    Default N.Korea shells island in South, causing injuries

    oh no!


    SEOUL (AFP) - Several North Korean artillery shells landed on a South Korean border island Tuesday, damaging homes and causing injuries, YTN television reported.

    A resident of Yeonpyeong island near the tense Yellow Sea border told YTN by phone that some 50 shells landed and dozens of houses were damaged, with some people hurt.

    The South's defence ministry could not immediately confirm damage or casualties.

    "A North Korean artillery unit staged an illegal firing provocation at 2:34 pm and South Korean troops fired back immediately in self-defence," a ministry spokesman told AFP.

    From what type of big guns? If it is tank, during training or target firing, remember need to use rope to tie the main gun to prevent the rounds from hitting JB. Else the gunner will become instant hero liao

    Maybe the N.Korean military commanders were itching for a fight, so they reported to the brass that the south started the firing first.

    By looking current world status, starting a war is unlikely la. Neither China or Russia would want war, if they going to support NK, it would be limited.

    Though, US and Jap will definitely support SK if NK invade.

    Very minor.
    Obviously not serious.
    Serious is when DPRK attack with 30 divisions across DMZ.
    DPRK is in no shape to war with others.
    Don't lose any sleep over this.




    The real monster is Japan. (Not the hollow DPRK) Never forget this.




    Once it is allowed to militarise again, Japan is a world power. They can become nuclear power rapidly.
    Their weapons will be very advanced. Japan has advanced electronics, miniaturisation and robotics. Even US got to learn from Japan on germ/biological weapons after WW2.

    public opinion is a very big deal in japan... its no longer like pre-WWII.

    the general public are very outspoken and very conservative.

    also consider the current and past few slate of politicians are pretty clueless.

    Yeah... Japan is now quite different from its pre-WWII days.

    I am more worry about China than Japan. In its early days after PRC took over ROC, it fought with US during Korean War, fought with India over border dispute, fought with Vietnam because it wants to teach it a lesson and amassed troop in China-Soviet border and had clashes after their relationship broke. Is remarkably amazing not many seems to remember and not many seems to realise China can be very aggressive. China is the only nation had openly fought with the 2 global powers in our modern history.

    N.Korea is lucky that the South doesn't have a military policy that is like Israel if not, Pyongyang would probably be occupied by now.

    israel position is unique... even till today they feel they have no true allies and think consistently badgered by anyone who is not jewish. i have tremendous respect for the jewish nation and jewish people, despite their hard handed approaches.

    but yes, i praise south korea for its patience and perseverance. a lot of countries could have gone to full out war with lesser provocation than that (or in this case, to break the armistice).

    i note that a lot of south koreans i have spoken with ultimately want to see reunification so that is the main cause of restrain. i suppose they still view north korea to be 'their' people - misguided, mistreated but nonetheless their own countryman.

    North Korea military is one of the major ones in the world atm. If they were to ever take over South Korea, they will be armed with financial means to do more damage to elsewhere.

    USA's Iraq experience + the bad economy may deter from any intervention. Also, there is no benefit for USA, no oil in South or North Korea.
    China have a non-interference policy. Unless they claim North K to be also part of China, nothing will be done.
    Japan's military is not significant enough to battle against North Korea.

    Once South Korea is taken over... they will have more money and potential to invade elsewhere. World domination is imminent.
