        Just the day after the official appearance of the DPRK leader in public.
        Apparently, the South Korean border guards lost the bet, but did not want to give up the “rival”.

          At the border of the DPRK and South Korea, firing took place

          Yes ... But there wasn’t such a thing.

          (Comment on materials https://topwar.ru/60434-koreyskaya-narodnaya-armiya-strelkovoe-i-tyazheloe-pehotnoe-vooruzhenie-chast-1.html)

          On the night of September 18, 1996, a North Korean submarine, performing an reconnaissance mission in the territorial waters of South Korea, inadvertently ran aground near the coast near the city of Gangneung.
          The measures taken by the crew to remove the mini-submarine aground did not bring any result.
          North Korean sailors and commandos decided to break through to their homeland, but were spotted by a local taxi driver.
          For several weeks, tens of thousands of South Korean soldiers combed the surrounding mountains in search of them. Killed 12 North Korean commandos and 5 crew members of the submarine, and the surrounded North Koreans committed suicide. Of the special forces themselves, by the way, no one surrendered.
          With incredible difficulty, the armada of persecutors managed to captivate only one of the team of the northerners - Li Kwang-su. The South Koreans suffered incomparably large losses - the total number of victims came close to 140, with a ratio of almost 1: 1 in terms of the number of dead and wounded, in addition, 4 American soldiers died.
          A few years later, according to information leaked to the South Korean press from local intelligence, it became known that the only North Korean special forces survivor from that unfortunate boat, even after being wounded in the stomach, managed to go through the heavily fortified demilitarized zone and return to his homeland, where he was received as a hero. Moreover, the submarine team itself, as we are sure now, was shot immediately after landing by its own special forces. The commandos probably considered that the sailors, due to their poor physical fitness, would not be able to go back and could surrender. The government of the Republic of Korea paid a reward of several hundred thousand dollars to the taxi driver who discovered the North Koreans.

    Everything goes according to plan, even in the American media they do not hide it:
    The American The Hill, in an article entitled “The Dangers of Incrementalism” (the policy of making decisions divorced from reality), calls the war a means of solving the problem of full employment in America:

    Ending the Depression required the government to adopt a full employment policy. That was the economic meaning of World War II: guaranteed work at government expense. The same response is needed today. Government will be forced there as incrementalism fails. That which we do reluctantly, however, we are likely to do poorly. Government must, instead, act boldly and confidently now.

        Do you seriously consider the possibility of war between South and North Korea?
        Look at the photo for the article, or rather the shape of the Holodroots from the north.
        In the event of an offensive, North Korea will be able to wedge no deeper than 3-5 km into the depths of the southerners, and they will not even resist, because northerners will run into 3-5 powerful echelons of defense, in the form of 40 foot sea containers with clothes, household items, food in the form of coca call and chips, etc. Then there will be a deepest existential crisis of the northerners, after which, with even greater enthusiasm, they will break back to the north, tear Una and the whole top into tiny shreds.

          After 300 guns per kilometer of the front, even the buildings do not remain intact.
          After such a shelling, the southerners would rather believe in Juche ideas, especially if there would be nothing to eat.

    Well, this has never happened and here again ...
    According to unconfirmed reports, several bullets hit the border post without hitting anyone, according to others - there were no hits, no injuries
    And in the third - there was no shooting at all, in the fourth - the South Korean border guards shot the DPRK in the air, and in the fifth - they were the first to shoot

    South Korean border guards put on alert along the entire demarcation line

    KPA intelligence apparently decided to check the response time of the "empirialists" ....
    The photo is funny .... it is clear that the KPA commando is smiling and hangs "noodles on his ears" in the military unit of the Air Force of the Republic of Kazakhstan ...
    Typically, such "shootings" occur after a series of publications by the South Korean media that "" Sun is dead or ill ....

      Probably all is easier. Whatever the runner from the DPRK wanted to break into South Korea in the area of ​​the border post, but apparently did not work out. On the other hand, they probably also knew that there would be a transition, and therefore did not open return fire since they understood the reason for the shooting and did not begin to aggravate the situation because of the defector, confining themselves to a note. Routine in a word.

    1. And I think you that the indigenous Korean troops from the South Korean protectorate of the United States will not resist. But the American occupation forces will show some resistance.
    2. Clothing and Coca-Cola will not only not stop the northerners, but will accelerate their advance to the south where clothes and Coca-Cola await them on an even larger scale. Since there is no clothing and Coca-Cola to the north, then returning to the north does not make any sense.
