Is North Korea’s DMZ Bunker Drills A Sign of Impending Provocation?

» by in: North Korea

I would be more surprised if the North Koreans were not training for this:

North Korea has been conducting military drills with mock-up targets of South Korean front-line bunkers, a senior military source said Thursday, further raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula following its missile launches.

The North Korean Army has conducted infiltration drills under scenarios in which the artillery units strike mock-up military camp sites similar to the South Korean Army’s general posts (GPs) and general outposts (GOPs) in the middle of day.

“The North Korean military has openly carried out the drills with very specific targets to make surprise attacks or infiltrate into GPs or GOPs,” the source said, asking for anonymity. [Yonhap]

    I seem to remember an exercise the North Koreans carried out in the spring, although I think it was in late April like this. It freaked the division out enough that we were put on alert. We had a live band that was going to play for 8 hours (a rare event in the Western Corridor) at our club that night. So soldiers in various states of sobriety were placed along the post perimeter, given initial targets (security lights mainly) then handed live ammo and told if it moves beyond the fence shoot it, but do not load a round until ordered to. After a couple of hours I guess there were talks at PMJ to deescalate the event and we now sober soldiers went back to finish listening to the band.

    Not really, Glans.

    Like driving fast and funking fat chicks, guns are more fun when drunk.

    Yup. North Korea’s like that annoying kid at the playground that kept shouting, “Mommy, look at this!” every time he did something he mistakenly thought was impressive or interesting.
