S. Korea, U.S. 'high-intensity' drills have begun.


english.yonhapnews.co.kr

SEOUL, Nov. 29 (Yonhap) -- A flotilla of South Korean and U.S. warships fired artillery and their aircraft intercepted mock enemy planes in the Yellow Sea on Monday, the second day of what military officials labelled "high-intensity" joint naval drills aimed at deterring North Korean provocations.

I wonder how the NK moral is standing up as they watch US/SK fire at mock-enemy planes flying around their section of waters..

I do recall an article, yesterday, stating SK fired, by mistake, into the DMZ. It seems US/SK are starting to ignite something...

However this is the 2nd time SK stated "if you attack us again, we will retatiliate"... Soeul is starting to sound like Pyongyang with their bold, unfullfilled, statements...

I'm confused by all this, for the past couple of days I have been reading that these drills are defensive in nature and will not include any live firing of weapons. Who is telling the truth here if their is any truth to be had??

SK- oh, that was harsh....

It's the same old thing over and over. NK gets pissy because nobody is paying any attention to them, so they blow up something.

Then in retaliation, SK tells them "Don't you do that again or I'm going to spank you!"

NK never gets "spanked" so they know there are no consequences for their actions. It's an unending cycle.

Edit to add; Slayer, your above post is very funny. Exactly what I was talking about. LOL

I thought this was delayed due to inclement weather? At least that was the excuse given for not holding any drills on Yeonpyeong island...

They are using drills as a cover to place weapons and assets into position in case there is another provocative move by the North. This is the reason military exercises are considered an aggressive move.

The chess pieces are being reorganized on the board just in case. .

The truth is that it's all computerized. There is no live-fire.

Korea is host to the largest computerized war-game simulations - the ships and units are often real, but the munitions fired, and even some of the threats are all simulated - much like in a combat simulator like Dangerous Waters, LOMAC, etc.

For training purposes - real 'targets' are used to train radar/sonar/etc watch standers how to use the equipment and ID targets.

The exercise has been scheduled and known about for several months. Most of them are annual exercises done about the same time every year.

It is no mistake or coincidence that North Korea's attack on South Korea came only a few days before this exercise was scheduled - it was intended as an attempt to paint South Korea and the U.S. as antagonists to the ill-informed and simple of mind.

Yes, they do have these drills annually. Although, moments before Obama publically said "We will defend our SK allies" the ACC was on it's way to the Yellow Sea.

I hear the same thing.... but, I believe this was a public stall.
SK and NK are both positioning weapons on their borders, we saw from a few sources posted about.

Seems to be the m.o. of TPTB. Drills,drills & more drills. Then the drill goes live and its the real deal. I wouldn't doubt an imminent attack on NK. The perpetual state of war must be done so the world economies don't collapse & the banking cartel finances both sides to keep it going.

I agree, if not for China NK would be toast. Once they give in I would have to say things will be well under way regardless of what happens to the south.

US should tell China, although I know they WANT a buffer zone, that we will "take care" of NK for you if you cut our debt 25%...

Although, millions of lives would be lost. It's gonna happen eventually.....
I believe we will see the DMZ dismantled and bombed in our lifetime.

There are no "TPTB" - it's simply the way human civilization is. Everything is constantly changing and toes are constantly being stepped on. As we begin to withdraw from Iraq and try to wrap things up in Afghanistan, the world is starting to allow its limited attention span to drift to other areas of conflict. Suddenly, a 50+ year stand-off has threatened to re-ignite and everyone is backing their horse.

One of the interesting things that may come out of this is a re-evaluation of American industrial practices. Right now, a lot of companies have listened to brain-dead accountants that tell them to go for the cheapest bid as a primary factor - this generally goes to a Chinese company. Many industries have already black-listed Chinese companies due to poor quality control standards and parts that fail in testing and on the line - particularly automotive companies and anything where performance of parts is a safety issue. However, many of your every-day items are made by Chinese companies almost every day.

Companies now have to stop and re-evaluate how they do business. Many get 80+% of their volume from Chinese suppliers and would simply be unable to meet demand if relations with China go tits-up. Even friendly nations, like Taiwan, can fall victim to the changing political/military situation in the Asian pacific.

We will likely see a number of companies start looking for European, Australian, and domestic (U.S.) suppliers and begin distributing volume so that a conflict between China and the U.S. would not lead to stalled production lines - other suppliers could be tasked with picking up the slack and make for a much smoother transition.

So true, the US has fed the Chinese tiger for far too long and are responsible for what it is today, we have no one to blame but ourselves for this and Bill Clinton and gang for giving away our missile technology in the mid nineties for cheap political donations.

Yes its human nature. TPTB are the CFR, Trilateral Comm., NATO etc. Next the cap & trade situation will create a world government taxing everyone based on global warming. Yes its economic. War is a global economic phenomenon. One hand washes the other.
