North Korea threatens to end armistice

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not yet seen elsewhere...

    Report: North Korea threatens to end armistice - CNN.com

    Probably just Kim Jong Un big-timing. Still, interesting times.
     
  2. N. Korea would be in for a kicking from S. Korea/US in the south and the PRC in the north wouldn't be too impressed, either, so I think there would be a good kicking from there, too.

    Sounds like a lose/lose scenario for Kim Jong Junior.
     
  3. If they cut the phone lines to the outside world little Kim will surely feel even more "ronery"...

    Obviously running out of rice and oil again.

    Ignoring the North Koreans is the best tactic. If you react to them throwing their toys out of the pram, it just encourages them to do it again.

    Playing Devils Advocate though, if I was a dirt poor country feeding my citizens propaganda, lies and not much else, but I was armed with Nukes, is it essentially a wise move to shut down my back-channel deals and money laundering, thus depriving the Lords and Masters of more Cake to have and eat?

    When the contradictory-socialists at the top lose their 'fringe benefits', they might just turn around and go "**** it" and press the big, fat red button.
     
  8. They can sever the phone lines because they have sat phones and a developing mobile network to actually communicate.

    That's like us falling out with the US and cutting the telegram cables under Porthcurno beach as a gesture of ill-will.
     
  9. Thereby giving the US carte blanche to retaliate. It would be like a fight between a bloke with a Brown Bess and a bloke with a Minigun.
     
  10. This should allow the US to make a preemptive strike.
    I imagine the south will be prepping for the fallout.
     
  11. I would imagine china is now going mental at N.K atm and possibly thinking its time they sent there own army in to take out the mad feckers.
    This is going to be an interesting week at the UN.

  12. I would wager that if North Korea did make a serious threat they'd find themselves becoming China's newest province pretty sharpish
