Ok, so maybe the banging of drums and rattling of sabres is nothing to take lightly. War is hell and lives are at stake and all that. Still, for sheer audacity and rhetorical flourish, you have to give the Gold to the NORKs.
Here’s the official response from the Korean People’s Army (KPA) to the sanctions imposed by South Korean President Lee:
Ok, back with the YOTW feature after a brief hiatus. It’s going to be tough to top this video of some fine Korean models over at ROKdrop. Well, I can’t top it, but let me introduce Ms. Yoon Sun Hee, a popular “racing” model…
Hot cars and fast women, what’s not to like?
She could be the girl next door. Nah, I’ve actually seen the girl who lives next door….
See guys, she’s got an umbrella. No need to wear a raincoat… Yeah, that was bad. Very bad…
…everybody has one.
This guy speculates on what war would like should things take a worse turn here on the Korean peninsula.
Is he wrong? Well, the fact that he says Seoul has a population of 1 million doesn’t inspire much confidence. I have probably a million people living in my neighborhood (Seoul has well over 10 million citizens). Now, Kim Jung-il could certainly rain some fire, death, and destruction down on our heads, but there ain’t no way he could flatten the city (unless his nukes are a lot bigger than what he’s tested thus far).
Still, it wouldn’t be pretty, that’s for sure. It would also be an act of suicide for Mr. Kim and his regime. I am of the opinion that Kim may be a maniac, but he’s not stupid. The big wildcard in all of this will be where China comes down. I haven’t seen many positive signs in that regard, but I can’t believe having the North initiate a war would be in China’s interests. And the Chinese are cold, hard calculators who will likely protect their interests by prevailing on the North to back down.
But that’s just one navel gazer’s opinion…
UPDATE: Here’s another opinion perhaps more worthy of consideration.
