president lee is a pussy.

he should have quickly mobilised his army and sent them to their positions and demanded "" whatever "" from the north...

but then again the north did say that the south started it...

Well from that news post,. I'd say that Lee is either asking for
permission of the people to take Kim down,.
Or, he is again just handing out IOU's

President have spoken!

Lee calls N. Korea's attack 'inhumane,' calls for national unity



Seoul. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Monday strongly condemned North Korea's recent shelling of a South Korean border island, saying an attack against civilians is an "inhumane" crime strictly prohibited even during a war, Yonhap News Agency reported.
"I can't contain my anger over the North Korean regime's cruelty that ignores even the lives of children," Lee said in a televised speech.
He pledged that Seoul will make Pyongyang pay a price corresponding to any future provocations.
Lee said the North's deadly artillery strike on Yeonpyeong Island, where about 1,400 people resided, shows that it would be hard to expect the communist nation to abandon its nuclear program and military brinkmanship.
Lee appealed to the South Korean people for unity, saying a "unified people" would take national security to its strongest level.

Lee Vows to Make North Korea Pay for Attack as China Urges Talks



"It’s become clear that more patience and tolerance only leads to bigger provocations," Lee said today in a national address from Seoul. "North Korea will be made to pay for any further provocation no matter what."

In the US whenever a sitting President wants a war they always seem to quote Lincoln.
This kind of sounds similar in a Korean sort of way.

I just started reading this, but when I see "Unified" and Korea in the same sentence it usually means unifying North and South Korea.

War or real peace treaty?

If "we" were attacked, and the president said "next time it happens, we are going to respond..." I would expect an assassination in less than 24 hours.

Not communist.

They're Juche. Anyone trying to understand this conflict would be wise to read up on what that means. Calling NK "communist" is simplistic to the point of absurdity - akin to calling a table a horse because it has 4 legs.

hmmm the entire b-2 fleet dropping MOAB's across good old pyong with a side of a strategic cruise missile barrage followed by bringing the old B-52's back in action for a good old cluster dump..... that should spark things up a bit wouldnt you think. in my eyes they should just put up and fight or shut up and unite.

Maybe MR.LEE will tell the S.K. civilian that "don't worry ,Mr.Obama is with us,he can protect us, you see his aircraft carrier has already been here."....Just guess..hehehe....

germany was re-united peacefully, although it took the destruction of the soviet empire to accomplish it.

so i guess the only way to re-unify korea would be the destruction of communist china or the destruction of either north or south korea.

the chinese and united states would never allow that to happen respectively.

this stalemate will last indefinately, unless the u.s. can come to some finiancial terms to compensate china for the loss of n.korea if n.korea should lose.

I study communism all the time. Just because it is not text book communism does not mean it is not a variation of it, which it is. Obviously there are no countries that follow Lenin's communist theory perfectly, because as he describes, communist revolution depends on the "peculiarity" of the country and people involved.

Why should the US compensate China for North Korea? The Chinese chose to back North Korea at the urging of Stalin right when the US/UN forces had the North Koreans beat. That was their choice. Now look at this mess. We have taken out our old Cold War proxy [Saddam] in the ME. Russia and China need to deal with theirs. [North Korea] Does China have a big enough pair to not only admit their mistake but to also deal with North Korea like we dealt with Saddam?

It has cost the US a fortune to rid the ME of Saddam.
We [US/West-Russia/China] will have to live with our Cold War proxy ghosts and pay the price. If that Means China has to take a loss then so be it.

Compensate China Pffft.

The North for decades has always brought up "Unification" while simultaneously regurgitate it's line of aggression against the South. This is the first time I've heard the South even remotely airing something similar.

South Korean President mentioning "unification"?

That's interesting, indeed. Can't seem to recall, right off hand, ever hearing that before...

Korea unified is long overdue, in my view. A relic of a cold war era better left behind. Not forgotten, mind you...but left behind.

Given the "gettoitivness" of the Korean work a day citizen, I should think that unification here, would go much more smoothly than Germany's did, or is.

This incident will, if given a chance to by both sides, blow over like they all have...here's praying for common sense to break out, rather than war.
