SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea bombarded a South Korean island near their disputed western border Tuesday, setting buildings ablaze and killing at least two marines and injuring 16 others after warning the South to halt military drills in the area, South Korean officials said.
South Korea said it returned fire and scrambled fighter jets in response, and said the "inhumane" attack on civilian areas violated the 1953 armistice halting the Korean War. The two sides technically remain at war because a peace treaty was never negotiated.

Why does this not make me warm and fuzzy....
Whoof. Not exactly what our powder-keg world needs, right now.
Any idea how common this sort of thing is? Is this rare, or are there skirmishes like this often?
Bush did it.
I say 2 marines dead equals N korea nuked..pop em, screw China..
I agree...although they are not far from the ‘stone age’ culturally...I say we bomb them all the way back to the ‘stone age’.
I guess that is terrible of me...but if N. Korea would just mind its own business, live and let live...I would not think such thoughts.
Even as we speak, Obama is standing in front of a full-length mirror...practicing his bowing.
Time to go Roman on them. “for every soldier that is killed we will destroy one city in return” I see two NK cities as potential smoking holes...
Barry’s ticked—somebody woke him up at 3 am for this.
Marines? Like U.S. Marines?
If this is so, I don’t see how this isn’t an act of war.
QUICK! send Hillary!!!!!
Sad how being born in North Korea sets you back 100 years....
No. This sh*t happens when we project weakness.
Never happen under Reagan or Bush...
just another one of the downsides of electing a democrat.
I’m sure Obama is writing his apology speech right now...
Obama’s on top of this. He’s on the phone right now telling the ROK President not to criticize Obama on TV.
It’s 3AM, Hussein.
They were ROK(Republis of Korea)Marines, not US Marines.
Doesn’t say whether it was ROK Marines or US Marines.
In any event, the Norks kill a few US military from time to time and have ever since 1953.
We do nothing.
I think you’re forgetting who is in the White house...
