first - of course the article states that the NK navy 'crossed the disputed border'. Well, anyone can see that is a nonsense way of putting it - if the border is disputed, then you can't cross it - in other words both navies were in disputed waters - seems the SK's are more trigger happy than the NK's.

A little balance and dispensing with these ridiculous preconceptions that originate from western propaganda would be a lot more profitable.

View it in other way. NK could be an biggest ally to US unintentionally.
What could US take part in far east these days except NK issue?
If it were not for NK, US presence in the far east would be very little. Who knows. Those NK military guys could have been paid for doing that by some party outside. In the late 90s ruling party of SK paid them to fire a gun which made a huge scandal resulting in election failure.
If it were not for NK, there maybe no job for US in the far east and countries in the region might dump all the US treasuries because they wouldn't feel they need any help from US.
In the 90s, US President Clinton wanted to bomb NK but it wasn't executed due to SK president's strong opposition. So these kind of potential conflict has always happened.

Its only a matter of time before war breaks out. I cant believe people think NK even stands a chance. They are in a bubble. Their technology has got to be garbage in comparison to SK.
