With all the military excersises going on on both sides, US and SK, then NK on the other side, at the same time.....I would think it is all just a show. I would doubt anything will happen, but then again, I cant say what will happen for sure.

Nothing new. There is always some sort of military troop movement from the North. Either it's a drill, for show, for muscle flexing, whatever. No one has the guts to pull the trigger.

Thankfully.

This small snippet from news story, reported quote from North Korea is what caught my eye, and before ya start..Yes I know it's been said before, its the combination of factors that resulted in this post....

**snippet:
"Because of the US imperialists and their South Korean puppet group of traitors' reckless military provocation against our republic, the peninsula is on the brink of war," he said.

"This is the worst situation ever."

This was posted yesterday by South Korean sources:


South Korea's defense ministry said in a report to Parliament Tuesday that the large numbers of soldiers, armored vehicles and artillery have been stationed near the Stalinist state's capital since mid-July. The report said the deployment appears to be related to a meeting of key communist party delegates next month and the party's 65th anniversary on Oct 10.

If So. Korea doesn't seem alarmed by this (something they have been watching and expecting), I don't see why we should ring an alarm just yet.

I would first think that Kim Jong Ill is getting some advice or direction in how to handle ex-president Jimmy Carter about the US citizen the North is holding.

Perhaps, but as soon as Jimmy hit town, Kimmy skipped it... Hmmmm

If you want to see a conspiracy here, I can't talk you out of it, nor will I try to.
I don't think this means war or any other underhanded (no more than usual) happenings.

Just my opinion of course. And apparently S. Korea's too.

Understood, just painting the picture here, what the viewer wants to see in it, is entirely up to them....

Pretty freaky... I watched the Nat Geo special on NK a while back and it was fascinating, sad, and scary all at the same time.

There's also a really good video series on Youtube by a guy who managed to get himself into NK, and made a documentary. I think the part that sticks into my mind the most is when he was taken to a tea house, and driven down a completely deserted 4 lane highway to a completely deserted parking lot, and this tea house with a solitary girl in it, yet the place was made to accomodate at least 20-30 people. He commented that it seemed she hadn't seen a tourist in months, and was almost brimming over with excitement just to see him for a couple hours.

One thing that is interesting though, at the border on the south side, all the rules are really strict, no pointing, no looking in eyes, etc., but on the north side, you can point, yell, drink beer, do whatever you want. With all the rules in the country, the border is like completely relaxed.
