    In March, the sinking of a South Korean warship by North Korea is something that must be talked over again.
    After the military armistice agreement in 1953 between the North and South Korea, there have been over 2,000 counts attacks in total, including the major ones: the 1968 Presidential Palace attack, the 1988 explosion of Korean Air flight, the explosion in Myanmar during South Korean President's visit, 2 nuclear missile trials, couple battles with the Navy in the west sea, and a torpedo attack against the South Korean warship "Cheonan" earlier this year.
    After this attack, the North accused the US and South Korea for plotting a major scheme against the North and threatened to turn Seoul into a "Sea of Fire".
    Instability in the Korean peninsula, many raised questions against the shifting of wartime operation control from US to ROK, which was to take place in April of 2012. However, during the G20 Conference, the United States and South Korean leaders decided to postpone the shifting of control to December 2015. It was definitely a good decision made by both nations.

    Sometimes it is best to just ignore them..

    N Korea is a non-player on the world stage. They are an economic disaster and their military is an empty shell. Their biggest threat right now is not S Korea but their own people. The only way Kim stays in power is to convince his people that the west is out to get them.

    Maintain strict economic sanctions, get information into the people so that they know what is going on. Former allies Russia and China want nothing to do with N Korea. Let them put political pressure on N Korea to clean up its act.

    Is not that why that North Korea has nuclear weapons the Americans do not want to interfere. In contrast to the case of Iraq, who originally had no weapons of mass destruction.
