Is Korea doomed?

Postby riki_kun » Sat Mar 30, 2013 12:07 pm

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/30/north-korea-says-it-in-state-war-with-south-korea/

So it's very close to a new war between the North and South and if what the experts are saying is correct it will be a war that could kill millions , especially if North uses nuclear weapons , all this is terrible and i hope it never happens.
Also USA will help the South and they will probably burn NK to ashes , so if this really happens will it be the end for both South and North Korea?

All of NK's sabre-rattling is serving on purpose - to rally its citizens behind their new leader. The only way for him to convince them he's a deity worthy of worship is to showboat and shoot his mouth off. It's not like the average NK citizen knows anything about the real world anyway - they only know what their government tells them.

Besides, there's a big NK holiday coming up and in addition to that, the Peasant Army are due to return to their farms. Can't not grow the Elites' dinners, can we? NK knows war is suicide so they will continue to do what they've been doing since the Armistice was signed: make noise until they get some attention.

At least I hope so - I live in Seoul LOL

I hope you are right and nothing bad happens , i'm more worried about the U.S. doing something stupid about this and unleashing a war.

Relax (how ironic), the Koreas have been "at war" since the end of the Korean War. Nothing new and nothing to worry about.

Korea has been at war for thousands of years even before it was called Korea and even before the three Kingdoms. In one way it has been halted because of the nuclear threats. One action in that regard from the north and they would be decimated by more than one country.

I hope they don't start anything. We surely would never have any Korean dramas to see or discuss any more. The whole of Korea would be out of bounds for hundreds of years.

Even with Mishil running the show down south and Looney Tunes running things up north, I'm not worrying. Both sides are giving up a lot of hot air to score political points with their respective home audiences. The media hype things up and the hoi polloi get distracted from how lousy things are on the domestic front.

Invasion by the North?

Postby tuku99 » Sat Jan 18, 2014 3:01 am

So far, it has survived....

I was kind of concerned...

But, I went this last summer, I survived 1 week there, there was NO invasion of the North... My friends kind of laughed off my concerns.

I met a US Marine, off base (in a shopping area), he serves in the DMZ, I quizzed him about this topic...

He just laughed it off, saying it sells Newspapers, and keeps the news outlets happy... Nothing's changed he said...
