More War in the World? Great ... Just what we need

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea said Thursday that South Korea fabricated evidence implicating the North in a torpedo attack in order to pick on the North and any attempt at retaliating for the warship's sinking would be answered with "all-out war."

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak vowed "stern action" for the attack after a multinational investigation issued its long-awaited results Thursday, concluding the North fired a torpedo that sank the Cheonan navy ship March 26 near the Koreas' tense sea border.

"If the (South Korean) enemies try to deal any retaliation or punishment, or if they try sanctions or a strike on us .... we will answer to this with all-out war," Col. Pak In Ho of North Korea's navy told broadcaster APTN in an exclusive interview in Pyongyang.

  • That war's never been over, a cease fire was called, but that's it.

  • If I was S Korea I'd blow up one of theirs. It's so obvious who blew up that ship. N korea needs to be punished. I assume this will go through the UN and not much will be done as usual.

  • North Korea is a crazy place. They just totally refuse to work with United Nations forever until 1991 (but still remain difficult to deal with) while South Korea has always been friendly . They were in all out war over the Korean Peninsula in 1950 - 1953 & have been at each others throats since. They seriously need a peace treaty....


     If you want less government involved, go visit North Korea...they are an every man for himself country....

  • This is nothing new. As others said, there is always a war there and in southeast Asia, other areas, etc. Its just that they don't let the civilians know. LOL.

  • People really like to ignore what's right in front of them.

    A cease-fire or any delay in aggression is a good thing; whether they were on good terms or bad terms. All out open war with N. Korea as an aggressor? Are half of you eating stupid flakes for breakfast??! Do you not understand the potential ramifications that could have for the entire planet?

  • wenona mandy I do actually remember quite well; and the discussion of just exactly what type of weapons they really have access to. Is that the kind of chance you want to take? Do you think if it came down to it; the powers that be here would allow that to occur? No we'd get drawn into another confrontation. My word people; do you not understand "if" this were to happen we would most assuredly be affected?

  • Anon 20: I guess you don't remember about a half a year ago or so when North Korea wanted to 'blow us out of the water'? North Korea loves to pick fights with whoever they can.

    ***
    And NOT surprisingly, North Korea decided to try and "flex their puny muscles" AFTER good ol boy bill Clinton, paid him a visit, and the two American journalists that were being held hostage, were quickly released. I WONDER (massive sarcasm) what Clinton PROMISED Kim Jong Il that got him to agree to release the hostages, that Obama would not or COULD not do? And then Jong Il gets all full himself?! Nuclear weapons, Plutonium grade uranium? Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.........!!!

    Just sayin' :o)
