This morning, North Korea launched an artillery strike against a South Korean Island, killing several inhabitants and destroying homes. I’ll remind people that a war between these two countries will make Iraq and Afghanistan look like a schoolyard tussle.
After the discovery earlier this year that a South Korean warship was sunk by a North Korean torpedo, it may be only a matter of time before the South must act in order to protect its viability as a state. As I’m writing this, it’s being reported that the South Korean president states that the South will unleash “enormous retaliation” if attacked again. This news comes on the heels of reports of North Korean attempts to weaponize uranium. I will continue monitoring.
Predictive Analysis: The North will again wait several months before attacking, allowing for a cool-off period and decreased media attention.
