South Korean troops shoot at civilian airliner by mistake


www.msnbc.msn.com

South Korean troops fired at a commercial aircraft flying near the tense sea border with North Korea, misidentifying it as one of the communist North's jet fighters, but no damage occurred, local news media reported on Saturday.

The Yonhap news agency, quoting a military source, said two marine corps soldiers guarding the waters off the South's western city of Incheon, fired their K-2 rifles for about 10 minutes at dawn Friday. The plane was later identified as an Asiana Airlines flight making its descent to Seoul airport.

Someone please tell me that these guys were not smoking something illegal. Did they honestly believe that a K-2 being fired would actually bring down a fighter jet, why didn't they radio in to their co, why weren't S.K. jets scrambled, so many why's , so few rational thinking people these days its almost certain that some will pull that button of death as its only a matter of time.

Wow this tells you how tense things are on that border. I would rather not see any more Korea mortar fights. Those things can escalate quickly, lucky last time it didn't

Firing with rifles and out of range by 500-600 meters? They mustve been bored. And something else seems odd about this story...how do u fire at a moving plane for 10 minutes?

Sheesh, Even Koreans can't tell each other apart.

If I was South Korean though I'd pretty much be on edge constantly with that nutcase threatening war everytime it rains.
