    http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/asiapc...rea.survivors/

    Anyone have any information on this event? Incheon was attacked by the North Koreans, basically violating the 50 year old cease fire signed when the Korean war ended in 1953. Seeing as how some of our own TGer were stationed near or on the DMZ, this hit fairly close to home. I wonder what will happen.

    Actually DPRK attacked the island near Incheon, not the port city directly. If they did, war would have been inevitable.

    Most likely what will happen is the same old: UN Security Council will condemn the attack and leave at that. I am kind of hoping to see South Korea's president show more backbone and actually retaliate against North Korea for once to show the North Koreans and their crazy leader Kim Jong-Il that there can be serious consequences for attacking civilians like that.

      North Korea sunk a South Korean warship this past March.

      The South Korean Prime Minister has resigned over this recent attack, IIRC.

          The defense minister was forced to resign due to his response to the situation and not acting accordingly. They did return fire but I have not seen any pictures of the damage or where the South Korean arty rounds landed. In my opinion he acted smart and prevented any additional fighting. The two sides are still at war and so I find it funny when you read headlines like "BRINK OF WAR". I do believe the two sides are still at war but had called an armistace to any fighting.

          Not sure what China would do if fighting did ramp up. They do not want N.K. completely destroyed as it put's a democratic nation on their border, but they can't just engage in war either. Their economy depends on ours and I think that if anything happens any work that came to them via the US would immediatly go away. China isn't saving any money right now as any cash they get is spent right away and so if the check's stop coming in how would they support such a massive industrial sector? Not sure if many people know but Russia has also stopped supplying China with engine replacements and updates to the AAA equipment. It happened some time ago but the Chinese are good at reverse engineering but that cost's a lot more then just paying the Russian's for spare parts.

          If China does do anything I think the wild card would be India. The two have been known to be competitors and may be called upon to act as an Ally and jump in to help.

          I will probably catch some flakt for my opinions but it's how I am seeing things.

            Say hello to George Washington....

            BEIJING – This weekend's arrival of a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Yellow Sea poses a dilemma for Beijing: Should it protest angrily and aggravate ties with Washington, or quietly accept the presence of a key symbol of American military pre-eminence off Chinese shores?

            The USS George Washington, accompanied by escort ships, is to take part in military drills with South Korea following North Korea's shelling of a South Korean island Tuesday that was one of the most serious confrontations since the Korean War a half-century ago.

            It's a scenario China has sought to prevent. Only four months ago, Chinese officials and military officers shrilly warned Washington against sending a carrier into the Yellow Sea for an earlier set of exercises. Some said it would escalate tensions after the sinking of a South Korean navy ship blamed on North Korea. Others went further, calling the carrier deployment a threat to Chinese security.

              North Korea Will Never Play Nice (by B.R. Myers, the director of the international studies department at Dongseo University, is the author of “The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves — and Why It Matters.”)

              There is no easy solution to the North Korea problem, but to begin to solve it, we must realize that its behavior is aggressive, not provocative, and that its aggression is ideologically built in. Pyongyang is thus virtually predestined to push Seoul and Washington too far, thereby bringing about its own ruin.
