North Korean Incidents 1967-2003

The North Koreans know how to get attention.

Like a small child throwing a tantrum, the North Koreans have a long history of poking sticks in their neighbor’s eye and throwing sand in the superpower’s gears.

It was January of 1968, that they managed to capture the first United States Navy ship to be lost in such an action since the War of 1812.  Another "intelligence failure" from an earlier time.

In 2006, the U.S.S. Pueblo is still in North Korea. 

When they aren’t capturing U.S. Navy Intelligence ships, they are shooting down U.S. Navy electronic reconnaissance aircraft, or sending submarines down to South Korea, tunneling under the DMZ, or trying to kill South Korean leaders. The North Koreans seem to have a lot of time on their hands and  pride themselves on making total nuisances of themselves.

Now, they’ve got some new toys, and can make even bigger nuisances of themselves by dropping missiles on their neighbors.

Really, none of this should come as a big surprise to anybody, they’ve been doing this for years.

Here’s a list of "incidents" along the DMZ starting in 1967.
