N.Korea on alert ahead of S.Korea drill
North Korea has boosted the readiness of its military forces on the coast nearest to a planned live-fire drill by South Korea, the South's Yonhap news agency said on Sunday, quoting a government source.
"The North Korean artillery unit along the Yellow Sea has raised its preparedness level," the anonymous source was quoted as saying.
"Some fighter jets that had been inside the air force hangar have come out to the ground," Yonhap quoted the source as saying, without confirming whether weapons had been moved closer to the south.

might have known the u.s would be involved somehow...everytime something kicks off the us are floating about!
kim jong il is a crazy mofo....i wouldnt put it past him to use nukes.
even though russia has requested talks looks as thou both the north and the south are digging their heels, with the US whispering in the souths ear..".we have your back dood just do it...go on do it."...pffffft!

They do these exercises all the time. They're nothing new they've been doing them once a month for the past 50 years... So if America backs down and gives in to the N Koreans, we start tp look weak. We don't need this especially since the whole world knows that North Korea is a bunch of hot air. How's that going to make us look in the international scene?? Like a bunch of wimps.
PS NK got no nukes

Ya but NK has not foreign currency. They basically spent it all on outdated crap weapons. Im not saying they wont be a threat because their 1mill + military is still very powerful but in conjunction with buying weapons such as EMP missiles is out of the question for NK unless China or Russia will front them the missiles.
