South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se: North Korea to face serious consequences if it carries out another nuclear test
Fox News Reports: South Korean Marines fired artillery shells across a disputed sea border Monday after North Korean shells from a live fire drill conducted by Pyongyang fell into the water south of the frontier, Seoul officials told the Associated Press.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Semi-official South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Monday that the North had begun the drill just after noon (local time). The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirmed that some North Korean ordnance landed in South Korean waters, and that the South responded with fire.
The South Korean K-9 howitzers have a 24-mile (40-kilometer) range.
Hopefully this will calm down rather quickly. The NK leadership is INSANE.
Hopefully this will calm down rather quickly. The US leadership is INSANE.
Will our nuky buky prez make them cross the red line or will he play golf?
Maybe they need to give Dennis Rodman a call, if he’s out of rehab. Just hide all the vodka and have Dennis wear a red, white and blue Depends.
What many - even within our own diplomatic corps - fail to realize is that there are those in the world, notably the NORKs and Iranian Mullahs who actually *want* an apocalypse.
Whether it is out of a sense of "nothing left to lose" (NORK) or "prophetic fulfillment" (Iran) they are literally trying to start a nuclear conflagration.
And if they even for a moment sense that we will not retaliate, then they will.
Time to send in the special man...
Maybe we should call Putin and suggst trading Ukraine for South Korean security or maybe we should let both of them go. It may not be the right thing but near term it will siure save a pretty penny.
“Testing, testing....1,2,3...testing....” would not have happened, imo, under a Reagan, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, or Mike Lee.
Obama needs to draw a Red Line! And he needs to do it Now!
Chicom’s pit bull on a leash.
Wasn’t Europe’s rationale similar to that, when they ceded the Sudetenland [and then all of Czechoslovakia] to Hitler?
No, they had America as a backstop.
At the time France and England just didn’t want more war/expense/sacrifice. They hoped Hitler would stop at Czechoslovakia, or at most at that plus Poland. They could have opposed Hitler early on, but they thought they could appease him w a couple of countries they didn’t especially care about. It didn’t work.
South Korea, if attacked, needs to have cruise missiles knock out the NK media and communications grid, those guys are useless if they can’t have their propaganda victory. Knock down those big statues and government buildings in downtown Pyongyang and see how they spin that to their prisoners, I mean people
You sound like you know more about it than I do. I was surprised that S. Korea fired back so quickly. It would be nice if N. Korea gets the message. But in all honesty, it would be even nicer if that torture/death state got overrun. The N. Koreans have suffered long enough. It’s time for them to get a break.
SK usually fired back, although they didn’t really respond well to the sinking of the Cheonan
I agree. You would think China would be able to add 2 and 2 and get 4. I mean if they stopped supporting NK and it falls, Korea is united but needs rebuilding, foreign troops gone within a few years, awesome trading partner right on their doorstep.
China would benefit greatly
I see. Hopefully they learned a lesson from Cheonan, and won’t make that mistake again.
I see little comparison between French and British leaders then and our leaders today. The experience of World War I told them America would be there at some point. We, however, are all alone and I refer only to the American people, not our leadership.
You see, the statists of the world have to do something about us because if America elects a leader in the mold of a Reagan, they know their jig would be up.
They wish to make the world safe for statism.
If NK does it again, I suggest they take out the NK media and immediately start broadcasting anti-Kim stuff on those frequencies. Just to goad them a bit
Them peoples is bat Shiite crazy.
I’ll bet if I think about it, they pulled Kuh Ray Zee stuff under Reagan.
Hell, the Komie Chinese had no problem clipping the wing of one our P3’s and downing it under Bush.
But yeah, the message coming back would be a little different.
Problem is their patron, the Chinese, give them a certain cover for their insanity.
They need an attitude adjustment ala Team America....F.A.G.’s....
NK better watch out, the Obama State Dept. might make a Hashtag or something!
Stand firm, SoKo! Selfies of little girls posing as diplomats are on the way!!
Exactly. Couldn’t be more predictable after Putin’s gains.
Another red line?
‘I agree. You would think China would be able to add 2 and 2 and get 4. I mean if they stopped supporting NK and it falls, Korea is united but needs rebuilding, foreign troops gone within a few years, awesome trading partner right on their doorstep.
China would benefit greatly.’
These are excellent points. If, however, you can comprehend the Red Chinese leadership’s psyche, you’re way ahead of me. Maybe they think the fall of N. Korea would cause them to lose face? I.e.: a regime they supported couldn’t make it? Your guess is probably a lot better than mine.
Not quite sure of what you’re saying. Maybe I need more caffeine?
I do see similarities, however, between what Vlad is up to and Hitler’s beginning moves. Hitler tried to cloak his land aggrandizement in rational justifications. Vlad, after he got his first chunk of the Soviet Union back, pauses to yak with Obama and others who are—or should be—nervous. He’ll go on being ‘reasonable’ as long as it suits his purpose. Plus he’s playing to liberals #1 weakness: their preference for ‘dialogue’ above all else. So Vlad will give them all the dialogue they want, while he plots his next move.
Nature abhors a president who sucks.
South Korea, Israel, and Formosa had better prepare. They are on their own. As long as no muslims are there to b harmed. The Democrats only protect muslims.
How much did Obama pay Kimmy Un to provide this welcome military detraction to the March 31 failure of Obamacare?
Anybody have a Kimmy Un “doo” of Obama ready to post here?
All parties seem to be hoping for a combination of humanitarian aid and gradual economic pressure to slowly force reforms in the North, instead. Forcing the issue would probably require a first strike carpet-bombing of the areas north of the DMZ with those neutron bombs that the US no longer has. Maybe we could buy some from Israel...
Nature may, but the voters of America love one. Why else would they elect him twice? On the bright side, he does keep Matthews mouth full so he is not heard as often.
A feckless leader for a majority of the electorate who care only about handouts. Stupidity, amorality and personal greed are an ugly mixture which often leads to ruin. We haven’t hit bottom yet, either.
I know, My FRiend, I know.
I have no idea how the Chinese politburo thinks
If North Korea and China play their cards right, they can invade South Korea and Taiwan simultaneously. Once it is confirmed that Obama won’t take action, China can attack Japan as well while Obama explains away that China is just “a regional power”.
The N. Koreans have suffered long enough.
Obviously not long enough yet.......
