N. Korea Shells S. Korea

North Korea is wanting more stuff from Western powers. That has been the reason NK has threatened S. Korea in the past. This time NK has actually fired upon S. Korea with 200 artillery rounds hitting an inhabited island, Yongpyeong, wounding 4 soldiers and 2 civilians.

CNN reports:
At least 200 rounds of artillery hit an inhabited South Korean island after the North started firing about 2:30 p.m. local time, Yonhap said.

South Korea's military responded with 80 rounds of artillery and deployed fighter jets to counter the fire, the report said.

The South Korean army also raised its alert condition, the report said.
Reuters adds that 60-70 homes are on fire on the disputed maritime border area island and plumes of smoke have been broadcast on YTN television.

"Houses and mountains are on fire and people are evacuating. You can't see very well because of plumes of smoke," a witness on the island told YTN.

"People are frightened to death and shelling continues as we speak," the witness said. (...)
South Korea's military confirmed the exchange of firing, without providing more details.

The attack comes just as a U.S. envoy is traveling to the region after revelations that the North is moving ahead with uranium enrichment, a possible second path to manufacture material for atomic weapons.
How much you want to bet Obama caves to North Korean demands? Just like all the U.S. presidents back to Clinton.

The only thing North Korea will EVER respect is force. Don

Don's right and with the hopelessly inexperienced, weak and ideologically challenged Obama in office we can expect more of this kind of thing which may eventually lead to a hotter shooting war killing hundreds or even thousands.

Perhaps this time around, we will furnish the weapons to N. Korea. It's only fair.

Don;t give Odumbo any ideas Indigo! Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis was a Stalinist who might very well have inculcated some very strange ideas along those lines into Odumbo's mushy head.

Funny you should mention FM Davis, Mike. I believe very strongly Davis to be Obama's real father, not Obama Senior. Junior doesn't look anything like the Kenyan guy at all, but shares many features of Davis.
