Tension between the two Koreas

CNN-Explainer: Why are the two Koreas so hostile?

|AP News|Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s tour likely to be dominated by the new flare-up on the Korean peninsula. The US is committing to supporting South Korea; using force appears out of the question, though. There are diplomatic steps possible, like stiffening economic sanctions. Due in China in a few days, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will discuss the situation with the Chinese, who may have more influence on North Korea. So far, there seems to be no inclination to take on North Korea. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowleysays there’s no interest in seeing the Korean peninsula explode. Barry Schweid, Washington.

CNN-North Korea warns it will meet war with ‘all-out war’


  • South Korean anti-submarine exercise prompts angry response
  • North “will react to confrontation with confrontation,” news agency says
  • North Korea calls South Korean leaders a “group of traitors”
  • Response comes amid high tensions, after Seoul blamed Pyongyang for sinking warship


I found these articles at CNN this evening, both in the highlights.

You see the photos in the first article? There are pictures of anti-North banners and rallies. Pretty shocking; we never stood up this strongly against the North so openly. I didn’t know those rallies were taking place in our country, but apparently the situation is getting extremely serious, worrying the US government and the UN, not to mention South Korea. I don’t know what to think.
