SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said the South will pay "an expensive price" for firing at Pyongyang's retreating patrol boat on Tuesday, keeping up its saber rattling two days after a naval gunfight raised tension between the rivals.

The threat, published in the North's official Rodong Sinmun daily, comes amid reports officials from the two Koreas met recently to discuss a possible summit between their leaders but failed to reach agreement.

The navies from the two sides exchanged gunfire on Tuesday for the first time in seven years, reminding financial market players of the security threat the North poses to the region, which accounts for one-sixth of the global economy.


Just like little kimmy, he send his warship in S.K. waters, there is a firefight and his ship loses badly.

How long before the threats of nuclear war....again.

Hahaha I agree. How long before he starts the whole nuclear threat game again. If he wants a war so bad just get it over with already or shut up and mind your own business
I bet all he does is sends them a bill lol

North Korea will do nothing. They cannot afford a war as it takes food for the soldiers to move them which they do not have plenty of. Someday when they just might get enough nerve to do something they know that they will not win. China most likely will not go to their defense so they will have to do it alone. Sure many people will get killed but the North will be no more. Then reunification can get started in ernest.

I was really surprised to learn this wasn't the first engagement w/casualties, it's more like the third.

Anyone here who laughs at this sort of turnout, and then adds their little "factual predictions" or "baseless pontifications" on "what they think", is surly retarded.

And by retarded...I mean socially, chemically and politically.

I would also assume them to be under the age of 25, lost in an IPOD, and sniffing the MSM like a good slave-bee.

Really people...grow up and learn that this is not an episode of jackass.

South Korea will probably "pay" by giving the North some sort of food subsidy as usual, to get them through the winter.

Well put. Whats going on between NK and SK is no laughing matter. NK has the possibility to launch nuclear weapons. You don't need a standing army of well fed well equipped well trained soldiers to wreak havoc on a country like SK. NK may not be able to sustain or even launch any type of full scale military attack. But that does not mean they are not dangerous nor pose very little threat to the world. With everything that's going on in the world right now economically, this could very well deal a death blow to the greater global economy.

North Korea is playing the same game as Venezuela is. Stir up a threat, enrage your citizens, making them forget their own situation and stay in power. That's it plain and simple. South Korea would tear North Korea a new one if they ever decided to do so. The main reason that they don't is the huge numbers of civilian casualties that would result from this. The majority of South Koreans support reunification with the North, but that's the last thing that those in power in the North want. They would end up in a ditch with a bullet in their heads.
