    South Korea and the U.S. have long held “war games” in the areas that are far NORTH of the DMZ, because the “boundaries” of South Korea, using islands, go way high into the North’s waters. Naturally , the south and U.S. use these provocative and disputed areas for their “exercises”. It is NOT all one-sided!

    I just viewed five pages of a search result at ten results per page and could find nothing about B2’s overflying N. Korea. All of them were about flying over S. Korea. If you have a credible source that we flew over N. Korea I would like to read it.

    As I said earlier in the week, the boundary between the Koreas was determined by the occupation of land at the moment of the ceasefire. The MDL cuts a jagged path across Korea. With the islands it is much harder yet as many islands were occupied by UN troops well above the MDL. They were lifesavers to some airmen who were “shot down” over North Korea but managed to make it to an island controlled by the UN. The islands are not North Korean by the terms of the ceasefire, but they try to claim them because of their geographic location.
    The one brinksmanship is true as the North has to have the largest of whatever as evidenced by the flag flying near the JSA, Pan Mun Jom.

    Yes, Justice, it does indeed remain a “problem”,, as I tried to note. Also, North Korean artillery can hit Seoul, they don’t need missiles to attack their “primary” enemy. NO, i definitely don’t like the North Korean government, didn’t like the East German under the Russian thumb, but also didn’t like Pinochet, or a number of right-wing dictators who murdered their people, who the U.S. long SUPPORTED!

    The key issue actually isn’t “Communism”, but violent dictators. Just like Chavez was a little weird, and we tried to "do him in’ several times, in several ways, many people in Venezuela DID come out a lot better off under his “management”. Republicans especially, and Americans in general, just hate to admit it.

    >flying our B2’s near north korea sends a very clear message, and the correct message. They have verbally declared war on us and our allies. we have, by our actions, showed them that there will be a huge price to pay as we will back THEIR WORDs with US Actions.

    Not sure what you are referring to. Yoengpyeongdo comes up in the news a lot, but it isn’t “way high” in NK’s waters.

    Over 27,000 U.S.troops still in South Korea. Yes, Kim is acting “nuts”,but so did his dad. Maybe if we’d stop poking a stick through the cage, the monkeys might stop “throwing stuff”?
