North Korea Warns of Nuclear Response to Naval Exercises
Business Week ^ | 07/23/2010 | Business Week

Posted on 07/23/2010 6:22:45 PM PDT by The Magical Mischief Tour

North Korea said it would counter U.S. and South Korean joint naval exercises with “nuclear deterrence” after the Obama administration said the government in Pyongyang shouldn’t take any provocative steps.

North Korea will “legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises to be staged by the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces,” the National Defense Commission said, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

Stop sending them food and medicine. Their nuclear program would be gone within 6 months.

I appreciate that you were being funny, but keep in mind that we have thousands of sons and daughters in that fleet. I would prefer that no one do any nuking this weekend.

It sounds to me like the regime in NK is falling apart. But I’m more worried about how our commander in chief will react.

I’m Vice President of my Desk, and I trade quotes from Tombstone, Full Metal Jacket and the Godfather and others, on a daily basis with a co-worker who’s of like mind.

I came back from the deli on the fist floor the other day with a decent drunk Val Kilmer impression- ‘I’ve got two bananas, one for each of you’.

I guess I’m just crazy, but in my book any nation which threatens to nuke us should receive a nuke within 24 hours. Don’t tread on me.

Doc Holiday has to be a classic American character.

I wonder how much of his legend is true?

“He is speaking in Latin. Now I really hate him.”

True, but what country are you talking about? If it’s North Korea, I doubt they would last very long. I don’t see the US jumping into a war with NK right now either.

Amateur history geek here. It was less off the mark than Hollywood usually is, but it was a bit overly sympathetic to the Earps. In fact- there weren’t really such clear-cut good and bad guys.

Fred the Sheriff was in fact shot by Curly Bill, but lived long enough to testify in Bill’s behalf at the trial. Fred wasn’t that old, either.

Ike Clanton’s great great grandson lives in Tombstone last I heard, and is something of a celebrity there. Not sure, but I don’t think that Holliday was quite so well educated, either.

Lots of other details are historically wrong, but the essential framework of the story isn’t too far off. It got me to go read up on it, anyway. :-)

One thing I am sure of in that movie - the roa to riches wasn’t mining, it was Selling to miners.

Selling them anything.

The local saloon owner made a good deal of money too - but probably didn’t live very long to enjoy it!

Not in the least. Kim Jong Il's stock in trade however, seems to be over-the-top bellicose rhetoric.

Unprovoked nuclear attack would mark him as a loose cannon that needs to be immediately dealt with, even to his friends in the neighborhood.

From what I have read, Holliday was actually an East Coast Dr. before he developed consumtion (tuberculosis), and moved to the desert for the dry climate...

But, that is just what I recall.

If true, his speaking Latin makes perfect sense.

Also, when he dies, he is recieving last rights from a catholic priest - and if he were an Educated catholic of the time, Latin would be required.

Ete, misse est.

There was a thing on history about the saloon owners mine the dust that fell through the floor boards.

Also, the saloon drove the invention of the beer fridge - it seems it sold beer like crazy.

He was a dentist. There were serious physicians, and then there were other grades of medical practitioners in those days. Not sure how much Latin they would have had to learn.

Maybe a specialist in period medicine could chime in.

I had the same thought, but.............we shouldn’t back down from them. Hopefully our fleet has the permission to do whatever it takes to defend themselves and us. If they have to wait for the idiot in Washington to decide, it could take a few weeks.

Not to worry. The Fleet does not need permission to defend themselves, and believe me, they are well prepared and thoroughly armed to exactly that. If anyone in NoKo was foolish enough to shoot at one of our ships, it would be the last warshot to ever originate from that spot on the globe ever again.

Stout hearts.

I did not know he was a dentist.

Still, Catholic Mass was still in latin, when I was a kid...

And latin was required at Catholic schools beginning in Kindergarten.
