Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- South Korea has reportedly deployed more long-range artillery and rocket launchers on Yeonpyeong Island, a border island struck by a North Korean shelling last week, according to military officials.
The officials' remarks were reported Monday by the Yonhap news agency in Seoul.
The report comes as joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States continue in the Yellow Sea and tensions with North Korea continue to brew.

So I have been thinking... Is the military drills currently being held by the U.S. and South Korea really just a pretense to position assets for a preemptive strike on NK. If you think about it, the best chance South Korea has to come out of any altercation with the North relatively in tact is to stage a massive preemptive strike on the North taking out the majority of their offensive capability. I look for this to go like the Iraq war. We will have a special press conference by the president stating that "At approximately such and such a time our military has started operations inside North Korea." Cut to scenes of shock and awe inside Pyongyang.
Georgy Toloraya said. “Of course, nobody is really wishing to have a full-scale world conflict – but what if the [South] Korean ship or the American ship hit an underwater mine, and the South Korean-American side decide that this is a North Korean attack?”

In military terms, facing off against NK would be what the USMC and other branches refer to as FUBAR or even SNAFU. I'm sure many are familiar with the acronym, but for those than aren't this simply means that the situation is ridiculous and extremely unfavorable with some colorful language interjected.
Trying to co-ordinate an attack against NK to hit all their artillery at once is... well practically impossible. It won't happen.
