South Korea has reportedly deployed more long-range artillery and rocket launchers on Yeonpyeong Island, a border island struck by a North Korean shelling last week, according to military officials.There is more.
On Monday, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said South Korea will "firmly" respond to future provocations from North Korea and declared that his nation "cannot remain patient" in the face of continued hostility from Pyongyang.
"Fellow citizens, at this point, actions are more important than words," Lee said in a televised address. "Please have trust in the government and the military and support us."
I think it will be politically impossible for South Korea to keep turning the other cheek. The North Korean regime should expect a furious response to the next provocation.
