South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported on the 8th that the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff decided to expand the scale of the Marine Corps, and in the development of specific plans. Currently, the Marine Corps staff size of 2.7 million, an increase of troops will be deployed to the most paekyong, Qingdao, Yin Ping Island and the western waters of large islands, some will be incorporated into the pre-established in April this year the waters of the Northwest Command. South Korean military report quoted the words of the responsible person, to expand the Marine Corps forces to guard against large-scale means that the original landing into the main concept of defense in the event of a conflict can effectively counter the attack philosophy.
In fact, since November last year, Yin Ping Island shelling incident, the situation in North and South Korea have been tense, West South Korean military plans to increase military news emerging. South Korea’s Defense Ministry last December 29 to submit to the President Lee Myung-bak proposed in the plan of the New Year, will present a substantial military command structure reform, the current headquarters of the Armed Forces Command, Armed Forces adapted, and new joint military commander responsible for the armed forces command.

Comments that provoked the war in Korea caused new tensions between the two Koreas, the formation of damaging the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue. South Korea last year to pursue confrontation, so that inter-Korean relations in the most deteriorated state of crisis, South Korean authorities must accept the lesson. Intensification of tension and conflict is absolutely not solve the problem, South Korean authorities must stop provocative acts in good faith as soon as possible agree to dialogue and consultation.
about South Korea’s recent military action, Pyongyang condemned the general public. Not long ago, a Korean car mechanic in and chat with reporters when he said, the DPRK does not want war, but not afraid of war, if Korea really dare force against the DPRK, I will put down the tongs, take up guns on the front.
the Korean Peninsula, the United States will undoubtedly play an important role. Since last year, the U.S. military activities in the relevant area frequently, lead to the concept of superstition force fermentation. In January, U.S. military leaders have claimed that, if North Korea in the existing road, about five years time in the United States will form a “direct threat.” U.S. military for the Korean military irresponsible exaggerated, South Korea’s military would obviously adjust a certain impact.
