North Korea blocks South workers from Kaesong zone


www.bbc.co.uk

North Korea is blocking the entry of South Korean workers into a joint industrial zone, in a move seen as further escalating tensions.

Workers were being allowed to leave the Kaesong complex but not cross into it from the South, Seoul's Unification Ministry confirmed.

The Kaesong zone, which is a money-maker for the North, is seen as a key barometer of inter-Korean relations.

The move came as the US called North Korea's recent rhetoric unacceptable.

The joint industrial park is home to more than 100 factories. More than 50,000 North Koreans work there, as well as several hundred

Well, In a move that was half expected, the North Koreans have finally shut down the border industrial complex at Kaesong.

So, what next? Is this another in a long line of tactics to get the US to believe NK is stronger than it really is, or is the time for talking over?

My guess is that NK needs a damn good butt kicking, but not of the nuclear kind.

It was admitted on the news this morning in Australia that this loon has a nuke but not one big enough to fit on the end of a firework, but it does not stop him from putting one in a truck and sending it on it's merry way to US or SK?

However, the next few hours or days will be interesting.

What next?

And the situation continues to increase day by day. Im suprised NKorea did this. Dosent this result in them losing a good deal of cash from the area?

SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea's defense ministry said Wednesday, April 3, it had contingency plans, including possible military action, to ensure the safety of its citizens working in a joint industrial zone in North Korea.


Looks like SKorea wants their people to be safe if they stay up there.


North Korea blocked South Korean access to the Seoul-funded Kaesong joint industrial zone on Wednesday, but said it would allow the 861 South Koreans currently there to leave.



As of 2:00 pm (0500 GMT) only 9 had crossed back over the border into South Korea



The South's Unification Ministry said many had voluntarily opted to stay in Kaesong to ensure the smooth operation of their companies there. - Rappler.com

Kind of the opposite, they have a nuke, but not one small enough to fit on the end of a firework, which is why they would need a whole truck to transport it. I don't think they would get it all the way to America, but maybe SK. Just imagine them trying to drive a truck through the DMZ though...

Pretty sure SK responded by stating that they are considering a military response (or then they said that in return for NK turning all their Nuclear plants back on, not sure).

They would actually try to use some strategy in delivering it.

Send it to some third world country labeled as industrial equipment. It would be received by a couple government operatives in that third world country who own a building there to carry out the operation.

Once they got it, they would transfer it to a second container that belongs to a different shipping company that was last used to deliver agricultural goods to that third world country.

They would send it to some fictional company in the target country, with the contents labeled as “produce” and the cargo handling system would get it there without them lifting another finger.

The target country would see the incoming container as just another shipment of produce to a domestic food processing company.

Hmm this does make things a little more interesting...

Last time they did this was in 2009, and a few months later a South Korean ship got sunk and rockets launched at a South Korean island.

Do they have the balls to test SK again?

I really don't think Un realizes the array of forces gathering against him. What kind of special breed of fool... he must be in such a huge bubble. It make me wonder if he has tasted the edge of insanity and actually enjoys it. One never knows.

At first I thought he was just flexing his muscle for his people to see that he is a strong leader. Give those people some pride as they toil and labor with grumbling stomachs.

It is starting to get beyond the rattling of the sabre's and now NK has shown a blade.

Little Un needs to come down off his high and go to sleep before there is blood on both sabre blades.

Also, just to add a little to the truck bombs. I don't think it will happen because I am fairly positive that the US has planes and even satellites that could detect such activities. Of course our government has failed before so who can tell?

The talking heads on this past Sundays news programs said that basically Un was throwing about a bunch of empty rhetoric in his threats because the joint factory was still in operation. Now that it is ended I'm not so sure they're idle threats anymore and he will make a move to prove to the people of NK that he's a serious leader. I don't think this situation is going to end well for NK, SK, USA, China and Russia.

While that would work in a movie, not so much in real life. For obvious I will not go into what precautions are taken against such things. However, the logistics of transporting a large prmitive nuclear device that would require a team of technicians and lots of specialized equipment would be daunting for any nation and even worse for a nation under as much scrutiny as NK. Add to that losing direct control of the one device that you can use as a deterant to save your regime in a conflcit would be unacceptable to NK leadership.

They wouldn't need to, they have plenty of bombers that could do the job.

Team of technicians?

Once the device is fully constructed then there is no technical knowledge needed. It’s just a bulky device you move from point A to point B without dropping.
For an implosion bomb, you just have the sphere, with the timing/triggering electronics in a box on the side, and a battery to run the timer and charge the firing system to initiate the detonation.

Just tell the idiots to not bug any of the wires, and to just enter delay and hit go.
You can even wrap it in a hard metal shell to keep the idiots from screwing with the wiring if you are worried that they can’t follow direct orders.

For a gun type bomb, you don’t even need electronics. If it is a suicide mission, you can just use a small arms primer with a firing pin to initiate the device. If firing pin is too fancy you can have a bit of cannon fuse sticking out the end that you can light to set off the propellant to detonate the device.

Or if the person delivering it is an idiot that you want dead, just have a long piece of cannon fuse and tell him it’s a normal bomb. Tell him to light the fuse and run away. He can run as fast as he wants to but he won’t make it far enough to save himself.

I'd be more concerned about them driving it under the DMZ.
