Let’s see what NK does... this may be their out...
W7VOA ROK Defense Ministry, speaking to VOA just now, says it’ll not confirm exercise until it concludes. #Koreas
now the real waiting begins . . . Mr. Kim???
So, how many people does SK need to kill in order to even it up with NK? There’s the torpedoed boat, a few shots fired across a border(?) and then the recent shellings that killed a few. How many others, and what’s the total death toll?
It’s 3 AM.
I as just getting ready to go to bed. You’d think they could be more considerate of those of us on the east coast when they start this stuff.
Yup, looks like the crisis was diffused this time around. Dunno how much food aid and fuel oil we gave up, but for now it appears a deal has been struck.
South Korea will go through with a short live fire drill to safe face and we will all go back to waiting for the next time North Korea acts out.
It’s a previously “announced” live fire exercise on the part of South Korea - as delayed by heavy fog.
LOL, so true dude.......
South Korea just said it will not allow or accept those agreements.
I certainly hope that SK won’t respond like they did last time, it just encourages more.
I know what it is, I’m wondering how many people they have to hit to tie up the score.
Maybe Scott Ritter can get a new gig?
Well, since NK talks big about killing all of So. Koreans with their nuclear threat, I would guess around 200 million on both sides would even it up!
But - not to worry, the UN has this situation well under their control! With the strength of the UN, no harm will come to even the worms migrating across the DMZ!
And sending a governor from New Mexico to talk to N. Korea.....what the hell is that about.....Oh I forgot he was an ambassador to the UN under Clinton.
So is Clinton still president? Who is in charge of diplomacy with a rogue nation, Hillary, Obama or slick Willy?

As is all too typical, Hillary is nowhere in sight - not even a “quote” to her media protectors
Don’t they know it’s the ‘age of Obama’?? Oceans will heal and all that ..

AP: #ROK says fighter jets launched to deter #DPRK attacks.
wonderful! Let’s see how the NK responds, then nuke them all!
You might just get your wish tonight. And won’t that be a wonderful thing.
If full scale war is triggered by North Korea against the South, Red China will be behind it.
Wonderful News! Let the SoK wipe the NoK off the map
You talk pretty big for someone who’ll be on the other side of the planet from the shooting.
I’m glad the ROK isn’t taking any guff from the Juche fruits, but if this turns into a shooting war it will be a long, long, bloody nightmare.
or maybe a short bloody one...

If the NORKS don’t attack, they will lose face. They will be shown to be paper tigers! The son will be shown to be a weakling.
At least 50, so far this year. Hundreds, given the past.
The Norks are demanding Lady GaGa’s meat dress.
Yeah,maybe so. Won’t be anything to cheer about, either way.
