Looks like things are heating up again in the Korean Peninsula, but to be honest I don't think much will develop from this...as is with most of North Korea's saber rattling.

I don't want to come off war mongerer or anything, but I'm tired of all this talk from North Korea threatening to wipe out South Korea off the map and that they will teach the United States a lesson.

They sunk a South Korean ship and they are threatening to take action against South Korea because they went to the U.N...this is just too funny

The funny thing is, behind all these threats, ... if you were to go to N. Korea, the only thing they talk about is " Reunification" with S.Korea. The people believe that the evil imperialist americans are keeping S.Korea hostage or something, and the nation will become one again any day.

I say we just let them seal themselves off and not cross their territory under any circumstance or give them any reason to do something stupid. Give them a wide birth and let the government rot from the inside out.

Oh poor North Korea,
They had their feelings hurt again.
There is so little to do in the country and the government can't find many of it's own people to persecute so they need to extend themselves outside the state and pick on their southern neighbor.
Grow up NK and go play with your tin soldiers somewhere else.

North Korea threatens someone....
Ok, what else is new?

When it comes to breaking news something like "North Korea attacks XYZ", that might catch my attention.

I feel sorry for the North Korean people.

While the ridiculous joke of a leadership play out their chest thumping bravado and hate filled rhetoric... The people of North Korea are living in a real life 1984... Very little food, very little resources, Always watched and on permanent curfew...

Very sad indeed!

Ummm...did someone make up the torpedo attack on the SK ship? I know it is convenient to blame the boogey man for every event but trying to deflect the blame for this incident away from NK is silly.

I think he has been dead for awhile. His son is probably now in charge, I heard he was the one to order the initial attack on the SK ship.

Are you sure it was NK who sunk the ship? Remember the USS Liberty? Or many other events which were blamed on other nations in order to justify conflict?

I'm not saying they don't look guilty, I would expect it to be NK, although we have to take what they tell us with a grain of salt.

The mark of a well educated citizen is that of questioning.

OP: I think this is just more sabber rattling as usual. How many times have they "threatened" actions against SK in the past 6 months?

Didn't DPRK threatened to blow those South Korean loudspeakers that started broadcasting Anti-North propaganda few weeks back? I guess Kim Jong Il is more content with making empty threats of "All out war" and "Nuclear Strikes". Or is it the case that Beijing has told Kim to restrain at verbal rhetoric?

Exactly. Looks like everyone, from SK and China to USA is simply indifferent towards NK. Because of this, the DPRK launches an occasional verbal rhetoric of "devastating nuclear strikes"


One of the posters in an earlier thread commented that all the rhetoric coming from SK president was intended to boost popularity ratings so that the ruling party could do well in regional elections.

I too feel very sorry for the people of NK. Their life is a living hell, and they have to worship a deranged little clown, who thinks he is God's gift to mankind. If you want to get a picture of what its like in that country check out the video Shane Smith's Vice Guide to North Korea. What a joke that nation is.

Am i the only one who thinks they DIDN'T sink the ship?

After all N.Korea would no doubt have admitted it, nay bragged about it.... But in this case N.Korea seem almost afraid.

As one member said, i too feel sorry for the N.Koreans (and south).

But it looks like yet another cog in the war machine is turning.

/sigh

I'm with you on the false flag issue. But that's how the dice roll. Even China is against North Korea on this.

Is it just me, or do North Korea and South Korea sound like two bratty kids in the backseat lately?

"MOOOOOOOM! Hes touching me!"

"Im not touching you, Im not touching you, Im not touching you....."

"DONT MAKE ME SANCTION YOU!"

-silence-



*whisper* "Im not touching you...."

Where do the North Korean's get off? These threats are ridiculous! The North sank a South Korean ship in SK waters, and they expect to get a way with it? I applaud the South Korean government and their patience on this matter. They could have let the chips fall were they may and responded militarily in a retaliatory strike after confirming North Korea's role in the sinking of their naval vessel. If they attacked it would have been justified, but it would have been quite costly for the South and the region.

Going before the UN is their only alternative to bring closure to this matter and get retribution for North Korea's crime. A war on the peninsula would be a bloody affair, but if it happens, it is probably in everyone's interests that any military response has international support. The North Koreans need to can their threats and two-bit extortion ploys (suing for 75-trillion from Japan, the United States, and South Korea?), because they are dead wrong this time. If the rumors of the succession crisis are true, hopefully someone takes over with sense and common decency. If the world is lucky the new leader will bring the North out of the Cold War, and bolster normalization with the South. We will just have to wait and see? However, I think the South is making the right move by bringing the concerns before the UN before taking a military approach to solve the problem. Those artillery pieces aimed at Seoul and the nukes in North Korea's possession gives me the creeps.
