Well, well, well.

Seriously damaged does not sound like such a good performance.

The papers on the other side probably ready to report the opposite: "Our glorious warship returned unscathed. The southern enemy's boat was seriously damaged and half-sunk."

The North Korean ship was seriously damaged in the skirmish while the South Korean ship was unscathed

NK's entire economy is based on illegal drugs, counterfeit money and acting like a baby to get money and assistance from other countries.

Very timely, given that the US and Japan are about to discuss relocation, and given the fear that the Japanese feel for NK. They'll probably think a wee bit harder about their demands (the J-side, I mean).

As for SK and NK, I'm glad no one was reported killed (we of course don't know about NK casualties). Seems like a 'minor' skirmish, and I hope it ends there.

Probably the USS Pueblo (AGER 2)...

Maybe Kim was having a control crisis and needed to produce a couple of corpses to shore up support.

Up, Up the South Korean Navy! Doubtless, though the North Koreans won't learn their lesson....

North Korea's Kim Jong IL is a LIAR!! Anyone stupid enough to believe what North Korea says has yet to learn the lesson in the hard way..North Korea is full of non-sense..I'd advise wise people DON'T TRUST Kim Jong IL(Kimmy)..He wants to spark another war in Korea and maim South Korean economy..

And fat,ugly Kimmy wants Seoul to break up ties with Washington so that U.S.Army will leave Korea and start World War III starting with North Korean missiles hitting targets like Seoul & Tokyo..U.S. pullout will give Kimmy a freer hand in dealing with Seoul..Sometimes I wish the U.S.Air Force bomb those nuclear sites without hurting Korean people on either sides of DMZ..

It's about time 2 Koreas reunify and help U.S. find some relief that there is no reason for Americans to fight another Korean War in vain..This Korean division still continues today and is very tragic for all Koreans wherever they live..Germany unified 20 years ago so why not the same for 2 Koreas???

This must be a preview of Iris. But T.O.P. is on it as far as I understood.

I guess the North Koreans couldn't get their catapult to work. If I had to guess the South is probably better armed. So much for the sunshine policy.
