North Korea "readies missiles"

North Korea has placed surface-to-surface missiles on launch pads in the Yellow Sea, Yonhap news agency reported Nov. 28, as the United States and South Korea began military exercises and China said it would try to ensure peace.


South Korean President Lee Myung-bak told a visiting Chinese delegation that Beijing, North Korea's only major ally which is traditionally reluctant to criticise the reclusive regime, should do more to help.


China, which agreed with South Korea that the situation was "worrisome", would try to stop it deteriorating, the delegation responded, the presidential Blue House and Chinese media said.


Yonhap also said North Korea had moved surface-to-air missiles to frontline areas, days after it shelled a tiny South Korean island killing four people. The North's official KCNA news agency warned of retaliatory action if its territory is violated.


South Korea's Defence Ministry told journalists to leave the island, Yeonpyeong, because the situation was "bad". Many residents evacuated earlier said they did not want to return.


"We will deliver a brutal military blow on any provocation which violates our territorial waters," KCNA said.

  1. I know in the past; some have said of other places in the world where we intervened and
    have a presence that it was oil, or minerals
    or money

    What the hell could we possibly be still doing in Korea? And why would we even contemplate yet another no win altercation with people that don't want us there in the first place?

    We have spent billions over the last 50 plus years there - for what?

    Truly vexes me

  4. The war mongers in the pentagon have an unrealistic goal of world hegemony
    (world domination). They will squeeze the American tax payer to death before they reach their goal. When the money runs out WW3 will begin. Game over.

  6. Please note: I firmly believe China has already fired a warning shot at the U.S. also as that thing off the coast of California was definitely a missile, government lies beside. Thanks to Clinton allowing them to buy missile guidance technology along with this President's Chamberlain like tendencies (Anti-American in my book) it stands to reason that China is getting exactly what it wants
    I wrote the following well over a year ago. In the full post, I made the argument that this President showing the weakness that he is now known for would in fact aid and abet this tin horn dictator in N.Korea. I just above took the China card into consideration as to my premise. Now, the madman is taking his shots as I feared and the Moron in Chief has the utter gall to proclaim this isn't a crisis or something to that effect.

    "WE CANNOT NEGOTIATE WITH MADMEN! Chamberlain Jr. has got to get that through his fat head! While we fiddle/faddle, Korea lies to our faces while working at getting what they want! One other thing here. The folks on the left seem to think the Koreans, being the honorable people that they are would never do anything stupid! Wrong!! As is evidenced buy their latest action, the North Koreans are willing to risk destruction well knowing the weak sister leaders of the world will cave in as always. And in the eyes of the morons in power here, they can't deliver a payload! WRONG! They have a short range missile that can deliver a small warhead. And lest anyone forget, we have 35,000 troops around the border there. One bomb. That's all it takes! But we'll trust the Anti-American UN and a madman?! Good Grief!

  9. 8.15 the boastful gung ho amerikan says
    "And lest anyone forget, we have 35,000 troops around the border there. One bomb.
    (not to mention central bankers and an almighty dollar )
    Dream on .

    The Americans since WW2 only make war on week third world countries that they believe are incapable of fighting back by using superior technology such as depleted uranium firing more modern tanks in Iraq.

    But, How many americans died the last time America tried to impose its empires will on Korea?
    Or viet-nam for that matter ?
    A determined people fighting for national independence even if poor is not to easy to defeat.
    The result of the last Korean War ?
    An armistice ,a cease fire .not a US victory and surrender of the Koreans .
    the Nth Koreans say that was an American defeat.

    The nth Korean leader may be considered by you as a fanatic and a crazy ,and perhaps he is ,but his party and military maintains its position of power not simply because they may be communists , but because the Koreans never make any compromise on the question of national independence ,no matter how hard they are pushed at whatever cost.
    Even the threats of anhilation by a nuclear bomb by superpowers.
    But times change, what was possible in the early 50s such as the landing of troops at Inchon by the US navy would not be so easy today.
    With modern weaponry aircraft carriers are simply potential floating coffins.
    Even a small amour piecing shell or missile such as a uranium typed shell or hellfire type explosion goes off at a super heat temperature that would cook the entire crew in any compartmented /bulkhead sectioned Carrier.
    A carrier is a much bigger target than a solid armor protected tank.
    A carrier does not need to be hit by a small nuclear weapon.
    By the way.
    NOTE WELL
    Enriching uranium creates a by product it is called depleted uranium.
    That appears to be the real reason why there is a big song and dance about uranium enrichment.
    Nth Korea may not even have a missile and atomics capable of hitting a US carrier.
    So what!

    Want to take your arrogant dreamy Empire chances that the week backward Koreans military will not be able to hit back any other way.

    Volunteer right now for a job on a coffin ship.

    The Empire needs you as cannon fodder for your banksters.

  10. MILLIONS cashless in Australia and the ‘problem is still not solved”yet!
    Normaly these kind of software problems are solved in a few hours or back up systems can be used.

    “ONE of Australia's biggest banks is scrambling to process payments to millions of customers, who potentially face days of uncertainty about when they will be able to access their money.”

    ATM money is counted as bank “vault reserves” for fractional banking purposes.

    This appears to be a test run (and pyscholical conditioning ) for handling any future potential bank runs or ATM lockouts ,not only in australia , but in the rest of the world too ,as bank reserve levels of insolvant banks come increasingly into question.
    Including in America.

  13. anon 5:18 You are wrong about depleted uranium. It is like lead and it's only value in munitions is that it is heavy. You need to look up the word depleted.
