Twitter - 2 minutes ago


SK has started their largest drill. I don't think NK will do anything though.

Nah would be too obvious. They'll wait when the South is not prepared... like during an election or something.

Thing is, if North Korea tests a nuke in April, will that be seen as a provocation worthy of bombing the North?

PM calls for 'heavy punishment' against illegal fishing amid row with China over sunken boat

Yeah continue pissing off China, Lee...real good strategy there.

Why we need talks with North Korea
Yep.

By April everything will be settled down and nobody will say anything like the other times Kimmie tested his toys. He will test his nuke because by that time he will need more attention...

Would the US and Canada get struck by radioactive clouds if a nuke blows somewhere in Korea?? That'd be really bad :S

I'd say not since back in WW11 when the US dropped two bombs on Japan, the fallout never reached here, or though we were told...

North Korea's best interest is to stand down.

The best thing they could of ever done.

Their wussies they will attack when everyone is not paying attention.

Just like a bully looks around to make sure no one is watching before he steals your lunch money.

Some analysts said Seoul's show of force deterred the North. Others said the hardline regime had been told by close ally China to exercise restraint before a visit to Washington by President Hu Jintao starting on January 19.

news.yahoo.com...

Apparently China told Kimmie not to fire on SK until after Jan 19. So China still has control over the nut...

The Chinese visit to the US uh... Kim Jong Un birthday is around that time I think...mid January.

Lee says tough reaction to N. Korea's provocations necessary for peace

Except if it wasn't for US-China, North Korea would have bombed the island for sure and it would likely be full scale war right now. So your peace, you can shove it up your butt.

North Korea brands US politician 'human scum'

North Korea has labelled the incoming head of the United States' House Foreign Affairs Committee as "human scum" and an "anti-communist fanatic" - but is not apparently up to speed on Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's background - or her gender.

Always kind words I see..


They thought she was a man...


In a blistering attack on the Republican politician from Florida, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said Ms Ros-Lehtinen's calls for "strong countermeasures" against Pyongyang for its artillery attack on an island off South Korea in November were a "malignant vituperation against the dignified DPRK and its system."

Ms Ros-Lehtinen has also urged the State Department to list North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism and described its as a "rogue regime."

Pyongyang has not taken too kindly to her descriptions, but made the mistake of assuming its detractor was a man.

She ``kinda`` look like a man if you look fast enough.

NK threatend to attack if they staged wargames last week.

They then backed off after the wargames saying they wouldnt do a thing,

The US And SK moved the boundary a little and held live fire off the island.

NK failed to even mutter a word.


Sorry, but the US and SK stepped up and said take your shot.

NK stood down and went back to its corner.

Just another weak dog looking for a bone

Well according to all the information we have, North Korea did intend to bomb the hell out of the island. They backed down just because China/US asked them to.

If China/US had been busy elsewhere, didn't take this seriously, the whole thing would have gone down.

How long before the Kim Jong Il sex tape?


Hopefully there's a coup at some point and this whole thing ends without a war.

Chinese Media Express Concern over S.Korean Military Drills

Chinese media are expressing concern over the military exercises South Korea held in Pocheon near the inter-Korean border on Thursday.

The China Youth Daily said that South Korea is raising tensions with its series of massive military drills and that Seoul’s military and political hard-line stance against North Korea is escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Well all the various isotopes have half lives from weeks to billions of years... So give nature enough time and everywhere gets irradiated somehow. A microscopic speck of uranium is not going to reduce in radioactivity in any meaningful amount in your life time... You'd never notice to breath it in, and if it nestles nicely in your lungs, well not great.

Ever human currently alive everywhere on the Earth has probably been exposed to either the bombs (hundreds of atmospheric tests as well as the 2 used in anger remember) and / or one of the accidents.

Yay! Cancers, birth defects and fertility rates... yay

N. Korea says ready for sacred war based on 'nuclear deterrent'

N. Korea's latest IRBM believed to be able to carry nuclear warhead: expert

Fact is, North Korea will only use nukes if it's invaded.

Those statements by the North... I think more and more that Kim is bi-polar.

More details on their threat...

N. Korea says ready for sacred war based on 'nuclear deterrent'

According to the North's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), Kim Young-chun, minister of the People's Armed Forces, made the warning while reading a report during a ceremony in Pyongyang marking the 19th anniversary of leader Kim Jong-il gaining supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army (KPA).

"The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK (North Korea) are getting fully prepared to launch a sacred war of justice of Korean style based on the nuclear deterrent at any time necessary to cope with the enemies' actions deliberately pushing the situation to the brink of a war," Kim was quoted by the KCNA as saying in the report.

Referring to the tense situation on the Korean Peninsula, Kim went on to say that the South Korean forces perpetrated such military provocations as shellings against North Korea during their recent exercises for a war of aggression in the Yellow Sea.

"The enemy's scenario for aggression aimed at the start of another Korean War has reached the phase of its implementation. The army and people of the DPRK never make an empty talk. Should the enemies intrude into the sky, land and seas of the DPRK even 0.001 mm, the KPA will as ever continue dealing more devastating physical blows at them without hesitation," Kim said.

"In case the U.S. imperialists and their followers finally spark off an all-out war, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will not only wipe out the aggressors but blow up their bases and thus eradicate the root cause of war and surely accomplish the historic cause of national reunification," he said.


As always, they say that if their territory is violated by even an atom, they will destroy the enemy... they are predictable... it's ridiculous.

What I said they would say about the drills yesterday :


Nothing yet. Probably will say that it's provocative and that they will strike back with all their might if even an inch of their territory is violated or something like that.
