    I think the South Koreans would rather not see Seoul blown up, and as it was a South Korean ship that was sunk, I think they should be the ones to determine what is done in response

    You mean how with the left in control, we still have troops in and dying in Iraq, and have expanded our operations in Afghanistan? I know I have been paying attention anyway...
