    Should not or should? If you mean should, have you heard the story? It wasn't a sea (like one mile off the North Sea coast). It was the South Pacific.
    Yes but is has no relevance, no importance.

    It's a fascinating story of courage and bravery (and stupidity). It deserves its place on the news even if it's just to teach a lesson. Things like that don't happen often.

    It may seem a bit odd having something which may seem quite trivial alongside the potential outbreak of a conflict, but this sort of thing happens all the time. You're always going to get various news stories side by side.

    I'd say a fair amount of what's reported in the national and international news is of little to no importance. Especially when it comes to celebrity news.

    If you . I just see no reason why it ought to be shifted to local news (and, if it is, which region?)

    Latest news for those who are interested:

    - President of S.Korea has not demanded an apology which is quite strange.
    - Plans to fire artillery at the same place as last Tuesday have been put on hold, but are still expected to occur in the next couple of days (probably Wednesday which is when the exercises end with the US).
    - US has gone back on their statement of not including live-fire in the drills. Today they were seen shooting mock targets in the water and firing shells.
    - N.Korea is pissed. Surprise surprise.
    - N.Korea have said if the artillery fire goes ahead as planned then they will attack back as the shells are 'bound to touch their waters'.

    The BBC and basically all other western sources are utter crap for this. I strongly recommend this site for fast updates: http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/nati...10200315F.HTML

    Question:
    If Seoul is so close to NK and SK have known for decades that NK may attack, why has the capital not changed to somewhere less vulnerable?

    I suppose the cost of relocation would be too high. Now that there is a nuclear threat, there is especially little point in relocating.

    I don't really know too much about what exactly the consequences could be if something did break out?
    Anyone care to give me a quick and simple overview of the situation? ha

    Basically just explaining,
    is this a very serious situation? pretty serious? a regular thing that doesn't mean too much?
    Is it the kind of thing that the whole world is worried about? who will it affect?
    Would we (UK) stay well clear? How much damage could NK do if they chose to launch a full scale attack?
    For that last one using the senario of them attacking us would maybe be a good way of explaining it, ha.

    What good would Trident do? N. Korea can be obliterated quite easily using conventional missiles and weaponry. Not to mention that the UK is one of the furthest countries away from N. Korea and well out of their nuclear range (if they have one).

    The UK is safe and I can't see how it would ever come under threat from this. The only thing people are worried about is if China get involved and protect N. Korea which could result in a massive war. If nukes are used then things could get dangerous but none of this is likely to happen. Even if China get involved and ally with N. Korea (which they won't) it'll simply mean there's a big chance US/South Korea lose and nothing changes apart from Korea being destroyed and millions dead + strained diplomatic relations.
