|Nobody wants to talk about it?
I am not sure who ordered the attack, either from the old ugly Kim or the young fat Kim. They are betting that there will be no strong response from either ROK or the US, and they are pretty much right on this one. This is a blatant show of force, posture of intimidation, of what they are capable of.
Sadly, appeasement seems more popular than strong action. Like Winston Churchil had said, the free world choose dishonor over war, and will get war anyway.
