    Tensions Continue to Rise in North and South Korea.

    Dozens of North Korean land mines wash ashore in South Korea, killing one man and injuring another

    US official in charge of sanctions meets with South Koreans to discuss penalties against North Korea

    I don't know if the landmines are linked to the joint military defense training last week, but it certainly doesn't help.

    Do you think we should provoke North Korea more with penalties? Discuss.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    it said in your article that the landmines are left over from the Korean war, and have been washed down by torrential rains, nothing sinister on NK part, for a change.

    Not at all. Actually, I think it's quite hilarious that were rolling up there shoving their face in their own filth after they threatened to use nukes. But sooner or later their gonna snap. Just saying.

    Ah i see. It still seems odd that this happened but a week afterwards is all.

    Wouldn't be such a problem if someone hadn't given them Nuke technology would it? Now who could that have been?.....hmmmmm.......:

    Not a damn thing we can do about that now. It's like trying to babysit a child with a gun. Sounds fun doesn't it?

    I love that...Not a damn thing eh? How about we recognize that allowing lunatics to have Nuclear technology on their promise that they just want it for energy purposes, then holding off the rest of the worlds outcry when they know that the country is developing weapons, and acting all surprised when they do get them....

    To use your own analogy, I wouldn't feel for your plight if you were the one that gave the child the gun in the first place.

    Yes but how is recognizing that going to do anything to help the situation? We may have given the baby the gun but when hes pointing it at us, is it the BEST idea to tell him 'No more cookies'? It's about seeking a solution. Again there isn't a damn thing we can do about it now. Maybe it's all this money were sending to Pakistan that's the problem?

    Well, to your point it's too late to do anything about NK, but we have another baby in Iran... so that situation while different, could be helped. And yes, no more cookies, no television and no anything else unless they hand over the gun. We already know NK is starving it's people... and won't dare do a damn thing without China's say so. NK must bluster and throw tantrums. If they fire something non-nuclear say at South Korea or Japan, things will heat up. If they launch a nuke - well all bets are off.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
