    Very interesting. However, has there been any more information about the event other than posturing at this point? Is S. Korea going to retailiate or take it? Very dangerous circumstances.

    The North's posturing over the past several years has put a lot of distance between them and their only friends, the Chinese.

    With their bold act of war last night (and when they sunk that S. Korean naval vessel) they've act brashly. At this point I really believe the South has fueled the planes and is ready to carpet bomb the North into oblivion. They've been repeatedly attacked by the North over the last several years and their patience is through.

    I can't imagine that China would back North Korea defensively outside of offering to honor existing weapons contracts. Should be interesting to see how fast this escalates.

    As a point germane to the topic, I don't know if any of you have been paying attention because of the media oversight on the matter but last week a US led nuclear commission observed hundreds of active nuclear centrifuges in North Korea. This is HUGE and the timing of their attack is way too close to this event. To say the region is on alert is an understatement.

    It should not escalate at all. There really should not be a ground battle. If they persist the best way to handle this is to simply nuke them out of existence, problem solved.

    It seems the two events are related. N. Korea can develop Nukes and feels it can push its weight around more. I was ridiculed when I said this could happen during conversations about the sunk ship. Maybe its a bid for more food but we'll see what happens.

    The part that's most interesting is watching the "big boys"; i.e., China and the U.S.

    If either act in favor of one side or the other, then the other one is practically obligated to respond in some fashion. From there, how will Russia react? What about the other major world players? This has the potential for polarization that G.W. Bush's "Axis of Terror" almost had. Remember: WWII didn't start as a war between multiple countries; it escalated into a world war.

    If either S.Korea or N.Korea use nukes, then violations of the nuke treaties have to be considered.

    It's going to be an interesting week.

    In a case like this a nuke strike it should be so completely overwhelming that there is nothing left to require any other nation to get involved except with words. In other words there is nothing or no one left to fight over or defend.

    Have you calculated the radioactive fallout patterns?

    So, you were serious about nuking them out of existence? I guess you don't care at all about the civilians?

    In an interesting twist I read a story from FT that a South Korean diplomat made a statement on Monday that the South was open to hosting nuclear arms again. Apparently this is a taboo subject. Interesting coincidence though.

    Anyone suggesting nuclear arms isnt being reasonable.

    Seems to me a couple of years ago Scientific American published a story about fallout patterns? As I recall, Nuking Africa and India would be relatively safe for North America.

    Frankly, I can't see China allowing North Korea to get too far out of hand before she steps in on them. China still has the upper hand on North Korea.

    North Korea is in a very desperate state as far as economics and food are concerned. A very bad state!

    Cheers,

    First you do not understand much about the north. From their birth they are all taught to be a military people. So it is not about not caring about them. It is about caring for those who they would harm. In WW2 we bombed the civilians in Japan and it was justified. In my opinion it would be justified with North Korea to stop their constant push that could start a 3rd world war. So yes if it were my call I would nuke them all out of existence to keep our causalities and our allies at a minimum.

    That's pathetic, especially coming from a Christian. I'm going to pray for you. You have an abnormal disregard for human life.

    Horrendous! Do you realize that there are about 24 million citizens barely existing in North Korea? They're starving. They are in a pathetic situation. There are probably a lot more Christians there than you might believe also.

    The population is not the regime. Please note the distinction. There are about 200,000 who living in Pyongyang with a more privileged life than the general populace.

    I care about North Koreans --especially their need of the Gospel. I don't want to nuke them out of existence! How can you say such vile things?!

    “This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.'"

    "Pathetic?" you be the judge since you seem to have standards above that of God.
    I also would like them saved so I care about them also, but there is a limit since I care about our people and the South Korean people more. And yet you would allow these people to continue to murder people in South Korea or send American troops into harms way who most do not know the Lord. If you care so much what are you doing here? Why are you not over there spreading the gospel? Yes you most likely would end up in prison but there are souls to win in there also. May I suggest that you send your own sons and daughters into combat so they can die and the enemy can survive if you really care or is that just a word that without substance?

    So when did God tell you to wipe out the North Koreans?
