    This is silly. It is a military exercise on their territory. Of course they should go ahead with a military practice, it is not like they are bombing NK

    On the contrary, NK claims those waters as their own, so any firing that occurs will be firing into NK waters, and thus would to them be the equivalent of bombing NK.

    To be honest, they are just looking for an excuse to kick off.

    If they want to bring themselves closer to the brink of destruction, then by all means go ahead.

    I fully understand your point but it's not like the Russians and the Chinese are urging the South Koreans to not go ahead with the exercises for no reason. North Korea's threats should taken seriously and why have the military exercises go on now?

    Forgive me for playing devils advocate.

    I'm sure the 80 or so million people living in both North and South Korea shall very much appreciate such a thought :rolleyes:

    So we should go by what NK says and not by international consensus. Right

    Actually WW3 is happening right now. Those darned South Koreans, being so provocative with military training in their own territory and lighting up christmas trees on the borders. How could North Korea stand idle against such inflammatory gestures?
