This is the only time South Korea returned fire.If Best Korea can torpedo a South Korean frigate and kill dozens of sailors with no repercussions whatsoever, do you really think an artillery barrage that kills 2 more soldiers is going to send things over the edge? I doubt it.
the US has 25k troops there. it will be over in minutes. it's the guys that wear dresses and hide in caves we can't deal with so well.I have this feeling the Kim Jong Il is wanting to destroy South Korea before he dies, knowing that none of his sons or anyone else are keen on taking his job. A last hurrah kinda of thing.
