North Korea Seems Determined To Go To War

The Yonhap News Agency, South Korea’s official news agency, has just reported more missiles being fired by North Korea.

A recent report on its web site says:

“N. Korea fires short-range missile off east coast: source

SEOUL, May 29 (Yonhap) — North Korea launched an additional short-range missile from its east coast, an official at the government official said Friday.

North Korea appears to have launched a missile into the East Sea at around 6:12 p.m., according to the official.

The North has been firing a series of missiles since Monday, when it said it successfully conducted a second nuclear test.”

These latest test would seem to further show North Korea’s determination to snub its nose at the World and further antagonise South Korea. It is also sure to push the rest of the World towards tougher sanctions through the U.N. Security Council.

With North Korea’s threat to respond to any action against its shipping or ships enroute to its ports with military action and its continuing aggression it seems determined to force a military conflict with South Korea.
