South Korea Vows Military Reply if North Provokes It

SEOUL — President Park Geun-hye’s order to her generals are the latest turn in a war of words that is testing the resolve of both North and South Korea.


Such are the unique circumstances under which President Lee has tried to marshal a firm and unified response to the North’s latest provocation. So far he has done an excellent job, conveying just the right mixture of resolve and restraint. Where American presidents tend to personalize conflict with foreign powers, Mr. Lee refrained from explicitly blaming Kim Jong-il for the sinking; this may make it a little easier for the dictator to issue an apology without losing face.

Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s capture captivated the Arab world, but images of his bloody corpse were a reminder of the Arab Spring’s many still-unresolved conflicts.
