Korea and South China Sea are like Florida and the Gulf of Mexico.  Hardly something happens at one of these places without an alarm going on at the other.  This year's typhoon season has been particularly busy.  Navigating these treacherous seas has never been harder.  For those who seek the thrill of high adventure, now has never been a better time to live in.  For those to be adversely affected, now is the worst time to be living.  While leaders and generals seemingly make the "decisions", reality may be stranger than fiction, for the unseen thoughts and feelings of the leaders and generals, in the last analysis have decided the destiny of their peoples.

A super-typhoon seems headed for the Korean peninsula, after passing through the South China Sea.  Much as we all wish for the typhoon not to make any landfall, heaven only knows when it will do so.  The "unthinkable" seems unavoidable.  "If the days had not been shortened, no flesh would have been saved" - truly so.

In my opinion, it is the media that stirs up the "tension" and the politicians are hand-tight. Nobody wants a war. The media is a different story.

We are seeing the phase of deception in play which for all intents and purposes is part of the coming war.  Media plays a big role in deceiving the masses, but can also deceive the leaders if they lack means of verifying the media reports.  One way for ordinary folks to gauge the imminence of actual conflict is to be aware of either the absence of any news or the plethora of conflicting news and opinions that they cannot tell what is really going on.  Neither the calm nor the rain determines the outcome, it is the flash flood that really matters, but it will never be announced.  For the ordinary folks with their feet touching the ground, where the flood waters will be coming from, which may be very different from where the wind comes from, or where the downpour is heaviest, determines their fate.  It is sad that while the uniforms know best how to protect themselves, the people whom they are tasked to protect, know the least.  This is a weakness, not a sign of strength.

Why should media deceive/fool people around, what for?  Don't you need to upgrade your own way of thinking in perceiving the outside world like that?  Don't always blame others being dishonest or hiding the truth away from you unless YOU ARE AN DISHONEST PERSON YOURSELF there...

By the same logic, are you not therefore even more dishonest with yourself?

I tend to treat most people around me as honest and candid rather than constantly regarding them as untrustworthy ones.  Make things easier won't devaluate your own wisdom really.
