Only problem is, I don't think they ever attacked a civilian population
or destroyed civilian infastructure.
when I hear statements like this
my mind starts remembering events
past like when GW Bush was criticized
for bombing civilian infrastructure in Afgh
and Iraq. And Bush said something like
"Well they shouldn't have terrorist in
civilian communities" or something to that nature.
Doesn't that apply here. It has been confirmed
that SK Marines were in the same area
as civilians. Doesn't the presence of
SK Marines make it a legitimate military
target to NK? Or is it a double standard
only for use by the US. ?

The U.S. forces also plan to mobilize battleships including the USS Cowpens, USS Shiloh, USS Stethem and USS Fitzgerald, according to the statement.
A US nuclear aircraft carrier is en route to South Korea to carry out scheduled war games in a show of force against North Korea.
The nuclear-powered USS George Washington, which carries 75 warplanes and has a crew of over 6,000, left a naval base south of Tokyo on Wednesday morning to join planned joint exercises with South Korea.

It is believed to be one of the largest ECHELON ground stations and appears to be physically and operationally similar to the American signals intelligence facilities at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado and Menwith Hill, United Kingdom. United States government personnel at Pine Gap are believed to be mostly from the National Security Agency and subordinate service-associated agencies as well as the Central Intelligence Agency

Lastly...our former PM, Mr K Rudd, now Foreign Minister speaks fluent mandarin, a handy skill when you
want to make sure the translator is on the ball.
