Big talk but no action

in a tit-for-tat response

Let's see if either side is grown up enough to NOT play this tit-for-tag game...

The uptick started largely after the Yoon administration took power and adopted an aggressive/antagonistic approach to the North.

The uptick started largely after the Yoon administration took power and adopted an aggressive/antagonistic approach to the North.

If you're referring to North Korean hostility, that was there even under the Moon administration and it's appeasement policy.

Ossan predictably way off the mark again.

The article states, North Korea has fired dozens of missiles as it increased its weapons demonstrations to a record pace this year, including multiple tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile system potentially capable of reaching deep into the U.S. mainland, and an intermediate-range missile launched over Japan.

North Korea has also conducted a series of short-range launches it described as simulated nuclear attacks on South Korean and U.S. targets in an angry reaction to an expansion of joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises that North Korea views as rehearsals for a potential invasion.

Nothing approaching that occurred under the Moon administration. This article is emphasizing the increased recent activity of the North, and there are definite reasons for it.

@Legrande DO you consider N Korea artillery firings over South's drills as being a definite reasons for doing so? If there is was a agreement between the two countries then what is the "Definite reason behind the missiles besides the fat dough boy trying to get attention and trying to FORCE negotiating economic and security concessions from a position of strength and force to get the United States to accept it as a nuclear power. If that is the case he better lose weight first because it is not going to happen. Firing missiles is not the reason for response of the Souths drills we know what the fat boy wants and that is a keito diet!!!

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said those North Korean shells fired fell within the northern side of buffer zones created under a 2018 inter-Korean agreement to reduce military tensions and urged the North to abide by the agreement.

Nothing approaching that occurred under the Moon administration. This article is emphasizing the increased recent activity of the North, and th*ere are **definite reasons for it***.**

One doesn’t want to go “tit-for-tat” with a guy with Kim’s set of moobs.

That aside, this is in no way the South’s responsibility and efforts to blame Yoon for the current tensions have no basis in objective reality. This is what the DORK does. They ratchet up the tens with every new administration. If it works, great. If it doesn’t, they back down and behave.

For so very many years North Korea has nuclear-threatened the world. Why can't the United Nations do anything about this criminal nation?

Poor Sea.

If anyone had been paying attention they would have noted that in late October/early November the Yoon admin. conducted round the clock simulated attacks on NK with the US-

The allies have been conducting one of the largest air exercises ever, with hundreds of South Korean and U.S. warplanes, including F-35 fighters, staging around-the-clock simulated missions.

If South Korea simply let the North take over, would the North Collapse ?

Kim wastes billions of dollars on NK's military, while the North Korean people go hungry, and lack basic necessities, like electricity.
