Korean Kraziness

By Spear's

An international panel of experts have examined the wreck and set out the convincing evidence that incriminates North Korea.

The loss of the South Korean warship Cheonan in March with the death of 46 sailors is now revealed to have been caused by a North Korean torpedo fired from a North Korean submarine. An international panel of experts have examined the wreck and set out the convincing evidence that incriminates North Korea.

Actually, the independent report simply confirms what most already suspected, but the question is Pyongyang’s motivation, and Seoul’s likely response. The faltering regime in the North does not even conform to Chinese logic, making it hard to predict what lies behind the denials of responsibility and the blustering threats fo war in the event of reprisals.

As for South Korea and its American allies, the options seem limited, short of a retaliation that could play into Kim’s hands. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has been wringing her hands, insisting there will be a united response, but what has she in mind?
