If that’s the case, methinks Lil Kim will get a visit from China REAL SOON. China is not yet ready for a shitstorm on the Korean Peninsula, which would spread liked greased lightning.

When Ivan warned things would get out of hand earlier today, I thought this felt like something more than the normal NORK tantrum.

A massive infusion of Food, Fuel and Funds, just like the Clanton Gang and Gov. Bill Richardson pumped into NorK’s economy. True to form, the NorK’s promptly sold the food on the open market, filled up their elite party members bank accounts and broke up the nuclear fuel rods that came in the reactor impeached former POTUS Billy Clanton gave them as a bribe to create a nuclear dirty bomb. The best thing everyone can do is ignore them.

So now what??

They are full of bluster, while at the same time keeping the industrial zone in Kaesong open. So despite what the North Koreans say about war, they obviously don't want it to actually interfere with one of their only sources of hard currency.

It does seem like they've run out of threats. Maybe they'll actually cause some real trouble this time around. If so, I sure hope South Korea responds decisively.

And a way to extort more aid from the civilized world including the US. The extortion scheme worked before. He probably thinks it will work again. He might be right.

I’m hoping they invade us at the Gulf of Mexico, somewhere around Corpus Christi. Easiest ammo run ever for all of us. And might even get one of those cool hats and camo pajammers they sport.

I wonder if the little creep might just give it a try. He might even be smarter than people give him credit for.

He knows we have a total jackass as president. One who probably would make excuses for abandoning South Korea if the rubber really meets the road.

I have read that N. Korea has a very powerful military with huge artillery stockpiles and guns which can reach most of South Korea’s most heavily populated areas.

I know if I was a North Korean and wanted a war with South Korea, now is the time I would choose.

The South Korean’s have been taunting Lil’ Kim with advertised Military plans to strike the NorK’s. This is new, in the past the South K’s laid low and kept quiet, But their new Female leader is haviving none of it, and has entered the fray.

In earlier and saner times, I would say that Mr Un had a death wish.....but, in the time of Zero, right now, I think that maybe mr Un may be trolling for dollars.

His first "offer" was: I'm going to kill you all with a NORK nuke.

...DefSec Hagle(giggle)makes a counter offer.."we will kill you back"...

...maybe mr Un will make a counter-counter offer of: well...we may not kill you if you will send me 100 billion dollars....

...and the hell of it is that Pres Zero just may take that offer & let Mr un live to start another round of offers sometime in the future.

It was said today that if hostilities broke out, North Korea could hit Seoul with 500 rockets and artillery shells within the first hour wiping it out. Seoul is just 35 miles from the DMZ or 38th Parallel.

A real president should have dropped a bomb on the north ages ago instead of playing footsie with the little tyrant and his old man. Heck if we had fought the Korean War to win, we wouldn’t be in this predicament. Since WWII we have entered conflicts only to fool around. There hasn’t been a decisive victory. Too many dang politicians meddling instead of letting the military do its job.

Doesn't that make the supposition that the SORKs just sit there and let it happen? Don't they (we) have munitions that basically reverse engineer the artillery/rocket trajectory and lay a huge barrage back on the source?

Excuse me, but how many "inter-Korean" issues are there, approximately? They've been in a "state of war" since, what, 1950?

Unfortunately, this ass has the ability to wipe out possibly millions of people.

An attack on South Korea ought to be suicide for these fruitcakes, but they're not necessarily dealing with a full deck.

It doesn't make for a terribly pretty situation.

These are conventional artillery shells and rockets. I don’t see us having any technology to stop anything incoming like that. We would just have to pinpoint their mobile locations and destroy them with guided bombs. Now we do have Patriot Anti-Missile interceptor battery systems set up along the DMZ in case they launched missiles like Scuds (what Saddam used on Israel) at Seoul. They will be useful.

yes they do, and they know where a good portion of it is positioned. However the north will get the first shots in. They have A LOT of artillery, all within range of the 20 million people in Seoul.

500 rockets and/or artillery shells would ruin the day for some folks but it wouldn’t come close to wiping out an enormous city like Seoul.
