Yea if the south looks even the least bit intimidated the son will look SUPERB, in front of his people. Not to mention the people of south Korea, will be put in even more danger to random North Korean, attacks when they feel like doing so under whatever guise without worrying so much of a reaction. I don't think North Korea, can afford not doing anything if the south does its drills on the border, simply because this is a image stunt for the new leader of North Korea, in my opinion. Its a mess, the only thing I can think of really is to somehow get an emergency meeting between the two country's and talk it out however they wish to do so, if they refuse to talk to one another then well their you have it. What troubles me is we have American troops in the DMZ, and once fighting starts America, will be in the fight.
I do not think the majority of the American, people even have any idea how close things are to a war or at least a battle in Korea, is right now. I have been watching Korea, for years and this is another situation that looks pretty hard to defuse right now, if we were betting the odds the odds are in favor for the two Korea's to be shooting at each other in the next few hours. Just saying. I hope not of course for all of our sakes. Thats all I have to really say about that, now we sit back and watch what happens. I hope when I wake tomorrow morning I am not seeing war headlines in Korea.


this is no joking matter.

Like I said during the last drills, nothing will happen. Kim Jong-Il has too much to lose and nothing to gain by attacking the South. He's just showing junior the ropes. Pound table, get money (aid) buy Mercedes and scotch.
The only problem is the world will not let junior continue another generation of the old ways.

Kimmy lives very well while his people live in a vacuum. Should the people or the military even catch a glimpse of the lifestyle of the South, his regime is gone. Nope, nothing to gain but a lot to lose.

And what if the world decides not to give them aid this time, and the North continue with provocations and further nuke testing? It seems that war is inevitable, even if it can somehow be avoided today and remain at most a minor skirmish.

And the last drills were on 23rd Nov. which did lead to the shelling of this same island, by N.Korea.

Call on IT'S people... the North Korean people... that means it's just propaganda for inside North Korea by the government saying that Little Kim doesn't want war and it will all be because of the ``capitalist dogs who want to destroy the great socialist country of Kim Il Sung``...

Blue House says national sovereignty is at stake, only weather can stop it
South Korea ain't backing down.

I think they mean internal unity, and not unity as in North and South. Sort of a pep talk to the people of NK.

If anything this makes me think they know that war is about to break out and are getting in ahead of time to rally the population. Hope i'm wrong though.

Yeah, I was kind of getting that impression also, although they seem to be allowing plenty of talk of leeway because of the weather.

This is like Bush saying ``I want peace`` and for peace, I'm gonna kill a million civilian in Iraq!

That's propaganda for the North's population.

I'm so happy for all of this. The North Korean people deserve to be liberated from their oppressive regime. Liberty is a human right and if we must bomb the # out of the North Korean military then so be it. I'm just glad my taxpayer money is being used to promote the well-being of lesser nations oppressed by their psychopathic leadership. I got the day off tomorrow so I'll be glued to CNN all night. Let's make it happen boys. Defeat EVIL. Bomb North Korea to oblivion, let God rapture the innocent ones to safety.

The world powers cannot, will not give in. They /we too are training junior; and the spoiled child tactics wont be tolerated. Even China has had enough of it.

Then step 2, aid only if the nuke testing stops. There starving in the North, they have no choice but to eventually bend. Or what suicide, nah... they lil kim lives too well for that .

This is why NK needs to be stopped, now would be good!


This film is compelling, and while I normally say that regimes have to be toppled from within, I now fully believe we HAVE to take out that government no matter what.

It really is like 1984 in there. Absolutely terrifying.

I hope NK is attacked and soon. We have to remove that regime.

I am sick to my stomach of hearing this nauseating rhetoric

:south kora has alot at stake and thy know it. theyre a modern country" and "North Korea knows they cant compete with the more advanced south korean military with the US".

Than why the hell are they continuing to antagonize each other?

Its bulll#. The rhetoric is bull# and its just all bull#. they want war and theyre forcing it on their citizens whether they want it or not.

Well, the fog in Seoul has almost cleared, not sure about the drill location but Seoul is almost clear so I assume it will be clearing there too. Doesn't look like the weather is going to stop this happening.

Seoul live feed

I for one hope the north does something really stupid. I have to believe, if Kim, his son, most of the leadership were blown to little pieces, North Koreans life would soon be much better.

"No doubt in my mind that there will be a response" - US envoy in Pyongyang fears escalation if SKorea drill goes ahead


Gov't to create citizen volunteer unit to beef up civil defense

The government will create a new civil defense corps next year consisting of volunteers from women and middle-aged men, as part of efforts to beef up the nation's defense posture in the face of North Korea's constant military threats, the home affairs ministry said Monday.


They should put women in the draft. After all, women need to know how to defend themselves too. Recently the SKorean supreme court said it was not discriminatory that women weren't included in the draft...

As some journalist was saying... FOG deserves the nobel peace prize for 2011.

If thats the case, than why did the North attack the south just 2 weeks ago?

Clearly hes not afraid, and i would say hes completely intent on starting a war with the south.
