    Sorry but China is NEVER going to let the U.S. crawl up next to their border, so they will not allow an attack by the U.S. to happen.

    Who said it would be the U.S.? At any rate, the Chinese dislike Kim Jong Ill as much as the rest of the world.

    China may dislike him, but they prefer him at their borders and not any other country.

    Nobody else will be on their border. The North will no longer exist. Korea will be one country again.

    We don't need to crawl up to their borders. This is the 21st century, remember.

    They do not want South Korea controlling the Peninsula, which is what effectively will happen. After a ****load of civilian casualties of course.

    Again, this is a scenario, that South Korea will not do, nor will the U.s. or any other country. North Korea will not be attacked or toppled over this, bank on it.

    This may be the 21st century, but the mindset is they will not allow another country to be at their borders.

    Borders don't mean much in this day and age. The great wall of china is nothing but a tourist trap, now.

    Could you imagine if this had happened to the U.S, Great Britain etc.? The North threatening all out war if the South retaliates and then the South doing nothing will inevitably lead to more threats and blackmail by force.

    I'm by no means a warmonger, and understand the consequences if war were to break out in Korea. I just don't know how a country can let the death of 46 servicemen occur without repercussions.

    Is there any word as to whether there is a national outcry, or call to arms over this?

    Seoul would be leveled in a few hours if the Rep. of Korea tried ANY military option against the DPRK...

    What are you talking about? It is the South that can't match the military strength of the DPRK, at least in the short term. Seoul would be leveled and the DPRK would immediately make inroads into the south right through the tripwire U.S. force. Anyone who things the South would win in the short term is delusional. In the long term, sans PRC engagement, the South would win because the DPRK wouldn't be able to provision its large army for an extended conflict in the way the ROK could, but large parts of the northern ROK would be wasted...
