Update

No S. Korean casualties. N. Korean vessel was extensively damaged(word-for-word translation: 50% damaged) and returned to the North(, presumably on its own power.)

My bet: Zero SK casualties (we’d know). Given the tech gap, I’d guess bad news for NK...

They want something (from the South but probably more specifically from USA). It may well be a tantrum. Conveniently two or three days before appeaser Obama arrives.

I think they are using the stick.

Right. Chia Head turned one of his aging navy boats into a Swiss cheese to make this little point. A pathetic loser.

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.

I think we should send U.S. peacekeeping troops to make the Koreans play nice — and make them all Muslim. The rest of our troops will feel safer, and surely the Muzzie GIs won’t mind pointing guns at Buddist “infidels.”

This has all the spontaneity of high mass at Saint Anthony’s —act nutty, then GET CASH.

I feel like I’m watching Kabuki (moves & lines NEVER made up...not once in history).

You’d have the be the STUPIDEST POTUS in history not to see what’s going on here, and come to think of it.....

I am sure Zero is in agony over 'calibrating' their response.:-)

His gut says to apologize to Norks, but that won't play well politically. Got to find something he can live with, which is few and far between, considering this outright provocation. LOL.

Conveniently two or three days before appeaser Obama arrives.

Very conveniently. NK creates an incident "defending" bogus and unrecognized claims to "territorial waters." The O-bot floats in on his magick carpit to "make peace," usually meaning posing for a glorious photo-op while the parties engage in "compromise." As usual in all compromises with evil, that means SK loses something.

The O-bot claims victory as the great peacemaker, NK gets a distraction as cover for its nuke program, and everybody is happy, except of course our lone ally in the picture.

The O-bot should send a thank you note to "The Il One" for making him look good.

Japan take note: Unless you gleefully sop up a lot more worthless US bonds than the Chinese, you are expendable.

We have a willfully destructive chump in the White House.

More or less "all clear" for right now. (1:40 p.m. local)

9 ROK fishing boats had to be evac-ed from the area.

This is the ROK island nearby where the dust-up occured two hours ago:

No need to wake Obozo.

Sweet dreams, imposter!

S. Korean Joint Chief of Staffs said, "A N. Korean patrol boat violated Northern Limit Line at 6.3 miles to the east of Daechung Island, (intruding into S. Korean waters) by 0.7 mile. Our Navy repeatedly sent warning messages, which it ignored and continue to head southward. Our Navy sent a warning message that warning shots will be fired. When it did not relent, they fired warning shots according to rules of engagement. The N. Korea vessel fired directly at our patrol boat, which returned fire according to rules of engagement and repelled the N. Korean vessel. There were no casualties on the S. Korean side, but the N. Korean vessel returned to the North, heavily damaged in billowing smoke.

합참은 이날 "북한 경비정이 서해 대청도 동쪽 6.3마일 지점의 NLL을 0.7마일가량 침범해 우리 해군이 여러차례 경고통신을 했으나 경비정은 이를 무시하고 계속 남하했다"면서 "해군은 북측 경비정에 경고사격을 하겠다는 경고통신까지 했으나 물러나지 않자 교전규칙에 따라 경고사격을 가했다"고 말했다.

이에 북한 경비정은 남측 고속정을 향해 '직접사격'을 가했으며 우리측 고속정은 교전규칙에 의해 '대응사격'을 가해 북측 경비정을 퇴각시켰다고 합참은 설명했다.

합참은 "교전 과정에서 우리 측 사상자는 없었다"고 강조했다.

그러나 북측 함정은 연기가 날 정도로 반파되어 북한으로 되돌아간 것으로 알려졌다.

Nope. All of those colored and numbered islands west and south of the dotted line—including Gangwha (the big, light green one) as well as the little light green one above it, are ROK claimed and occupied territory, all firmly garrisoned with ROK Marines, and or Navy, Army. Obama’s friend Kim Jong il doesnt dare attempt to take those back. They are fighting over the sea boundaries. Correct me if I am wrong, TLR.

Based on this, of course, then, ROK sets the NLL(Northern Line Limit) line to be 7 miles due east of their Daechung Island. And the norks came in by over about 7/10ths of a mile. One can clearly see the NLL line, east of that (dark green) island, separating ROK and DPRK, on the map above.
