North/South Korea standoff

Korea mapSouth Korea’s president says his country will take “resolute countermeasures” against neighboring North Korea for what an international investigation has found to be overwhelming evidence that a South Korean warship was sunk two months ago by a torpedo made in North Korea fired by a North Korean submarine.  International relations Professor William Keylor, author of “A World of Nations: The International Order Since 1945,” says now is the time for the international community to make sure nothing rash happens next.

“Let’s hope cooler heads prevail in Seoul before we hear the cry ‘Remember the Cheonan!’ and witness the outbreak of another Korean War sixty years after the last one.”
