Alarming but make of this what you will..

South Korea deploys troops in border zone to ‘punish’ North

PANMUNJEOM: An eerie tension is building up on the border between South and North Koreas as the South is amassing troops to take punitive action against the communist North. The tension is also threatening future of Kaeseong, a joint industrial zone, which has often been touted as a model for Pakistan and India to build cooperative relationship along the Line of Control (LoC). The tension runs high after a North Korean submarine torpedoed a 1,200-tonne South Korean ship, killing over 50 sailors.


Erm i don't know what to make of this article AT ALL. Personally i would not trust the credilbity of what it says, surely if this was true there would be other reports. i find the below text pretty alarming if true.

Railway stations and bus stations in South Korea are full with young soldiers in their battle dresses, kissing their girlfriends and bidding adieu to their families. Leaves have been cancelled and rumours are thick in Seoul that government is even drafting young men into the army in an emergency.

To assume China will let the USA do as it wants because all that US debt could be the wrong way to look at it and China like before may help NK.

Seem fine to go after Iran because uncle sam say they want nukes but then wants to use nukes on NK if the going gets too hard seems a bit one sided to me.

if NK has the bio-weapons some say they have and lets face it no one will know unless war breaks out then any troops setting a foot inside NK might find they are not allowed back home for a real long time.

The USA can use it's stealth fighters at night and call kim a coward when he attacks the puppets in SK but was it not for the south the americans would not be attacking.

maybe both the USA and China need to sit this one out because no oil is involved and you never know north and south might unite if given time and left alone instead of the south relying on it's foriegn friends to come to the rescue.

NK will look like heaven after the planned economic meltdown we are facing at home if we let the IMF/NWO/WTO get away with it so they can introduce the amro and going along with any more wars is playing into their hands even if war makes good TV from a distance.

I wouldn't take that too seriously.

It's the they are making stuff up sometimes...but not every time... so... yeah. I would say it has a 10% chance of being real.

Yeah i agree. The level of detail that is given makes it seem even more far-fetched.

Another article... IMO this is BS too...since it's from 2009... but since people will post it eventually...

Breaking: US Army moves to DEFCON 2

Sources close to MiNa claim the US Army has moved their alert level to Defcon 2. This was initiated by the alarming situation in North Korea. The US Army has over 35,000 troops stationed in South Korea, well within reach of North Korean convential weapons.

North Korea has the largest artillery force (can be equipped with nuclear warheads) in the world, which adds more to the already tense situation.

Earlier today, N. Korea's leader Kim Jong issued threaths to the South Korean and US Navy ships for coming too close to North Korea's territorial waters. The South Koreans and the Americans, may be positioning themselves for a preemptive strike.

This refers to a further increase in force readiness just below maximum readiness. The most notable time it was declared was during the Cuban Missile Crisis, although the declaration was limited to Strategic Air Command. It is not certain how many times this level of readiness has been reached.

IMO they are at DEFCON 3... not DEFCON 2.

South Korea is at WATCHCON 2... so IMO they mixed them up...

Or I'm wrong and all hell is about to break loose

I believe war with North Korea is a very real possibility. Remember, Lil Kim as much of a clown as he is, is a very dangerous man. As pointed out in this thread earlier, he is a man with nothing to lose. He is the living definition of a psychopath.

psychopathic personality:

a personality disorder characterized by an abnormal lack of empathy combined with strongly amoral conduct, masked by an ability to appear outwardly normal.

psychopaths use charisma, manipulation, intimidation, sexual intercourse and violence to control others and to satisfy their own needs. Lacking in conscience and empathy, they take what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and expectations without guilt or remorse.

Sounds like our "little" guy right there. He is truly insane!

I don't understand why we along with several other countries just don't go in there and take him out?

Before we all start panicking over the very real prospect of war, understand one thing and it is that the likelihood of either side invading the other is very low. In fact, like most other situations similar to the Korean crisis, war will most likely be the result of escalations and mishaps as opposed to some premeditated action, which would include North Korea invading South Korea.

In other words, all those plans and scenarios that regard to our defense of the ROK from a DPRK invasion? Throw them all out the window. The South Koreans can also throw any plans for a preemptive strike against the DPRK out the window as well. If war does break out with the DPRK, it will because somebody screwed up or because our response to the Cheonan's sinking was met with something we totally did not expect.

All in all, things will get very messy and it will be a real "treat" to see who is able to survive the onslaught.

I think air dropping a generous amount of CBU-97's and MK40's will take the starch out of Lil Kim's army. Saddam's army developed a complete dislike for this munition, "Iron Rain". They surrendered en mass.

On top of these, I am sure we have at least of "few" of the following lurking, undetected in the area:

Los Angeles Class (SSN) submarines with anti-ship and anti-submarine capabilities loaded with MK48 torpedoes, land attack cruise missiles and Harpoon anti ship missiles.

Virginia Class Fast Attack Submarine with a full complement of Vertically launched Tomahawk Cruise missiles, Harpoon, and MK48 torpedoes for operations close to shore and anti-ship attacks.

Seawolf Class Fast Attack submarines also with a full complement of 50 Tomahawk cruise missile/Harpoon/Mk-48 torpedoes.

If necessary, the Ohio Class submarines, each armed with 24 Trident II SLBMs and 4 nuclear-powered SSGNs (cruise missile submarines), each capable of carrying 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles with conventional warheads.

The Ohio class sub carries 24 Trident I/Trident II/D5 Sea Launched Ballistic Missiles, each Trident contains 8 individually targeted 300–475 kT. nuclear warheads, along with a full compliments of Tomahawk Cruise Missiles. A nuclear attack from just one of these Ohio Class Submarines would completely devastate North Korea.

And this is what Lil Kim cannot see. His total destruction could arise from the ocean before he could get his first nuke off the launcher. Approximately 11 KH-11's over N. Korea giving us constant surveillence.

After a large onslaught of cruise missiles and his air defenses are taken out, in come the B-1's, B-2's, F-117's and B-52 with their munitions raining from the air. After this onslaught, comes the F-15's, F-16's, & F-18's to continue the air assault. A couple hundred A10 Warthogs sure would help with any remaining tanks or armored vehicles supporting their ground troops. It would be one hell of a battle!!

Lil Kim may like rattling his sabre at the West, but unlike him, we can walk the walk at any pace he would like. He can't hit what he can't see and should be careful of what he wishes for.

Nuking North Korea if North Korea did not use a nuke first would be very dangerous because RUSSIA AND CHINA are bordering them.

They could think those nukes are coming for them... even if they don't, I'm sure they don't want all that radiated dust going up their way.

And for some more news...

Military commanders to discuss measures on North's aggression

South Korea's top military commanders will hold a meeting Saturday to discuss countermeasures against further aggression by North Korea, officials said Friday, with the two sides engaged in one of their worst standoffs over Pyongyang's sinking of a Seoul warship.

So they prepare measures in case NKorea does something stupid like shooting up the propaganda speakers...

The meeting agenda is expected to include Seoul's response if the South Korean civilians at the Kaesong complex are taken hostage, according to the officials.

Or do that...

Well I don't blame them... unless of course they started the current escalation by torpedo'ing a ship.

Isn't lil' Kim in his last days? I'd guess he wouldn't want to die before seeing the war he's built up his whole life?

BIG NEWS.... Japan is now joining the game... And North Korea HATES JAPAN.

Japan acts against North Korea

TOKYO - JAPAN decided on Friday to tighten financial sanctions against North Korea over the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship in March, chief government spokesman Hirofumi Hirano said.

The cabinet decided to lower the cap at which people in Japan will have to report remittances to North Korea 'from more than 10 million yen to three million yen (about S$154,000 to S$46,000),' Mr Hirano said.

'Today the cabinet approved additional measures against North Korea,' Mr Hirano told reporters. -- AFP

IMO because of this, NKorea could do something stupid like launching a missile over Japan...

whats the betting lil kim is telling his people ...they will attackor us to steal our nuclear fusion technology ...............or is that actually the reason they will....?

posted on May, 27 2010 @ 10:19 PM
This is all China. China is trying to get the U.S. to take their focus off Iran and to not properly protect Israel. China will have lil Kim ratchet up the fireworks as Israel readies for war with Iran and its cronies.

Make no mistake, China wants to drag the U.S. into their backyard for a fight because we the U.S. are stopping them from plundering the natural resources of many mid-east and African nations. China can not project its army over vast distances because they only have under a hundred Hellos for instance. The massive Chinese army must travel by land and that opens them up to the mighty U.S. Air-force and Navy attack so good luck with that plan lol.

China mute on S. Korea's request to review probe's findings

SEOUL, May 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea has asked China to send a team of experts to check the outcome of a multinational investigation that found North Korea responsible for the deadly sinking of a warship, but Beijing has not responded to the offer yet, an official said Friday.

Funny. Maybe China is waiting for the report from Russia which sent experts... or China feels that South Korea is showing this to everybody so they can justify going to war...or if they see the proof, they won't be able to block sanctions against NKorea at the UN council...because it would be seen as siding with the killing of South Koreans...

China is kinda screwed. They side with North Korea, they are hated by everyone...they side with South Korea, more sanctions are pushed against North Korea and war on the peninsula is more likely or maybe even assured...

Do nothing, you're screwed, do something, you're screwed... The day they vote for sanctions at the UN is gonna be interesting that's for sure.

Obama, Hatoyama pledge to back Seoul's bid for sanctions on N. Korea: White House
Now Obama says he supports sanctions.

Also there's elections in South Korea next week...could be real interesting.

Wind of animosity gusts across peninsula, swinging S. Korean voters

North Korea denies responsibility, but over 70 percent of South Koreans surveyed this month said they trusted the veracity of the investigation, a factor that weighs heavily as 10,000 candidates are set to run in the local elections on Wednesday.

Military tensions between the Koreas are running high, and South Korean voters have historically swung to the right when the threat of their northern communist neighbor cropped up prominently.

The main opposition Democratic Party (DP) is worried the sinking is working against its odds of gaining a stronger foothold in the government, which it slams for bulldozing through costly projects.

But it has also taken on the challenge in a fashion that takes the simmering tension into account -- by bolstering its pacifist image.

A placard in downtown Seoul that calls for support for the top DP figure sums it up. "If you don't want war, then," it reads, showing the smiling portrait of Han Myung-sook, the former prime minister, although it was unclear what role a city mayor can play in national security.

The current DP leadership is considered to share similar ideology with former liberal President Roh Moo-hyun, who committed suicide a year ago amid a tightening graft probe involving his family. The ties between the Koreas thawed noticeably in the decade ending in early 2008 when he stepped down.

Embracing the criticism that Roh and his liberal predecessor, Kim Dae-jung, were too soft on North Korea's nuclear ambitions, President Lee took a harder approach on Pyongyang, which declared this week the end of all ties with the South Korean government.

If you don't want war... yeah GOOD LUCK SELLING THAT... a lot of people want revenge.

He declined to give his estimate on how many more votes the GNP would gain amid the tension, but expected President Lee Myung-bak, halfway through his tenure, to get a clear boost when his party consolidates its grip on power through the elections.

So political gain for those in power uh?

So this election will probably give more power to those in place right now, which are right wing and want a hard approach against North Korea. Question is, will that push us away from war or closer?

South Korea preparing to take additional measures against North Korea

SEOUL, May 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea is preparing to take additional measures against North Korea as it sees the possibility of limited violence by the North amid escalating tensions over Pyongyang's sinking of a Seoul warship, a senior military official said Friday.

"Following the rhetoric of threats, we expect that North Korea could actually carry out a military, non-military provocation," Major Gen. Ryu Je-seung, a senior official at the South Korean defense ministry's policy and planning division, told retired generals and admirals.

"So, our military is preparing to take additional military, non-military measures depending on North Korea's response and attitude," Ryu said.

An attack by the North would be possible if the South sets up loudspeakers along their heavily armed border and starts blaring anti-Pyongyang broadcasts, Ryu said, adding it will take some two weeks to set up the loudspeakers. Ryu didn't elaborate on what the South's additional measures would be.

Two weeks to set up the loud speakers... so this ain't over by a long shot.

U.S. military commander visits tense border with N. Korea

SEOUL, May 28 (Yonhap) -- The top U.S. military commander in South Korea visited the South's land border with North Korea on Friday and inspected the U.S. troops there as tensions mounted over March's deadly torpedo attack by the North on one of the South's warships, officials said. Army Gen. Walter Sharp, who is also chief of the United Nations Command (UNC) in the South, also visited the truce village of Panmunjom and reviewed "the various responsibilities associated with the Korean Armistice Agreement with the commanders on the ground," the UNC said in a statement.

Seems thats a direct message/threat to NK that US troops are on hand and are ready.

Safety of S Koreans at Kaesong Park must be ensured: Unification Ministry

SEOUL, May 28 (Xinhua) -- The South Korean government will " never tolerate" any threat from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) against its nationals at a joint industrial park in the border town of Kaesong on the pretext of Seoul's resumption of anti- Pyongyang propaganda activities, Seoul's Unification Ministry said on Friday.
