This makes me sad that humanity has spent so much time, money and effort into things that kill instead of heal

I thought Korea was supply capped at 200.

I thought shells would be lobbed at some island at least, but goddamn DPRK is nothing more than a whining little bitch country. the world should just ignore them. if they fire one bullet across the border, send in the airstrikes and bomb the shit to the stone age.

So, after dying down, this are just not getting better:

S. Korea says it will withdraw remaining workers from joint industrial complex - The Washington Post

Quote:
SEOUL — After North Korea on Friday rejected formal talks to resolve a standoff at a jointly operated border industrial complex, South Korea said it would call home its remaining workers from the facility, formally severing the last major connection between the two countries.

South Korea’s decision diminishes the already slim odds of the complex’s survival and widens a divide between Seoul and Pyongyang that has grown during weeks of back-and-forth threats.

The Kaesong Industrial Complex had stood as the chief symbol of cooperation between the neighbors after opening in 2004 as a capitalist bubble on the northern side of the border where South Korean companies employed cheap North Korean labor. But the North, earlier this month, barred South Koreans from entering the complex and then pulled out its own 50,000 employees.

Until Friday, South Korea had seemed hopeful that the facility might soon resume normal operations. More than 800 South Koreans had been inside Kaesong when the North’s barricade was put into effect, and 175 of them elected to stay — a grim three-week holdout aimed at saving their businesses. But South Korean officials say the North subsequently blocked shipments of food and medical supplies, creating an “urgent” humanitarian problem.

The South Koreans at Kaesong are dealing with “greater difficulties due to the North’s unjust actions,” Ryoo Kihl-jae, Seoul’s unification minister, said Friday in announcing the decision. “The government has come to the unavoidable decision to bring back all remaining personnel in order to protect their safety.”

South Korea’s decision followed a threat issued a day earlier to take unspecified “significant measures” if the North did not accept an offer for working-level talks on Kaesong by noon Friday. Several hours after the deadline, North Korea rejected the talks in a statement released by its state-run news agency. In particular, the North accused South Korea of adopting a hostile policy toward the ruling Kim family and allowing activists to hold recent anti-North protests.

The North’s statement warned vaguely of a “final decisive and crucial measure” if South Korea continued to provoke it, but the statement also offered some assurances, saying that South Korean workers would be allowed to freely leave Kaesong if they chose.

The North will “responsibly take all the humanitarian measures including the provision of guarantee for their personal safety that may arise in the course of the withdrawal,” said the statement, attributed to the National Defense Commission, a top decision-making body.

At Kaesong, 123 small- and medium-size South Korean companies had employed virtually an entire town of North Koreans, paying them between $2 and $3 per day.

When Kaesong was conceived, South Korean officials hoped it would not only spur wider North-South cooperation, but also push the communist government in Pyongyang to accept broader forms of capitalism in its tightly controlled economy. The facility failed to transform the North — but it did generate an estimated $80 million annually for the country’s leaders, who collected a bulk of their workers’ salaries.

So far, neither North nor South Korea has publicly given up hope about reviving Kaesong. The North says its barricade is “temporary.”

On Friday, during a meeting with foreign affairs and security ministers, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said she preferred to resume normal operations at the facility. But she also did not want to “wait endlessly” to have talks with the North to resolve the situation, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.

Upside: the border crossing that the Southerners use is still open, so it's not the complete end of the world. But still.

I think Lil' Kim is probably fuming that the Tsarnaev brothers had managed to steal his limelight.

Except this was a move by the South, not the North.

Bumping an old thread
North Korea 'test-fires submarine-launched missile'
North Korea 'test-fires submarine-launched missile' - BBC News

Also from CNN
yongyang, North Korea (CNN)North Korea has carried out a successful underwater test of a ballistic missile, the North Korean state news agency reported.

Leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test himself, KCNA reported on Saturday (Friday evening, ET).

A submarine launched the missile at a location far from the North Korean mainland, according to the news agency.

Kim praised the test as a "miraculous achievement" and said his country is capable of producing this type of missile. This missile was a "time bomb which will go off on the backs of our hostile enemies at any time," he added, the KCNA report said.

Such rhetoric, while alarming on its face, is not unlike Kim's pronouncements after missile tests in the past.

While declining to talk about any specific "intelligence matters," a U.S. State Department official said more generally that "launches using ballistic missile technology are a clear violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions."

"We call on North Korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region and focus instead on taking concrete steps toward fulfilling its international commitments and obligations," the official said.

Anti-ship missiles

Also Saturday, a South Korean defense ministry official said North Korea had fired three ship-to-ship missiles from the sea near North Korea's eastern city of Wonsan.

No other details were available as of yet, the official said. The missiles were fired in an hour-long window Saturday afternoon local time (between 3:25 and 4:23 a.m. ET.)

The anti-ship missiles are designated KN-01 type by South Korea, and are not in the same category as the submarine-launched ballistic missile reportedly tested by the North. That launch was from a port farther to the north, up the eastern coast of the Korean Peninsula.

News of the latest missile firings come one day after North Korea threatened to attack, without warning, any South Korean naval ships that entered disputed waters west of the peninsula.

South Korea responded by threatening to retaliate if North Korea carries out any acts of aggression.

I wonder how will the world act and if this is true or not.
