North Korea artillery fire hits South island

SEOUL | Tue Nov 23, 2010 1:22am EST

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea on Tuesday fired dozens of artillery shells at a South Korean island, setting buildings on fire and prompting a return fire by the South, Seoul's military and media reports said.

Seoul's YTN television quoted a witness as saying 60 to 70 houses were on fire after the shelling.

The military confirmed the exchange of firing, without providing more details.

I suspect this will be the distraction of the week.

The North Koreans are like a 5 year old throwing a tantrum. Every 6 months or so, they have to remind people they are around.

They have done things like this on a regular basis since the end of the Korean conflict, but haven't made a move, and I doubt they will now. They are armed to the teeth, but their weapons are vintage, mostly 40 and 50 year old technology.

Yea, NK must be running low on supplies and with winter approaching, needs to do whatever it can to get some cash. This poo needs to stop. Just invade the country and obliterate their leadership and let their citizens know Kim is not God.

Sadly, everyone involved benefits economically if the status quo is maintained.

So as others have stated, this is just crazy Kim's way of saying "more money and food please kthnxbai".
