CBS News: “North Korea may be making good on some threats”-You don’t say…

South Korea Koreas Clash

Western media have finally started taking more seriously the situation developing in the Korean Peninsula, even though still not seriously enough. US and the Souths have started the already announced military drills despite the rallying of citizens, which protest against the exercises they fear they would spark an all out war with the Norths.

There are also a couple of other things North Korea proceeded with, which make the situation even gloomier. Pyongyang cut the last communication line between the North and the South, that is a telephone line used when the South wants to communicate with the North, as there are no diplomatic ties to do so otherwise. So, today they were calling at 9 am, but the Norths were not picking up the phone, they were probably “singing Lady Gaga’s song as well, stop telephoning me”, as nobody and especially the new President of South Korea, whose actions are identical to Golda Meir’s before the Yom Kippur War, took the threats seriously.

The US responded to the nuclear threats that they are fully capable of defending themselves, without going into trouble to think for a second that perhaps the Norths know that as well, but their point is to provoke the US to respond even if they have to launch a “jar of marmalade” mounted on a projectile. Why? Because we have already analyzed the situation here.

There’s more to it! Japanese media cited a story taken from North Korea’s party newspaper, whereby it was announced that the Armistice of 1953 is no longer in effect.

From our side, we believed we have covered the story adequately, driven more by fear of the potential sequences, which we acknowledge and understand fully, a trait which does not seem to be shared by all the parties involved in the crisis. Better be safe than sorry and as things are now we are more afraid that: “…you can call all you want but there’s noone home and you’re not gonna reach my telephone…”!!!
