Wait a minute here....Joint exercises as a show of strength is a "huge provocation"? What was sinking a ship killing 46? Business as normal?
War on the Korean peninsula is really hinging on one SAM site operator acting without permission and shooting down a stray aircraft, 1 naval skirmish etc. This could get ugly quick.
My jaw is hitting the desk here....NK sinks a ship, and all we should do is what? Send a letter? Can we type it in bold type so that Il knows we are really, really serious this time?
