    Seoul to announce PSI membership

    Seoul will today announce its decision to become a fully operating member of the Proliferation Security Initiative, officials said yesterday.

    "The announcement will come today following the security policy meeting where it was decided that, as had been proposed, Seoul would fully take part in the program," said a Foreign Ministry official.

    [...]

    Fears are now escalating of possible military provocation from Pyongyang in areas such as the Northern Limit Line - the de facto inter-Korean maritime border the North refuses to acknowledge - since the North earlier said it would consider it a declaration of war if Seoul joins PSI as a full member.

    Top DPRK legislator warns of punishment against America, South Korea

    PYONGYANG, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Kim Yong Nam, top legislator of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), warned on Tuesday that his country would mete out "unmerciful punishment" if the United States and South Korea "start a war."

    Kim was speaking at a meeting held to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the birth of late president Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

    "Grave obstacles are lying in the way of the country's reunification due to the reckless moves of the conservative authorities in America and South Korea for a war of aggression against the DPRK," Kim said.

    He warned that if the United States and South Korea ignite a war, all the DPRK people would display the invincible spirit and powerful war deterrent for self-defense and mete out "merciless punishment."

    NK has over 50,000 rocket and artillery tubes pointed at Seoul. I've SEEN the war plans, the estimates and all that good stuff. NK's war plans call for pounding Seoul as the opening move. Even if, and this is a big if, the war stays conventional, the casualty rate for the city is est. 50% in the first 30 min of a shooting war. If they use CBR, 70%.

    That's why there hasn't been another Korean War. And why attacking NK's nuclear facilities is not really an option.
    It's like the world's longest, and most dangerous hostage situation.

    That's a very apt description. The NK's can't win a war, they know it. So they base everything on inflicting the most damage they can in hopes that prevents them from being attacked.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I guess Obama's strong response to their missile launch had nothing to do with this.
    What did he do, throw up?

    Now he can go **** himself.
    Sounds fine to me. But before we do that, we should evacuate the US troops out of Seoul, okay? Cuz if we attack NK, they're going to shoot back.

    Nah, Obama is smarter than that.

    I can't believe we agree!

    We should pull our troops out of SK too and let N and S "work it out" on their own.

    Isn't that the idea behind the nuclear deterrent?
