South Korea warns North of 'strong response'

The South Korean president on Monday warned North Korea that any provocative moves will be met with "a strong response" as the United States deployed stealth fighter jets in the tense region as part of joint military exercises.

"If there is any provocation against South Korea and its people, there should be a strong response in initial combat without any political considerations," President Park Geun-hye said at a meeting with senior defense and security officials, according to her office.

    Although I doubt if the North has the tech to carry out their threats against US, any localized fracas could spiral into a nightmare.

    Lets hope that there are no mistakes or missteps in NK's blubbering! It will take only 1 incident and this thing could blow up in everyone's face.

    We really have no idea what NK has in their back pocket. But we do know what ronvan says is true... It only takes incident to lead to things spiraling out of control
