Would this be considered continuing the war?

I know the two countries have been at war, and that they both signed a cease-fire agreement. So, NK wants to pick up where they left off? RocketMaster (talk) 13:01, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

For all we know, NK is protesting against SK's military excersices or we could have a second Korean war. Your choice. (talk)14:01, 23 November 2010

What are you talking about the first Korean war hasn't ended yet. This has bin the first shots fired in hostility over 50 years, but still the war never ended. (talk)03:56, 24 November 2010

The war is on! (talk)11:34, 24 November 2010

My mistake. Didn't know that it never ended.

P.S. The Posts in the "if any ones knows anything about..." aren't from me. School network. (talk)13:26, 24 November 2010

I want to see this headline: "South korea and Usa drive their boats around North korea shooting their guns off as an 'exercise', shocked when fired upon". All parties are ignorant AFAIK. (talk)23:06, 24 November 2010

If anyone knows anything about The Korean War, there's obviously still some Hostile Attraction between South Korea and North Korea. And consider this, The Afghanistan War is currently being fought, so the United States, Canada and Britain are occupied fighting The Taliban. Perfect moment for North Korea to strike, no? (talk)14:04, 23 November 2010

If the Korean war was resumed, I find it unlikely that Britain and Canada would have much involvement, even without the war in Afghanistan. The main belligerents would probably be the USA, South Korea and Japan. And I doubt that China would risk their worldwide markets in order to defend a small chunk of land whose second largest city does not reach 800,000 population figures.

North Korea has less of a chance of victory now than it has had in the last 50 years. (talk)15:22, 23 November 2010

Just a couple of well placed shots into north korea should do it however. then who is going to pick up the pieces north korea might be in a bit of mess in there. (talk)13:09, 24 November 2010

You'd think, but you'd also be suprised. Canada would join The Battle, if The United States did infact transfer some Soldiers over to Korea, Japan wouldn't get involved. Japan is a part of The United Nations. Not North Korea and her Allies. I agree, Britain wouldn't get involved, I nver said they would. But that doesn't stop Canada from helping out The U.S. (talk)13:17, 24 November 2010

there is a need to eliminate midiators between both koreans for peace talks

One of the source articles claimed "China has expressed concern over the exchange of fire and urged the two sides to work toward peace and stability on the Korean peninsula." Having a translation of the Chinese press release (or a link to the original, for machine translation) could be interesting.

  问:据报道,朝鲜今天向韩国延坪岛发射炮弹,韩国进行了还击。中方对此有何评论? Q: As reported, today North Korea has fired shells to South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island, South Korea returned fire. What does China comment on it?   答:我们注意到有关报道,对事态表示关注。具体情况有待核实。希望各方保持冷静克制,共同致力于维护朝鲜半岛的和平稳定。 A: We learned of these reports, and we are concerned about the event. Exact situation has to be verified. We hope various parties stay calm and show restraint, and all work together towards peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula.

It's a regular press conference hosted every few days, it can't really get more boring, as the spokesman likely hardly knows much himself. -Funicode (talk) 16:05, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for finding it, regardless of how detailed (or not) it is.
