"The puppet group dared make an uproar over 'a provocation' from someone and cry out for 'punishment' like a thief crying 'Stop the thief!'" the North's KCNA news agency said.'

"The fact that they have indiscriminately fired upon a defenseless civilian zone was a brutally inhumane action, an illegal and intentional action against the U.N. constitution and the armistice between the North and South Korea."

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.



now my opinion, war will happen with North Korea, I don't know when, but with tensions this high and the world changing around us, I think it's inevidable.


So my question, who do you think would win? Our troops are spread too think and I think N Korea know that, on the other hand they have China, a growing super power. Where will they stand when war erupts?


Your thoughts?

I think this attack and the revelations about the nuclear enrichment are just a ploy to gain more concessions at the bargaining table. North Korea must know it can't actually beat South Korea in a fight, let alone it's allies.

hmmmm. Why can't it win? It has a massive standing army, a crazy, ruthless leader, and a whole bunch of guns pointed right at a super overpopulated country. Also they have nuclear weapons, and China, wherever they may stand.

Comparison of North and South Korea military

Throw in the US, Japan, Australia possibly some others. How can North Korea win? Their military isn't very advanced and they can only get supplies from China. How long could they last in a real fight? They would certainly lose any hope of sea or air supremacy almost instantly, along with their naval and air forces.

Obviously the way to break the country is to stop supplies crossing the Chinese boarder one way or the other. China may be a powerful country but it simply doesn't have the naval capacity to stage a major breakout in the region as there are many island nations with powerful air forces in this region. They would have no choice but to cooperate. Or at least be seen to be cooperating.

I wouldn't put it past either Korea to fire at each other. EVENTUALLY there will be some sort of escalated conflict in this area. To think otherwise would ignore the realities of the situation.

this war would not be about who wins, it would be about showing power that they are not afraid of starting one, too see if we have the nerve to respond with force, a sine of weakness to them a sine of self restraint to us, how far are they willing to go?

They have been taking pot shots at each other across the DMZ for decades. THIS is nothing new. What is new is the younger generation waking up to the facts and reality of the situation. Here is the funniest thing I've heard all day regarding this situation it's North Korea's response and explanation of the situation.



That has to be the saddest Orwellian type radio broadcast I've heard in a long time....

"The South Korean Puppets" They actually have the nerve to call South Korea a "Puppet" Meanwhile South Korea Has trade agreements with hundreds of nations around the world, their people are free to move about the globe and post opposing views at anytime they wish of their own Government are more politically and economically freer than North Korea, which relies heavily on Chinese hand me downs, controls their population with an Iron fist, crushes any opposing view with brutality and refuses to allow North Koreans to travel abroad freely.

Interesting perspective.

Read the link N korea wouldn't even have to move ground troops to bring seoul to the ground, I'm not saying they could win but they could give the south absoulte hell.

I have a question that I haven't seen raised yet.

If North Korea really only targeted "civilian" areas, how is it that 50% of the people killed were South Korean military soldiers?

When the U.S. kills civilians, we call them "casualties of wars", or "collateral damage".

My point is, are we really sure that NK didn't target valid military targets? The people who got killed is strong evidence for this, and that's a fact. Why aren't the civilians who got killed considered "collateral damage"?

it's different now, we didn't have a 2 financialy draining wars going on for 10 years army bases with troops literaly all over the world, nuclear bombs, etc. Things about us are just different now, we had a constotution back then, our people were tougher, everyones weapons were less ineficient. I'm not underestimating us i'm just saying our troops ARE spread thin. 28,500 to over a million strong. That's not spread to thin?

yes, thats a VERY good question, our media is incredibly one sided, when war finaly does break out, our media will say it was N korea's fault, no matter how it acutlly happened.

As to your question, I have no answer except if they did target valid millitary facilities we would never know about it.

This guy can claim what he wants, but historically, countries led by outright whacko-nutjobs have not fared well in conflict.

Above all else, you'd figure this rodent of a human being would have researched that a bit more in depth.
