    NKorea deploys anti-aircraft missiles as wargame tensions mount

    North Korea moved long-range anti-aircraft missiles close to the border with South Korea as tensions rose over the sinking of one of Seoul's warships, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

    Chosun Ilbo quoted a military source as saying the North moved some SA-5 missiles from the southwestern province of Hwanghae to areas near the border, where they pose a potential threat to South Korean jets.
    The missiles were repositioned around the time when the corvette sank in March, it said. A Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman declined to comment on what he called military intelligence matters.
    The aim seems to be to prevent South Korean planes from launching precision strikes on strategic targets in the North in any emergency, the source told the paper. "When SA-5 tracer radar is activated, our fighters have to fly low to avoid detection. Their activities are consequently somewhat restricted," the source was quoted as saying.

    I think there is a lot of hype coming from the North.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
