New S. Korean president says high possibility of war.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday there was a "high possibility" of conflict with North Korea, which is pressing ahead with nuclear and missile programs it says it needs to counter U.S. aggression.

The comments came hours after the South, which hosts 28,500 U.S. troops, said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as Moon seeks a two-track policy, involving sanctions and dialogue, to try to rein in its neighbor.

North Korea has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the U.S. mainland and has ignored calls to halt its nuclear and missile programs, even from China, its lone major ally.

It conducted its latest ballistic missile launch, in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, on Sunday which it said was a test of its capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead", drawing Security Council condemnation.

"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line,"
Moon was quoted as saying by the presidential Blue House.
Told you guys.

Everyone assumed that the situation had returned to normal but when an entire carrier battle group suddenly goes silent, we don't hear about PACOM declaring "normal operating status" and the vaunted Navy SEALs aren't talking about how great the training was and how awesome it is to be back home banging the hookers at Coronado that something bad is brewing.

The S. Korean President just confirmed my suspicions.

Keep your eyes on the Korean Peninsula.  Everything is not normal....
