What?

If he does that, he is DEAD. China would not get involved if NK fires first. America would carpet bomb the country with MOABs.

I can smell a bluff from here.

At first I was startled by it too. Were North Koreans declaring war or anything? Then someone on the Chinese internet said that NK has threaten to use same trick several years ago. The representatives in Beijing attending the meetings are not going to like this.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

It surely throws back to Princess Leia's dwarf comment about stormtroopers, still epic after all those years.

Not that funny when you consider just how much malnourishment is needed to result in something like this. Especially since for Asians, Korean's aren't that genetically short.

Could this push be that they are finally running out of men and money to maintain their prepared war machine? To the point where their only options are admit it was all a waste, or use it?

IF they were really going to use all their military potential they would not be shouting they are going to attack. That is done only when you have a high sense of chivalry or are raving mad.

Knowing my (koreans) races tendency to act irrational over a sense of nationality, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they did. Not that I am sure NK and SK have similar sense of unities... but, I would place my money in certain aspects seeing the way they act.

South Korea says to strike back at North if attacked

Quote:
(Reuters) - South Korea's military said it will strike back at North Korea and target its top leadership if Pyongyang launches a threatened attack in response to what it says are "hostile" drills between U.S. and South Korean forces.

One of North Korea's top generals, in a rare appearance on state television on Tuesday, said Pyongyang had torn up its armistice deal with Washington and threatened military action against the U.S. and South Korea if the drills went ahead. The military exercises began on March 1.

Tensions have ratcheted higher across the Korean peninsula since the North, under youthful leader Kim Jong-un who took office just over a year ago after the death of his father, launched a long range rocket last December.

He followed this with a third nuclear test on February 12, triggering the prospect of more U.N. sanctions that are due to be formally announced on Thursday after the United States and China, the North's one major diplomatic ally, struck a deal to punish Pyongyang.

At the same time, North Korea has stepped up its military threats against South Korea and the United States, prompting the terse warning from Seoul on Wednesday that it would not stand idly by if its territory was attacked.

"We have all preparations in place for strong and decisive punishment, not only against the source of the aggression and its support forces but also the commanding element," Major General Kim Yong-hyun of the South Korean army told a press conference in one of the clearest threats Seoul has made.

North Korea's bellicose rhetoric rarely goes beyond that, although in 2010 it sank a South Korean naval vessel, killing 46 sailors and in the same year shelled a South Korean island, killing civilians.

Stung by criticism it took too long to respond to the island shelling, South Korea's military has relaxed its rules, allowing commanders on the ground to respond to aggression instead of needing permission from top military brass.

South Korea's new President Park Geun-hye had pledged to engage with the North if it dropped its nuclear plans but now faces the prospect of a hostile challenge early in her 5-year term.

NO MORE YACHTS AND RACING CARS

The proposed fresh sanctions would explicitly ban the sale to Pyongyang of items coveted by North Korea's ruling elite, such as yachts and racing cars, a U.N. Security Council diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

In 2009, Italian authorities blocked the sale of two yachts worth more than $10 million that they believed were headed for Kim Jong-il, the current Kim's father, who enjoyed copious amounts of luxury brandy and fresh sushi in a country where a third of the population is malnourished.

The new sanctions will target North Korea's financial transactions, which often involve using cash couriers that make them hard to trace, and its criminal activities such as drugs and counterfeiting.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said the new sanctions would target "the illicit activities of North Korean diplomatic personnel, North Korean banking relationships, (and) illicit transfers of bulk cash".

North Korea was slapped with sanctions in 2006 that banned the import of a range of luxury goods from jet skis to Fenders and Harleys following its first nuclear test in a bid to hit the high-life of the Kim family and its hangers on.

The impoverished country, whose economy is smaller than it was 20 years ago, has been subject to sanctions of some kind from the United States for almost all of its existence and since 2006 has seen United Nations sanctions imposed for its long range rocket and nuclear tests.

Despite the sanctions Pyongyang now has a nuclear stockpile sufficient for around half a dozen warheads, has made substantial progress in developing a long-range missile and is working towards miniaturizing a nuclear warhead for an intercontinental ballistic missile.

CHINA BACKS SANCTIONS, DRILLS A FLASHPOINT

China has backed all rounds of sanctions and fell into line with the latest move in the Security Council, risking relations with its prickly ally.

Its U.N. ambassador, Li Baodong, told Reuters the 15-nation Security Council was aiming for a Thursday vote on a draft sanctions resolution, which was agreed to by Washington and Beijing after three weeks of negotiations.

A spokeswoman for China's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that the situation on the Korean peninsula was "complicated and sensitive" and repeated its frequent call for all sides to "maintain calm and restraint".

It remains unclear however what concrete action North Korea will take and how much attention it will pay to Beijing's entreaties.

Pyongyang abrogated the Armistice deal that ended the 1950-53 Korean War once before and is seen as unlikely to stage any significant military attack on South Korea.

"The regime's threats are consistent with previous North Korean behavior and are meant to intimidate the United Nations Security Council as it deliberates on additional sanctions against Pyongyang for its February nuclear test," said Bruce Klingner of The Heritage Foundation.

North Korea has frequently bridled at large-scale military drills staged on South Korean soil, especially those involving the U.S. military, which acts as Seoul's guarantor of security.

About 200,000 Korean troops and 10,000 U.S. forces are expected to be mobilized for their "Foal Eagle" exercise, under the Combined Forces Command, which goes until the end of April. Separate computer-simulated drills called "Key Resolve" start on March 11.
C'mon stop parlaying. If there is a conflict, I don't mind flying over to get shots out, either with a camera or a rifle.

North Korea Ends Peace Pacts With South

It also unplugs the hotline connecting them


http://www.newser.com/story/164065/n...mpaign=rss_3_2

Quote:
North Korea has made good on one of its threats in the wake of new UN sanctions, but luckily it wasn't the one about nuking the US. Instead, Pyongyang announced it was scrapping its non-aggression pacts with South Korea and unplugging the hotline between the two countries, reports AFP. This apparently means that the 1953 armistice between the two countries will be null and void—as the North had threatened earlier this week—along with a 1991 agreement that sought to further reduce tensions.

"The DPRK (North Korea) abrogates all agreements on nonaggressions reached between the North and the South," said a government statement, reports the South's Yonhap News Agency. Pyongyang also said it was closing the Panmunjom crossing point between the two countries, reports the BBC. Leader Kim Jong-Un reportedly visited front-line troops and told them to be ready to "annihilate the enemy."

So does this mean the Koreas are officially at war again?

If that's the case, then I guess Miss Park Geun-hye already blasted North Korean ambassadors face to face (and in private) with that kind of reply to NK's recent decision:



I, too, can command the wind, sir! I have a hurricane in me that will strip North Korea bare if you dare to try me!

Yeah, that would probably match the character of the Iron Lady of Korea. It's a very poor decision from the North IMHO.

I am guessing there is only 1 use for their MRBM and that single nuke : it is meant for the 7th Fleet.

I wonder if they can shoot it down. That is sort of what they would have been trained for in the Cold War.

I know that, but one is not fighting (mostly) since 1953. What agreements are now (supposedly) gone. Meaning whatever ceasefires are also over...at least by North Korea's say so.

Which means (in theory) the war is "hot" again. At least "on paper".
