How maddening is this folks?
Nothing seems to be confirmable... firing? waiting until tomorrow?
North backing down? Imminent attack expected?
No one seems to be able to get any accurate info just now.
Here's hoping for a peaceful, long term settlement.

Dow Jones: South Korea Joint Chiefs Of Staff Say Artillery Drill Hasn't Started Yet less than a minute ago via web

Seems not started yet...

IMO DELAYED TO TOMORROW... THE DAY OF THE ECLIPSE.

If they hear firing, but the drill hasn't started yet, could that mean a conflict has begun which is not the drill itself?

I don't know about that - we have heard reports of sounds of fire. We have heard reports that the officials will not announce until drill is over. Accordingly - we really don't know what is going on at this very moment

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but . . .

This interesting regarding the location of the artillery to be used in the drill. So maybe it is not as bad as we all are thinking, unless as the article states later, the North uses this as nothing but an excuse.


Q: Very quickly, sir, what are your concerns about South Korea overnight saying it will begin live-fire drills on Yeonpyeong Island sometime in the next few days and your concerns about the instability and what could -- what could happen, what the impact may be of them beginning live-fire drills in such a sensitive place?

GEN. CARTWRIGHT: Sure. Well, one, the area that they're going to conduct these live-fire drills is an established and well-used range, okay? So it's not a -- it's not a new activity, and it's not one that the North Koreans haven't seen on a routine basis.

dont know who this joung is but he is protesting the drills.... maybe a north korea plant..

Lee was one of the most powerful men during the previous Roh Moo-hyun administration. He appeared now as powerless as any other citizen.

I hope they do not, but remember an artillery drill was the reason why they retaliated the last time. The only difference now, is that South Korea will attack back quicker and probably more severely.
