South Korean President Moon has said that S. Korea will veto a preemptive US strike on N. Korea:
http://news.antiwar.com/2017/08/15/sout ... rth-korea/

A question is whether a S. Korean veto would prevail

Recall that Dubya asked the UN for permission to attack Iraq and when it wasn't granted he unleashed Shock and Awe, anyway.

When is an attack not an attack?

When it is a "bloody nose attack," or at least there ae some who claim to believe that the North Koreans, Chinese, and Russians will accept this opinion:

The link below contains fake news in he first paragraph:
https://news.antiwar.com/2018/05/22/aid ... adrs-bloc/

The US did in fact have something to do with Mookie al-Sadr.

First, General Petraeus tried to kill him by bombing his alleged whereabouts a couple of times, just as all emerging resistance leaders in the Mid-East are killed by helicopter or drone-fired rockets, and then Petraeus invited him in for a friendly chat, which Mookie refused.

So, it seems a little late to try to make nice with him.

The South Korean Democrat Party won the election because the previous President from the conservative Grand National Party (GNP) political party was impeached for embezzlement.

I get the Korean peninsula confused with the Crimean peninsula, but at least I know that they are part of the Alaskan peninsula bordering the US territories of Iran, Yukon, and Syria and that Sarah Palin can see them from her kitchen window.

The North and South part of Korea have suspended war games\, but I don't know if the East and West have.
