The Korean Peninsula shown in Dark Green.

(Worthy News) - U.S. officials expressed growing alarm Thursday after North and South Korea fired dozens of artillery rounds at each other, ratcheting tensions on the divided peninsula to their highest point in nearly a year.

South Korea, which is engaged in annual joint military drills with the U.S., fired back at the North after Pyongyang launched a barrage of shells southward in anger over Seoul’s broadcasting of anti-North propaganda messages across the Demilitarized Zone.

And on Friday morning, North Korea upped the ante further, at least rhetorically, saying its troops near the border are in a “quasi-state of war” and should be ready for any operations by Friday evening. [ Source ]

  1. I would guess that Russia and China are pushing North Korea to het South Korea hard to get them to agre to unite as one Korean nation .. North Korea has Russia and China arming and backing them ,they like Iran and like Iraq was ,may stil be there trained mad dog... Time grows near there needs to be a unification of nations .. and they go in force sometime in the future against Israel .. or threaten them that if they don't bow to a pagan god they will stand alone and I think Israel knows that they cannot count on the US with muhammad obama in power and nor can South Korea .. obama pushed a global governance bill when he was Senator of IL. .. THE SPREAD THE WEATH AND HEALTH ONE SIZE FIX ALL ..
