North Korea Warns Of War If Punished For Ship Sinking

North Korea warns that it will wage "all-out war" if punished for the sinking of a South Korean warship.

Investigators in Seoul said today that evidence proves a North Korean submarine fired a torpedo that sank a South Korean naval ship on March 26.

North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency quoted a spokesman from the National Defense Commission as refuting the findings as a "fabrication." The report says Pyongyang will react to any punishment or sanctions with warfare.

The White House is calling the sinking of a South Korean warship by North Korea an act of aggression that constitutes a challenge to international peace and security.

    I agree with most of what has been said already. "Same old, same old" post earlier hit the nail on the head. North Korea usually pulls some stunt to get money, food, or whatever they want by threating to wage war. It has been going on for a very long time. They are suffering economically-they want money and supplies. And yes, we should be concerned. We have many troops fighting in the middle east and troops stationed in the far east (including my son).

    Marine conversation...actual conversation overheard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai: Iranian Air Defense Site: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.' Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.' Air Defense Site: 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!' Aircraft: 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!' Air Defense Site: ( .... total silence) God bless our troops.

    This is not just South Koreas problem. This whole mess is a by-product of our war against Japan in WWII. Russia agreed to help us against Japan 6 months after Germany was defeated. When Japan surrendered, Russia had moved into North Korea and we split the country into 2 parts. If we had asked Russia to stay out of the conflict instead of helping us, there would be no North Korea today. We can not walk away from the problem, and it is not South Koreas alone.
