NORTH KOREA SHELLS SOUTH KOREAN ISLAND

BREAKING FROM FOX NEWS:

BREAKING NEWS — North Korea shot dozens of rounds of artillery onto a populated South Korean island near their disputed western border Tuesday, prompting South Korea to return fire and scramble fighter jets, military officials said. At least one South Korean marine reportedly was killed.

The skirmish came amid high tension over North Korea’s claim that it has a new uranium enrichment facility and just over a month after North Korean leader Kim Jong Il unveiled his youngest son Kim Jong Un as his heir apparent.

I’d joke about this if it weren’t so serious.  For those who don’t know, this isn’t nearly the first time North Korea has attacked South Korea since the armistice that ended the Korean War.  Look at the DMZ “Axe murder incident” from 18 August 1976.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the people around this blog know about that attack, but it’s been my experience that most don’t.

And now those same North Koreans are building a new Uranium enrichment facility.  As Lex would say, we’re in the very best of hands.
