If the south shoots back at sea, the NORKs are sunk.
They amaze me.
The divided Koreas clashed Tuesday morning off their west coast where skirmishes turned deadly in 1999 and 2002, a South Korean defense official said.
“No South Korean casualties were immediately reported,” the official said, adding a North Korean patrol ship prompted the South Korean Navy to fire warning shots after crossing the border.
“The North Koreans then fired back,” he said.
North Korea disputes the Northern Limit Line, which was drawn by a U.S. general at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War that ended in a truce.
There has been a clash between ships from the rival navies of North and South Korea, according to the South Korean news agency Yonhap.
The agency says that a South Korean warship fired a shot at a North Korean vessel which crossed the demarcation line off their western coast.
The North Korean ship returned fire, but no injuries are reported so far.
The two navies have engaged in deadly exchanges twice along their western sea border in the past decade.
