Learn proper grammar it makes your posts so much easier to understand.

Things like full stops and comer's and paragraphs.

Anyway, what exactly are you even referring to? Are you saying Vitchilo's constant watch on the Korean peninsula is wanting the world to end?

Perhaps we should all ignore the serious issues of the world out of fear of being labeled a "Doomer"?

I have to admit, I skipped over your above post because I simply didn't feel like trying to decipher the run on sentence. Sure, I'm sure plenty of people will read it still, but I guarantee you're missing out on an audience with people like me not even bothering to read a post with no hint of grammar.

So ignore the overboard posts? Pretty simple.

You have already derailed the topic, so unless you have some news updates or intelligent input into any of the new updates already posted I'd say go post your complaint on the Board and Questions section.

Activity at N.Korean Nuclear Sites Sparks Frenzied Speculation

North Korea has dug a new tunnel more than 500 m deep at a nuclear test site in Punggye-ri, North Hamgyong Province, intelligence sources said Tuesday. The North is also reportedly accelerating massive excavation work and construction of a new building at its main nuclear site in Yongbyon.

"If progress goes on at the current pace, the North will have dug a cave 1 km deep, the depth where it is possible to conduct a nuclear test, between March and May next year," the officer said.

But a South Korean security official said, "The North has never admitted what it is building. We're just speculating that it's building a nuclear facility whose purpose is unclear."

Probably for more enrichment and a nuclear test on Kim Il Sung 100 year anniversary on April 15.

S. Korea to turn on Christmas lights near border with N. Korea
Nice.


A translation of a Chosun article
This article is about the rumors that NKorea might have ``suitcases nukes``... which were lost when the Soviet Union collapses and may have ended in NKorea hands. Apparently according to one of their propaganda broadcast, they have a few and they will use them by infiltrating commandos in Seoul and blowing them up. I think this is 110% BS.

And in other news, the massive shelter drill in Seoul will start at 0000 EST or in about 1h40.

UPDATE :

During the nationwide drill all road traffic supposed to halt & pedestrians to shelter. Hasn't been such a full-scale drill in decades. 8 minutes ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

I am not Nostradamus... But watch.. these drills are going to be used to get the population under ground... then.. let the fireworks begin... the NK's have so many spies in SK.. they cant announce this.. they will get everyone in bunkers then announce "This is NOT a drill".. and the destruction of NK will begin..


The meeting with China was just to appease the NK's ... they feel confident that China will back them.. they know how the world perceived the announcement of "common ground" after the meeting. China is playing buddy....

The carrier just off their shore is going to start raining down missiles in roughly 1.5 hours!

May not be 100% correct.... but I am hoping this happens...

NK & SK unite - korean Peninsula solved
All of the surrounding countries attack Israel - Israel near obliterated... but all of those surrounding it - decimated.

Imagine... all the people!!! .. Ok for real... The world would have to lust after war to bring a ww3 after these events.

Well thanks.

And Seoul using this drill as a cover is a possibility, but unlikely since according to OPLAN 5026 the US would have needed to deploy an aircraft carrier near SKorea, more troops and more bombers.

Pyongyang on Offensive, Literally

North Korea's biggest newspaper, Rodung Shinmun, wrote that the Nov. 23 shelling of Yeonpyeong Island was a "provocation" to North Korea—a mirror image of recent international accusations that the North had provoked the South in launching the fatal artillery fusillade on the island.

Four more articles Tuesday on KCNA carried general criticism of South Korea, the U.S. and Japan, countries that North Korea's authoritarian regime has long portrayed as ready to invade the North at any moment. Others conveyed statements from what the North said were its international allies, such as a report of a Malta group's statement, "U.S. and S. Korean Puppet Forces' Moves for Invading DPRK Slammed."


NKorea increasing the war propaganda inside the country is not a good sign.

V:

Based on your most recent news post, it *appears* that your speculations about April 2011...are more on target.

But, hopefully never, and I can put this out of my mind for a while.


As always, thanks for the wide-eyes open-

Yeah but really... so what if they test a nuke? No big deal.

Gen. Kim Sang-ki, commander of the Third Army, has been nominated to become South Korea's new Army chief, the defense ministry said Wednesday.

The ministry plans to conduct a reshuffle of three-star generals later this week

So a big change of military leadership...probably more hawks than doves this time around.

U.S. Military Figures Warn of War on the Korean Peninsula

Former and incumbent U.S. military officials are warning of a war on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of North Korea's recent provocations. The warning came ahead of a visit to China by a U.S. delegation led by Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg on Tuesday.

Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen on Monday said the danger of war is rising on the Korean Peninsula and that the North has raised the ante in its aggression against the South. He was speaking to U.S. troops stationed in Iraq.

William Cohen, a secretary of defense during the Clinton administration, said on a Fox News program the same day that the U.S. should increase its troops in the region at least for a while if the North keeps ratcheting up tensions.

Yep. This is a dangerous situation, this is not the typical ``NKorean provocation``... hopefully the change of power happens without a war.

I stand corrected.

I thought you said that April 2011 would be the time that NK would do more than test a nuke, as in attack SK *with nukes*.

Sorry for the prior post.

I saw this and so Im adding it here:


SEOUL - Kim Kyung-ji began sixth period math class Wednesday afternoon by giving her middle school students three-ply, nonwoven face masks, to use during the simulated air strike by North Korea. Kim told all 30 youngsters to wrap the masks around their ears. She instructed them to move quickly - staying low to the ground, if possible - when the siren went off.

Classroom Nos. 4 and 3 will exit the second floor before we do, Kim told them. We'll follow after that.

"Do we get any drinks or snacks?" one student asked.

"If North Korea really attacks we're not going to line up," another said. "We're just going to run."

Jeez Nomad451 what a nice way to make a new member feel welcome ... and maybe before you pick fault with someones grammar ... your should check your spelling.

I believe the correct spelling for a [ , ] is comma and [ ,,,,,, ] in the plural is commas ... grammatically there is no need to use an apostrophe [ ' ]

Nothing more embarrassing than someone picking fault with someone else and missing their own glaring errors ! (how silly do you look right now).

Back to the topic at hand though...South Korean intelligence officials have stated that North Korea is allegedly
building a tunnel for nuclear tests? This could very well be a made up threat to justify an Invasion of NK...with America backing SK up completely now and both of them deploying more troops around the Peninsula. Who knows...So many lies nowadays
