N. Korea Backs Out Of Korean War Peace Treaty

Postby StlSluggers » Wed May 27, 2009 10:11 am

Bloomberg.com wrote: May 27 (Bloomberg) -- North Korea threatened a military response to South Korean participation in a U.S.-led program to seize weapons of mass destruction, and said it will no longer abide by the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War.

“The Korean People’s Army will not be bound to the Armistice Agreement any longer,” the official Korean Central News Agency said in a statement today. Any attempt to inspect North Korean vessels will be countered with “prompt and strong military strikes.” South Korea’s military said it will “deal sternly with any provocation” from the North.

Grabs popcorn and gets a good seat.

It so feels like the atmosphere before World War 2.
Cartoon-y leaders posturing, the "baddies" openly building up their military arsenal, our side seemingly doing nothing about it.

It kind of feels inevitable something will happen.

I wonder what would happen if North Korea invaded South Korea? Will Barak Obama be Neville Chamberlain 2?

The "kill them with kindness" approach certainly hasn't been working yet. NK and Iran have only become more aggressive and defiant.

If Barak goes and visits North Korea shortly and calls Kim Jong Il "a decent guy" or something (I can't remember exactly what Chamberlain said) I'm going to get a serious case of deja vu. :-o

I really wish we had concentrated on North Korea over the last 8 years.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

LOL no, I read a lot about the causes behind WW1 and WW2 back in high school. Happy coincidence that we studied it in history too :-L .
You couldn't have written some of the characters/scenarios.

I had no idea you are so old.
So North Korea is Japan, Iraqi insurgents are Germany and Afganistan is Italy? Seems a lot less romantic and the food isn't so good...in fact people are starving in those countries. Don't know how we work religion and terrorism into it but I'm sure that Hollywood could do something with it.

Actually, I do see the similarities. Franz Ferdinand played a benefit for the troops in Iraq last year, unfortunately they came out alive :-/

No, I'd say from memory that North Korea is Japan, Iran is Germany (because our side has had more contact with their leader, and I'd say they are richer then North Korea) and possibly Taliban-lead Pakistan is Italy.
Because of the nukes they look to be a more threatening combination then the original axis.
