South Korea will launch a pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang if the antagonist to its north moves to test a nuclear weapon. Seoul said a first strike would be preferable to North Korea getting an atomic weapon, even if it risked open war.

Anyone know if leaves are cancelled in SK?
Just how "defcon" serious DO the generals take this stuff?
( And whos running the show? hawks? doves ?or something way in the background that is pulling all the strings?)
I see one after another of these threats from disparate sources......and because of the holliday, the effect of any event will be painted large on the backdrop of Easter......by the propaganda peddlers on both sides....
(or should i say ALL sides?) a bonus emotional and perhaps tactical opportunity.....
Just sayin....edit on 29-3-2013 by stirling because: (no reason given)

For so long I've waited to answer these type of threads. Let's completely clear this up. I live in Britain and the powers here are on the same massive ego trip. Just sit down and use your sound reasoning. Why? Why would ANYONE want to invade USA or Britain? Both countries are virtually useless. Gone are the old reasons of taking a country just for the land What other reasons could be offered? Political? Now that the Russians have bitten the comsumer apple, do you think they're planning to expand communism. No chance! communism does'nt really exist any more and that includes China as well. If these supposed "enemies" wanted either countries they could just buy them. The biggest question you should be asking your governments(USA and Britain) why are they spending billions on advanced weaponry? Who do they think they are fighting? Look at the bottom line, drones, stealth, very,very expensive machinery (not to mention lives lost) for who? The enemies they are fighting now are hardly out of caves. Something like, sledge hammer to crack a hazelnut comes to mind. Seriously sit and think why would Russia, China or even North Korea want USA or Britain they're both virtually F*****. This is not personally again'st the OP just about every person that keeps bleating on about anyone wanting to take over their country.
