  • Tensions are continuing to escalate on the Korean Peninsula. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak is vowing retaliation against the DPRK if his country is provoked again. 
    The DPRK responded by saying that it has limited restraint over Seoul's military provocation and it will punish the south if it doesn't stop. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak addressed the nation on Monday, calling for solidarity against military provocation by the DPRK.

    He called for security readiness that would allow South Korean forces to respond when they come under attack. Lee stressed he is not afraid of war with Pyongyang.

    Lee Myung-bak, South Korean President, said, "The DPRK has misread our intentions and aspirations for peace. They have committed provocations against us without the slightest hesitation. We have now woken up to the realization that war can be prevented and peace assured, only when such provocations are met with a strong response."

    Lee has sharpened his language after the DPRK shelled of Yeonpyeong island last month, killing four South Koreans. Pyongyang has said the shelling was in retaliation for military exercises by Seoul.
    In response to South Korea's harsh words and frequent drills, the DPRK's official daily, Rodong Sinmun, said on Monday that the country has "limited" restraint over South Korea's military provocation. It added the DPRK will harshly punish Seoul for any further aggressive moves.

    The newspaper says peace on the Korean Peninsula is under serious threat as the US and South Korea have been staging repeated anti-DPRK drills.

    Since the DPRK's shelling of Yeonpyeong, South Korea has staged several military exercises. It is holding its latest maritime firing drill from Monday through Friday in waters off the country's west, south, and east coasts. But no drills are scheduled near the disputed western sea border with the DPRK.
