    North Korea Threatens South, Armistice Off

    North Korea Announces They Are No Longer Bound by the Armistice With South Korea



    North Korea threatened to attack South Korea one day after Seoul announced that it would join a U.S.-led naval exercise, aimed at intercepting any shipments suspected of carrying materials used in the making of weapons of mass destruction.

    North Korean media reported that Pyongyang is feeling "compelled to take a decisive measure" and will mete out "unimaginable and merciless punishment" to any country that will blockade its ships. It warned the international community that it would not hesitate to use its "tremendous military muscle" against any threats.

    The government also proclaimed that the North would no longer honor the North-South armistice signed at the end of the Korean War.

    Didn't MacArthur suggest something along these lines 50+ years ago?

    Don't you remember what happened in the last Korean War?

    China flooded the battle zones with Chinese troops and we pulled out.

    If there is another war it will go global instantly.

    I agree with this. China could easily rein in NK right now if they wanted to. I'm not really sure why China isn't doing more to keep them in check though.

    Because we are doing BS in other areas and they have no respect for us

    I'm not sure either. It seems like China would be very reluctant to let something happen that would draw us into another war and possibly further devalue our debt that they own when economic backlash happens...

    Because leaving North Korea as a loose cannon poses little threat to China-- and it helps keep us in check. China's not interested in being a military superpower, but North Korea's existence gives them economic and diplomatic leverage against us that allows them to continue developing into an economic superpower.

    Attempting to engage North Korea directly, or even provide substantial aid to South Korea, would be economic suicide for the United States. Look at the budget deficits that are predicted with two wars, and imagine what would happen if we started a third.

    I'd be laughing my ass off, if I thought I had enough resources to survive another Great Depression.

    They trust that we are smarter than that. I fear they underestimate the raw self-destructive capacity of democracy.
