This is an act of war, South Korea has the right to retaliate. No sane person wants to war to break out but this act calls for swift action. Time for a regime change for North Korea!

I think mainly we are just calling a spade a spade here Andy. Let's hope it is just an accident but if it is why would the SK ship be firing at anythting?
The 1,500-ton ship sank between 9 and 10 p.m. near the island, but the cause of the accident was not immediately known, officials said.
A rescue operation was under way, and there were no immediate reports of casualties.
There were no further details about the shooting incident.
The ship was sinking near Baengnyeong island, Yonhap news agency quoted navy officials as saying.
It also said the South Korean ship had fired shots toward an unidentified ship in the North. The incident has not been confirmed by government officials.

The thing that worries me is lil bastard kim just threatened(again)to fire nukes at the south. He is also rumoured to be suffering from kidney failure: www.dailymail.co.uk... Question is,is he on deaths door,and wishing to go out in a nuclear blaze of "glory"...He certainly wouldn't be forgotten about for a long time if it was indeed him who set the world on fire. I think he wants to be remembered for all time,by all the world. And in his twisted mind,this could be the way to do just that.

However, a full-on sinking of a ship, with multiple casualties could ignite something else.
