    They should have just left MacArthur alone :roll:

    No, its not WWIII it is the never ending war between N. Korea and S. Korea. It is still a war because peace was never established (just a truce).

    Cooler heads will prevail. Obviously, there's some communication issues.

    <still murkey about who fired first or the source of origin for aggression...could S. Korea because it's been claimed they did test shots or were holding military exercise...hold the phone on calling up troops>

    Well, they were still at war but they ceased fire decades ago. It's nothing new. Although the government of South Korea did say there would be consequences... we'll have to wait and see.

    World War III? Well, that's jumping the gun.

    SK notified NK about military test drill. NK fired about 100 rounds. SK fired back with about 80 rounds.

    IMO - SK shouldn't have fired back at all. They should exercise with extreme restraint and let the world do the scorning and finger-pointing at NK for an act of aggression.

    source please? couldn't find anything short and sweet like what you wrote...

    SK shouln't have fired back...you're right about that...but I'm curious what happened between

    "SK notifed NK about military test drill." And "NK fired about 100 rounds".

    I wonder what the rules of conducting a military test drill are...and whether S. Korea/N. Korea violated them or the test conditions... and/or fired first?

    I always lol at some SK politicians screaming for retaliation or similar harsher action. It's just a tiny minority of political party with extremist view but unfortunately influential. It's no different from Zionists who constantly pushes for ironfist strategy on Palestine.

    influence of politicians are different from each country because they may have different systems of representation. In US two major parties. France...like 20 minor but almost all "equally" represented.

    It only take a few influential, loud-spoken politicians to rouse up some feathers. It's very easy for them to take advantage of any incidents like this by painting other politicians as "unpatriotic" or "weak coward" for acting with restraint and they baited n' trolled them into launching war out of fear of being out of job by election.

    Remember what Swift Boat veterans did to John Kerry? yea that cost him an election big time.

    I feel sorry for SK President being forced to take hard stance on it just to appease angry people. :roll:

    however.... the current SK President Lee Myung-Bak is the worst. He has a nickname - RAT since his face looks like a rat. The allegation was said that he had the previous SK President killed. My mom cried when she heard the sudden news about former SK President Roh Moo-Hyun suddenly committing suicide. He was a very very good president... the only president in decades to ever visit NK.

    Most Korean people including my parents can't wait for Lee Myung-Bak to leave. He's extremely corrupted. He makes Kennedy Assassination looks like a classic Halloween story.... and he makes Bush/Cheney looks like a copycat. When President Lee arrived at former President Roh's funeral.... nobody stood up for him out of respect. They faced away from him. They knew Lee was involved in Roh's death.

    Embarrassing.

    Doesn't help to have a President such as this residing over this conflict isn't as even-keeled as the prior President. I heard good things about the previous Pres. and bad things about the current Pres. I sincerely hope that changes and peace ensues.

    Here's to multi-lateral talks.

    nope.... nope.... I don't know when his term expires but I hope anytime soon!!! He's caused nothing but trouble. At the same time - he's made a certain group of companies and people extremely rich.

    What's your definition of a world war?

    Is it currently happening?

    Countries do "suspicious" behavior all the time. I'm not sure what you mean by "Asia started to sending 36k soldiers"...Not sure why this would be relevant in determining an increased risk of a "world war". There's a lot we (the public) don't know...so let's hope the information is flowing between the decision-makers and not making bad decisions on imperfect information.
