    Made you look but we're definitely getting there!
    North Korea on war footing as South cuts trade



    REUTERS - North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has reportedly ordered his military to be on combat alert as tensions rise sharply on the peninsula after the South accused its neighbour of sinking a warship.
    The report by the Souths Yonhap news agency immediately hit already nervous Seoul financial markets, with the main share index dropping more than three percent.

    Yonhap quoted a local group of North Korea watchers as saying their sources there had told them Kims command had been broadcast by a top military official.

    There was no reference to the order on North Korean media seen outside the reclusive state nor any immediate comment from South Korean officials.

    Seoul on Monday announced it would ban all trade with the North and stop its commercial ships using South Korean waters, moves likely to further squeeze the already ruined North Korean economy.

    Both sides have stepped up their angry rhetoric after international investigators late last week blamed the North for torpedoing the Cheonan corvette in March, killing 46 sailors in one of the deadliest clashes between the two since the 1950-53 Korean War.

    The United States, which has 28,000 troops on the peninsula, threw its full support behind South Korea and said it was working hard to stop the escalation fury getting out of hand.

    The tensions are running high though but I think that if the US would send some more combat troops there the North Koreans will shrink to their former level of patheticness. And have no illusions, the Chinese would simply let the Koreans and Americans roll them up as they are sick and tired of them too.

    Well who would lead North's armies I wonder, their only Marshal Ri Ul Sol is 89 years old, ViceMarshal Ri Yong Mu 87. Some "younger" ones in 70-is. Their officers really have loooong careers, and they also seem to have Brezhnev's medal fetish.
    With those medals I don't think they require bullet proof vests!!

    North Korea to sever all ties with South

    North Korea announced Tuesday it was cutting all ties with its southern neighbour and expelling all South Korean personnel from a jointly-run industrial estate after it was accused of sinking one of the South's warships in March.

    Do you think North Korea did it or do you think it was a black op to intended to incite conflict between both countries?

    Taking into account that the South Koreans denied the North's involvement for a long time I doubt that it is a black op.

    I think that for most of us, this illustrates the fruitless conflict between capitalism and communism.

    If NK were to institute similar economic reforms to those China has then that conflict would be lessened.

    If NK were to turn fully NS, fascist or just co-operative economic, then union with the South would be a more serious possibility.

    The American administration would, of course, immediately react to that by bombing the country with an pre-emptive strike, but with the NK nuke, maybe not.

    I see NK as a golden opportunity for a communist regime to switch from shared to distributed ownership, and there is no way that I believe that NK is as bad as the corporate media would have us think. It must be bad, but not quite so bad.

    North Korea 'severs all ties' with Seoul

    Amid the rising tensions, Seoul announced on Sunday it was ending trade relations with the North in response to the sinking of the Cheonan.

    South Korea has also said it will drop propaganda leaflets into the North to tell people about the sinking, as well as setting up giant electronic billboards to flash messages.

    It has resumed propaganda broadcasts to the North, playing radio programmes that will soon be broadcast via border loudspeakers.

    The US, which has thousands of troops based in South Korea, has backed Seoul, condemning the incident and confirming late on Monday that it will hold joint anti-submarine naval exercises with South Korean forces.

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the US and China must work together to "fashion an effective response" to the sinking of the Cheonan.
    This is ridiculous, and possibly yet another international stunt orchestrated by the US in order to stir war, diplomatic jostling etc abroad. There is no evidence that NK sunk that ship. The US is abusing this situation (and perhaps even created it?) to further its global agenda for dominance.

    Respects to you Loki as the forum's boss, but do you actually believe that statement? These days, the U.S. doesn't have the will to conquer a sandbox much less take out some pathetic nation like NKorea.
