From the looks of it, things could get ugly very quickly between the two Koreas. The Telegraph reports that the North has “completed deployment of about 50,000 special forces along the border with South Korea.” This development comes amid high tensions over the sinking of a Seoul warship by the North Korean navy.

South Korean experts believe the North wants the troops to infiltrate the South when war breaks out between them. “The threat that North Korea may infiltrate special forces for limited warfare has become real,” an unidentified senior government official told Yonhap news agency.

While the North is always preparing to continue the war that began 60 years ago, mostly in an attempt to bully the South into giving them something they desperately need, they could very well mean it this time around.

What do the North Korean Stalinists want? What’s their goal? What do they want the South Korea and the West to give them? Or isn’t this about us, but about themselves? Is this connected to some kind of an internal power struggle between rivaling factions? Or… So many questions, so few answers.
