So North Korea actually has nukes and today has threatened and VOWED to nuke the U.S. but we don't care about that...Iraq/Afghanistan have NOTHING but AK 47's and Iran has a NUCLEAR POWER PLANT yet we're destroying them?

What a joke. The U.S. has got to be the most cowardly nation in the history of the human race I kid you not.

Ahh the ye ole "it ws a flock of birds" cover-up. I think that was first coined by Teddy R. wasn't it? It was North Korea, plain and simple. The real question is whether N. Korea actually openly attacked the ship, or whether the ship hit an old N. Korean mine. My bet is that N. korea saw the ship, claimed it was in their waters (they, like China, have migrating borders that suit their positions when necessary) and opened fire. This is a very normal reacton for N. Korea, they ALWAYS fire first and ask questions later, if they feel like it. The ONLY reason S. Korea and the U.S have not invaded and taken over N. Korea is because of China and U.S relations, as this would greatly harm them. N. Korea is essentially a military Hell on earth, the people have been ground down to merely shells of themselves.

HEY JAPAN, TAKE THE BASTARDS OUT!!! You are the only ones who can.

The FOX News article I posted claims that ROK forces have rescued 24 live survivors from the sunken ROK Navy ship and are looking for more. Tis is incredibly tragic when you consider that the Pohang class corvette has a crew of about 100

Ha! And maybe it was a school of fish that caused the explosion in the ship. The whole thing seems suspect and smacks of NK involvement, but I'm sure SK media is trying to get their facts straight and ducks in a row before releasing what really happened. Even if they're 80% sure they were shooting at a NK vessel, it doesn't help the situation at all if they release a statement to that effect. It's better for them right now to stick with that 20% possibility that they were shooting at birds.

Come on, we all know this is a false flag by the corrupt Obama administration to distract us from his agenda. Today Obama has his new nuke treaty to replace the 'START' accord with the Russians. Let's not forget about Obama's upcoming battle over immigration and Cap & Trade. This is also a ploy to distract Americans from the ObamaCare mess.

This would only be true if the American media were reporting on this story. They are not reporting it.

Yes they are. Every major network has something about it going on. What makes you think otherwise?

Antonia, I responded earlier with an American media link and there were a few others that linked a CNN report. It is definitely being reported, just not front page everywhere.

Go turn on the TV. That is where most American's get their info from, not the internet. If it's not harped on the TV, no one cares.

Wow. Not what I expected to see on ATS. This is actual real news worthy of being seen by everyone, because of the potential magnitude it holds for all of us. Another war with NK will escalate beyond what it did in the "50's, I'm afraid.

We also have Iran to worry about, and any powerful terrorist links that Iran has. Everyone has allies...

ooo oo i know... its was a north korean ship manned by a flock of birds??
anyone ever seen alfred hitchcock's "The Birds"? i wouldnt mess with em


being serious now:
www.google.com...

Earlier Friday, North Korea's military threatened "unpredictable strikes," including a nuclear attack, in anger over a report that South Korea and the U.S. were preparing for possible instability in the totalitarian country


scary word "unpredictable"

Thats a simplistic view...the real situation is, if we were to go to war with N.K., they would launch everything they have...eliminating the south and perhaps also japan. If we continued to fight...we wouldn't have many places to send troops through. China would more than likely back up N.K in a proxy war to hammer down our economy and resolve...and voila...the end.

"winning" in N.K. would be exceptionally difficult considering the tyrants in charge really dont care about the people...hell, for them, losing 3/4ths of their population would be a good thing..less mouths to feed and more propaganda to slate.

As we fight all of that...no doubt that is when the big moves against Israel will be done, etc etc etc..suddenly you got world war 3.

Here is where it sort of gets interesting. America would become bankrupt and simply unable to continue war on likr 400 fronts, so we would pack up and go home, allowing for a mad rush to consolidate land. As much as france and such dislikes us, I think they prefer western lordship verses communist china lordship

Your TV must be broke because I see stories about it. Make sure you are not watching your local news.

They do believe it or not. However they have to do alot more checking on their end verifying information before they cause panic.

This could be a simple engine fire with explosion being exploited into an excuse to start attacking NK... Usual propaganda... Anyone remember Iraq?? Oh wait, it's still going on...

You "you know who you are" should have in mind this is NOT a confirmed attack before you all beg for war!
Also "you" should consider this is NOT an attack on america, yes it is an ally but hey do live far away from the US and they do have controversial relationship with the NK.

These days i question ANY attack on ANY soil until i get a LOT of information, even then i would never ask for war. I would ask for diplomacy to work! YOU GET THIS? People die for real!
Ignorant pornowarriors!

You have evidence of all kinds that it is time to reflect and question any international insident. "You" have been sent to war for the wrong reasons too many times, start thinking!!!
Worrie about the "BILL" and the Israel situation instead.
