    Was it the North or South that lost a ship a couple months ago?

    South lost a ship to the North, though the North denied it for some reason.

    South lost the ship a couple months ago, but the alleged North missile ended up being of German origin. Germany is not a military trading partner with North Korea, so it can only have been a false flag.

    This current situation could be another engineered provocation, so we need to watch carefully how this pans out.

    That's just it, they're people. World + Life = 0 chances of permanent peace.

    So err are they wanting to be starting a war on the Southern Koreans? NK isn't exactly anyone's friend I wonder if any other countries will respond and step in. [​IMG]

    It's probably another "Well carry on being mega douches until you send us some more food" tactic.

    If this doesn't work they will start nuclear tests again. Then the good ol USA will send them some wheat/wahtever with the stars and stripes and a nice little "A gift from the people of the USA" note etched on each grain. Then the people will be told how glorious the Great Leader is, so amazing even the mighty Americans pay him tribute.

    Just in case you think that sounds too much like bullshit, it's what happened last time.

    EDIT: Should probably point out I'm not having a dig at the Americans, they do the same with everyone they blackmail into giving them aid, I just think they are the only ones who tried to send a message to the people just to have it usurped by the regime.

    Weapons in the international arms market can pass through many hands before they're fired. No-one is technically a military trading partner with North Korea, and yet they still end up with weapons from all over the shop. Russia is not a military trading partner with the Taliban, and yet russian made assault rifles are their weapon of choice.

    It's not really going to be a World War if it kicks off North vs South, not in the traditional sense. The previous World Wars happened because when it kicked off a load of old alliances were called in. No-one is going to back North Korea in a military vs military fight against the rest of the world, not even China. It's going to be more like a stand off. North Korea's conventional army could be easily overwhelmed by Western forces, the reason North Korea is still about is because of the worry it has WMDs. That's why the whole justification of Iraq was such bollocks, because the west had already shown that if a country openly admits to having WMDs that its too afraid to face them.

    though north and south Korea don't really consider themselves as the same country(heavily guarded border between the 2 letting nobody through)
