    NKorea tensions spike at Asian security forum

    HANOI, Vietnam – North Korea on Friday threatened the United States and South Korea with a "physical response" to planned weekend naval exercises as tensions with the communist nation rose in the aftermath of the sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on the North.
    In Vietnam for a Southeast Asian regional security forum, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and a North Korean official traded barbs over the ship incident, the upcoming military drills and the imposition of new U.S. sanctions against the North.
    The spokesman for the North Korean delegation to the talks, Ri Tong Il, repeated Pyongyang's denial of responsibility for the March sinking of the ship that killed 46 South Korean sailors and said the upcoming military drills were a violation of its sovereignty that harkened back to the days of 19th-century "gunboat diplomacy."
    The exercises will be "another expression of hostile policy against" North Korea. "There will be physical response against the threat imposed by the United States militarily," Ri told reporters in Hanoi.
    That North Korean official better be careful, Hillary will kick his ass. One thing about Hillary Clinton, she don't take no ****. He'll find out right quick about physical responses.

    Now we have a potential nuclear threat from the N Koreans.

    And no one around here thinks this is worth discussing. Fascinating!

    Each year the U.S. holds an exercise in the summer and each year North Korea threatens physical repsonse. More sabre rattling from North Korea and nothing more. There isn't too much discussion over this because it happens each and every year the U.S. does it. The only difference this year is they throw in the the word nuclear. I would bet real money against North Korea actually doing anything.

    Not defending the disgusting regime of Kim Jong-Il. But, if the North Koreans did naval exercises off of the coast of Los Angeles or New York, don't you think that the American government would threaten retaliation?

    We wouldn't threaten nuclear retaliation. We'd just shadow them with a carrier battlegroup and tell them "Here's a line. We advise against crossing it."

    That is true. The point that I am trying to make is, if we would condemn their exercises on our shores, why would we exercise on their shores? It just seems a bit hypocritical.

    No.... we would just have to be ready to rescue all of the broken down ships.
