North And South Korea Exchange Border Gunfire

Tyler Durden's picture


Months of total quiet on the geopolitical front, and then we have bomb threats, a French aircraft carrier joining the US fleet in the Persian Gulf (we have no idea where it will fit), evacuated cars, and now Korean gunfire. Only thing missing is a mushroom cloud (either real or holographic) emanating from one of Iran's nuclear power plants.

From the Telegraph:

North and South Korea troops have exchanged fire at the tense border between the two neighbours, an official said on Friday.

The exchange of fire in the Demilitarised Zone highlights the security problems faced by Seoul as it prepares to host the G20 economic summit next month.

There were no South Korean injuries and it was unclear whether it was an accident or an intentional provocation, said the official, who asked not to be named.

The firing of the 14.5-mm rounds came hours after North Korea criticised the South for rejecting a proposal to hold military talks and vowed to retaliate.

Despite the incident, previously arranged reunions of hundreds of families separated by the Korean War will go ahead on Saturday in the North as scheduled, South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Chun Hae-sung said.

The spike in tensions ysterday came two weeks ahead of a global economic summit in Seoul to be attended by President Barack Obama and other leaders.

Last week, the North's military proposed holding talks with South Korea over anti-North Korean leafletting by South Korean activists and other South Korean propaganda activities, the North's military said in a statement on Friday carried by the country's official Korean Central News Agency.

Makes you wonder.  So, which city in Amerika gets the first mushroom cloud so that they can call off the elections like they wanted to do in 2008?  But that is not important.  Did you see who got kicked off Dancing with the Dilholes this week?  I mean, can you believe it?

Do not laugh folks the Alien invasion to reign in global government and global currency is undoubtedly next. There are more UFO stories than in recent memory in the mainstream media. 

China closes down airports twice due to UFO activity

Russian UFO 

NYC UFO event 2 weeks ago appearing on the exact day that a former airforce official predicted in his book which was highly pubclized on the main stream media a month prior

UN appoints alien ambassador last month

Nuclear facilities being shut off in both the U.S. & UK by UFOs. 

All these news events are verifiable. It will take nothing short of Darth Vader & a potential death Star to keep the masses aligned for the Earth Bucks which are about to roll off the printing presses.

I just can't help but think, popular opinion notwithstanding, that aliens so much more technologically advanced than us (say, 200 years?) would not have the slightest interest in either us or our planet.  We'd be like mice to them. 

Now, our government playing with their toys to manipulate us, on the other hand . . .

Is that 200 free market years, or 200 "mixed market" years?

If it's the latter, then they really must be just weather balloons.

One side of me agrees that the government is fucking with us with their toys, but wouldn't they want to push that through the mainstream channels?  The people that love their TV is still greater than the ones who get their information elsewhere. 

The other side of me believes that we are indeed of no interest of beings outside of our planet.

Since I am tripolar, the third side of me says "Who cares either way."

That is the problem.  We second guess our initial guess based on the fact that we think that they think that we know what they think.  So when we think they know what we think...forget about it. 

All I know is that Jim Rogers called the fact QE was a primer and QE would continue.  I believed him and we will see it come to fruition next week.  Weeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

See what I mean?  QE is like Christmas, where the children have been encouraged to doubt whether Santa would really be coming, based on whether they've been "naughty or nice."

Relax.  Sleep in.  It will be just another Christmas morning, crap pouring from beneath the tree.  No coal for anybody . . . unless they've truly been good, I suppose.

Dear Santa,

I was really good this year.  Since I was so good I thought perhaps you could not give me anything this year, but instead take something back.  Could you please take back your elf Timmy the Treasurer?  I know he caused many problems in the shop, but perhaps you could relocate him to island of misfits for a couple of years.  He has been very bad and the Chinese have bought up all of the coal.

I guess my biggest question is, if they are from outerspace, where did they come from?  Meaning, given the distance to the nearest place we presume might sustain life of their kind, how did they get here?  The humanoid aliens are hundreds+ years old?  Is that why they crash here?  They're dead?  Issues of whether we're worthy to come examine given they would clearly have a telescope/devise to watch us like a fish bowl.

I think we're left with two possible conclusions: (1) these thinks are hoaxes; or (2) someone (government) is playing with their toys.  Presuming the latter, given a lot of the g loading for the maneuvers made by the things are probably incapable of being survived by humans, I suspect they're radio controlled ala drone planes.  So there you have it.

There's no aliens here, other planets are too far. If there are UFOs that don't belong to an Earth country then they are either other humanoids that bounced around from planets and moons in our own solar system OR they are Nazis who escaped to Antartica.

Two Aliens debating on whether or not it's worth it to fly 10 million light years just to anal probe a few humans.  

"Are you kidding?  Do you have any idea how many jobs are provided by the anal probing industry?"

"Yea I get it but 10 million light years and trillions of dollars later and all we've managed to learn is that 1 in 10 don't seem to mind it.  Government waste at its best."

The good news: The world's governments have finally woken up to the necessity of a gold standard!

The bad news: The fed has spent years combing the galaxy to find the right bunch of aliens to come over and colonise us... a race who's metabolism works on the fission of heavy metals.

That's right - they shit gold! So now the Fed can debase that, too.

The annual cost of U.S. intelligence is public for the first time: just over $80 billion for 2010.

Figures released by the government Thursday show $27 billion goes to military intelligence and $53.1 billion covers the CIA and some of the other 16 intelligence agencies.

For every dollar spent on intelligence, you save $10+ on military ordnance.  Intelligence has, since the beginning of time, provided the best return on's a dirty world, and it gets dirtier every day.  Just a fact of life.  Too bad, but it is what it is.

I will make pina coladas and watch re-runs of my two favorite gov't subsidized shows, Dancing With the Whores and Jersey Whore. Then I will enjoy my eating microwaved pizza and drinking Corona light until my pants get too tight for me to breath.

This is probably for real. NK regime change, Junior needs to stir up the military and establish the new pecking order. That's the problem with these military-based governments, when your only tool is a bullet everything looks like an enemy.

It will blow over. Unless the NKs are hungry and at risk of starvation. In which case it will continue.

How About A Haircut?

Probably was due to some mad Chinese general who has a S&P put position. He calls his buddy on the border for a favor.....  and next week that dude will get a case of Cubanos, one of Jack Daniels and some other goodies...
