    Everyone is saying a shooting war is unlikely, which means it is almost guaranteed.



    News in Korea is very loud about that sinking. The border is closing everywhere. The Norks nationalized a golf course (!?)on the east coast last week. all the peaceable moves of the last few years are being rescinded on both sides.

    Anyone want to make book on if the shooting starts, and when?

    Kim J Ill has not been looking too well lately. So glad we will soon have to deal with his son. What's that phrase? Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss.

    Well its quite a sensitive issue in the region and I think China has started talks with both sides and of course the US has always been trying to get some sort of deal going so I think its unlikely we will see any thing crazy happening over there.

    Agreed---A war in Korea benefits no one politically or economically. I expect a rather peaceful changing of the guard.

    I kind of hope we might get some improvement in the next generation of Kims. But when has that ever happened?

    I would thing even the Chinese are getting tired of him

    My son is in Korea and told me his commanding general spoke to his unit and he did mention the cheonan sinking and he said that we should understand that the korean people are feeling how we felt after 9/11, and he hopes nothing bad happens but that was about it.

    China's leader and Japan's PM are in Korea for talks. It sounds like even China is getting annoyed by North Korea.
