Well, there was no counter-attack from the North Korean military (thankfully!!) to Monday's resumption of the S. Korean artillery exercises on Yeonpyeong...
KPA's chief of staff explained: "This was nothing but a childish play with fire of cowards... The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK did not feel any need to retaliate against every despicable military provocation like one taking revenge after facing a blow." (^^)
So the crisis of a large-scale armed clash between South Korea and North Korea appears to have been avoided for the time being...
But, dear audience, please stay tuned!(*)

* Because it might well be that the coming "holiday season" is/will be a f*cking great opportunity to initiate large-scale armed clash, resp. to declare war!! Yesterday's K. Times: "S. Korea ready for surprise attack ahead of Christmas"...
S.K. armed forces were put on the highest alert around Aegibong, a mountain peak located just three kilometers from the DMZ, as S.K. Christian maniacs, supported by the gov't and backed my the military, held a ceremony last night to turn on Christmas lights:
Looks like a superb target for N.K.'s short-range artillery...(^^)

PS: It seems that the S. Korean armed forces - like their "colleagues" in the North - are already geared up for the "final battle", i.e. the forcibly reunification...
Written on the S. Korean soldiers' headbands: “Tongil”(통일) means “unification” and
“Myeolgong”(멸공) means “eradicate the communists.” The (f*cking stupid) message
being, “Let’s unify Korea by eradicating the communists!”
