Dick Waving Gets More Frantic

With instructions from the pentagon to be sure. And it must be remembered that in spite of despicable MSM lies (much like the endlessly repeated Iranian "wipe Israel off the map" deliberate mistranslation) it was the South Koreans who admitted starting this latest mess by firing live rounds into disputed areas, ignoring the north's objections and warnings.
There's something about these threats and all the posturing, almost like empire is counting on the asian tradition of saving face to exacerbate tensions and to start a new Korean war.

S. Korean jets will bomb North if it attacks again

"SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's next defense chief threatened Friday that jets would bomb the North if it stages another attack like last week's deadly shelling as he outlined a tough new military policy toward the rival neighbor.

President Lee Myung-bak's government is suffering intense criticism that its response to North Korea's Nov. 23 barrage on a South Korean island was weak, and over the stunning revelation that the South's spy chief dismissed information in August indicating the North might attack the front-line island of Yeonpyeong.

Lee's nominee, Kim Kwan-jin, told a parliamentary confirmation hearing that further North Korean aggression will result in airstrikes. He said South Korea will use all its combat capabilities to retaliate.

"In case the enemy attacks our territory and people again, we will thoroughly retaliate to ensure that the enemy cannot provoke again," Kim said.

The Semen Gap

"Despite the bold declarations, questions have been raised about Lee's readiness — and even willingness — to stand up to the North. The president has been criticized for leading a military whose response to the attack was seen as too slow and too weak. The North fired 170 rounds, compared with 80 returned by South Korea."
