As a result, some believe the current situation may be more dangerous than the usual Korean brinkmanship. The South Korean Defence Ministry said yesterday that it anticipates a "limited clash" with North Korean forces either along the 1953 ceasefire line or along the disputed sea boundary, possibly about the same time as the planned North Korean missile launch.

He sure manages to come up with colorful titles, that "dear" Kim. I can't believe China props up that regime, how can the Chinese leadership be so evil? Oh yes, they are commies, I forgot. So I bet they keep NK as their insurance policy in case they ever decide to nuke Japan they will proxy it through their highly expendable north korean hostages.

It is utterly ridiculous that the situation is allowed to exist there!

NoKo is making a big mistake by threatening Japan. Right now, Japan insists on being a pacifist state, but it is armed to the teeth and is fully capable of kicking NoKo's ass. It would be a very bad thing for NoKo if they were to do anything to change Japan's pacifist attitude.

I don't trust the Kim Jong Il. I think he's up to something really evil. George W Bush was extremely right include that madman in the Axis. He starves his own people, put them in giant death camps if they stray from their village without the proper papers, has nukes and is a proxy state for the commies.

How do you deal with such an inhumane and inherently evil regime, how do you deny it the ability to inflict death and destruction on the free peoples of the West? Heck some of his nuclear missiles now reach Vancouver and Califonia, and they are still working on even longer missiles that could also reach the east coast.

Yeah, he's definitely not a good person.

However, I don't think he has some sinister plot other than trying to get free money and supplies from richer nations to bolster his dictatorship.What I think is that Kim is completely incompetent, and is surrounded by yes men feeding his illusion of grandeur. China won't let them do much more than saber rattling. Most of their missile/nuclear tests have gone to hell, missiles explode, can't reach their targets, etc.

I could be wrong, but I worry more about the humanitarian side of his madness, and It's the nuclear technology getting out of NoKo that I'm worried the most about! The only threat Kim J poses is to his own people, and maybe to good people in the south.

I hope you are right! We will find out one way or another, within the next 5 years! Because he is old and more and more people think he's already dead.

In any event, check this out:

New North Korean Missile Bases Target US Military In Japan

by Staff Writers
Seoul (AFP) Aug 03, 2006
North Korea has been building new underground missile bases along its east coast, targeting Japan and US military facilities in Japan, a report said Thursday. Some 200 Rodong missiles with a range of up to 2,200 kilometers (1,360 miles) and 50 SSN-6 missiles with ranges of 2,500 to 4,000 kilometers are at the new bases, the state-run Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security (IFANS) said in the report carried by Yonhap news agency.

"The new bases clustered along the east coastal line are for medium- and long-range missiles targeting Japan and US military bases in Japan," read the report by Yun Deok-Min, an IFANS arms control expert.

"Combined with its nuclear weapons, North Korea's ballistic missiles provides it with a powerful deterrent."

North Korea has also constructed new underground missile bases deep in mountains near its border with China, to avoid outside attacks, it said.

The communist nation set off new alarm bells in the region with its July 5 test-firing of seven ballistic missiles which splashed in the Sea of Japan (East Sea). In 1998, it test-launched a missile over Japan.

The UN Security Council unanimously condemned the latest missile tests and adopted a resolution imposing weapons-related sanctions on Pyongyang.

North Korea is said to have a large stockpile of short-range Scuds and medium-range Rodong missiles. It has also tested long-range Taepodong missiles which are in theory capable of hitting US soil.

Sales of missiles and missile technology were believed to be a main source of hard currency for impoverished North Korea, the report said.

North Korea has earned 150 million dollars a year from its missile business, according to the report which cited no sources.

Pyongyang has allegedly sold a total of 500 Scuds to Iran, Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Yemen; a small number of Scuds also to Vietnam and Sudan; and 50-100 Rodong missiles to Iran, Pakistan and Libya, it added.

A Scud missile is said to sell for two million dollars, a Rodong for four million dollars, and a Taepodong-2, the most advanced type, is expected to sell at around 20 million dollars, it said.

Nort Korea is locked in a standoff with the United States and its allies over its nuclear weapons development which Pyongyang says is for self-defense.

Pyongyang's official Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Thursday warned against Japan's recent US-backed military buildup which it said "is aimed to mount a preemptive attack" on North Korea.

"The Japanese reactionaries had better behave with discretion, bearing in mind that reinvasion of Korea is as foolish an act as jumping into fire with (a) faggot on one's back," Rodong said.

Japan invaded Korea in 1910 and occupied it until the end of World War II in 1945.
