    N. Korea: Peninsula being pushed to 'brink of war'

    YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea North Korea said Friday that planned U.S.-South Korean military drills are pushing the peninsula to the "brink of war" as a U.S. military commander headed to an island devastated by North Korean artillery to show solidarity with ally Seoul.

    North Korea's state news agency said drills this weekend involving South Korean forces and a U.S. nuclear powered supercarrier in waters south of a skirmish Tuesday between the rival Koreas are a reckless plan by "trigger-happy elements" and that the maneuvers target the North.

    None of this makes any sense at all.

    There's no logic in the North Koreans move here.

    They're even alienating China, just makes no sense.

    There's some people on crack in Pyongyang mother****ers.

    I hate to say it, but none of this is within our control, if North Korea make a serious move, I'll be the first one to stand up, and go over to defend South Korea.

    But I think the more attention we give Pyongyang, the more brazen they will get. They're looking for a crisis. After all, if he dies, it's much easier to enable his son to be "leader" during a crisis. People need something to look up to.

    Yeah, right. China SAYS they are annoyed. However, they have said this several times and yet China is sending more to the DPRK than it ever has and has repeatedly given it cover in the UNSC. China isn't annoyed by this at all... they welcome this. Anyone who believes otherwise doesn't know the agenda of the People's Republic

    Actually, if "Dear Leader" dies now, this could even more rapidly spin out of control. The military has no respect for his son at all... The military, rather than the Kim clique, could be pushing this testing how much they can get away with within the DPRK system... This is a VERY dangerous situation...

    I "hate to say it" but this is as close as we have come to a conflict since the 50's. There have been skirmishes and causualties but no artillery fired on the ROK since the active war. The upcoming manuvers which involve U.S. ships could trigger something. Things could get very interesting. No one wants to back down. All ingredidents for a serious incident to say the least.

    Agreed. They are probably sending weapons to NK as we speak. In a way this may be a test of our resolve or response for future reference. It would be a great diversion for our Navy while they take Taiwan. Or just a way to get us spread even thinner than we are.
