    Technically, we’ve never stopped being at War with North Korea.

    Great observation, Nick.

    And I’m not talking so much about us (U.S.), but how the hell does South Korea tolerate what the North is doing?

    (I understand about Seoul and the guns aimed at it, but at some point you’ve got to shoot the guy holding the gun to your head.)

    I heard a radio news announcer quote a US government official who called this an act of belligerence. I was stunned.

    Point of order – the US was never “at war” with North Korea (UN resolutions and police actions were the rage even in 1950). However, the Koreas are still at war, and the conditions to rescind or otherwise sunset the UN resolutions never happened.

    The fact that South Korea’s counter-battery fire worked actually bodes somewhat-almost-modestly well for Seoul.
