NKorea accuses South of using civilians as shields

Post  CharlesDudleyJr on Sat Nov 27, 2010 8:18 am

North Korea accused South Korea of using civilians as human shields around artillery positions on an island attacked by the North, seeking to justify a bombardment that killed four South Koreans and sent tensions soaring.

The comments Saturday came on the eve of U.S.-South Korean war games in the Yellow Sea that have enraged the North and worried neighboring China, and after the South Korean marine commander vowed revenge at a funeral for two marines killed in the barrage.

Tuesday's attack on Yeonpyeong Island, which houses military bases and tiny fishing communities, also killed two civilians in one of the worst artillery attacks on South Korean territory since the 1950-53 Korean War.

North Korea's state news agency said that although "it is very regrettable, if it is true, that civilian casualties occurred on Yeonpyeong island, its responsibility lies in enemies' inhumane action of creating a 'human shield' by deploying civilians around artillery positions."

I remember as we were fixing to invade Iraq how Kim Jong-il was totally ignored as he was pounding his chest like a Silverback ape, shouting out that he had WMD. I think he likes the attention.
BTW, that silverback ape thing was a friend of mine's words that have stuck with me all this time.
