Good for South Korea! North Korea flex their muscles too much too often, it's about time the South Koreans can do the same back.

Just as the US wants to cut back on fighting...... Now so many others want to go to war. If they want to fight so be it. Just don't let them use our stuff. We may need it after we rest a bit.

This is chest-beating. Nothing more, nothing less.

Irrelevant sensationalism. The armistice has essentially been peace.

Please, you call everything sensationalist.

NK has nukes, NK has or has attempted to assassinate SK officials and citizens, SK formed a commando unit of convicts to do the same, NK torpedoed a SK warship, NK and SK regularly run live fire military drills on the border, the NK and SK gov'ts both saber rattle and refuse any kind of peace deal and NK and SK forces keep taking pot shots at each other. That's not peace, that's a war with both sides pulling their punches and this kind of shit risks a return to all out war.

Because a lot of what you say (including the statement above) is sensationalist. It makes it hard to take you seriously. Sure in some cases the words might be true, but they clearly paint an image that is meant to arouse emotion more than accurately describing or explaining what is happening.

You are probably one of the few people in the world who think the Korean war is still in practice a war, labels aside. This sort of tension happens a lot around the world. Do you think India and Pakistan are still at war?

I don't think they are at war, but there are some harsh feelings toward each other. I do think India is a better friend to the US than Pakistan.

India and Pakistan don't have regular shootouts, do live fire drills on the border or hit each others military. The ONLY thing stopping the Koreas from dropping the lie of peace is MAD.
