North Korean Leader Puts Troops on War Footing: UK Newspaper

The Telegraph is reporting that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has placed front line troops on a war footing after an exchange of gun fire with South Korean troops.

The Korean War was never officially ended and a cease-fire has been in place since 1953.  Unlike in Viet-Nam, Korea has remained heavily supported by the American military ever since the Eisenhower administration brokered the cease-fire in the early 1950s.

With uprisings occurring around the world on what seems like a regular basis, it should not be surprising that North Korea would seek to press any advantage.  This situation bears the closest scrutiny and monitoring.
