War With Norh Korea


Mon Mon

SEOUL, South Korea (March 2) - North Korea warned Sunday of ''nuclear disasters'' around the world if Washington attacks the communist state, while its civilian leaders urged greater cooperation between Pyongyang and Seoul to ease the crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

The North's official Rodong Sinmun newspaper accused the Central Intelligence Agency of preparing a surprise attack on the nation's nuclear facilities that are suspected of being used to make atomic bombs.

''If the U.S. imperialists ignite a war on the Korean Peninsula, the war will turn into a nuclear war,'' Rodong said. ''As a consequence, the Koreans in the north and south and the people in Asia and the rest of the world will suffer horrifying nuclear disasters.''

The report, carried by the North's state-run KCNA news agency, claimed that Washington put its forces around the peninsula on ''semi-war footing'' and ''is pushing ahead with nuclear war preparations in full swing.''

Pyongyang accuses Washington of inciting the nuclear standoff as a pretext for an invasion. Washington has repeatedly said it has no plans to attack North Korea, but stresses that ''all options are on the table.''

In Seoul on Sunday, North Korea's religious and civic leaders took part in inter-Korean religious masses and urged greater cooperation between the two Koreas.

''Preventing war through national cooperation is the most urgent task of the nation,'' said Ri Mun Hwan, a senior North Korean delegate. ''If war breaks out, the South cannot be safe and the entire nation will face disaster.''

Another delegate, Oh Kyung Woo, said the ''United States is threatening a nuclear war, but if war breaks out both South and North will incur damages,'' according to South Korea's national Yonhap news agency.

''Foreign forces will never give us reunification. We must cooperate with each other,'' Oh was quoted as saying.

The comments were made during religious masses at a cathedral, a church, a Buddhist temple and other religious locations, which were attended by thousands of South Koreans.

The ceremonies were a part of an inter-Korean festival to mark the anniversary of a major independence uprising against Japanese colonial rule on March 1, 1919.

Pyongyang sent 105 delegates to Seoul on Saturday for the three-day festival. Both Koreas mark the uprising as a major holiday. Japan ruled the peninsula from 1910 to 1945.

Rodong, monitored by South Korea's national Yonhap news agency, reiterated that the North's nuclear activities were ''strictly for peaceful purposes and poses no threat to anyone.''

''Crushing the U.S. plot to attack North Korea is a very important issue related to peace and safety of Asia and the world, the existence and future of mankind,'' Rodong said.

Raising tensions last week, North Korea test-fired a missile into the sea off its east coast. Pyongyang also reactivated a 5-megawatt reactor that could produce plutonium for nuclear weapons, U.S. and South Korean officials said.

On Saturday, North Korea said nuclear war could break out on the peninsula at ''any moment,'' after South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun warned of a ''calamity'' unless the standoff is resolved peacefully and quickly.

The dispute flared in October when Washington said North Korea had admitted pursuing a nuclear program, which violated a 1994 pact.

Washington and its allies cut off oil shipments to the impoverished communist state. The North responded by saying it would reactivate its frozen facilities. It also expelled U.N. monitors and withdrew from the global Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

This is a Terrifying Idea a Nuclear War.


As N. Korea is actually Red China's bastard child, I would have hoped that the PRC would have slapped some sense into them by now.

Since the end of the Korean War, N. Korea has been spoiling for a fight. I applaud President Bush and his allies for responding in a very mature and open manner to the N. Koreans and their immature behavior.

I believe that the U.S. will do all it can to resolve this problem without a military conflict. But if the little bastards start a fight, I say we turn the whole damned place into a glowing parking lot for Japan.


Unfortunately, the situation in North Korea is being propagated by the demented leadership of Kim Jung Il.

His people are starving and freezing to death...but he pumps every dollar he makes from missile sales into his military machine.
Truth is, if he is to fight a war, it has to go nuclear because he doesn't have enough money to by bullets for his guns...(remember a similar situation in the old Soviet Union, just before it crumbled).

The only well-fed people in the country are the military and the politicians.

Kim is just paranoid enough to launch a Nuke on the South, or Japan, or Hawaii, or the US West Coast...I think his most recent threats stem from the fact that he is getting less attention than Saddam Hussein...he's like a spoiled child who throws a tantrum to get attention.

But, he is also very dangerous.

Well, I'm going to tell you that I haven't been following this stuff that much. The only thing that caught my eye was on yahoo's home page a few days ago saying the U.S., South Korea, & China were going to bomb the N. Korean nuclear plant if they decide to go ahead and reopen the plant.
If you have issues with the subject that is fine you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I personally don't have much of one other than I hope our president here does the right things as well as getting much needed support with his cabinet members on the situation. At this point in my life and times that are upon us I believe you just need to protect your own yard. One last thing is that I couldn't figure out where you were located and if that had any bearing on your opinion with this issue. After the 3rd of 4th city you lost my interest.:asian:
