North Korea warns it’s on the “brink of war”

State news channel blames U.S. and South Korean military drills for rising tensions


 

North Korea’s state news agency is warning that U.S. and South Korean military drills being run in the Korean peninsula are increasing tensions between the countries. “The situation on the Korean peninsula is inching closer to the brink of war,” according to a dispatch from the Korean central news agency. The statement comes three days after four South Koreans on Yeonpyeong Island were killed by North Korean artillery fire. General Walter Sharp, the U.S. military commander in South Korea, is set to visit the area on Friday.

North Korea warns it’s on the “brink of war”

  1. Korea, as a peninsular, lies north to south at an angle of approximately 30 degrees, and this angle is reflected in the land border, but it is very interesting that the maritime border changes at the coast, instead of continuing the 30 degree line it moves latitudinally straight across the China Sea. Thus, this places the Yeonpyeong island within the jurisdiction of South Korea. Now, is that not some kind of provocation?

    The sinking of the Cheonan naval ship also happened north of my (theoretical) latitudinal line.

    Nevertheless, I hope that the 'South' will retaliate next time … even though that puts the city of Seoul in a terrible position.

    • f you man people don't wanna die just cause you ain't there dosen't mean its ok if seoul get bombed

  2. I personally think what our politicains can't say, that war with North Korea is the best answer. These crazies have been threatening South Korea for too long, and now is the time for action.

  3. I'm Japanese. In Japan, I believe nobody feels good or has good image to North Korea. I'm the one of them surely. One of the reasons is that they kidnap some Japanese people. The number is not clear, but some of missing people were kidnapped. Of course, North Korea have denied the fact, but some people came back to Japan from North Korea.

    The North is so strange, but we have to talk without weapons. The purpose is to protect all people and erase the conflict between countries. How can we solve the problem with keeping guns at the ready?

  4. I think it's time to call in Alec Baldwin;)

    • F.A.G ….Federation of Actor's Guild, the only way it can de-escalate is within North Korea.
