During my break I noted that North Korea had decided to declare war on the USA and on South Korea.
One thing to note is that they are showing footage of guns firing on their television station as if they are trying to convince the North Koreans that they are in a state of war. However, not a shot has been fired.
North Korea has a habit of pulling this form of stunt in the hope of getting aid from various nations intent upon stopping any warfare. It has worked in the past when the USA gave them aid to stop the sabre rattling.
Please drop a link in comments if you read anything that shows that this time North Korea is serious.
UPDATE: something to consider about what direction NoKo could take in any given war. This story comes from the Daily Caller. It would seem to me that the only way that such a backward country could gain new technological skills would be for the Chinese to be helping them. China is very good with this kind of cyber attacks and warfare and it is highly likely that China has been passing on those skills to the North Koreans.
This leads me to ask a more serious question: Could China decide to use North Korea as a proxy for starting war with the West? Is there any hope that China could be pressured to stop North Korea from conducting a war that nobody wants? Or is it a case of China working behind the scenes.
Always keep in mind that China was very pissed off when it lost the sphere of influence it had in Libya. Using North Korea as a proxy could be one way of retaliating against the USA and other nations who went to the assistance of the Libyan rebels. (Please note I am speculating with regard to possible motivations.)
