If i was N Korea..i'd take out the building the generals are meeting in.. take out the head whilst they can.

Sky news asian correspondent was speaking about how this wouldnt be like Iraq or Afghanistan with just insurgents to deal with it is a full scale sovereign war with tanks,jets,hundreds of thousands of troops as well as ships. then whoever is the victor has to deal with the political and economic fallout as well as the inevitable resistance fighters.

He also went on to say who will defend who? America and S Korea vs the North? will China back N Korea albeit in the shadows not to mention would the south korea risk it even though it is an act of war..46 lives would cost hundreds of thousands their own. Seoul would be flattened within 3 days not to mention the striking range of the rest of the artillery hitting Inchon and further south...all at the same time.

North korea would be hard to take down as they have tunnels beneath the country which go for miles full of supplies and armored vehicles. A resistance by them would be like the Japanese of WW2 making sure more of the enemy die..then when it is their turn sacrifice themselves by taking downa platoon of soldiers.

I said before on other threads form earlier this month if the Korean peninsula hits the fan keep an eye on Iran and Israel as that is the best opportunity for a strike on nuclear facilities as the two super powers of China and the USA will be to busy with their proxy war. I wouldn't be surprised if towards the end Bluebeam is activated to fool everyone into thinking either their religious gods have returned or aliens are invading to unite the world against the invisible foe.

Although to me bluebeam wouldnt work..holograms would be to obvious as they aren't solid...unless they use planes as a foundation for building the hologram into a solid hologram.

I sense that the SHTF by the end of summer.

my 2 pennies.

Given that the UK sent specialists (along with US, Australia and Sweden) to investigate, we seem to be getting ourselves equalling embroiled in the mess. (We = UK)

British Foreign Secretary William Hague stressed Thursday an international probe into the March sinking of a South Korean naval vessel, which found North Korea responsible, was conducted accurately and objectively.

Hague said North Korea's provocation will deepen the international community's mistrust of the communist regime. "The attack demonstrates a total indifference to human life and a blatant disregard of international obligations," he said, adding Britain and international partners are "committed to working closely with the Republic of Korea (South Korea) as they consider an appropriate multilateral response to this callous act."

the words multilateral response is quite telling is it not...

It's time to put Kim Jong-il out of his misery. Too bad he'll be taking his country with him.

Smells like a set up, by the anglo american empire, and do not tell me those people did not prejudge the evidence.

The history of british intelligence and saying they have real evidence on things is very cagey to say the least isn't it. Blair cough cough, stood in the commons and said the same about iraq wmds knowing he was lying.

The average NK family living below the poverty line, having done so for decades, would not even be aware of the reasons why they are living in the # they are, mouth to mouth feeds from China while the Great Kim Dong Dill supresses them from any minor contact from the outside world, I agree totally that the NK people should not suffer and be persecuted, but please, lets be realistic and realise they could never be more persecuted than they have been by their own leadership in the last 50 years, and if you think otherwise then I think you better look at facts and not some Nirvana that the UN is out of touch with reality..

I happened to spend the evening last night with three of my uncles, all of whom have served multiple times in SK. After many beers and lots of trash talking, their consensus was this:

1. SK will exhaust their legal channels first
2. If legal channels fail, then they will consider military action and black Lil Kim's eye
3. Eye blackening will likely consist of an artillery strike with an insurgent strike, design to both overtly sock Lil Kim in one eye, and stealthily black the other and shake his faith in the NK people's subservience to him.

There will be no war over this - SK has too much to lose.

And that's what they SHOULD do - why drag themselves down to NK's level when their country is 100000x better

Well NK claims this is fabricated. Just taking a step back, the last two years sh** has been hitting the fan like crazy! The economic system, the earthquake in haiti, and now this? There's more events if you list them, but I personally think the PTB need to hurry their agenda up before 2012.

It say's a "multi-national military investigation". That's the Elite to me! Why is it any other nations business?

But this can be huge because somehow someway, we might get involved, on SK's side. Now yes, we are in debt, and I think the majority of American's wouldn't stand for war, but whos to say we won't support SK w/ weapons, etc?

North Korea is a powerful rogue state, which the elite does not like, and this is evident in the assassination of the Polish President. This, to me, looks like the PTB is attempting to wipe NK off the grid. Look out America, this could get rough.

Like others have said, S.Korea would win a war against the North...but the price to pay for the victory would be colossal and imo not worth it. Call me naive but i still think there is a chance of ending the conflict through peaceful means, especially when kim is dead and for a brief moment a power vacuum is created and ready to be seized upon. I don't want to see millions of koreans dead over 40 dead officers, as callous as that may sound. S.Korea needs to be the bigger country.

It will be some time before anyone decides to blow up half the Korean peninsula.

We have to wait to see if the UN will pass a resolution and if China vetoes or abstains.

The white house have just responded,

White House says N. Korea's "act of aggression" is "unacceptable behavior" and a "defiance of international law."

U.S: N. Korea must understand that belligerence towards its neighbors and defiance of the international community are signs of weakness.

UN = ELITE - NEW WORLD ORDER. This, paired with the automatic disliking of NK by the U.S. tells me that we are supposed to believe that NK are the bad guys. Their denying this whole thing saying it's fabricated, however they are willing to go to war over over it. If they are willing to go to war, wouldn't they just do it? Why would they even deny an attack on SK if they're willing to go to war anyways? Looks like a fabrication to me, and an attempt to get rid of rogue NK.

I personallly believe it's none of our business, but I guess that's just me.

You mean sanctions such as the One Billion a year the South gives the North in aid...each year?
That is why the North is denying the sinking...needs its foe to support it, but the dog still wants to bite the hand that feeds "South Korea has few economic options left to hurt the North. It has already suspended its unconditional handouts that once were worth more than $1 billion to the North, which has an estimated yearly GDP of $17 billion"

[edit on 19-5-2010 by paradiselost333]

This is assuming they made the attack. We simply do not have any clue, since they are denying it, and there's really no way to know at all. But one thing is for sure we can't believe neither one. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't, but there is absolutely no way to know for sure, therefore don't get mad at NK. I want to know what the "evidence" that the UN found, especially with NK declaring this whole thing is fabricated. ROGUE STATE ELIMINATION.

Wait- you know what? I think it was the TERRORISTS.

I have sifted through the thread and it appears the majority believe that north Korea actually sank the South Koreans vessel.

For the record I personally do not think that North Korea sank this vessel and this is a another classic example of how one country possibly (USA) can get what it wants by using another country to do its dirty work. Of course the USA will support South Korea, look whats in it for them. Maybe this was the real reason why Kim Jong II travelled to China. Time will tell

How many of you on here can honestly say the information you have heard about the DPRK can say that its information presented without bias ! All of the information you read or hear about the DPRK is from the western media from a country that holds sanctions against the DPRK
and its the DPRK , yes the democratic peoples republic of Korea , not North Korea as so many of you call it !

its the DPRK , its a socialist republic not a communist state akin to the stalinist regime of the former soveit union !

get that right .

Have any of you bothered to try and get further information on the DPRK apart from the stuff you read and see in wester media which is most likley pro US imperialist propaganda designed to keep your believing that capitalism works and socialism is EVIL

many people in the DPRK have more freedoms than you americans , they have social health care , free university level education , yet they cannot trade with the rest of the world because of sanctions on the them from the G8 controlled UN security council

no wonder they cant feed or heat there families , A: the crops grown in the DPRK arent enough to feed the growing population , yet sanctions restrict international trade which chokes them!

B they arent allowed to develop nuclear power because the sanctions forbid them from developing uranium

So check the details !

Befriend some people from the DPRK and hear their story before you condemn them as evil communist baby killers !

again your being brain washed by the empire controlled state media propaganda machine !

I don't like to be told to F Off.... I am unsure of where you are from, but I have spent over 15 years living in Asia, I am Australian, my wife is Chinese and I have vested the greater part of my working career in Asia including South Korea and Greater China.

I speak with some borader knowledge around the workings of relationships between China and the Korean Peninusla, and as a mandarin speaker I understand the chinese thinking of NK.

Your reply here shows that you are extermely shallow in your thoughts, and chose a personal attack to my comments, you show a particulary knaive and shallow knowledge around the subject matter and try to position my comments to a broader personal view of the world.

I will not in return tell you to F Off, in return I will suggest that you Grow Up, that is perhaps diplomatic diplomacy...

On your comments, Dr David Kelly springs to mind

Tho I'm not so sure a set up is needed, the condemnation might be enough for North Korea to respond without much other provocation.

I've said a couple of times that when it looks like the markets will dip again then we could see another conflict kick off just before the markets crash.. and we certainly are in a downward trend at this moment in time.

But we shall see... it certainly looks like the UK is staning alongside the US and South Korea going by Hagues comments today..

Can you believe this crap!!!! Beligerence!!! They killed South Korean Sailors, and sunk a ship!!!!

“North Korea must understand that belligerence towards its neighbors and defiance of the international community are signs of weakness, not strength,” Gibbs said. “Such unacceptable behavior only deepens North Korea’s isolation. It reinforces the resolve of its neighbors to intensify their cooperation to safeguard peace and stability in the region against all provocations.”

Meanwhile, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon learned of the findings with “heavy heart and serious concern.” “The Secretary-General appreciates the restrained and patient efforts of the Government of the Republic of Korea to investigate this incident in an objective and scientific manner by both domestic and international experts,” said Martin Nesirky, a spokesman for Ban. “The facts laid out in the report are deeply troubling,” he added.

so the facts are in a "scientific manner by experts". That OBVIOUSLY means we are supposed to just assume it's true, regardless of the fact that they DON'T SHOW THEIR EVIDENCE. What is that? Seriously? It's like everyone, including the UN, KNOWS WITHOUT A DOUBT that NK did it. I don't know about you, but I wanna know what it is that's so powerful that they found. I wanna see the evidence myself and make my own opinion before I just take someone else's, idc if they're experts or not.

I don't like the way the msm is addressing this. It is not a fact that NK sunk SK´s ship.

The evidence is a NK thorpedoe. But is it possible that other countries launched a NK thorpedoe? I believe so. So, lets add some conspiracy spice to this story. We can see it from many angles, each angle being a hypothesy.

1) NK didn't do it. China did it and made it look like it was NK.

Now, does China want war with the US? Do they need it? Is this the right time?

2) NK didn´t do it. The US did it and made it look like it was NK.

Does the US want to create an excuse to invade NK? Does it believe China would get in the way and if so, does it intend on getting into war against China? Is this the right time to go into such a war for the US?

3) NK did it, but not as something planned by the government, but by the act of some crazy NK military person.

Is it possible that some crazy military in the command of the submarine decided to sink the SL´s ship? Was the SK´s ship on international waters, or was it in NK´s territory? Was there an official order to sink any ship crossing the broder and if so, maybe the sub´s crew were just following orders as it is expected from military.

4) NK did it as planned.

It is all a plan from the NK. What plan? Go to war? Is that country really interested in going to war? If it attacks SK first, it probably beleves the US would intervene, but would China get in the way in this scenario? Because in this case, it is not about the US using a BS excuse to invade a country, but NK losing its temper and trying to invade SK. Would China invade SK with NK if US only helped defending SK?

So, which is it? Who is behind this and what is their purpose? Is any of those parties involved really interested in a war? Maybe the US. Maybe they sunk SK´s ship and made it look like it was NK in an attempt to make China rethink it´s support for NK. ´cause folks, maybe that´s all it takes for the US to attack NK. To have China withdrawing its support for NK.

Or maybe it was just a crazy NK´s military in command of that sub...
