    Codemasters F1 2013 is going to have to offer some big realism changes if we’re down to 19 races and 11 teams…

    were not going to miss one race

  4. @prisoner-monkeys has the nose on this one. I’m very surprised that more hasn’t been made of it. The hotline is down, the dmz is being hardened, and the potential for extreme devestation is worse in Korea than anywhere else in the world, in as much as it is actively and purposefully pursuing a state led nuclear pre-emptive weapon and standpoint. Do not think that Korea is a laughable country for Americans to make fun of. Under a generation of crippling sanctions, the military rule (in practice, if not in principle) is enforced completely, and the military of N.Korea consume the vast majority of GDP. This is a country that does not care what any other country thinks, and nor does it care what damage it does to it’s own citizens as a result of it’s own actions. Iran must seem a pussycat in comparison when global leaders are discussing different nations. N.Korea haven’t even used the bargaining chip of nuclear weapons to even try to get sanctions lifted for goodness sake. They’ve developed a trump card as far as global diplomacy is concerned, and they’re not going to play it? Why not? If not to use it in anger??
    I personally think that S.Korea is currently a much more dangerous place to be than Bahrain has ever been. Bahrain might have had localised violence and tens/hundreds of deaths, but S.Korea is under threat of nuclear attack for goodness sake, and the potential for hundreds of thousands of ongoing fatalities from a single strike.
    I wouldn’t go there, even at the moment, unless I was being paid serious danger money, and in the event that rhetoric moves up a level, I just wouldn’t go there full stop.
