    North Korea vows nuclear response to U.S.-Seoul drills

    "SEOUL — North Korea warned Saturday that it will respond with "powerful nuclear deterrence" to joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises poised to begin this weekend, saying the drills amount to a provocation that cannot be ignored."

    "On Saturday, North Korea's powerful National Defense Commission — headed by leader Kim Jong Il — backed that threat up by promising a "retaliatory sacred war" against South Korea and the U.S. for what it called a second "unpardonable" provocation after wrongly accusing the North in the Cheonan incident."

    "The army and people of the (North) will legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises," the commission said in a statement carried by the country's official Korean Central News Agency."

    I, for one, am terrified. Really.

    There is hope, however!

    All we'd have to do to get the North Koreans to lay down their arms is offer to feed them.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Very poorly for all involved. Pretty much the reason it hasn't happened already.

    Will the U.S. ignore the drills (NK response) or escalate the situation?

    I can't imagine the US government capitulating to the North Koreans on this.

    I think if North Korea is threatening nuclear attacks we should do a preemptive strike against them. I believe a nation with such an abhorrent and irrational leader will use a nuke anyway somewhere down the road. I don't think we should act gung ho and instigate a nuclear conflict, but I do think we should strategically find a way to disable their nukes and overthrow the North Korean communist regime.

    Nuh-uh.

    I don't want the US anywhere near that mess of a country.

    If you think we have it bad in Afghanistan, just think of how bad we'd have it in a nation where we were directly responsible for the toppling of the national cult of personality.

    No, thanks.

    I think China would get involved and support N Korea like they continue to do
