North Korea Declares ‘State of War’ with South, Netizens React

north-korean-single-hearted-unity-tank-runs-over-lee-myung-bak-and-us-soldier

A day after ‘accidentally’ releasing a map showing a plan of attack on the US mainland, North Korea this morning said North-South Korean relations were now in a ‘state of war’, and all provocations would be dealt with on these terms from now on.

Netizens have reacted with a mixture of apathetic disbelief, and genuine concern for the current state of affairs. Whilst the prospect of imminent war on the peninsula is currently dominating world headlines, the atmosphere in South Korea is normal, and the soju is flowing.

Need to keep an eye on this. It’s clearly not a statement made in jest. It’s possible they’d attack us.

This is not the time for us to be idle. Don’t forget how 6.25 [The 1950-53 Korean War] started. If this wasn’t serious, it wouldn’t be continuously broadcast on global news like this. If war breaks out, it will both reduce North Korea to ruins and take its toll on South Korea. From our grandparents’ to our parents’ generation, they all quivered at the very thought of war. Considering the current situation, whereby our allies are also nervous, South Koreans shouldn’t take these threats lightly. Let’s learn the lesson of the Korean War, where we suffered a blow due to our lack of vigilance. We shouldn’t be terrified, but we definitely should be vigilant.

Isn’t this really serious right now? We need to change our view towards the lefties who call for withdrawal of the US Army; the breakup of ROK-US Combined Forces Command; the abolition of the National Security Act; the carrying out of the 6.15 North-South joint declaration and 10.4 declaration; giving cash to North Korea; getting rid of mines from the DMZ and moving artillery to the South as claimed by Moon Jae-in; the opposition of North Korean Human Rights Act; the nullification of the NLL [Northern Limit Line], and the opposition of the building of a naval base in Jeju.

What would happen if Moon [Jae-in] was elected as a president in this mess? It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it…….. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

What’s wrong with all the comments here? Are they all by commies? Don’t forget how the Korean war happened. We always have to be ready for war. Don’t feel apathetic towards it. Listen, you students who think there’ll be no war: us old folks will protect our countries, so you guys just don’t try to be easy on the situation and say there will be no war, just because North Korea hasn’t shut down the Kaesong Industrial Complex.

We were already in a state of war, idiots

During last year’s military reserve training, one of the lecturers said a certain security exists to prevent a war from happening. This guy fought in Vietnam, [many South Koreans fought alongside Americans during the Vietnam War] and he said he never ever wants to see those scenes again because it was too awful – it was hell. Why, then, are there so many people online who want war? If they think inciting people to have a war is how to protect national security, they have a serious problem with their thinking.

    The North Korean government is delusional. They believe they are more powerful than they actually are. The North Korean men are puny, compared to South Korean males. They have a small physical stature and necks that look like they could snap like a twig. China isn’t happy with the nuclear testing in their backyard. If one nuke flies across the ocean, the united states will wipe North Korea’s surface clean. Which is unfortunate for the civilians and very sad. Simply put, the North Koreans lack the technological advantage that would allow them to devastate their enemies.

    They are like an army of children facing an army of tanks with rocks and slingshots.

    This North Korean has maintained such a state of control over its people that they think they can use that power on the rest of the world. South Korea prepare yourself. Attack is imminent and will befall the south within three months. The industrial complex is also, closed as of today.

    A series of outright threats after a fresh round of U.N. sanctions for North Korea’s latest nuclear test reach a point whether Pyonyang declares its preparation for a war with two nations, the United States and South Korea and the wartime treatment of affairs with the South.

    Many experts concur that the North’s rhetoric is at a higher level than it was, and that objective assessment of the communist regime’s nuclear and missile prgrams shows it still short of striking U.S. mainland and territories in the Pacific.

    But the stalinist nation has yet again succeeded in riveting global audiences with escalating rhetoric or blusters.

    Many pundits view strident threats from North Korea as unlikely to materialize, but differ on the motivation of increasingly bellicose statements.

    But one thing is clear the recalcitrant country’s most provocative rhetoric of late comes after the two American stealth bombers’ test run across the Korean Peninsula, an implicit warning to the leadership in the North.

    The top military brass in Pyongyang are well aware of war psychology so they must think that they respond to what experts call an unusually dramatic way to demonstrate American deterrent capability to defend itself and its allies, with a new level of rhetoric in a display of their not being intimidated by nuclear bombers.

    The North Korean military perceive that if they back off in the face of American military prowess, its future strategic moves will be severly undermined in credibility.

    From this perspective, the back and forth between American boastfulness of strategic military assets and North Korean bluster of higher intensity is typical of securitu dillemma, with the meaning of this concept being that a country’s military measure for its improved security cause the feeling of insecurity for its adversial nation leading to an unintended heightened arms race in a vicious circle.

    As many North Korean experts argue, the increasingly acerbic threat will hardly translate into actions, but we need to keep vigilant for any surprise attacks from the wayward regime.

    Simultaneously, it is necessary to build causes for internationally concerted sanctions that China, the reclusive nation’s main benefactor has been unwilling to join–the chief reason why about two decade old international efforts to denuclearize the nuclear ambitious nation have failed.

  • 1.North Korea has never ever thrown a single rock at America.

    2. North Korea/Korea suffered the largest causality during WW2 and Korean war. Some 30% of North Korean population was bombed out of existence by US planes to put that in perspective Germany lost 2%, UK 1.5%, US <0.5%. There is not a single person alive in North Korea, who has not lost a family member during American bombing.

    3. Korea was invaded by US in 1888, the fact which has been conveniently deleted from history books.

    4. Its not the Koreans who divided themselves. America and Russia along with China were responsible for division of Korea.

    5. After Japanese withdrew from Korea. America remained in the region and divided Korea to rule over it.

    6. Don't forget the massacre in Jeju island where some 30,000 Koreans were killed by Americans as they were opposing Korean division.

    7. North Korea is the most sanctioned country on planet earth, right after Korean war.

    8. Koreans have learned their lesson. Korea never had any friends in China, thats why they are building their forces, they never had any friends in Japan, Nor russia certainly not America, which is just here to provoke another world war 3.

    People need to read History not follow main stream propaganda.

    Hell bloody well North Korea is prepared this time for they know, what America did to them in the past, what would you do, if your family is bombed out of existence by America.

    They are scared, they are prepared.

    America has invaded countries for lot less. They never dare cross the line this time, as they know, they gonna get it back. Perhaps you can fool Arabs, South Americans, Euroepans and other Asians with your FOOD AID in return for No Nuclear weapons Propaganda. North Korea has one of the highest IQ rates in the world along with South Korea. They cannot be fooled by Americans.

    When lowly countries like Pakistan and India have ICBMs with IQ of 80, what makes you think North Korea cannot with IQ of 106. They not only have ICBMs but Hydrogen Bomb as well, that is the reason, America is hesitant in Attacking Korea AGAIN. This time the game is really different.

    People wake up. North Koreans along with South Koreans are the victim here. America has no business to be in Korean peninsula. Get out. let the people of Korea be united.

        The history between Korea and the United States goes back to the late 1800s when the US had completed its manifest destiny across North America and was beginning to build a global empire. In 1871, more than 700 US marines and sailors landed on Kanghwa beach in west Korea, seeking to begin US colonization (a smaller US invasion occurred in 1866). They destroyed five forts, inflicting as many as 650 Korean casualties. The US withdrew, realizing it would need a much larger force to succeed, but this was the largest military force to land outside the Americas until the 1898 war in the Philippines. S. Brian Willson reports that this invasion is still discussed in North Korea, but it has been erased from the history in South Korea as well as in the United States.

        Other links to read. The real History of Korea. Very interesting read.

          heart breaking

          The American people should, in the words of Vietnam War Veteran Brian Willson “place themselves in the position of people living in targeted countries. That North Korea, a nation of 24 million people, i.e., one-twentieth the population of the U.S., many of them poor, a land slightly larger in area than the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, continues to be one of the most demonized nations and least understood, totally perplexes the Korean people.”

          What most people in America do not know –and which is particularly relevant when assessing the “threats” of the DPRK to World peace– is that North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military sources confirm that 20 percent of North Korea’s population was killed off over a three period of intensive bombings:

          “After destroying North Korea’s 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, “Over a period of three years or so we killed off – what – twenty percent of the population.” It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 – 9 million people during the 37-month long “hot” war, 1950 – 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance of another.” (quoted in Richard Rhodes, “The General and World War III,” The New Yorker, June 19, 1995, p. 53.)

          In comparison, during the Second World War the United Kingdom lost 0.94% of its population, France lost 1.35%, China lost 1.89% and the US lost 0.32%. During the Korean war, North Korea lost 30 % of its population, which means that every single family in North korea lost a loved one in the course of the Korean War.

          These figures of civilian deaths in North Korea should also be compared to those compiled for Iraq by the Lancet Study (John Hopkins School of Public Health). The Lancet study estimated a total of 655,000 Iraqi civilian deaths, following the US led invasion (March 2003- June 2006).

          The US never apologized for having killed 30 percent of North Korea’s population. Quite the opposite. The main thrust of US foreign policy has been to demonize the victims of US led wars.

          For more than half a century, Washington has contributed to the political isolation and impoverishment of North Korea. Moreover, US sponsored sanctions on Pyongyang have contributed to destabilizing the country’s economy.

          North Korea has been protrayed as part of an “axis of evil”. For what?

          The unspoken victim of US military aggression, the DPRK is portrayed as a failed war-mongering “Rogue State”, a “State sponsor of terrorism” and a “threat to World peace”. These stylized accusations become part of a consensus, which we dare not question. The Lie becomes the Truth. North Korea is heralded as a threat. America is not the aggressor but “the victim”.

          Washington’s intent from the very outset was to destroy North Korea and demonize an entire population. The US has also stood in the way of the reunification of North and South Korea.

          • the other guy

            You forget one of the main reasons for the Korean war: China.

            D. MacArthur, dissatisfied by the communist rule in China had vowed to put an en to the PRC & retake the Mainland in the process. The plan was to push North and enter China thru the Yalu River. Chairman Mao Ze Dong foresaw this scenario and after some internal debate the Communist party of China to send troops in the “aid” of North Koreans.

            In the end the Korean people where nothing more than the first “casualties” of the Cold War era…

            Divide and conquer become Divide and influence.

          • Zappa

            what you say seems to me the opposite of what you mean.

            If Mc Arthur was not stasfied by communist rules in China than did he has the right to change them? Did he has the right to conquer a country just because he didn’t like the government?

            according to your words the main reason for Korean wars was USA.

            p.s. “divide et impera”..

          • the other guy

            “If McArthur was not stasfied by communist rules in China than did he has the right to change them? Did he has the right to conquer a country just because he didn’t like the government?”

            Well, it would not the first time in history of man kind that a stronger power invest themselves to overthrow of leader they do not like. Without having to go very far, I think Iraq is a perfect example…

            Beyond that, reasons for war can always be manufactured to suit the situation, for example; We know today that the alleged attack on the American Destroyers by North Vietnamese PT boats never happened. Thus we can conclude that the only viable reason for the involvement of the US in Vietnam was the global war against Communism.

            It might be just me, but this seems to fall under the category of “conquering a country for not liking their government”

            http://fair.org/media-beat-column/30-year-anniversary-tonkin-gulf-lie-launched-vietnam-war/

            Now about the Korean war in 1950’s; Many historians mark it a the beginning of the Cold War as result of a polarized world in which the US and the Soviet Union antagonized each other.

            In 1951 there was a disagreement between General McArthur and President Truman, McArthur believed that if they invaded China the Soviet Union would inevitable loose all influence in the region. Truman did not share MacArthur vision and ended removing him from command.

            In fact McArthur was so set in invading China that he even authorized the bombardment of several locations of the Chinese Northeast and allegedly even contemplated the use of nuclear warfare:

            “European countries did not share MacArthur’s world view, distrusted his judgement, and were afraid that he might use his stature and influence with the American public to re-focus American policy away from Europe and towards Asia. They were concerned that this might lead to a major war with China, possibly involving nuclear weapons”
            – Schnabel 1972, pp. 287–292.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_MacArthur#Removal_from_command

            It is also worth mentioning that by 1950 Communist China still remained in war with the KMT and the US government did not recognize the PRC as legitimate. So I think it is safe to assume that McArthur wanted to re-institute their traditional ally Generalissimo Chiang-Kai-Shek back in power. After all the US did spend a fortune to help the KMT fight the Japanese.

            But all in all, this was a conflict among two supper powers and attacking China seemed to be a viable option to weaken the Soviet Union. You should remember by 1950 they had already developed the H-bomb, a year or two before the US. So it is no wonder that the general population of the US perceived the USSR as a threat to the American Way of Life.

            The general public supported Mcarthur, the man was a WWII hero that fought for what he believed it was best for his country, even if it contradicted state policies.

            Finally, “reason” is not the same as “causative” you might infer that the US was the sole causative for the war (I do not agree. As I have stated above that the Korean war was a ultimately the result of foreign influence)

            But without a doubt China was indeed one of the reasons to fight the War, specifically the “recapture”of the Mainland

            P.s “διαίρει καὶ βασίλευε”…

          • commander

            We should note the five star general, at odds with Washington over controls of war strategies, was ousted from his job.

          • the other guy

            A careful read of my post will expose that exact same argument. :)

            Now, if I believe than Truman’s reasons for removing MacArthur from command where more than “odds” concerning war strategies, McArthur went beyond his station, allegedly authorized the use of atomic warfare and even surrendered to China on behalf of the US goverment without the permissions.

            Soldiers in the army, no matter how far they get on the chain of command, never get to dictate policies, that is the job of the civilian government.

            All in all he might have been a WWII hero, but he eventually went over his head. His removal from command was unavoidable…

        • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

          Well I know America pulls some sneaky S*** all over the globe but see now THAT is wrong. It wasn’t colonization. It was a huge misunderstanding. What happened first was a merchant vessel came in to negotiate a trade deal with Korea on behalf of both the United States and Britain, and to set up policy on how to deal with shipwrecked sailors that awash to their shores.

          Korea refused all trade, but did plan to give the sailors some provisions on their way out of Korea. Either through miscommunication or something else, two sailors were beaten to death, which in turn led to a whole mess of bad stuff happening not out of malice, but miscommunication. The crew sent a boat to shore, Koreans sent officials to intercept, the crew saw it as hostile and took them aboard, which led to Koreans setting fire to the ship and killing the crew as they jumped off.

          Americans sent those marines to search for the remains of the vessel, and demand recompense for it, which Korean officials were dodgy about because that whole mess was just that, a mess and they wanted to forget it. Americans started searching for the vessel, Koreans misinterpret it as invasion, they fire on the search party, and then Americans demand apologies for that. They got no response, which basically gave the general in charge a reason to go in and wreck things up. The occupation was a way to get Korea’s attention, Rogers assumed was just ignoring them, but…taken directly from my source “The American forces captured 20 wounded Korean defenders. Minister Low
          tried to barter them for a meeting with a decision-making Corean
          official, but he was turned down. The Coreans retorted that the POWs
          were cowards and they would be severely punished if returned. Low was
          told that he was welcome to keep the wounded prisoners.”

          Rather than let the conflict escalate into full blown war(which would then need congressional approval to escalate), Americans pulled up stakes and left.

          That whole colonization thing happened with Japan which basically decided ‘sod negotiations’ and demanded Korea open up or be blown to bits.

            lavista4u is a Chinese. There is no point arguing history with people who are a byproduct of the PRC education system. Notice how he accuses Americans of the Jeju massacre (#6), when in fact it was the South Korean forces who were mopping up North Korean sympathizing insurrection that also lead to scores of innocent civilians murdered. This was ordered by the first president of South Korea, Syngman Rhee. The Chinese and North Koreans never recognized South Korea. South Korea was looked upon as a puppet of the Americans, so not worthy of even a mention in history. The rest of history lesson is a laughable collection of revisionist “history”.

    • With an “IQ of 106” you’d think they wouldn’t do something as stupid as to starve their populace rather than build nukes over some war that should’ve ended half a century ago.

    • This would all be amount to a great point if Clinton and KYS didn’t offer North Korea a get of jail free card, which North Korea promptly pissed all over when they didn’t get what they wanted immediately. Yes, the US has a lot of ulterior motives in their foreign policy, but every country does. Including North Korea. If you think their defensiveness is out of genuine concern for the Korean people, you are wrong. They are, ironically, the largest offender in genocide against the Korean ethnicity. I’m not saying the US didn’t stand idly by while Southern regimes carried out purges, but you can’t make a one-sided argument trying to paint North Korea as some victim of factors beyond its own control.

      They have been backing themselves into a corner since the 80s and I can guarantee, all they would have to do to extricate themselves from this corner would be A) stop all proliferation activities, at least to proven terrorist actors, and B) disband the concentration camps. I 99.999% guarantee you that, if they took these steps, even the big evil bad illuminati US would support lifting sanctions and allowing them to retain their political system if they made those two moves. In fact, the concentration camps are probably the largest reason why South Koreans would be hesistant to reunify with the North, culturally. And no, before you fire back with more cherry-picked facts, these far dwarf the mistakes like Abu-ghraib and Guantanamo, and yes, they really do exist and there is absolutely no humane excuse for them.

      Your arguments couldn’t be more right. But to South Koreans’ dismay, political vested interests at the international level have a tendency of expansion, want to drive out any outside intervention chipping away the basis for its continued dominance.

      Many Koreans know two giant powers will not allow the reunification of two Koreas unless such a change is not in their interests.

      Thus, realists argue Seoul should pursue the reunification under the restrainsts imposed by two great powers as it is impossible to, as you point out, drivw them out of the Korean Peninsula. Realists are well aware that their strategies can be viewed as submissive not independent by some liberals.

      But they emphasize the importance of drawing what is possible and what is desired or justifiable.

      International history shows that if the quest for a change of status quo is not backed appropriately by national power, it will backfire by causing suspicion among neighboring powers and pushing them to preempt such moves against their national interests.

      That’s why so many public causeshave failed to be achieved despite their justness.

    I’m happy I left Korea. But I hope all my Korean friends, and even my mean employers, are safe if war does break out.

    To the skeptics: an unannounced attack is possible. In 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea with no warning.

    If a war comes. There won’t be an announcement. Bombs will just come out of nowhere. Unless the US Army’s missle defense sysetm is 100% effective, there will be many lives lost.

  • commander

    With regard to North Korea’s declaration of state of war, it is very intetesting to see the silence of China.

    China may see its nod for toughened U.N sanctions as responsible in part for its intractable ally going beserk in recent weeks, so decide not to raise Pyongyang’s hackles by sitting on the sidelines.

  • Yep

    If you’re gonna blame anyone for this.

    Might as well blame patient zero (Japan). If Japan never colonized Korea during 1876, the USSR and USA wouldn’t even need to invade Korea in WW2, causing the division.

    And for all you, ultra nationalists, who blame China.

    Look it up, China didn’t even want to get involved during the Korean War. Only when the Allies got tooooo close to their borders, did they intervene.

    Think about it this way, if you’re communists and you got the world’s biggest anti-communists army on your doorstep. Are you gonna open the door and let them right in or are you gonna come out and defend your home.

China also blocks any information that ruins its reputation on the internet such as the famine during 1958-1961 that killed 30 or 70 million people (caused by the Chinese Communist party) and the Tiananman Square massacre of 1989

          China is evil and it’s perfectly acceptable to blame them for insinuating this crisis. China’s relationship with North Korea is not transparent whatsoever. We can’t trust them

    This is getting really tense. I hope North Korea realizes they (and the world) simply cannot afford to test South Korea if they do have a kinetic provocation up their sleeve.

    Does the US want to wipe out North Korea to set up bases against China?

    • Set up bases against China? We can already hit them just fine from where we are. :)

        • Iraq and Afghanistan weren’t “total wars.” The USA didn’t use its full capability. The USA succeeded in Iraq (Iraq has a new government; Saddam Hussein was caught and brought to justice). The US is still in Afghanistan but the US has actually succeeded in Afghanistan as well (Taliban and Al-Qaeda training camps are gone; Osama bin Laden is dead)

          The USA has bases all over the world. China doesn’t. If the USA and China were to go to war without the use of nuclear weapons, the USA would win easily. It would take China a long time to reach the USA with its navy, it won’t for ours (we have a huge Navy base in Japan)

          If nuclear weapons were to be used, the USA would win again. The USA has way more nukes than China. Also, the USA is the only country to have used nukes in warfare. We know how to use it

    wow, always racism in north korean propaganda. north korea is a psychotic racist state. these states always fail. to show how crazy they are, even the few american defectors to north korea from the 60s were not allowed to marry koreans, they were provided non korean wives that had been abducted.

    The South should put a giant 불고기식당 right on the border with North Korea. Most North Koreans can’t afford meat and the smell will drive them crazy. They will give up.
