Now we have that idiot who runs a country where 66% of the population is starving firing off more missiles (even after China gave him a dressing down earlier this month for test firing a missile in front of a Chinese airliner).

North Korea has test fired 30 missiles into the sea.

NORTH Korea test-fired 30 short-range missiles into the sea on Saturday, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said, the latest in a series of launches that have provoked criticism from Seoul and Washington.

“North Korea fired off 30 short-range missiles between 4:00am and 6:10am (1900-2110 GMT Friday) this morning from its east coast into the Sea of Japan (East Sea),” said a spokesman for the Joint Chiefs.

“The missiles are estimated to have flown about 60 kilometres (37 miles),” he added.


Personally I think that this world is just breeding far to many idiots these days. :-(

Cheers.

He has an extremely bad habit of eliminating his chiefs of staff, his family and his ex-girlfriends.

Quite correct, there should be an international law banning it.

North Korea is at it again, but this time South Korea retaliated.

http://www.news.com.au/world/asia/north-and-south-korea-trade-fire-across-maritime-border/story-fnh81fz8-1226869962318

The two Koreas have traded hundreds of rounds of live artillery fire across their disputed maritime border, forcing South Korean islanders to take shelter a day after the North drove up tensions by threatening a new nuclear test.

The exchange yesterday, triggered by a three-hour North Korean live-fire exercise that dropped shells into South Korean waters, was limited to untargeted shelling into the sea, military officials said.

South Korea’s defence ministry said the North fired some 500 shells during the drill, around 100 of which landed on the south side of the sea boundary.


It seems that that idiot Kim Jong-un wants to provoke a war.

Cheers.

Meh, didn't they drive up the tensions last year around this time as well?

They drive up tensions all the time, I think its more as a show towards North Korean citizens than it is to actually start a war.

Not so much the 'North Korean citizens', in my opinion. More like 'North Korean military leadership'... Them, and some other members of his family. There are those in North Korea that kind of question his... suitability for the position. So, he must do these periodic 'shows of force' in order to silence his critics, as it were.

Seems that Kim Jong-un has been working on another new low.

http://www.news.com.au/world/north-korea-executes-official-with-flamethrower/story-fndir2ev-1226877334272

A NORTH Korean official has reportedly been executed by flamethrower, as part of an apparent purge against supporters of Kim Jong-un’s uncle.

Jang Song-tank was killed by the regime in December after it accused him of corruption and disloyalty. Since then as many as 11 senior party officials have been killed or sent to prison camps, the UK Telegraph said.

The Telegraph cited a report in South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper saying that O Sang-hon, a deputy minister at the Ministry of Public Security, was “executed by flamethrower.”


No cheers for him.

Geez, after having some executed by putting them on a field and have mortars blast him to pieces and supposedly feeding his uncle to a bunch of hungry dogs, the only way he could get any more like a Bond villain is if he has chairs that can be dumped into a tank full of sharks or something.

Not so much any more. NK is desperate for hard currency; this could be Kim's final days in the Fuhrerbunker. China-Korea Tensions Rise After Failed Venture The only use China has for NK is to keep the US off its boarder. Much like their annexation of Tibet to keep India off their boarder.

I must say after 9/11 the US hardened boarder. This is how the egg thrower got in no doubt.

Agree. except for "Kim's final days".

There have been, and are, many situations where these types of 'Leaders' remain power, despite economic collapse.

Amplifying upon China. They 'made the Kim's', for their own needs, and is the only one who can stop this 'problem'.

That made disturbing reading :( Will it make any difference do you think? I mean... they only seem to care about a hairdresser's ad campaign. Sometimes I think the UN needs to be given teeth... sharp pointy ones - though of course, there'll always be someone vetoing them into the steradent...

Exactly what type of 'sharp pointy teeth'?

Had to lookup "steradent" :)

It has teeth. Its just that with the veto power of the permanent members they can almost never agree to anything.

Also, I doubt sanctions work. Who do you think gets hit hardest by economic and political sanctions? The regime? Or the people living in North Korea? If you really want to help them, you either leave them be and wait until the regime collapses at some point, or you invade the place, arrest and execute everyone who was part of the regime and rebuild the country from the ground up again. But good luck getting China and Russia to agree to that last option.

China - Russia agree?

If China (the only Country with the power to Invade, and Secure North Korea) believes it's in their Essential National Interest, they will do whatever they believe they need to do.

NO Country, under these circumstances, will care what Russia, The UN, or another entity wishes, or Legally allows.
