Apparently, North Korea has postponed talks with South Korea because the latter beefed up its defenses in anticipation of the US attack on Iraq. Shep on FoxNews tells me so. Anyway, I guess the talks are off for now. That’s not encouraging.
Related, the 1st Cav Division in Fort Hood, TX is on alert. They could move out the Persian Gulf if needed, but I’ve read that they are specifically trained for combat on the Korean penninsula. Hmmm. Trained for Korea…On alert but not loading up at this time…what could it mean?
