Satanic_Hamster: For the life of me, I don't understand why any South Korean would enter North Korean controlled territory.  You KNOW there's a chance of being killed or held hostage.

Officials have also confirmed that the USS John McCain, an Aegis-class destroyer capable of intercepting missiles, has been positioned off the Korean peninsula.

Man, pet peeve of mine.  There's no such thing as an Aegis-class destroyer.  Aegis is a system, not a ship class.


You have your pet peeves, I have mine.  To Aegis own.

bmihura: Short of the Fed printing dollars, can there be anything more politically stupid? Except most United States sheep won't notice until a few years out.

Asa Phelps: Amos Quito: Any Pie Left: This is hardly a blip to South Korea. But it is an incredibly damaging thing for the North to do to itself; losing  the currency it was generating, and the business.   When their people eventually rise up against their government, it is going to be more bloody than anything seen in the last 100 years, I promise.


Fortunately for Kim Jong Un, (Un-fortunately?) the citizens of North Korea are unarmed, and weak from hunger.

Guess who will be doing most of the bleeding?

Those civilians will probably try to walk to the nearest border.

I have a coworker from Beijing who says that nork refugees in china are already a problem of some political sensitivity. There are enough that you notice 'em. More coming over the border every day for years. And a lot of them are operating food carts and that sort of thing.

They probably adjust better to life in china than they would adjust to life in south korea. the freedom and standard of living in south korea would blow their minds.



If the minefields didn't blow them first.

Woah woah woah...I've got a theory. Rodman has a lot of experience with cross-dressing and makeup and the like, right? Being a master of disguise, has anyone considered that maybe Rodman secretly apprehended/assassinated Un and took his place with an elaborate costume? Have any of you guys actually seen or talked to Rodman since he supposedly returned from his trip? Didn't think so.

Any Pie Left: The North's situation is not something that can last; history proves that. But when it eventually goes, it will go on the most epic scale anyone has seen since the third century. The collateral damage will be worldwide and massive.

I don't know. What I do know is that photo. That photo is as powerful as the Vietnam photos of the officer pulling the trigger and the girl that had the skin falling off of her... Or the Nazi concentration camp photos in WWII.

This is the photo to show America that there is a humanitarian reason to end the status quo in NK to justify action. Not only does NK try to bully the United States, NK bullies their own children.

The world should speak to NK in a united voice. Now. Right the fark now.

How about the U.S. make sure its own aren't dying of starvation first?

/just a thought


???

Did ANYONE, aside from a stranded hiker or two, actually starve to death here in the last year?

That's not possible without as many wars as possible to keep the economy from tanking. So, they are.

Best Korea is probably planning on holding those workers 'for their own safety' for a few days, just in case.

South Korea would find it in their best interest to shut the complex down once they get all of their people out of there.

Poor little Kim, what's an aspiring dictator to do these days?
