Who provoked who? About every two years the Democratic Republic of Korea provokes South Korea and the United States. It usually involves artillery over the DMZ, or perhaps "raids" through tunnels under the DMZ.
This time, with the sinking of the South Korean naval vessel, they may have gone too far. The US sunk the ship??? Okay, now I know where you're coming from.
Personally, I think the US, South Korea and Japan should put a TOTAL quarantine around North Korea. No food, medical supplies, nothing. We can't close the border with China, but the Chinese are not going to cause financial trouble for themselves just to protect North Korea. Naturally, this will not happen. The west has turned into a collective of gutless hand-wringers who refuse to defend their own interests for fear of insulting disfunctional, inferior cultures.

The North Koreans, both civilians and soldiers had long been defecting for decades. More so now with not enough food to go round.
Nothing to be alarmed about. Nothing new. Move along now.
Opposition groups say Pena was arrested for political reasons. Unoamerica, a group headed by Pena, said Tuesday his arrest "is part of a Cuban operation that looks to link opposition leaders with terrorist acts."
Chavez critics have said Cubans are heavily involved in the Venezuelan military and also are playing a key role in intelligence, communications and other areas.
The wife of the Salvadoran citizen Francisco Chávez Abarca, who is currently arrested in Venezuela where he has been accused of "terrorism," did not rule out that he was "abducted" in Guatemala by a group of Venezuelans and taken to the South American country.
"He was in Guatemala; in fact, he told me that his telephone card was running out of balance and that he would call me later. How is it possible that he appears overnight in Venezuela?" said his wife Karla Guadalupe Trigueros, a Salvadoran online newspaper reported on Monday.
According to the Venezuelan government, Francisco Chávez Abarca was a "close associate" to anti-Castro activist Luis Posada Carriles, convicted in Venezuela for the bombing of a Cuban airplane in 1976.

Castro coming out and blaming the US for the sinking of the souths ship does nothing but make himself look senile (crazy form old age). And you defending his possition doesn't help your cause very much. It's not every day I hear someone defending North Korea. You sure your not working incagnito for them?
There is no confirmed photograph of him as an adult.
