China Warns U.S. On Naval Exercises as North Korea Promises Retaliation

China has warned the United States against engaging in military activity on its coastline.

North Korea warns of a “shower of dreadful fire” in response to the joint U.S.-South Korean exercises.    
   

“We oppose any military act by any party conducted in China’s exclusive economic zone without approval,” China’s Foreign Ministry replied in response to a question about the inclusion of a U.S. Aircraft carrier strike group participating in the joint exercise.

The exclusive economic zone is a maritime zone up to 200 nautical miles from a country’s coast.

It was reported today that Obama would be speaking with his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao in coming days. China has refused to condemn North Korea’s attack.

The Chinese statement arrives ahead of U.S.-South Korean naval exercises, according to Reuters. Earlier in the week, the Pentagon sent the USS George Washington and four other Navy ships to the Yellow Sea after North Korea shelled South Korean soldiers and civilians in response to South Korean military exercises.

In a statement from the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet, the military exercises are described as a measure to show the United States’ “commitment to regional stability through deterrence.” Joint military exercises with the South Koreans begin on Sunday. North Korea has promised “waves of retaliation” if provoked.

Asian experts and political commentators warn the provocative military exercises near the North Korean and Chinese borders may result in war on the Korean Peninsula. North and South Korea have engaged in heightened saber-rattling since the incident earlier in the week.

On Friday, North Korea engaged in artillery drills within sight of the island bombed last week. The attack killed two soldiers and two civilians. Gen. Walter Sharp, the U.S. commander in South Korea, was on the island touring the damage at the time. “None of the latest rounds hit the South’s territory, and U.S. military officials said Sharp did not even hear the concussions, though residents on other parts of the island panicked and ran back to the air raid shelters where they huddled earlier in the week as white smoke rose from North Korean territory,” reports the Associated Press.

“The situation on the Korean peninsula is inching closer to the brink of war,” a report issued by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency said. Pyongyang’s military “precisely aimed and hit the enemy artillery base” on the island as punishment for South Korean military drills, said a North Korean official, who also warned of a “shower of dreadful fire” in response to the joint U.S.-South Korean exercises. “Gone are the days when verbal warnings are served only.”

North Korea has the largest artillery force in the world. It maintains 80,000 special forces and is believed to have some 13,000 artillery pieces deployed along the border.

In South Korea, the situation has resulted in political chaos.

Following the shelling of Yeonpyeong Island, South Korean president Lee Myung-bak accepted the resignation of his defense minister and ordered more troops and advanced weaponry to the maritime border with North Korea. “We should not ease our sense of crisis in preparation for the possibility of another provocation by North Korea,” spokesman Hong Sang-pyo said, quoting the South Korean president. “A provocation like this can recur any time.” Myung-bak appointed his security adviser Lee Hee-Won as his new defense minister.

“The South Korean media is baying for blood (or at least air strikes), the South Korean defense minister has fallen on his sword, and extra troops have been posted on the outlying islands,” writes Peter Foster for the Telegraph.

“If the North Koreans continue to act in this provocative way, it’s fair to ask the question, where does that all end in terms of South Korea’s ability to simply continue to turn the other cheek,” said Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd. “This question goes to the heart of the political and security order of the world, [and] it’s important, I believe, for China to step up to the plate,” said Rudd after talking to the U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

“The pressing task now is to put the situation under control and prevent a recurrence of similar incidents,” said Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi today after talking with Clinton by phone. Yang Jiechi also spoke with the South Korean foreign minister and the North Korean ambassador to China.

it will happen Sunday and then we will see if NK or China does anything to start a War..

Rumor across the web  is that Sunday will be the start of another War with NK and that the US draft will be reintroduced .

We saw a friend from church from the Philippines tonight in the supermarket. He was with two Filipinos that just came here to Korea four days ago and they were very worried about something happening after the drills tomorrow.  I tried to explained that small border skirmishes happen all the time here along the border (though it was the first time since the war either side used artillery).

They told me a Filipino friend was going to join them here today but was stopped by Filipino immigration (which also controls emigration).  Apparently their government will not allow workers to emigrate here right now and in the case of a war will evacuate or order/recommend Filipinos to evacuate.

I'm still not that worried myslef, but I think it is significant that other nations are restricting emigration here.  I don't think our own state dep't. has issued any warning.  If I wasn't here with my family already, I don't know if I would move here right now. 

I have looked at maps, though, of the range of their (the North's) artillery and we are all right at the moment. However, we are very close to being in range  -- especially if they move pieces around.

Of course being between Seoul and the DMZ we are also in the path of any possible blitz-type invasion, but I don't believe that is iminent for the time being.

CHINA TELLS AMERICA: Turn Around The USS George Washington

China has warned against military activity near its coastline ahead of U.S.-Korea naval exercises, according to Reuters.

China's Foreign Ministry said in an online posting that naval exercises risks starting a war: "We oppose any military act by any party conducted in China's exclusive economic zone without approval."

North Korea has also threatened to respond to military gestures with more attacks: "The situation on the Korean peninsula is inching closer to the brink of war due to the reckless plan of those trigger-happy elements to stage again war exercises targeted against the (North)."

China Warns U.S. as Korea Tensions Rise
Beijing Bears Rising Cost for Support of Pyongyang; New Take on Naval Exercises
http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=581054
By JEREMY PAGE in Dandong, China and JAY SOLOMON and JULIAN E. BARNES in Washington

DANDONG, China—Beijing on Friday lodged its first official protest of a joint U.S.-South Korean military exercise planned for Sunday, even as the aircraft carrier USS George Washington steamed toward the region. North Korea also responded angrily. "The situation on the Korean peninsula is inching closer to the brink of war," the state controlled Korean Central News Agency responded Friday to the maneuvers, which are set to take place in the Yellow Sea between the Koreas and northeastern China. The strong talk was the latest fallout from North Korea's hour-long artillery attack of a South Korean island on Tuesday that killed four people. The next day, the U.S. and South Korea said planned joint exercises would go ahead over the weekend, heightening fears in some quarters that already-tense relations between North and South Korea—and their respective international protectors, China and the U.S.—could be heading for a showdown. The U.S. military aircraft carrier USS George Washington sets sail from Yokosuka naval base. Yet China's outwardly defiant response belies a more delicate political reality: Beijing's continued support of North Korea's erratic, martial regime is beginning to extract real costs. China's statement Friday included a face-saving formulation that appeared to open the door for a scenario China has long sought to avert—a U.S. aircraft carrier, a potent symbol of U.S. military might, plying the edge of Chinese waters.

Expats recalled as North Korea prepares for war
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/expats-recalled-as-north-korea-prepares-for-war-2145018.html
By Shaun Walker in Moscow Saturday, 27 November 2010

A mass exodus of North Korean workers from the Far East of Russia is under way, according to reports coming out of the region. As the two Koreas edged towards the brink of war this week, it appears that the workers in Russia have been called back to aid potential military operations. Vladnews agency, based in Vladivostok, reported that North Korean workers had left the town of Nakhodka en masse shortly after the escalation of tension on the Korean peninsula earlier this week. "Traders have left the kiosks and markets, workers have abandoned building sites, and North Korean secret service employees working in the region have joined them and left," the agency reported. Russia's migration service said that there were over 20,000 North Koreans in Russia at the beginning of 2010, of which the vast majority worked in construction. The workers are usually chaperoned by agents from Kim Jong-il's security services and have little contact with the world around them. Defectors have suggested that the labourers work 13-hour days and that most of their pay is sent back to the government in Pyongyang. Hundreds of workers have fled the harsh conditions and live in hiding in Russia, constantly in fear of being deported back to North Korea. "North Korea's government sends thousands of its citizens to Russia to earn money, most of which is funnelled through government accounts," says Simon Ostrovsky, a journalist who discovered secret North Korean logging camps in the northern Siberian taiga. "Workers are often sent to remote locations for years at a time to work long hours and get as little as three days off per year." Now it appears that some kind of centralised order has been given for the workers to return home.

If it gets dangerous, we will definitely get out -- somewhere.  I would not take any chances with my wife and child, and few with myself nowadays.  I don't think we are really close to that point, though.

Thanks for your concern, though, shipgeek.

The Threat of War in Korea: Philippines prepares for possible mass evacuation from S.Korea, requests Japan's aid

Philippine President Benigno Aquino has held talks with Japanese Ambassador Makoto Katsura in Manila on the possible immediate evacuation of some 50,000 Filipinos from South Korea to Japan, NHK television reported on Saturday.

President Aquino's concerns come after reports of a U.S. naval task force led by the George Washington nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that will join South Korean warships in naval exercises on November 28-December 1.

The drills will be held in the wake of a recent military clash between North Korea and South Korea. The South claimed it returned fire after the North opened artillery fire on Yeonpyeong Island in the Yellow Sea on Tuesday, killing at least two South Korean marines and two civilians. Sixteen others were injured, along with three civilians.

Aquino held an extraordinary meeting with government officials to inform them of the need to be prepared for the evacuation of Filipinos living and working in South Korea, adding that their evacuation to the Philippines would take much time and "the closest country to South Korea is Japan."

THK television neither reported on how such an evacuation would occur nor on Japan's actions should it need to accept 50,000 Filipino refugees.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula remains tense and South Korea has boosted its military presence on Yeonpyeong Island.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei on Friday said, citing the upcoming U.S.-South Korean naval drills in the Yellow Sea, that China strongly opposes any foreign states' military maneuvers in its exclusive economic zone.

China has always remained a close ally to North Korea.

The USS George Washington, which carries 75 combat aircraft and a crew of over 6,000, has left its naval base in Yokosuka, Japan, and will arrive in the Yellow Sea on Sunday to begin military maneuvers with South Korea, which many see as irritating the already tense situation between the North and South.

It's official: South Korea and the US have officially begun war exercises, according to CNN, that may provoke further action from North Korea, and which China has warned against.

Meanwhile, in Japan...

Kyodo News:

All members of Prime Minister Naoto Kan's Cabinet were on alert Saturday for developments in North Korea as South Korea and the U.S. prepared to start a four-day military drill Sunday in the Yellow Sea.

Cabinet members have been ordered by Kan to stay in Tokyo until Wednesday and be at their ministry offices within an hour in the event of a crisis.

North Korea issues chilling warning over US-South Korea war games


NORTH Korea's state media warned today that "no-one can predict the ensuing consequences" if a US carrier group goes ahead with a planned drill with South Korea in the Yellow Sea.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) statement came days after the hardline communist regime sharply heightened regional tensions with an artillery attack that killed two marines and two civilians on a South Korean border island.

The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier the USS George Washington and its battle group plans four days of exercises starting today with a flotilla of South Korean warships in a show of force meant to deter Pyongyang.

The KCNA report labelled the United States "the arch-criminal who orchestrated the recent military clash", in which South Korea on Tuesday returned artillery fire at the North.

Chinese government to make 'urgent' announcement
http://www.koreaherald.com/national/Detail.jsp?newsMLId=20101128000305

2010-11-28 15:30

The Chinese government said Sunday it will make an "urgent" announcement later in the day amid rising military tensions surrounding the Korean Peninsula.

   China's foreign ministry said it will hold a press conference at 4:30 p.m. for both domestic and foreign reporters based in Beijing, adding that it will not accept any questions during the conference.

   The ministry didn't provide details about the announcement, but it is expected to cover developments surrounding North Korea's recent attack on South Korea.

   North Korea on Tuesday fired a barrage of artillery rounds toward Yeonpyeong Island near the tense Yellow Sea border, killing two South Korean marines and as many civilians and leaving 18 others wounded.

   The attack drew international condemnation and angered South Koreans, who came under the communist neighbor's first attack targeting civilians since the 1950-53 Korean War.

   Defying North Korea's threats, South Korea and the United States launched large-scale naval drills off the Korean Peninsula's west coast Sunday with the aircraft carrier USS George Washington participating, in a potent show of force against the North.

   Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo, who advises top Chinese officials on foreign policies, traveled to Seoul Saturday with Beijing's chief nuclear negotiator Wu Dawei. On Sunday, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Dai discussed measures to ease tensions on the peninsula.

   China has expressed concerns on the South Korean-U.S. joint military exercise, saying it will further escalate the tensions.

   China's state-run Xinhua News Agency reported earlier on Sunday that Choe Thae-bok, secretary of the North's Central Committee of the Workers' Party and chairman of the regime's parliament Supreme People's Assembly, will make a five-day visit to China starting on Tuesday, in response to an invitation from Wu Bangguo, China's top legislator and second-ranking official.

South Korea orders journalists off island

excerpt from http://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/south-korea-orders-journalists-755616.html

Quote
YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea — South Korea's Defense Ministry has ordered journalists to leave the front-line island of Yeonpyeong, citing high tension with North Korea.

The Defense Ministry says "the situation is not good" on the island, following the start of South Korea-U.S. military drills in Yellow Sea waters to the south.

Earlier Sunday, the military ordered islanders and journalists to evacuate to shelters following after several artillery rounds were heard. None of the rounds hit the island.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea (AP) — The sound of new artillery fire from North Korea just hours after the U.S. and South Korea launched a round of war games in Korean waters sent residents and journalists on a front-line island scrambling for cover Sunday.

None of the rounds landed on Yeonpyeong Island, military officials said, but the incident showed how tense and uncertain the situation remains along the Koreas' disputed maritime border five days after a North Korean artillery attack decimated parts of the island and killed four South Koreans.

Well, went to a wedding in Seoul today.  One of my co-workers was marrying a captain in the Army.  Besides the groom and honor guard and a few other essential military perosnnel for such an occasion, there were no other military in attendance.  Everyone was on "standby" on base or elsewhere, I was informed.  They are taking this very seriously here.

Looks like "somebody" wants war. What good will it do?
Killing more people? Hasn't the US done enough wrong in Iraq? Afghanistan? Pakistan? Somalia? Nicaragua? Panama? Vietnam? etc? Do they really want to start/trigger another war?

I guess the only advantages will be for the military-industrial complex and various contractors involved.

They keep lying to the sheep by telling them that North Korea started the artillery fire while we know damn well that this is not true South Korea firing first.
Let's see who will fire first this time.

YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea – China tried Sunday to defuse tension over a recent North Korean attack on the South by proposing an emergency meeting in Beijing, hours after the U.S. and South Korea launched naval war games in a united show of force.

Beijing's top nuclear envoy called for an emergency meeting among the six nations involved in the stalled North Korean nuclear disarmament talks to calm tempers over North Korea's artillery barrage Tuesday that killed four people on South Korea's front-line island of Yeonpyeong.

Nuclear envoy Wu Dawei said in a statement issued in Beijing that the international community, particularly members of the six-party talks — the two Koreas, Japan, the U.S., China and Russia — were deeply concerned about recent developments. He called for a meeting of chief nuclear negotiations in China in early December.

S. Korea effectively rejects China's offer to resume six-party talks

South Korea's foreign ministry said Sunday that China's offer to resume six-party talks on North Korea "should be studied very carefully," stressing that creating the right atmosphere for reopening the negotiations is a priority.

The reaction was seen as a de facto rejection of Beijing's proposal that the chief delegates from the six nations meet in early December to discuss tensions on the Korean Peninsula after North Korea's deadly artillery strike on a South Korean island.

N. Korea deploys SA-2 surface-to-air missiles near Yellow Sea border

North Korea has deployed SA-2 surface-to-air missiles to its west coast near the Yellow Sea border with South Korea as U.S.-led naval drills got underway in a show of force against the North's deadly artillery attack on a South Korean island earlier last week, government sources said Sunday.

"(The missiles) appear to be targeting our fighter jets that fly near the Northern Limit Line (NLL)," the source said on customary condition of anonymity, referring to the Yellow Sea border.

South Korea and the U.S. on Sunday launched large-scale naval drills off the Korean Peninsula's west coast, far south of the border where four people were killed and 18 others wounded in Tuesday's surprise attack on Yeonpyeong Island.

The Soviet-designed SA-2 missile has a range of between 13 and 30 kilometers. Other missiles on the North's west coast, such as the Samlet and Silkworm with ranges of up to 95km, have also been put onto launch pads, the source said.

"The military is preparing for the possibility of further provocations as the North Korean military has deployed firepower near the NLL and is preparing to fire," the source said.

PAJU, South Korea, Nov. 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea mistakenly fired an artillery shell toward the southern side of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Sunday afternoon and soon sent a message to North Korea that the firing was accidental, military officials said.

No casualties occurred from the accidental discharge that took place at around 3 p.m., the officials said.

(5th LD) China calls for emergency talks on N. Korean nukes

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/news/2010/11/28/0200000000AEN20101128005900320.HTML

China on Sunday called for emergency discussions early next month among envoys to the six-party talks aimed at denuclearizing North Korea, amid rising military tensions surrounding the Korean Peninsula caused by the North's artillery attacks on a southern island.

The six-party talks involving China, the two Koreas, the United States, Japan and Russia have been deadlocked since December 2008. Chances of resuming talks soured when a Seoul-led multinational investigation concluded that Pyongyang torpedoed its warship Cheonan in March, killing 46 South Korean sailors.

The secretary of North Korea's ruling party is to visit China later this week, Chinese media reported Sunday, amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula following the North's abrupt attack on the South.

Choe Thae-bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party and chairman of the regime's parliament Supreme People's Assembly, will make a five-day visit to China starting on Tuesday, said China's state-run Xinhua News Agency in its Chinese-language report.

Just how much of an emergency are these talks when they propose them to be next month? Isn't an emergency like, oh, right now? ::)

Lee delivered the message to Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo, who arrived in Seoul Saturday night at the order of Chinese President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao, it added.

These are the toy missiles.
I thought NK had ICBMs?

Before blaming it all on NK side, the MSM should really blame it on SK for "accidentally" firing on the DMZ.
They started the whole thing... not so accidentally me thinks... they are the puppet - the US are pulling all the strings.

The North Korean ICBM's may be partly mythical, not necessarily as proven as all that in terms of the technology.  I would think even Russian rockets ( ;D) would make them look poor in quality control.

Largely mythical methinks, but to the degree they are real, we (U.S.) gave them to the North Koreans via direct technology transfers and material and indirect via Pakistan during the Dr. Khan era.

Precisely.  Shadowboxing.  If we didn't have an enemy, we would have to invent one -- and arm it.
