    I think they perceive us as weak and are testing us. Much like Khrushchev did wit JFK after the bay of Pigs.

    I think the jury is still out on who fired first.

    I also think that the joint military exercises underway between S. Korea and the US are ill-advised - N. Korea's president is a sick old man with nothing to lose - winding him up could provoke a response that would have appalling repercussions.

    Lets all keep our fingers crossed and hope that sanity prevails.

    Torn........each person, each community, each nation should be allowed its voice.

    Let those think "this" live "there"
    Those who think " that" live "here".........

    In such a modern world that we live in, the boundaries are often crossed........even despite, the individual thinking.

    I have no great political mind............and I mistrust those who say that they do......................where does that leave me?...among the Koreans.........the Veitmanese, the Kurds....the Afghans.......among a sea of voices.....

    For my nation.......I want a strong voice and representation......I expect the same from others, to think that.

    Let us put up our fists?

    North Korea is desperate to achieve recognition in the international community. But it has no idea how to do this. So it uses bullying tactics to get attention. This is not unlike the neighborhood bully who uses fists to get noticed. Trouble is, NK isn't grown up enough to engage in civil conversation; and it refuses to take its meds.
       It's been said that Jong-il's two elder sons wanted to erase the border and attempt conciliation. But the youngest, baby-faced Jong-un, said he would carry on. Were the recent shellings done with China's knowledge? That would be a scary thought. But the only way this stalemate will end is with an internal, civil takeover of the NK government. And this transition of power is the perfect time to do it. The two elder sons might be persuaded to open the gates that would allow in the Trojan horse. It appears the aging NK military force has had enough. And the people, some say, are ready to support a takeover.
