Title only so far.
Approx 2 pm this afternoon,
NK fired three (artillery) rounds near Yeonpyeong Island which was attacked last year.
One landed on NLL(the sea dividing line.)
SK responded by firing back three rounds of its own.
All SK fishing boats returned to the shore and residents were evacuated to shelters.
So far no casualties were reported and NK appeared to fire at an uninhabited island called Yong-mae-do.
I guess with all the market troubles and riots around the world, Chia Pet is feeling neglected again.
So they were not kidding when they stated they would not tolerate anymore shelling.
It’s all attributable to economic unrest. ;’)
Its all attributable to economic unrest. ;)<.i>
Bush's Tea Party's Fault ™
Update: According to Chosun Ilbo(link above,)
N. Korea fired three more rounds again around 8 pm.
S. Korea fired three rounds in return.
If I had my way every American stationed in Seoul or the DMZ would be recalled immediately and all aid to SK would cease. They are the most ungrateful and disrespectful ally we've ever had. They burn more American flags on the streets of Seoul than are burned on Arab streets.
Agression (around the world) is paying off these days
Great...I have a son who’s leaving tomorrow for South Korea and multilateral war games...Prayers up for our men and women in the Armed Forces...
Glad it’s been a nice, quiet week in the news lately.
In a way our troops in south korea and our involvement there limit what South Korea needs to do to defend themselves.
I think we should slowly withdraw and only keep one or two millitary bases there in case the NORKS make it past the border. I say unleash the South Koreans and let them deal with it.
I think we should do the same in germany and in europe. Part of the reason Socialism has spread like a virus in Europe is that with us there watching their back they didn’t need to spend money on defense so they could blow more money on their “welfare states”.
I agree about Europe. The only thing we need to keep in Europe IMO are air and naval bases for transportation of troops and equipment around the world. All Army bases need to be closed. I’m not sure how many air bases we have over there, but perhaps we can even close some of them.
I completely disagree about South Korea and Asia in general. Our forward deployed troops should mainly be in the Middle East and Asia. This is where our national interests currently lie. South Korea is anything but a socialist country and believe me, they have a pretty big Army to defend themselves with.
Poland has offered us what was formerly the largest Soviet Airbase in Eastern Europe repeatedly.
The Czechs have done the same.
We are already using the Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base in Romania as a completely-U.S. facility.
(as I have been told, AF guys LOVE this place. Close to the beaches, and the locals love them, and the local economic boom it has created.)
Chia Pet feel neglected all due respect Chia Pet we been kinda busy OKAY LOL!
We should start packing up Ramstein Air base and move right now. Germany hates us and all of the Eastern European countries love us. Seems like a no brainer...
I think that reason why Chia Pet did he feel roaney POOR CHIA PET you got feel sorry for him a bit LOL!
