    North Korea Threatens to Harm U.S. If Attacked

    SEOUL, South Korea North Korea boasted that it has become a "proud nuclear power" and threatened Monday to harm the U.S. if attacked, as tensions mounted over a possible crackdown on exports of suspected missile parts from the North.

    President Obama said the U.S. is ready to cope with "any contingencies" involving North Korea and vowed not to "reward belligerence and provocation."

    South Korea's YTN news network reported that a U.S. Navy destroyer was tailing a North Korean ship suspected of carrying missiles and related parts toward Myanmar in what could be the first test of new U.N. sanctions against the North over its recent nuclear test.

    The sanctions toughen an earlier arms embargo against North Korea and authorize ship searches in an attempt to thwart its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

    Tensions on the Korean peninsula have spiked since North Korea defiantly conducted its second nuclear explosion on May 25. It later declared it would expand its atomic bomb program and threatened war to protest the U.N. sanctions imposed in response to its nuclear test.

    On Monday, the North's main Rodong Sinmun newspaper said it is "nonsense" to say the country threatens the U.S. and claimed it is Washington that threatens the North. The paper also warned that the country is prepared to strike back if attacked.

    "As long as our country has become a proud nuclear power, the U.S. should take a correct look at whom it is dealing with," the paper said. "It would be a grave mistake for the U.S. to think it can remain unhurt if it ignites the fuse of war on the Korean peninsula."

    SEOUL, South Korea A U.S. Navy destroyer is tailing a North Korean ship suspected of carrying illicit weapons toward Myanmar in what could be the first test of new U.N. sanctions against the North over its recent nuclear test, a leading TV network said Sunday.

    The South Korean news network YTN, citing an unidentified intelligence source in the South, said the U.S. suspects the cargo ship Kang Nam is carrying missiles and related parts. Myanmar's military government, which faces an arms embargo from the United States and the European Union, has reportedly bought weapons from North Korea.

    So you all ready for a major powers scale war?
    Negotiaitons are over..deals are over..stopping them getting the bomb is over..they have violated every UN sanction or whatnot against them.
    They are technically at War with multiple nations states...and violating that cease fire as well.

    A P.O.S NK rust bucket is sailing right in front of brand spanking new off the shelf UN sanctions with missiles supposedly on board.

    So we going to fight or what?..Obama?
    If we and our Allies intend to push this where it actually is..he and they better start mentally prepping the people for it.
    Obama is so far verbally doing here what he should also be doing with Iran. Tough Language..now he needs to back it up.

    League of Nations is the United Nations unless it stops constantly applying new sanctions on top of already failed endevours.
    End points must be reached. No more Teacup diplomacy?



    (WW scenario is the ship has one of their nukes on it and its intended to be detonated in Singapore..significantly reducing the supply line to Europe.)

    If NK starts anything, they had better change their name to "Enchanted Land of Glass".

    I say we call up China and Russia and say, "Hey, on the count of 3 we all fire a nuke on NK"

    That's my biggest concern with North Korea. If anything did happen the first thing they would do is invade and/or destroy South Korea to gain control of the peninsula.

    Whatever provokes North Korea and whatever retaliation we unfold there are potentially tens of millions of South Korean casualties.

    A good reason for this administration to lay off the saber rattling.

    I don't entirely agree with that. A rattle or two is required. We need to respond in a firm manner while trying not to provoke them. North Korea needs to know they do not intimidate us but while doing this making it aware that using South Korea as a hostage isn't a viable option for them either.

    It's quite a delicate situation. Especially with Kim Jong-il looking like he wants to go out guns blazing before he fully hands things over to his son.

    North Korea needs to understand that aggression will be met with aggression.

    The United States does not want war. That does not mean the United States should hide from war. Sometimes, the war comes to you.

    Celtic:

    The situation with North Korea is like playing chess with a child -- a fat child with a bloated ego and an IQ of 75. Let him run off at at mouth about all the 'moves' he's got. Let him bring out his queen. We will easily scoop it up and say: "You're move, little man."

    Sure, we could pick up the chess board and begin beating the child with it. However, the other adults in the park might frown on that course of action.
