I will be glued to ATS through the night to see if China or NK do anything about this. What are your thoughts, if NK fires at SK does the US fire back this time? If China interferes in any way how does the US respond?

the US and south korea had been exercising war games already which caused the first artillary shelling of the island in the neutral territory by the north. therefore i dont find anything alarming in your post. no offence but it seems a little like re-stating the stated. let us know if an actual war breaks out but otherwise i dont think theres much to look at. its like the war games and drills isreal was doing a few months ago. they never sent the planes with bombs they wer drilling in the end and everybody forgot about it. i feel this is likley to go the same way

Let's hope disaster is averted during the exercises. While I believe that the angry veterans in South Korea have every reason to protest and be upset, an attack during the exercises from either side could quickly spin out of control.

Are there any full news article on this to follow. Your link just shows the headlines. Wondering if the USS George Washington has arrived there yet?

The msm, at least the ones i'm getting, are all making a difference between this exercice / stage and what was going on for some days. They say "...the games planned to start on sunday..." an stuff like this. So yes you are correct but somehow the big guys / msm are separating those events. And so do i because i first got it from the MSM (shelling incident).

Let's see what happens and focus on how China will play in all this

Personally I don't think the DPRK leaders are stupid enough to carry out an attack while a US Aircraft Carrier is in the immediate vicinity, unless they aim to destroy it completely. It's hard to know what would make the most sense
scenario A: where N.Korea leaves them be until they leave, then blitz S.Korea once the U.S. presence is gone too far to be able to effectively respond.
Scenario B: Immediately draw the U.S. into a conflict hoping to torpedo or suicide attack the aircraft carrier, to first inflict billions of dollars of damages, reduce U.S. carrier superiority from 11 units to 10, and use the strike for powerful propaganda.

Scenario B isn't all that unlikely either
en.wikipedia.org...



Red, commanded by retired Marine Corps Lt. General Paul K. Van Riper, used old methods to evade Blue's sophisticated electronic surveillance network. Van Riper used motorcycle messengers to transmit orders to front-line troops and World War II lighting signals to get airplanes off the runways without using radio communication. Red received an ultimatum from Blue, that was essentially a surrender document, that Red must respond to within 24 hours. Given that Red knew that Blue was coming, by the second day of the exercise Red used a fleet of small boats to determine the position of Blue's fleet. In a preemptive strike, Red launched a massive salvo of cruise missiles, overwhelming the Blue forces' electronic sensors, destroying sixteen warships. This includes one aircraft carrier, ten cruisers and five out of the six amphibious ships. The equivalent of this success in a real conflict would have resulted in the death of over 20,000 service personnel. Soon after the cruise missile offensive, another significant portion of Blue's navy was "sunk" by an armada of small Red boats carrying out both conventional and suicide attacks, able to engage Blue forces due to Blue's inability to detect them as well as expected.

Come on we know what this is. They want to cover up the wikileaks release. This could possibly just be all hype to keep the talking heads busy reporting stuff. Maybe there will be some crisis of some kind but, it is just another false flag in my mind no matter what comes of it.

A massive U.S. aircraft carrier launched large-scale naval maneuvers Sunday with South Korea off the Korean Peninsula's west coast, military officials said, days after North Korea bombarded an inhabited southern island, in a potent show of force that North Korea threatened could lead to the "brink of war."

"The drills started around 6 a.m. Sunday with the USS George Washington joining our warships in the Yellow Sea," said an official at the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), adding the drills are taking place off the west coast town of Taean, far south of the tense Yellow Sea border where Tuesday's attack took place.


S. Korea, US kick off major naval drills despite N. Korea's threats

What worries me about your "b" option is whether or not NK has the capabilities to bombard that far out to sea with their artillery. A number of cannons with enough range and targeting skill could cripple the ability to launch aircraft from the deck by blowing holes in it. That would result in some issue with retaliation outside of escort ships. Even if NK couldn't effectively torpedo the ship, they could render it fairly useless for it's implied purpose.

Just speculation though, I don't know the effective range or power of NK's artillery, I just know they have a lot of them.

You don't have to do that, you know -- the "2nd" or "second line" thing. If a single-line post is valid to the topic, it isn't a "one-liner". One-liners have no real contributory content, and adding "2nd" won't help things. Your post was fine without it.

......and I agree... I think Slayer was referring to the first part of his post. WE HOPE [nothing happens]. I hope not also. Seems too much like a game of taunting to me, and the stakes are waaay to high for such a dangerous game. But which dog will back down first, now that both their hackles are raised, and they're past the sniffing stage?

I think its disturbing how many people believe the "Nothing will happen" over and over.
Perhaps you all are right,I also HOPE nothing happens.

But by shear odds,something,someday IS going to happen.
Just a matter of time.

And situation,which if you look at the situations currently happening in the world,the time is ripe for "something" to happen.

Or do you think all this postioning is just for kicks?

Something has already happened between the Korea's. Ship sinking, Shelling of each-others side. People Dying, pot shots being taken at each-other across the DMZ.

It's been that way since the Armistice was signed back in the 50s.

Disappointed WWIII hasn't broken out yet?

Pffft.



There seems to be an ATS WWIII cheering section that whenever the dreaded over predicted WWIII scenario falls apart or fails to materialize either between Russia and the US, China and the US or Israel and Iran or any other number of potential hot-spots around the globe fail to blow up it's a disappointment. Meanwhile cooler heads have prevailed thus far.

THAT'S a GOOD THING PEOPLE!
