Becareful of what you wish for because it might come true.

I'm not so sure what the urgent announcement will be about, but the fact that they aren't answering any questions afterwards means whatever it is, their stance is final. I'm curious as to what they have to say. Guess we'll find out in a few more minutes.

That article is dated Nov. 26th, though.


I'm not sure which news organizations will be covering the announcement, so I'm leaving Al Jazeera playing in the background and have my browser open to Yonhap since they're sure to update that site once China has said its piece.

I wouldn't feel anything because I'd be dead.

Thanks.

Damage assessed at US$4.3 mln from N.K. attack on island, gov't pushes for compensation


SEOUL, Nov. 28 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's artillery attack on a southern border island has caused some 5 billion won (US$4.34 million) in damage according to preliminary assessments, the island's administrative government said Sunday.

...

"If (we are) pushed back from Yeonpyeong and the other four islands, the entire southern half of the Korean Peninsula will also be pushed back," Kim said. "We must defend the five islands with everything we've got. The country has a duty to protect the residents so that they may be able to safely make a living by fishing."




SK seems to be in a tough spot with this one.

I have just one question... how is it possible that the U.S. Command is not considering the odds right now. What do the North Koreans have? Submarines. Plenty of submarines. Around 60+. And the U.S. is sending 1 aircraft carrier along with 4 escort ships into Korean waters (Presumably 4 destroyers, or 3 destroyers & 1 cruiser, or 2 destroyers & 2 cruisers). So my question is... what the U.S. Naval Command really thinking?

If the North Koreans wants to make a war, which seems it's in their best interest, right now the U.S. Command is sent one slightly defended carrier group into the war zone, right in front of the torpedo tubes of countless enemy submarines.

I'm not that good with numbers, but if the NK is sending out just 40% of their subs, the U.S. can say bye-bye to the George Washington as nothing will be able to defend it from that overwhelming submarine force (Destroyers are outnumbered and the onboard helos are also insufficient to protect the CVN against this force if they're going to face with it.).

BINGO! You don't send one task force if you're expecting war to break out. It's a sure sign of 'nothing to see here folks, move along'. When the docks at San Diego empty, time to pack your bug out bag

Not to mention what other ships/subs SK and US has deployed which they are keeping hush hush, that we don't know about.

Makes no sense if they told everyone on MSM everything

the docks in San Diego are pretty empty. the Nimitz and the Reagan are both at sea. (doing exercises) the Washington is in the Yellow sea. thats 3 of the 5 west coast carriers at sea right now. all that is missing is the Stennis (home port NB Kitsap, Washington) at and the Carl Vinson. (home port NAS North Island San Diego)

The real question is where are the 6 carriers from the east coast? I know the Truman and the Lincoln was/is in the Persian Gulf. one was sent to relieve the other. that leaves 4 more including the newest. the George H W Bush which should have ended its shakedown cruise earlier this year.

Oh, I'm aware of that...but the Washington and her contingent outnumber and outdisplace the ROK vessels in the area.

On a side note, any military people here ever hear of FAE warheads for 120mm MLRS systems? They claim they were used, and I'm highly skeptical...pics in link.
