    Probably won't make it to TV unless the US gets involved, or until more is known, definitely not on TV right now for me anyways

    I hope SK stands up for itself this time. The way they handled the ship sinking (or how they didn't handle it) pissed me off.

    Like I said, the US is involved. 60,000 US Soldiers are deployed there, on top of the SK forces.

    It's too late for new stories to be popped on. It was on CNN briefly but it was just a feed from some overseas station.

    why is this not on any news channel. it seems like big enough news to be reported on for more then 5 secs
    Because it's not big news because this shit always happens. Something similar happened like last month, I remember reading about it here. It's just going to die out in like a day. Don't get excited.

    This is some pretty big shit going down right now, suffice to say. It could develop into something bigger (Not WW3 you shitheads), but North Korea is really, really pushing it right now.

    The difference is, this injured civilians and soldiers. Countries usually don't let that shit slide.

    Yeah but this is bigger, seeing as how the attack has killed civvies and destroyed actual property. Usually it's just like the torpedo incident

    If NK really wanted to do damage, they woulda shelled Seoul instead. I really don't see this going anywhere quick.

    That was around 7-9 months ago, and they couldn't prove that North Korea did it on purpose. This is an entirely different situation.

    Okay, this happened two hours ago. I think nothing else will happen now, because it wouldn't make strategic sense to let the South Koreans become alert of an attack, you'd do everything instantly.

    This is just more dick waving, but this time I think NK went maybe too far, especially since civilian houses were hit.

    I think you've greatly overestimated the range capabilities of artillery.

    There are some heavier mortars, especially rocket mortars that are over 100mm in caliber.

    NK has hundreds of guns capable of hitting Seoul from the border.

    Mortars are artillery.

    Just usually light artillery, but heavy/siege mortars do exist.
