Is anyone else scared? I am

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea threatened military action Wednesday against U.S. and South Korean warships plying the waters near the Koreas' disputed maritime border, raising the specter of a naval clash just days after the regime's underground nuclear test.

  • I have to agree with gludwig2000...IMO its "posturing" for N.Korea to appear greater than it really is military/strength/weapon wise. Kim J. Ill is a really sick individual and if he was truely bent on taking back S.Korea or global war, then he would made a move by now. Hes been running that country for decades now with nothing but empty threats. And IMO, this is one reason America has put up with him. Some claim that our Pres. is showing 'weakness', but really, I think he is letting N.Korea make a big enough of a mistake so that if/when we go in there, we aren't preceived as bullies (like America usually comes across in some countries opinions). I think that either it will die down again after a harsh reprimand, or Kim J. will finally make a stupid move and N.Korea will be freed quickly.

  • 'Hit the U.S. on the raw'
    The regime also said it could no longer promise the safety of U.S. and South Korean warships and civilian vessels in the waters near the Korea's western maritime border.

    "They should bear in mind that the (North) has tremendous military muscle and its own method of strike able to conquer any targets in its vicinity at one stroke or hit the U.S. on the raw, if necessary," it said.

  • I don't think that N.Korea can take our warships or that they really want to take us on.

  • We have a heavy military presence there and in surrounding areas. If they even try they will be shot down.

  • Part of military tactic is knowing when to go in. Ozarkgirl is correct.
