60 to 70 houses on fire?!
I can’t believe that is true, but if so I would say war is here.

There is no greater act of war then sinking a ship, South Korea didnt seem to care too much about that.

Depends on the facts. If there are numerous casualties, how can it not? On the other hand, seems like nothing happened after the sub was sank, so who knows.

Bah! The Bozo doesn’t care. Kim Jong Ill (or now the kid, whatever his name) is his soulmate (no lie). I certainly hope S. Korea can handle this one alone.

Time to launch them. Just 1 is all we would need.

I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize ahead of time to the people of Korea because if all that's needed is strong leadership from Washington to stop this before it escalates then they're out of luck.

Counter-battery fire back should be a minimum response.

Obama’s 1:00am phone call. I bet it happened on the first night he went to bed early. No word from the White House. So, you know he’s waiting for someone else to condemn the attack first.

He will need a minimum of a few days to mull things over and get a group of advisors to take some polls and then we will hear from him.
