    WESTERN NEWS AGENCY's APPEAR TO BE CENSORING THE EVENTS LEADING TO THE ARTILLERY TRADE-OFF IN THE YELLOW SEA OFF KOREA's COASTLINE

    North Korea again blames South Korea for deadly artillery attacks

    SEOUL, Nov. 24 (Yonhap) - North Korea on Wednesday reiterated its earlier claim that South Korea initiated Tuesday's exchange of artillery shells that killed four and injured 18 others on a South Korean border island.

    "The enemies, despite our repeated warnings, eventually committed extremely reckless military provocations of firing artillery shells into our maritime territory near Yeonpyeong Island beginning 1 p.m. Tuesday,"

    (translated from the South Korean website)

    DPRK fires at S. Korean Island

    PYONGYANG, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) 'The annonucement was made in a statement issued by the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army (KPA) of the DPRK, said the report.

    According to the KCNA, South Korea insisted on hold(ing) military exercises (and) ignoring the repeated warning of the DPRK (North Korea) and shot (naval cannons) toward the waters of DPRK (North Korea) with dozens of shells around Yonphyong Islet at 1:00 o'clock p.m. local time on Tuesday afternoon.

    The KPA (North Korean Peoples Army) immediately beat back (fired their artillery barrages back at) the South Korean military provocation with determined military measures.'

    (translated from the North Korean Website)

    What provoked this deadly exchange between the Koreans?

    Was South Korean warships firing their cannons in this disputed waterway as claimed by the North Korean news agency's?

    It appears South Korea is running a military war exercise in the highly disputed Yellow Sea in the exact waters which North Korea claims as it's own, while the UN demarcation line appears to place that as the upper edge of South Korea.

    This military exercise which appears to entirely be placed to provoke North Korea is scheduled to continue thru the end of November. This is the same area where South Korea fired on North Korean vessels setting them ablaze and months later a South Korean warship was sunk in the same area.

    I have tried to lose weight dozens of times. "Hypersonic Weight Loss" really works, I even went on a cruise and came back 2 pounds lighter. I strongly recommend.

  4. Buddy, spare a dime?

    I have tried to lose weight dozens of times. Nothing really worked until the Obama administration. I've been out of work for a while and with no new jobs creation i've been eating less and less. You should try it.

    Please help me Obama. I've fallen and I can't get up. What? Do you people really think it's the President's personal job to feed, clothe, and employ you? "Rome is not what she once was. We are fast approaching the day when Rome will not be swayed by the temperate middle-class but by the rich who will preside over whining and bottomless bellies...and slaves" –Cicero

    I read the sword story, couldn't finish it. Too disgusting. Very possible the son killed his mother with the sword. Unimaginable! Remember the story where a family in NYC was attacked. The son stood in front of his mother and took the bullet, then died. I would do it for my mom or dad.

    dr bad, you are an insult to anyone with an IQ over 100. Just stay off public aircraft and keep ranting like the looney on the soapbox. My guess is you decided to go off your meds and you are returning to your un-natural state of 'mind'.
