It was a clear provocation!!!
Report: N. Korea fires on S. Korea, injuring at least 6 - CNN.com
north Korea will soon collapse under the weight of its own criminal and incompetent regime, and the south will have to pick up the pieces of whatever's left. I only hope the thugs running the abomination known as the People's Republic of Korea have the minimum amount of class required to go out alone, and not try to take any innocents with them. The sooner they go, the better for the civilized world.
This is serious. Bases were attacked and people have been killed. Fighters have been scrambled. It's not the 3am call that Hillary talked about but it's close enough. Here is a link with pictures of the shelling and it looks bad.
Scroll down in thread for pics and this thread has good sources:
N. Korea fires artillery towards S. Korean island, official says(houses destroyed, fire broke out)
North Korea fired dozens of artilley shells at the South Korea island of Yeonpyeong, off the west coast of the Korean peninsula.
Dozens of houses are on fire after the shelling and the South Korea military is now trying to determine the degree of damage.
Yeonpyeong is burning up in flames right now.
The North has continuously carried out provocative actions against South Korea, but an outright artilley shelling is unprecedented Basically, a wartime provocation has now occurred in Yeonpyeong.
South Korean military has returned fire abiding by the engagement rules, and is now analyzing the North's motives.
Why the North carried out such an action is irrelevant now.
The important issue is that North Korea intentionally carried out an organized attack.
This might be a warning against the South Korean military's "Hoguk" training, which started yesterday.
However, firing artilley shells against the Sough during midday is clearly an act of war.
North Korea must take responsibility for this action and the global community, along with South Korea, should seek effective retaliation measures.
