frontier of American occupation in the East


The US hardly "occupies" S.Korea.

There are alot of American bases and personnel in South Korea but I am sure they will "abandon" the whole region like Rome did in Briton when the wall fell down and the cities burned.

Yep.

Seoul will be chopped liver in about 30 seconds from the kick-off!

scream


I don't know where people get the idea that S.Korea will somehow do something that lets that happen.

It's pretty obvious even to a guy like me with no experience of strategy that the number one priority target is the N.Korean artillery.


Well obviously but its kinda hard to do so when you can't find it. Unless...ya know, raze EVERYTHING.....literally.

yeah hard to find.

2nd LD) Lee to unveil Seoul's countermeasures against Pyongyang for naval attack


SEOUL, May 23 (Yonhap) -- President Lee Myung-bak will outline Seoul's plan to seek U.N.-led penalties against North Korea when he delivers a public speech early this week, holding the communist regime responsible for sinking one of its warships, aides said Sunday.

In the speech to be broadcast live on Monday morning, Lee also plans to unveil South Korea's own punitive actions to be taken against North Korea but those measures would not include any extreme moves such as the shutting down of a joint factory park in North Korea, they said.

Ending weeks of its investigation joined by a multinational team of specialists, South Korea announced on Thursday that a North Korean torpedo sank the 1,200-ton South Korean warship, the Cheonan, near the Yellow Sea border on March 26, killing 46 sailors.

North Korea denied involvement, calling the South Korean announcement a "sheer fabrication."

"To begin with, in his address to the people tomorrow, (President Lee) will define the Cheonan incident as a clear military provocation," Lee Dong-kwan, senior secretary for public affairs at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae, said.

Convening an emergency meeting of his National Security Council on Saturday morning, the president said the North Korean attack constitutes a violation of the U.N. Charter, the 1953 armistice agreement that effectively ended the Korean War, and the 1991 South-North Basic Agreement, under which the two sides are obliged not to invade each other.

"With regard to the frameworks of countermeasures, the president will talk about independent steps we can take and the direction of measures to be taken through international cooperation. He will mention a plan to refer the case to the U.N. Security Council," the secretary said.

"In the speech, the president will also say that if North Korea makes additional provocation, a full-range of strong countermeasures will be used," he said, adding that the president may directly mention the North's leader Kim Jong-il by name to put the blame on him.
However, many believe that South Korea has few options for its own punishment as most of inter-Korean exchanges have already been suspended.

One viable option, they say, is a ban on North Korean commercial ships that have been allowed to use a South Korean waterway off the nation's south coast under an inter-Korean maritime agreement signed in 2004. The Jeju Strait is a short-cut for North Korean ships sailing past the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula.

N.Korea would just ignore it.

And it seems from these reports that the "analysts" know as little as anyone else, since they all say different things lol.

IOW There will be no military response to the torpedo attack. Guess they know what the consequences would be. Probably the only right move, but unfortunately long-term it will just encourage more provocations from the North.
