N. Korea threats force change in flight paths. - March 7th 2009, 01:28 AM

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29544823/
Quote:
Air Canada and Singapore Airlines joined South Korean airlines in rerouting flights to steer clear of North Korean airspace Friday after the communist regime threatened Seoul's passenger planes amid heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula. North Korea warned late Thursday that it cannot guarantee the safety of South Korea's passenger jets flying near its airspace if annual joint U.S.-South Korean military maneuvers go ahead as planned Monday.
Quote:
South Korea's two main airlines, Korean Air and Asiana Airlines, immediately began redirecting flights away from the North's airspace. On Friday, at least two foreign airlines, Air Canada and Singapore Airlines, also changed flight paths to and from Seoul, an official at the Civil Aviation Safety Authority said. He agreed to discuss the matter only if not quoted by name because he was not authorized to talk with journalists. The two American carriers that fly to South Korea, Delta Air Lines Inc. and UAL Corp., said their routes did not take their planes near North Korea and they had not canceled or rerouted flights.
Quote:
Pyongyang's warning was the latest threat from North Korea at a time of mounting tensions over stalled reconciliation efforts and the North's plan for a missile test. The two Koreas technically remain at war because their bitter 1950-53 war ended in a cease-fire rather than a peace treaty. Relations have worsened since conservative South Korean President Lee Myung-bak took office a year ago and refused to provide the impoverished North with aid unless the regime abided by its commitment to dismantle its nuclear program. North Korea cut off ties, canceled joint inter-Korean projects and declared peacekeeping agreements with the South void.

Sadly this may be true. I'm not a big fan of a few parts of South Korea so getting rid of them would be fine, or just the people.

So you support genocide? That's what I'm getting from this.

North Korea is just trying to appear scary and mighty. Even if they did have nuclear weapons, the world-wide response to a nuclear attack (or any attack) would be so overwhelming that the North Korean regime would collapse within a short amount of time.

Depends on whose attacking and whose being attacked, then I may or may not support it. True, North Korea probably would get blown to pieces but, I'm sure they'd hit South Korea a few times and even if they didn't have nuclear weapons, at least some damage will have been dealt.
