Posted on 04/05/2013 7:48:32 AM PDT by oxcart
MOSCOW North Korea has advised foreign diplomats to consider evacuating their embassies there, in light of increasing tensions in the area, Russian and British diplomats said Friday. Russias foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, told reporters traveling with him in Uzbekistan Friday afternoon that Moscow was seeking more details about the North Korean statement before making a decision about whether to evacuate. Lavrov said Russia was treating the statement from Pyongyang as a suggestion and not an order.

There are foreign embassies in Pyongyang? UGH!
That’s one heck of a torturous diplomatic post...
South Korean protesters hold signs during a press conference denouncing the UN's new sanction against North Korea, and the annual joint military exercises near the U.S. Embassy in Seoul.
Do they still want us to leave???
I wonder if Obambi has been notified of this situation . . . I can just see the messenger trying to find the idiot out of some golf course or somewhere on his knees on a prayer rug.
the embassies will be OK - just don’t visit the missile sites or military installations.
Did all this start to blow up after Dennis Rodman’s visit ? Did he bring a message from Obama ?
very possible, IMO
LOL! Good to see SK has useful idiots as well.
Maybe it was something Dennis said.
In all seriousness, the one thing I haven’t seen is announcement of the mobilization of the North’s reserves (est. 8,000,000).
That’s the classic sign a nation has decided to go to war. They’re “in it to win it” at that point.
That’s the bona fide alarm bell - should that go off, then there’s serious trouble ahead.
The problem was he only sent Rodman.
He needs to send Rodman AND Madonna....
“This is what I don’t understand:”
Funny how their letters read out-No! War. I don’t think it means what they think it does.
“Did all this start to blow up after Dennis Rodmans visit ? Did he bring a message from Obama ?”
Good question. Very good question.
You are all cowards!
You show missles.
You do nothing!
The WHOLE world is laughing at you.
You are losing FACE!
Perhaps. We know Obummer can’t shoot hoop, he can’t play golf either. Can he play poker? I doubt it. This may be the biggest bluff of all time and we have an inept child at the helm.
“Maybe it was something Dennis said.”
Word on the street is that Kim Jong-Un was offended because Rodman was so TALL!
(FULL DISCLOSURE: I am allow to make this height-ist statement because I, too, am “vertically challenged”)...
It seems that way.
Kim and his rabid, bellicose media and "embassy evacuations" best be ignored, all the while we maintain our satellite intel, SIGINT, ELINT, HUMINT, OSINT and other forms of intelligence to watch every North Korean peninsular move, but show a stone face ourselves and publicly say very, very little.
This recent whiny State Dept. drivel via press conference of "But, but, but, North Korea, if you BEHAVE, you can become a member of the world community"!. DAMMIT THIS PLEA DOES NOT RESONATE WITH KIM JONG UN AND THEIR ENTIRE LEADERSHIP, THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT IT AND HAVE NO INTEREST IN COMING OUT OF INTERNATIONAL ISOLATION AS A HERMETICALLY SEALED HERMIT KINGDOM, SO JUST DROP THE PLEADING AND WHINING, FOGGY BOTTOM FAGGOTS DEVOID OF REAL WORLD ASIA-PACIFIC STREET SMARTS.
Bad situation for the South. While the norks are enemies, and a real danger to them, and they would need our help if they wre invaded, on the other if the norks think someone is poking them with a stick, and do attack, the South will get the initial brunt of it, even if we are there to help. I don’t know what their feelings would be now..
Mobilization is what I look for. It means the leadership is committed to war. Either they’re about to go on the offensive, or they believe they’re under threat of an imminent attack or invasion.
If Tubby announces mobilization of the reserves and orders them to report for duty, trouble’s coming.
It could well be a big bluff, and so far, he’s playing it to the hilt - better than his father did, and much more like his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, who REALLY knew how to play geopolitical poker.
This latest round could also be nothing more that North Korea’s peculiar diplomatese dialect.
When they say, “We will destroy you puppet South regime and Yankee dog lackey of the imperialist classes!” what they’re really saying is, “Dude....I haven’t eaten in a couple of days, and I’m low on fundage; could you spot me for a couple of burritos?”
The Norkies daily bread and butter is ACTIN NUTZ. The torch was passed, and Junior has to make his bones —sssscary Embasy warrrrrnings are a major part of this act.
NOTHING is going to happen —at most some limited attack on some ship, or 2 or 3 cross-border shells, and if even that it would simply be cuz basketBum painted himself into a corner and finally had to actually DO SOMETHING.
GOTS TA GET PAIIIIIID....!!!!

If they make good and drop one a-bomb on ANY us target—all bets are off. The people will demand a nuclear reply—and a massive one. If Obama fails, a mob of angry citizens and soldiers will pull him from the White House and string him up. He will have no choice put to unload a Boomer sub’s rockers on the North— North Korea will cease to exist — Maybe China or the South will take over what is left.
Half the people in this country would be in the streets protesting against any kind of response. Why? Because it’s our fault that we got nuked. If we’d just bring all our troops home from everywhere and stop giving money to other nations, we’d all get along wonderfully.
Well, actually we do need to stop giving money away that we don’t have.
