    There is supposed to be a joint navy-marines exercise going on right now anyway. A battleship would mean nothing in Korea. A pair of Aircraft carriers suddenly activated, that would be a story

    these exercises are run on a regular schedule every six months or so. North Korea has decided to regard each of them as a provocation over the last two years.

    South Korea is really big on Civil Defense drills. the whole city of Seoul shuts down for half an hour on the first tuesday of the month as they practice setting up evacuation drills.

    Daddy Kim trying to show sonnyboy how tough he is. North Korea doesn't have a pot to piss in. China won't put up with this crap much longer because they don't want millions of refugees spilling over the border. Between the South Korean army, backed by American air and sea power, it would be all over in less than 24 hours if that were the chosen strategy. But NK will bury itself first, and it won't need to come to that.

    Dunno about that.

    But it is my hope that he's like Franco's son and secretly interested in reform.

    And that Il Jung meets his eternal reward very soon.

    North Korea to China is like Mexico to the United States. Except they have more leeway with kicking out North Koreans.

    Correction.....just saw on CNN that an Aircraft Carrier is headed in the direction of Korea right now, although they did mention that there is a scheduled training exercise planned.
    An aircraft carrier seems a little large for that kind of exercise....no?
