Anyone posting from Korea that can confirm some of this? Seems to be a rich environment for rumors.
I know we have Freepers there.
If true I think this is the first time its gone this far.
I am not posting from Korea, but I have information. Two friends just returned two weeks ago, and they said that tensions were very high. Also, they were scheduled to hear a Toby Keith concert (sponsored thru the USO) that was to be held in an open air stadium near the DMZ. That was canceled and they were forced to hear it at a much smaller venue on an American base. They told us that tensions were incredibly high, and that the South Koreans biggest fear was that the Americans would bug out..Our friends son was stationed there, so it was a great concern for him.
I posted this a moment ago: “Just not in the direction that you want. Throughout history, diplomacy has never solved conflict, maybe just slowed it down. Prayerfully, I hope that they pull back from the brink, but I take comfort to know that the G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob has control, and not Kim Jong Il. Whatever happens, we are in control of how we deal with these situations. I am an old believer that everything happens for a reason, whether good or bad. The balance is that we can see what those results are, over time...”
Chinaboy, what are you hearing?
Might not be the best thing for them to comment on it. Loose lips sink ships.
I’m currently sitting at Camp Casey where its 15:22 and a cloudy 60 degrees. Overall on the US side it is pretty quiet, it is 4 day weekend for the 2ID. However, I have my windows open and the jet noise reminds of the Khost Bowl in Afghanistan a year or so ago, pretty much nonstop. Night before last, I was talking on the phone to someone at Kunsan AFB, (down south), the ROKAF was making so much noise, it was hard to talk.
