Satellite Images Suggest S. Korea Gave Better Than They Got

You call that a shelling? Here’s a shelling

Satellite images indicate North Korea might have suffered considerable casualties when South Korea returned fire after the North shelled its frontline island last week, a lawmaker said Thursday.

The National Intelligence Service (NIS) presented to parliament an image taken by the South’s own satellite and another one collected by an unidentified foreign commercial satellite.

The South’s shells mostly landed between two clusters of barracks about 100 metres (330 feet) apart and some came close to one of the clusters.

“One of the shells hit the rear of the barracks. It is possible to assume considerable casualties occurred,” Kwon said.

    North Korea couln’t care less about the loss of life.

  2. Obviously, I have to agree with you on that. Which is why any serious conflict is dangerous, with Seoul being 30 miles south of the DMZ, with a population of over 10 million.

    And the SK did NOT do better than their northern cousins SK fired 80 shells, about 1/2 landed in the ocean. Only 14 came remotely close to the NK artillery positions, most just landed in rice paddies http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Satellite_images_show_SKorean_shelling_ineffective_999.html
