"Tensions escalated on the Korean peninsula today as the two Koreas exchange fire for the fourth time in recent years near the western maritime border."

This time 1 South Korean soldier is dead and 15 injured. I really hope this doesn't escalate into anything bigger but it just might cause these North Koreans are the most brainwashed nation ever. It's so sad to see that country.

Jealousy is a crazy thing. Korea is an example of what poor leadership can do to a country.

I read somewhere that North Koreans are 12cm shorter on average than their southern neighbors because of bad living conditions and poor nutrition. They're basically the same nation for gods sake.

North Korea isn't just like the black sheep of the family; it's like the black unicorn of the family, whose unicorn parents drank heavily during the pregnancy. It rarely gets more awkward than that.

But who knows? Maybe they're just going through an awkward phase. I'm still waiting on Kim Jong-il to die. Is it me or does being a ruthless dictator add decades to your lifespan? I wonder if he'd be willing to share any longevity tips...

Don't they???

The president of Egypt (Mubarak) is the biggest dictator I ever knew (apart from Hitler). He is 84 years old and has been the president for 23 years(!), mainly because of election rigging, unfair practices, etc...

I've went off-topic, haven't I :P
