South Korea Tests New Precision Strike Cruise Missile

The South Koreans are showing off their new cruise missile technology to the North Koreans in response to the recent nuclear test:

South Korea unveiled a cruise missile on Thursday that it said can hit the office of North Korea’s leaders, trying to address concerns that it is technologically behind its unpredictable rival which this week conducted its third nuclear test.

South Korean officials declined to say the exact range of the missile but said it could hit targets anywhere in North Korea.

The Defence Ministry released video footage of the missiles being launched from destroyers and submarines striking mock targets. The weapon was previewed in April last year and officials said deployment was now complete.

“The cruise missile being unveiled today is a precision-guided weapon that can identify and strike the window of the office of North Korea’s leadership,” ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters.  [Reuters]

    When I was a normal-size 12 year old boy, the neighborhood bully (16 years old, 6 foot, 220lbs) cornered me on my paper route one morning before light. He said that he would let me get the first punch in the fight. He closed his eyes and put his hands behind his back, angling his face so that his jaw was protruding forward. I decided not to hit him first. South Koreans are not so smart. You shoot a missle into Pyoungyang, and you are going to be very very sorry. They really think they can beat the North; that is the funny part of it.

    “South Koreans are not so smart. You shoot a missle into Pyoungyang, and you are going to be very very sorry. They really think they can beat the North; that is the funny part of it”.

    Baek In-Je — so you’re trying to mock South Koreans for doing something they actually HAVEN’T done? Insult humor only works if it’s intelligent — that is the funny part of it.

    Actually BAEK IN-JE, you’re the one that’s not so smart if you think the ROK is going to follow your retarded fantasy scenario (ah, you’d like that, wouldn’t you?).
