N. Korea voids non-aggression pacts with South



SEOUL–North Korea announced Friday it was voiding non-aggression pacts with South Korea and severing a hotline with Seoul, hours after the UN Security Council adopted tough new sanctions on Pyongyang.

North Korea “abrogates all agreements on non-aggression reached between the North and the South,” the state-run Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement.

“It notifies the South side that it will immediately cut off the North-South hotline,” said the statement, which was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

      they wont get far 2000 iraq tanks destroyed not one abrams was lost in a tank battle. and the iraq tanks were more modern types of the russian tank. when a russian tank was hit the turret ended up 100 meters away. plus there is always the apaches and warthogs. north korea is still using ww2 weapons.

        Actually no need to nuke them or use tank warfare. Hwag laang bigyan ng pagkain, pagutuman lalo na si dear leader (mukhang lamon laang ang alam) tiyak pag-tirik na ang mata sa gutom surrender na ang mga iyan.

       I hope they really do so that they can get the spanking they deserve for the longest time since before they sank a Sokor ship with a submarine.

    The North Korean nuclear missile may misfire and fall on China. Also, in a missile war, some missiles will miss their targets and hit China. Oops, poor China may be caught in the middle of nuclear war between North Korea and South Korea and allied forces including the US. Wonder what it would be like with China’s recent infrastructure. Probably, back to zero.

    • marienkind

       McArthur wanted to nuke China too.

      • tarikan

        Yung gagong Truman hindi pinayagan si Mac na pulbusin ang Tsina na siyang nag-udyok sa NoKor na salakayin ang SoKor. Sana malayang nangingisda ngayon ang mga Pinoy sa West PH Sea. Wala rin sanang nangongolekta ng revolutionary taxes ngayon. 

      • marienkind

         And the winds that carry the chinese cold would have carried the fallout of nuclear winter right at our doorstep. Nice thinking there.

  • tarikan

    Let the fireworks begin! Bombs away……BTW don’t give food to the North, let them starve and fight. Let’s see if they can sustain. 

  • Vertumnus

    Big deal!  They are still technically at war. The armistice of 1954 only stop hostilities, it was not a peace agreement between north and south.  Since 1954, it was North Korea who attacked South Korea, killings hundreds of their citizens.  The only country that have their entire population brainwashed to believe that their “Dear Leader” is a god.  Just  look how fat the leadership of the politboro, they are practically obese compared to the general population.  They live high on a hog but starve their own people to death. Complain and you end up in their re-education camp which is essentially a death camp because you go in, but you never come out.

    If war breaks….say bye bye to the upcoming S4. XD

  • roy roy

    If there’s a war within a few months South Korea will win and the peninsula will be unified. A unified Korea can easily be an economic powerhouse third only to US and China, neck to neck with Japan.

    Let the war begin…..

  • Simplify1

    No more armistice? Excellent!  SK should make a pre-emptive strike on all nuke centres of NK.  Surely, if China, the biggest benefactor of NK agrees that NK “crossed the line”, it would mean that NK “really crossed the line”!  Attacking NK Nuke sites using smart bomb/conventional weapons will minimize casualty but can eliminate the nuke threat once and for all…

    Simplified, once NK is defeated, a unified korea plus a solid japan can make the china bully think twice before intimidating its neighbors…
