N. Korea says it has entered into 'war' against S. Korea

SEOUL, March 29 (Yonhap) -- North Korea announced Saturday that it has entered a state of war against South Korea.

In a special statement, the North's "party, ministries and other institutions" said they will deal with every inter-Korean issue in a wartime manner.

"Situations on the Korean Peninsula, which are neither in peace or at war, have come to an end," read the statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, Pyongyang's official news agency.

It cited an emergency military meeting convened by leader Kim Jong-un on Thursday in which he reportedly approved plans for striking U.S. and South Korean targets.

Kim's "important decision" is an ultimatum to "hostile forces" and a final decision for justice, added the statement.

Kimchi!

North Korea is doing it for the good...

of their country just like we do to other country's? why are we so shocked about it?

...

Sorry, I misposted

The US banking system shuddered at the thought

of the aggressive and hostile cyber attacks coming from North Korea. a spokesman for the banks stated Friday that the attacks have been pin pointed from somewhere inside Pyongyang and are from a Commodore 64 computer running on solar power, authorities attempted to send in special forces to seize the computer but found that by the time troops arrived the hacker and family had eaten the computer for substance.

Here we go again, another nation incapable of tying it's shoe is on the cross hairs of the hawks in Washington. The questions still remain how North Korea could have gained nuclear secrets considering that they are not allowed to leave their own borders, and the education system is lesser than that of the US?

Wars and rumors of wars.

This has all been foretold.

D.C. is fulfilling it's role nicely for prophecy.

I can't believe how immature

I can't believe how immature the comments have been on this post. The crowd at Daily Paul used to be more of a thoughtful and humble nature. It disappoints me that conversation about such serious topics such as war is being treated with locker room humor. I would hope that regardless of your thoughts about North Korea or South Korea that you at least take a second to put yourself in the shoes. What if it was your family on one of the sides of that border?

For those who have the more reasonable comments this isn't directed at you and props to you for furthering meaningful dialog on the topic.

One of the posts you are talking about

Was meant to be subversive and force people to think about mass deaths on a national scale.

If you've ever watched the Simpsons, South Park or Family Guy, you occasionally see those kind of over-the-top statements meant to do just the same.

Maybe N. Korea thinks it has an overpopulation problem

it needs to solve. War would solve it for them.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

If North Korea flew nuclear armed jets over Mexico

I'm sure our government would damn near crap themselves too.

Nuclear war with North Korea would kill more than North Koreans.
And remember that Japan and Israel are within their missile range.

Would only take a couple of nukes to utterly destroy Japan and Israel.

If the conflict spreads to China, it will reduce the global population to about 0.

Can you imgine

NK soldiers crossing into the South and seeing what is there? The food, the wealth. They would absolutely commit the most heinous of war crimes imo. The barbarism would see no limits. They have lived so meagerly and would confiscate as much as possible. Only chance would be to level most of the northern part of South Korea I think till any counter could kick in.

Heck, if I lived anywhere north of Seoul I would be packing my Hyundai up and my booze and and heading South.

PS Perhaps a good measure would be to lots of strip joints in northern SK to slow down the NK armies ;)

Why not they show porn like in some gold mines to pacify the workers. Afterall, they only have an expectancy of 5 years till their backs give out from what I hear.

Loot the place? They would

Loot the place? They would probably throw down their weapons defect en mass as they disappeared into the general populous.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I don't think

They would have that opportunity en masse , they would be shot.

WWII Soviet troops/hordes did a number on Germany, Poland, Czech, Hungary, etc when moving west and those that defected were sent back lol

donvino

I wouldnt think it likely

I wouldnt think it likely Jong Un is the man in charge. I think Jong-Il's beer buddies had already had a plan for what would go down after jong-il died.

I am so happy North Korea has

I am so happy North Korea has nukes. Seoul South Korea can be vaporized overnight.

Outstanding rhetorical statement Michael

You definitely opened a few eyes as to what is at stake in a nuclear exchange.

You should post on Fox News, wake a few sheeple ;)

I know folks there...

...that is pretty fucked up language there.

Why would you say that? I

Why would you say that? I hope you were being sarcastic. Do you know how many Americans are here? I am one of them.

Don't take this the wrong way

Don't take this the wrong way but I don't value American life anymore than the life of those in South Korea so while the original poster's comments were disturbing I don't really see your point. Perhaps you were trying to use a sense of nationalism or American exceptionalism to find common ground? Either way I find the original comment and the response distasteful in the same regard.

The comment was meant to

The comment was meant to disturb you. Now you see just how bad it can be. People better get their shit together so this doesn't happen.
So can Pyongyang North Korea be vaporized, for your information.

jong il wouldn.t restart war...

Which is why he was killed.

9-11 was a panda job.

Intelligent observation. And

Intelligent observation. And I bet it's correct.

To sum up what's going on...

You have maniacs from the US and South Korea playing nuclear war games on the border with North Korea, provoking maniacs in North Korea to rattle their saber, even though their saber isn't much more than a foam pool noodle.

Except "North" Korea doesn't

Except "North" Korea doesn't have maniacs.

If anything and filling in your description, North Korean's political members are reserved, mentally sharp and resolute. Its avoided war for, what, three decades or however many decades our media "reports" NK is trouble.

If reports about that half of Korea being dictatorial are true, that condition is from our government's involvement in that region, yielding Korea's break-up. Our government, long corrupted and seized, forced that half of Korea to close itself to outsiders, a method to retain what's left of Korea rather than befall the nature of its outsider-caused bottom half, a Zionist state.

Or, NK's political members aren't reserved, mentally sharp and resolute and they are playing the part Rothschild forced them to be: a tool for what they are -- a threat of war or the initiator of war.

In either case -- NK being resolute and otherwise or not -- NK is in one helluva position and I give respect to NK's politicians, whose aggression probably is Western propaganda.

Risk is war propaganda!

Reading your third paragraph made me realize that the game Risk is war propaganda: it helps convince young minds that "countries at war" is the natural state of events. I don't think I'll be playing that, any more. Thanks for the insight!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I didn't realize the Risk

I didn't realize the Risk connection. I didn't mean to make it. Wasn't aware of it. Now that you mentioned it, I see it. lol. Anyway, Happy Easter, 12:01. :)

"It added it would carry out

"It added it would carry out merciless retaliation in case of any provocative acts by the U.S. or South Korea."

Looks like they're going to wait to be attacked first.

The main danger is South

The main danger is South Korea's likely response to another clandestine attack by North Korea on one of South Korea's ships. South Korea is just itching for payback which could easily envelope the region into a wider war. Yep, these damned treaties will draw the USA into the fray, unfortunately.

didn't

this all start when the USA put sanctions on North Korea for their nuclear testing?
