A second Korean War imminent?

Postby HBS Guy » 30 Mar 2013, 11:41

North Korea says it has entered a "state of war" with the South and will deal with every inter-Korean issue accordingly.

The announcement was made in a joint statement attributed to all government bodies and institutions and carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

It comes as the North ratchets up talk of striking targets in the United States.

"As of now, inter-Korea relations enter a state of war and all matters between the two Koreas will be handled according to wartime protocol," the statement said.

"The long-standing situation of the Korean peninsula being neither at peace nor at war is finally over."

The two Koreas have always technically remained at war because the 1950-53 Korean War concluded with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.

Earlier this month the North announced it was ripping up the armistice and other bilateral peace pacts signed with Seoul in protest against South Korea-US joint military exercises.

It is arguable that the annual war exercises by the USA and South Korea are provocative because they are aimed at North Korea.

All it takes is an idiot like gung-ho Commander Will Rogers of US Navy who shot down an Iranian Civil aircraft in Iranian airspace killing 290 civilians.

Newsweek story, Sea of Lies about how the US military tried to cover up this idiocy with lies.
