US "determined" to ride to the rescue:


US condemns North Korean attack on South Korea

(AP) – 15 hours ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is strongly condemning North Korea's artillery attack against the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.

In a statement released before dawn Tuesday, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs calls on North Korea to "halt its belligerent action."

He says the United States is "firmly committed" to South Korea's defense, and to the "maintenance of regional peace and stability."

The White House spokesman says the U.S. is in "close and continuing contact" with the South Korean government.

North Korea fired barrages of artillery onto the South Korean island near their disputed western border Tuesday, setting buildings ablaze and killing at least one marine after warning the South to halt nearby military drills in the area, South Korean officials said.

The US "magic button". Wartime budget for inflation.

Seoul and possibly Tokyo will be nuked. Ten, hundreds of thousands of dead. Two countries in ruin. Thats a real positive for the world economy.

US Treasury futures rising is not a positive, its a reaction to fear. N.Korea would probably overrun the south within hours.
