    North Korea warns of attack if ships checked

    North Korea, facing international sanction for this week's nuclear test, threatened on Wednesday to attack the South after Seoul joined a U.S.-led initiative to check vessels suspected of carrying equipment for weapons of mass destruction.

    The threat comes after South Korean media reported earlier that Pyongyang had restarted a plant that makes weapons-grade plutonium.

    "Any hostile act against our peaceful vessels including search and seizure will be considered an unpardonable infringement on our sovereignty and we will immediately respond with a powerful military strike," the spokesman for the North's army was quoted as saying by the official KCNA news agency

    It looks like things around Korea could get bad very quickly. Do you think this is just hot air from NKorea or would they actually attack SKorea if SKorea does end up searching a NKorea vessel?

    What would this mean for the US? If SKorea was attacked by NKorea and the US responded could we handle a war in Korea along with Iraq and Afghan?

    Another world leader with too much testosterone. How wonderful.

    I simply cannot see NKorea committing suicide by attacking SKorea.

    Go along with the checks I say, it would be suicide for them even if they were serious. Hell, China, even CHINA is fed up with them. I think it would help them more if the NK would just get out.

    No, we would be forced to concede both Koreas to the Chinese just to stop the violence and gain some measure of stability in the region.

    More grandstanding from NK, tell me is anyone willing to really bet money on NK attacking? After I have spent 3 years on the peninsula from 1999 to 2002 I am willing to take that bet.

    Any takers on NK actually attacking?

    It won't happen but taking any bets for real money.

    Kim Joong Il is a gangster who is very hungry and sick now. He only want to eat. Because he can not eat foods anylonger so the world should feed him by his bombs or fake money.

    He just masturbation himself.

    They should go ahead and inspect the ships.

    NK is continuing to call the U.S.' bluff on everything, now it's our time to call theirs.

    If they bomb SK, then god help them.

    Somebody should remind Kim Jong Ill that his country can be reduced to dust if he doesn't shut the **** up.

    What exactly would that accomplish?
    Really if that was to happen how do you think the world would react.

    Does it matter?
