US: NKorea Must Face 'Consequences' for Attack


www.aolnews.com

On Thursday, he vowed to take "resolute countermeasures" against the North. But military retaliation looked too dangerous and less of an option given the vulnerability of South Korea's capital, Seoul, and its 10 million some residents to North Korean artillery located just across the border.

Lee has not announced what steps South Korea will pursue against the North. Options include taking the issue to the U.N. Security Council, where North Korea has been previously sanctioned over nuclear...

So South Korea does not want a confrontation with the North because it is dangerous to their capital city of Seoul, that is understandable.

But S. Korea can't just let them get off the hook for this, they killed 106(?) men on that ship and they need to be punished. If the UN can't do anything about it, or what they do is too weak I think S. Korea should start preparing for war.

Evacuate vulnerable areas of Seoul, and prepare for an all out war.

To be utterly honest they won't do anything, I find the whole timing of the release of the information (at the time the markets are nose diving) to convenient... more smoke and mirrors.

I feel for the families caught up in this that have faced the loss of loved ones.

yeah its pretty much like this.

BIG WORLD CHANGING EVENT IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

stupid petty human arguments in Korea.

While lives were lost and Korea was acting stupid, they should be more intestested in putting that on hold and working on a solution to save our planet. If enough pressure is released in the gulf it could trigger large tectonic movements (earthquakes) really soon... So..

yeah thats my 8 cents (friggin inflation man)

I'm in total agreement with you on this one. People have been killed and these two will posture like children in the school yard.

"I'll get you"

"Oh yeah?"

"Yeah."

"Prove it."

"I will. Just try me."

The UN needs to step in but at the same time, N. Korea has a history of completely ignoring the UN. Do I smell another military buildup in the Pacific? I think so.

Its a tough spot. On one hand something has to be done. Other nations can't let crazy Kim get away with blowing up another country's ships whenever he likes.

On the other hand, what can be done to them? They are already under a ton of sanctions and any military action runs the risk of Kim going nuts and starting to shell South Korea.

The only thing that will probably effect them is if China does something or turns against them.

I really dislike the timing, it is to convenient... we appear to be constently jumping frying pan to fire with these situations.. At least that is how the establishment and the MSM make it appear.

The truth is out there, but what is it.. we know in this situation people have died, which is awful and I honestly would not put it past the North, but on the other hand the North are easy to provoke, like a trained puppy barking on que.

I won't go as far as to to say false flag.. but the timing of the release of the report smells fishy.. I hate that we live in such a divisive world.

Firstly it was 46 S. Korean Sailors that were unaccounted for and not 106 which is the total number of crew aboard a Pohang-class corvette (PCC-772).

It is not worth going to All Out war at the risk of thousands or even millions of lives over this loss of 46 lives.

Besides they'd be playing into Kim's fantasy of going to war with the South to help the North's dismal economy.

So if I punched you in the face everyday and told you that if you swing back I would kill your whole family you would allow me to punch you in the face everyday?

Where does the line stop? Those 46 dead may seem meaningless to you but I bet their friends and family think differently.

You don't let bullies push you around and take your lunch money because if you do they will keep doing it.

Explanation: Unfortunately the Korean War NEVER ENDED!


Korean War [wiki]


The war began on 25 June 1950 and an armistice was signed on 27 July 1953.



North Korea unilaterally withdrew from the armistice on May 27, 2009, thus returning to a de jure state of war.




Armistice [wiki]


An armistice is a situation in a war where the warring parties agree to stop fighting. It is not necessarily the end of a war, but may be just a cessation of hostilities while an attempt is made to negotiate a lasting peace.


De jure [wiki]


De jure (in Classical Latin de iure) is an expression that means "concerning law", as contrasted with de facto, which means "concerning fact".


So when the armed South Korean military naval vessel was sunk in DISPUTED waters a legal state of WAR already existed!


Personal Disclosure: Vote 1 China [ATS] before its to late!

Absolutely, smells about as clean as a warehouse full of week old mackerel on a hot July day. Clearly we need to monitor this situation closely. I know that's what I'll be doing.

South Korean ship sailing too close to the wind!
Parts of a North Korean torpedo on the sea bed which looks rustier than my mates’ old Bedford van!
British and American Specialist positive it’s a North Korean weapon!!!! What do the South Korean specialists think?
Why are British and American Specialists pointing the finger of blame at an old adversary?
Lets face it where ever we and the Americans turn up these days, using the old fight against terrorism campaign when we're actually looking at oil and gas pipe lines, things kind of look really false. So who'd really want to trust our opinion on anything remotely devious? That is, of course unless North Korea has billions of gallons of untapped oil? Then I guess we could all jump on the 'Fight communism bandwagon!'
Put it this way, if our shoddy attempts at saving the world from one terrible thing to another get anymore transparent or embarrassing I think it might be far better if we just turned up on another countries doorstep with an army in tow and just told them straight....'We want your oil!'
