Okay all better. Calling me old is an awesome way to make your point.
My dear sir, you have 'retired' as part of your screen name. Do not be surprised if others make 'old' or 'has been' jokes, you are setting the stage for it with your handle.
The majority of your thread shows a strange lack of understanding of what you are writing. Intimidating the US by putting missiles in an ally's (ie, Cuba's) sovereign territory, as the USSR did, is somehow vastly different from intimidating NKorea by performing live firing exercises with NATO allies in the one part of your sovereign territory that is extremely close to NKorea?
You honestly think that location was chosen randomly, completely innocently? And, once NKorea fired back, to continue to insist on doing so is somehow NOT acting provocatively?
SKorea certainly has every right to do so, as I have said, but nobody, absolutely nobody, should be surprised if this turns into a **** storm of large proportions, because when you keep annoying a mentally unstable lunatic, sooner or later the lunatic will react.
It is generally suggested that 'a word to the wise is sufficient', but SKorea and its allies seem intent on annoying NKorea until something happens. I think it's an unwise course of action, because it seems quite obvious what will happen, but I suppose if people are hoping for war to resume on the Korean peninsula, I can understand the insistence that SKorea should continue.
But, you know, I'll defer to your incredible understanding and perceptive knowledge of world affairs.
