North Korea could be War Anytime?

Kim, wonder if he's seen my 3 pointer?
Well, it was fun while the game was playing, basketball that is.

 Dennis Rodman says North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's peace talk is no bull. "Kim is not one of these Saddam Hussein-type characters that want to take over the world," former Chicago Bulls star Rodman said. "He doesn't want to kill anyone — he wants to talk peace."

Be that as it may we're on high alert here, North Korea is ready for battle after a B2 Stealth run on South Korea 50 miles from the North's border. The mission exercise left the central states and flew 6500 miles without being detected, ah that would get ya nervous.

Obama, wonder if he's friends with Denise? 
 "Kim told me to pass on a message that he said is very important. He said, 'Tell President Obama to call me. Because if we can talk, we can work this out.' There is no need for war. Kim doesn't want to bomb anyone," Rodman insisted.

 President Obama and Kim both like basketball, you guys need to take this to the court, for our Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel hasn't been on the job long and already sitting on a hot seat!

The 38th Parallel: 
Why is this even happening! 
From Wikipedia: 

 The failure to hold free elections throughout the Korean Peninsula in 1948 deepened the division between the two sides; the North established a communist government, while the South established a right-wing government. The 38th parallel increasingly became a political border between the two Korean states. Although reunification negotiations continued in the months preceding the war, tension intensified. Cross-border skirmishes and raids at the 38th Parallel persisted. The situation escalated into open warfare when North Korean forces invaded South Korea on 25 June 1950.In 1950, the Soviet Union boycotted the United Nations Security Council, in protest at a representation of China by the Kuomintang/Republic of China government, which had taken refuge in Taiwan following defeat in the Chinese Civil War. In the absence of a dissenting voice from the Soviet Union, who could have vetoed it, the United States and other countries passed a Security Council resolution authorizing military intervention in Korea.

The United States of America provided 88% of the 341,000 international soldiers which aided South Korean forces in repelling the invasion, with twenty other countries of the United Nations offering assistance. Suffering severe casualties within the first two months, the defenders were pushed back to a small area in the south of the Korean Peninsula, known as the Pusan perimeter. A rapid U.N. counter-offensive then drove the North Koreans past the 38th Parallel and almost to the Yalu River, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) entered the war on the side of North Korea.Chinese intervention forced the Southern-allied forces to retreat behind the 38th Parallel. While not directly committing forces to the conflict, the Soviet Union provided material aid to both the North Korean and Chinese armies. The fighting ended on 27 July 1953, when the armistice agreement was signed. The agreement restored the border between the Koreas near the 38th Parallel and created the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a 2.5-mile (4.0 km)-wide fortified buffer zone between the two Korean nations. Minor incidents still continue today. 

 The Korean Armistice Agreement provided for monitoring by an international commission. Since 1953, the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC), composed of members of the Swiss and Swedish Armed Forces, has been stationed near the DMZ.

 In April 1975, South Vietnam's capital was captured by the North Vietnamese army. Encouraged by the success of the Communist revolution in Indochina, Kim Il-sung saw it as an opportunity to liberate the South. Kim visited China in April of that year and met with Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai to ask for military aid. Despite Pyongyang's expectations, however, Beijing refused to help North Korea for another war in Korea. 

 Since the armistice, there have been numerous incursions and acts of aggression by North Korea. In 1976, the axe murder incident was widely publicized. Since 1974, four incursion tunnels leading to Seoul have been uncovered. In 2010, a North Korean submarine torpedoed and sank the South Korean corvette ROKS Cheonan, resulting in the deaths of 46 sailors. Again in 2010, North Korea fired artillery shells on Yeonpyeong island, killing two military personnel and two civilians.

 After a new wave of U.N. sanctions, on 11 March 2013, North Korea claimed that it had invalidated the 1953 armistice. On 13 March 2013, North Korea confirmed it ended the 1953 Armistice and declared North Korea "is not restrained by the North-South declaration on non-aggression."

 On March 30, 2013, North Korea stated that it had entered a "state of war" with South Korea and declared that "The long-standing situation of the Korean peninsula being neither at peace nor at war is finally over." Speaking on April 04, 2013, United States Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, informed the press that Pyongyang had 'formally informed' the Pentagon that it had 'ratified' the potential usage of a nuclear weapon against South Korea, Japan and the United States of America, including Guam and Hawaii. Hagel also stated that the US would deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-ballistic missile system to Guam, due to a credible and realistic nuclear threat from North Korea. On the very same day, British Prime Minister, David Cameron, reiterated that in 2012 "North Korea unveiled a long-range ballistic missile which it claims can reach the whole of the United States. If this became a reality, it would also affect the whole of Europe, including the UK". Cameron's response to the escalating situation was that the UK Trident program will continue to act as a deterrent against the North Korean regime. 



OK here is a clip from Denise Rodman and his experience with Kim Jong Un, now just seeing Denise back from North Korea is a good sign. 

If war breaks out here someone throw a Wilson out on the battlefield, it would be better to see a B-ball, than B2s'.
