Evactions and 'terror alert level red'

Wake me up when we got boots crossing the DMZ.

Why would you want to be woken up for a battle that would last maybe ten minutes?

Stick and stones may break bones but they ain't gonna do shit to a few tanks.

It's possible (however unlikely) that the NK army could overwhelm the SK army with sheer numbers. Assuming all reserve troops were made active, NK would have the fighting force of 9 million and SK would have a fighting force of 3.6 million.

This happens every year. You could almost set your clock to it.

I agree that it's expected to happen each year but I think that normalcy bias can be used against us one day.

When I was stationed in SK, I did go to the DMZ... but it was more like my sambas than boots... while singing firework... and taking pictures of NK soldiers.

I hope this is like the last time they felt neglected. When they zotted that island. No time for this kinda shit. Heavens mercy me what will China say? No, seriously, when will China say STFU?

China's taste for North Korea has been diminishing for quite some time now. They are also probably pretty unimpressed with the new leadership - and it is mostly new leadership seeing as how Kim mk. III is a bit triggerhappy with the old guard.

They are aware that if North Korea actually starts a war with South Korea, the United States will join in. And China doesn't want a war with us just like we don't want a war with them. They won't do a thing about it beyond some token condemnation, since the North will have made its own bed there.

China won't say or do anything. In the last decade they've built huge prison camps along the boarder and lined it with their military. Once shit hits the fan they will round the refugees up then throw them back across the boarder when it cools down. They don't wan't anything to do with it other than preventing it from being their problem.

I remember last time this happened the South promised to retaliate in kind. Interesting to see how this will pan out.

South Korea detected a projectile, assumed to be a small rocket.....[the] military responded by firing a few dozen shells at the area from which the North Korean projectile was fired.

Seems like they are more than sticking to their word

I have no idea why westerners get their panties in a bunch over this kabuki theater. It has absolutely no impact on the rest of the world. Best Korea isn't going to do a thing to the South. These out bursts are internal fights between the various factions in Best Korea.

Well, I'm waiting for south Korea to just straight take that shit from Kim. They'd be doing the world a service. And it would be profitable unification for all involved.

Am I the only one that sort of wants to see S Korea not put up with this shit? I mean their defence spending dwarfs the entire N. Korea economy.

Part of me wants to see them storm the North next time they're attcked try to minimize casualties but absolutely crush them in battle. Send in some paratroopers liberate a shed load of slave labour camps walk around like theu own the place bomb some shady looking nuclear weapons research plants to the stone age. Rhen just waltz back over the border.

Leaving the regiem intact but shown to have zero military capability and given a slap for waving its incapable floppy dick.

Probably wouldn't actually be a good thing but, you know, fuck those guys!
