If North Korea and South Korea wanna fight like kids and blow each other up, then let them.
But hey, they are the other side of the World and bugger all to do with the UK and USA!
So why are we all worried about "getting involved" in their silliness?
Get the few US troops outta South Korea and let them get on with it.
That way China can't get pi**ed at the US for helping out. There is also no reason for oil prices to climb either as it's not in the Middle East and we don't buy the stuff off them. In fact, what do we buy off South or North Korea? Maybe a few crappy plastic items for kids but that might be it?
Just leave em to get on with it whilst we sit and watch the fireworks! Oh, leave a few nukes behind in the South just in case the North get twitchy!
SEOUL: South Korea said Tuesday that an outbreak of foot-and-mouth had spread to its mainland from an island west of Seoul despite a mass cull aimed at containing the animal disease.
Cattle at a farm in Gimpo, 30 kilometres (19 miles) west of Seoul, have tested positive for the highly contagious disease in the first outbreak outside of the epicentre of Ganghwa Island, the agriculture ministry said.
Gimpo is a mainland region linked by a bridge to the island, where five infection cases have been reported since the deadly disease was first detected on April 9.
Authorities have culled some 30,000 animals at 227 farms on Ganghwa to limit the spread of foot-and-mouth, which affects animals such as cattle, pigs, deer, goats and sheep.
The virus can be spread between animals, through the air and on clothing. However, it is rarely transmitted to humans. South Korea ordered a halt to pork and beef exports in January when an outbreak of the disease was confirmed in Pocheon, northeast of Seoul.
Outbreaks in 2000 and 2002 cost South Korea an estimated 450 billion won (400 million dollars).
