North Korea fired artillery and South Korea responded with warning shots along their disputed western sea border Wednesday, but there were no immediate reports of casualties and the North later said its barrage was part of a continuing military drill.
North Korea fired about 30 artillery rounds into the sea from its coast and the South immediately responded by firing 100 warning shots from a marine base on an island near the sea border, an officer at the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Seoul said.
North Korea has an intercontinental missile delivery system, and could have nuclear weapons within a few months. They could make a "dirty bomb" today from the nuclear waste generated by their power plants.
South Korea is under America's military protection.
Don't expect anyone in government to pay attention to this developing problem.
