    I am not from there, but I wonder if the reasoning is to have them march on foot and clear the land mines scattered about the DMZ

    Don't they do this every year just to get some pressure on some country to get something going on? I remember hearing about NK doing stunts like this every single year. Nothing happens.

    The question is, did NK attack the SK warship or not? I am not up to date on this, as far as I am aware, it's all guessing. If there's hardcore evidence, than even USA can't stop SK from attacking NK, it's a clear sign of an act of war initialized by NK.

    So the only thing SK needs to do is to mobilize their troops and match it against the current NK troop and hopefully things will calm down.

    The countries around Korea needs to start worrying and prepare for war time that could involve a serious nuclear incident. This could go wrong very fast.

    This just in, fresh out the oven (AFP, 1 hour ago): http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5h9Swx-8u9FJjLwv5IVJNUjOc6jhg

    "SEOUL — Traces of explosive from a torpedo have been found on debris from a sunken South Korean warship, fuelling suspicions that North Korea sank the vessel, a report said Thursday.

    Aluminium fragments from a torpedo casing have also been found, Dong-A Ilbo newspaper quoted a member of a team investigating the blast as saying."


    I know it's still Wednesday for some of us here.
