Seeing how the Greek issue caused much of the rest of the EU trouble by aiding them financially (at the expense of tax payers), I imagine it would be hard on them if any other country, be it France, Italy or Portugal would fall into a similar crisis.

We have that problem with Italian politicians as well, along with more than just a few in the working class. They want to appear charitable just to win the support of the people. That's actually one of the good things about Berlusconi, of all things. He thinks of politics more as an industry, rather than try to control the people through games of subtlety, and prolly why he's lasted as long as he has. I find it a paradox that the French are lending money in the hopes others will do the same tho There's really no telling what will happen at all.

Iran is supporting the ones responsible for his father's death, however, and he's trying to avoid violence with them by being subservient to them from what I understand.

About 80 federal police officers joined state police in door-to-door searches in the Vila Cruzeiro slum as 800 military troops, trained in surrounding and isolating conflict areas, stood ready in their headquarters, 20 kilometres away, to back them up.

Very unfortunate for your boyfriend and his friends.

Joking. I was actually wondering if you could tell us about the location of the anti-DPRK demonstrations if there were any, in which states and regions, whether it is closer towards Seoul or towards the 38th.

Also, it would be good if you can get your boyfriend to tell us about the defence condition of SK, whether it has been heightened and by how many levels (if possible, including mobilisation and recalls of "NSmen" over there).
Actually there has been already a shortage of kimchi already .
But I am to curious about the the military condition of Korea. I was finally going back to Korea after 10years and this shit happen. So I am bit worried that when I go back they might make me serve in the military. And I wonder if they will recall someone my families back to the army.

That is ridiculous. What is your Minister of Agriculture going to do about it? The world depends on both Koreas for the fermented cabbage supply!

They don't send recruits to the frontlines. I was enlisted when Mas Selamat Kastari (an Indonesian terrorist under the custody of Singapore) escaped, and unlike my friends who are already serving, I don't have to go around hunting for that SOB and burning my weekends.

How long is the initial service in SK? 3 years?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Two years... two years of wasting your youth.

That is exactly our same sentiment for us guys here. We enlist at 18-20 and serve for 2 (3 in the past, during TRL's or Skane's time).

I only finished my service this year (ORD loh!) but I am due for recall next June. Our area is probably less risky than yours since you are near North Korea and risk dying in the line of service.

Well, I thought I'd might post this, since this seems to be at the heart of all this shenanigans going on in the Yellow Sea lately.



Blue=South Korean defined Maritime border
Red=North Korean defined Maritime border

Hence how the North Koreans rationalize shooting training artillery shells on an island 12 miles off from the North Korean coast even further down south, as a violation of North Korean territory. It seems to be based upon some preposterous assumption that the Military Demarcation line extends straight out into the ocean.


Is it just me, or would the North Korean maritime version of the border make it REALLY easy for them to encircle the islands and cut off their ocean going life line to ROK territory?

one thing i never really understood was why seoul was made the capital of SK when it is so close to the NK border. I mean would it have been safer and made more sense to have move the capital a but farther form the border?

Glad that others understand. *sign* don't want to ever serve in the military. So hoping that I get my US citizenship next year.

History man, it was the capital of Chosun so naturally its the capital of Korea. And Pyongyang being the old capital of Goguryeo hence became the capital of North.

I am of the opinion that is they give full control of the ROK army to SlayerSBoxeR who is currently playing in a tournament, war would be over in two days.

I am sure the South Koreans have been breeding Zerg in their underground labs and breach the UN bio-warfare convention.

As long as the ROK Zerg army doesn't have Infestors with Fungal Growth, I doubt they breach any Geneva accords.
