Wow, i just turned on the news (Sky News) and they are saying that many are feared dead after the strike from North Korea.

Guess Kim isn't just all talk after all then it seems.

If it was him. There are certain people that could use the sinking of a ship as a justification for war. And they've done it a few times before as I recall.

This is certainly a distressing story. I think there have been conflicts between NK and SK ships in the past but I don't know if any have been sunk before.

This is a very provocative act and if South Korea has returned fire this could start to get ugly fast.

I hope the sailors get rescued quickly there should be plenty of friendly ships around.

We can just hope the South will remain as level-headed as they have been in the past.

These kind of "fire exchange" has happened before, but not at this magnitude....as far as I know...

No war please.

Eish! Watching this one for sure, This could get very ugly pretty quick,

According to BBC reporters The South Korea president has called an urgent cabinet meeting..

China could be wanting a proxy war to keep US busy as they fight with India over water rights at the Chinese/Indian border.

Just a guess but I do not see NK doing anything without Chinese knowledge as this seems to be one of few NK "friends".

my 2 cents

Uh OH, cabinet meeting are not good at this point. May level heads prevail. Retaliation would surely mean full out war as NK already thinks the South and US are out to get them.

This is an act of war, South Korea has the right to retaliate. No sane person wants to war to break out but this act calls for swift action. Time for a regime change for North Korea!

Damn,I hope this does not escalate,but if there are many dead,will the south remain calm?
Will the US?

The thing that worries me is lil bastard kim just threatened(again)to fire nukes at the south.
He is also rumoured to be suffering from kidney failure:

www.dailymail.co.uk...

Question is,is he on deaths door,and wishing to go out in a nuclear blaze of "glory"...He certainly wouldn't be forgotten about for a long time if it was indeed him who set the world on fire.

I think he wants to be remembered for all time,by all the world.
And in his twisted mind,this could be the way to do just that.
