Shots Fired Across North and South Korean Border
This is a very disturbing incident considering the high tension level that exists between the two nations. Making the situation even more tense is the possibility of a nuclear test by North Korea looming in the near future.
North Korea is a renegade nation and is very unpredictable in terms of its affairs.
The North Koreans claim that they fear for their existence because of previous threats by President George Bush when he included the North in his famous 'axis of evil' speech. Since that time, the North Koreans stepped up both their nuclear development and the further development of missile technology.
Tensions are very high along the border today.
