North Korea bombing South Korea peninsula, tensions and outcome?

Question by : North Korea bombing South Korea peninsula, tensions and outcome?
As you may know recently, North Korea bombed the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong at November 23, 2010. Why did it happen? South Korean tensions have been growing since March when earlier a South Korean naval vessel was bombed and sunk around this area as well. North Korea’s government official Kim Jong II is passing his “power” over to his son Kim Jong Un, which is believed to be ruled as a “king” and not a government leader.

What have other nations said? Russia remains quiet giving suing hints of “peace”, meanwhile China says “it’s concerned” and the United States told the North to cease its “belligerent” action. Hmm… what is South Korean doing? Nothing… is South Korea waiting on the United States to finally take action by it’s lackadaisical and incautious president Barack Obama? Since South Korea relies on its allies, like the United States, will South Korea do anything about the threats and vigorous actions North Korea has done? Or is North Korea trying to show other nations it’s the most “powerful” due to it’s aptitude of warfare?

Should the United States do anything to fix South Korea’s problem?
Do you think Barack Obama is just cruising along the way just lacking leadership and continuously saying “I inherited this problem from the previous administration.”

Q&A: While public eyes focus on Afghanistan, Iran and North Korea is a naval war brewing?

Question by Jack P: While public eyes focus on Afghanistan, Iran and North Korea is a naval war brewing?
ABOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON – Cold War enemies the United States and Vietnam demonstrated their blossoming military relations Sunday as a U.S. nuclear supercarrier cruised in waters off the Southeast Asian nation’s coast — sending a message that China is not the region’s only big player.

The visit comes 35 years after the Vietnam War as Washington and Hanoi are cozying up in a number of areas, from negotiating a controversial deal to share civilian nuclear fuel and technology to agreeing that China needs to work with its neighbors to resolve territorial claims in the South China Sea.

China claims the entire sea and the disputed Spratly and Paracel islands over which it exercises complete sovereignty. But Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines also have staked claims on all or some of the territory, which straddles vital shipping lanes, important fishing grounds and is believed rich in oil and natural gas reserves.

There are huge oil reserves under the Spratly and Paracel islands and the basis for the Chinese claim [over the claims of Vietnam and the others] is military prowess and projected naval power. The claims of the others haven’t been resolves, so much as placed in abeyance out of helplessness.

Meanwhile, China owns a healthy piece of the US national debt which, if repudiated by the US because of war, might be more than enough to offset the cost of doing business [as well as throwing China into a state of economic chaos].

The Chinese claim to the South China Sea has been a thorn in the side to the entire region for a long while, and it’s become thornier as China gained economic and concurrent military strength. Nobody’s said much about it in any language, but maybe non-verbal communication says a lot?

Is the new best friend the US seems to be finding in Vietnam a whisper of possible resolution to all manner of problems keeping the US president awake nights?
Repenting Israel: The question refers to The South China Sea. The South China Sea is a long way from Russia, India, Pakistan, Iran and Israel.

As it says in the Bible, “There’s more to heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy” [paraphrased].

Thanks for the unrelated opinion, however.
John Trottier: Thanks for the unrelated opinion. Evidently CE doesn’t include any answerers who are able to read maps and locate the South China Sea and the proximity to the places you refer to other than China.

Thanks anyway.

Answer by Repenting Israeli
China, India, Russia do not want US military aggressions in their neighborhoods! North Korea and Iran are two more competent assistants of these three powers beside strange Pakistani nuclear machines!

In short USA and it’s master Israel are trapped! Their militaristic jingoism is bringing trouble for them.

Will the US launch a premptive strike on North Korea? What do you think about this article I found?

Question by Chris G: Will the US launch a premptive strike on North Korea? What do you think about this article I found?
* With American forces bogged down in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, will Obama move towards a preemptive first strike on North Korea? This could mean the employment of tactical nuclear war heads to destroy military objectives. This piece by Turner Radio Network is probably highly speculative. But who knows?

North Korea yesterday withdrew from the Armistice that halted the Korean War. Today, official Washington is abuzz with not so secret “Top Secret” plans for the United States to make a limited nuclear first strike to wipe out the North Korean threat in one fell swoop.

Russia has been alerted to “make plans” for radiation fallout in its eastern border area. In consultations with China, the U.S. Ambassador to Beijing was said to be stunned when he was told by the Chinese government “Kim Jung Il is out of control and dangerous. He has become a serious liability for China. Do what must be done, but please do it in a manner that minimizes risk to China.”

China was then briefed about US plans and asked to prepare its southern population areas for radiation fallout. It is expected that prevailing weather patterns will disperse fallout over the sea, causing it to thin out dramatically before moving over land.

Worst development since World War 2
Our source in the State Department explained today why this situation got so bad, so fast. “The Korean War legally never ended.” he said. “There is no peace treaty, there is only an Armistice, a formal cease-fire. When North Korea officially withdrew from the Armistice yesterday, it automatically brought us back into a hot war. “he continued.

Speaking on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, the high ranking state department source told Turner Radio Network (TRN):

“Of all the scenarios involving North Korea, withdrawing from the Armistice was the one thing we thought they never would do. Since the War, everyone has known that withdrawing from the Armistice means the cease-fire is over. Today, that cease fire is over; we are back at war with North Korea and this time, the outcome will not be negotiated. Withdrawing from the Armistice was the last mistake North Korea will ever make. Their leadership must surrender now or they are nothing more than dead men walking. It’s over for them” he finished.

Pentagon: Nuclear first strike “Likely”
Early in the evening on Tuesday, President Barack Obama gave permission for the US Military to airlift “Patriot Missile Air Defense” systems to South Korea and additional units to bolster 16 systems already in Japan. Those systems were airborne hours later and arrived in South Korea and Japan today.

The model of Patriot Missile systems sent is “PAC-3″ and they were accompanied by M-901 control stations and AN/MPQ-53 phased array radar. Sources with acute knowledge of the plans for North Korea have confirmed to TRN that a US nuclear first strike is going to be launched.

The first strike will be carried out through submarine-launched, BGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missiles, model TLAM/A whose explosive payload can be “dialed” to be anywhere from 100 kilotons to one point five megatons nuclear yield per missile.

There will be no warning. North Korea will not be able to track the incoming cruise missiles via radar. The only way they will know the attack is taking place is when they see a blinding white flash as the temperature rises to ten thousand degrees and the wind gusts to 650 miles per hour.

North Korean troops along the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) will be hit first to prevent them from invading south Korea. Multiple cruise missiles using Time of Arrival (TOA) control will detonate simultaneously along the DMZ, wiping out over one million North Korean troops in seconds.

Minutes later, after the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) confirms that the North Korean leadership has been told by their own command structure that their troops at the DMZ have all been killed, Kim Jung Il will be contacted and asked if he is willing to surrender. It is expected he will not.

At that point, a B-2 Stealth Bomber will be sent in to deliver the final blow. Pyongyang will be hit with a surface detonation of a massive nuclear bomb, wiping out the entire city and the entire government of North Korea.

As soon as that surface detonation takes place, several hundred additional cruise missiles carrying conventional payloads and launched from land, air and sea sites, will hit every North Korean military facility in the entire country, instantly crippling their entire command and control system. Carrier based Aircraft will then fly in to clean up whatever resistance remains.

It is expected the war will be over within one or two days. Korea will be reunited. It’s Capitol will be Seou
I had the same thought, bewildered… Maybe I shouldn’t spread it.

No. We’re already up to Our Necks in two other Wars in the Middle East… Somebody ELSE is going to have to “step up to the plate”- to put N. Korea in its “Place”. My “bet” is on China- who is becoming increasingly Unhappy with N. Korea’s “Acting Out…” China has become a Major “Player” in the Business World… -And N. Korea’s “Saber Rattling” looks to be very BAD- for Business… ! 🙂
