South Korea War Drill Invokes Frightening response from North Korea

North Korea threatened on Thursday to launch a "sacred" nuclear war against South Korea if it attacks, as Seoul staged military exercises that have raised already high tensions on the peninsula. Defence chief Kim Yong Chun said North Korea was fully prepared to launch a war and would use its nuclear capabilities if attacked and warned the South against intruding even the smallest amount on its territory. North Korea's anger has been piqued this week by South Korea's staging of live-fire drills on Yeonpyeong Island, which was shelled by the North's artillery on November 23.

    • I take every military action undertaken by my country with a grain of salt, Iraq was a major fuck up, but the U.S. isn't stirring up shit in Korea. North Korea is run by a narcissistic homicidal megalomaniac, the country is fucking brainwashed. They committed an unprovoked act of war on South Korea. This shit is the same as Hitler. Tyrants don't negotiate. The South Koreans are doing what they should short of a military strike. Tyrants only understand force and South Korea's response was below r More..

  • I don't think North Korea will ever launch a full scale operation against the South without backing from the Chinese. Just a lot of rhetoric comes out of the North.

    Its good to see South Korea taking a tougher stance.

    • I think to them it is just skirmishes like the ones that have occurred in the past. North Korea promised a military response to these drills and it has not come.

      At the same time with the transition of power from Kim to his son there could be a lot of problems.

    • If you had any idea of what is hoped for behind the scenes, then you might think differently.
      This is not a SK/NK squabble, but a provocation from Western Powers to urge NK to overeact.
      You say this is merely a skirmish, when SK have been constantly prodding of late ?
      Can you not see the bigger picture ????

    • There's no telling what the crazy north korean leadership will do. They are so out of touch with the rest of the world the entire country may as well be underground. Dear leader may go nuts in his old age and order an attack (and probably get their asses kicked) but this time it is doubtful the Chinese will give them much backing. North korea is such a problem and liability the chinamen are ready to wash their hands of them.

  • I wish they would just get it over with and launch a couple Nukes, then I can put my under ground bunker I paid 40000 for to use! Its full of a years supply of food water etc, and I just changed the air filters for the air system. It's kinda cozy down there.

    • Ever heard of the term fallout?
      I live thousands of miles away from the recent volcanic activity but it still grounded the planes 30 miles away from where I live.

      I also live thousands of miles away from Chernobyl but radioactivity still blanketed Europe and Britain,
      and that wasn't even a nuclear explosion

      Do something useful with your fallout shelter and turn it into an underground car park because it won't do you any other good.

      Don't wish nuclear war on the world.

  • Come on fellas, we could sit here and exchange insults all day the Brits could shove Vietnam in our face, we can counter with Dunkirk, what do you think Al gaydah and tackybuns see when they look at brits and americans, they see one in the same, so let's redirect our focus in the proper direction.

  • LOL at North Korea and their threats which is all they are really, if we are fortunate enough for the North to actually pull something nuclear, well then North Korea will no longer exist anymore, they are going to get all they are asking for if shit goes down.

  • Call their bluff. NK doesnt have the military to launch an invasion of the south. Once the call goes out, over half of the NK military will defect. I would hope that the average NK soldier wouldnt have the gumption to fight for a despotic regime.

    • Do you really think this is about NK invasion dreams ?
      I`m certainly no fan of NK, but the events over the last few weeks have been prompted and pushed by her enemies.
      Full scale conflict is inevitable. And the loss of life in the region will be immense....Not that the West give a toss.

    • Do you really think that the US Government gives a rats ass about US Marines on the ground ?
      They will be regarded as much as SK military personnel/civilians .....fodder.
      And as for "Brits", They`re one of the the main Global political players in this whole adventure.
      NK will be mititarily overpowered in the very near future, at the expense of many Nationalities in the region.
      No doubt you`ll be watching from your armchair.

      It's about time Britain stopped going to war just to protect american financial interests.

    • > over half of the NK military will defect
      Very unlikely. I'm pretty certain it won't be the case.

      Before NK is defeated, they'll almost certainly destroy Seoul and kill a couple hundred thousand people, including several thousand US soldiers. And actually, if they are lucky, North can even win. Korea is a small country, and they have the numbers.
