“We have been patient, I thought that for this patient bring peace to the land, but not so. Only a strong response to defend the peace, deter provocative. “December 23, a military uniform from the Korean South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to post only 750 meters from the Gangwon Baekdusan post, with Here’s some tough talk condolences to the officers and men. Yin Ping in the peninsula due to rapid deterioration of shelling the island a month, again and again to North Korea by Lee put relentless and frequent military transfers, re-establish his “iron fist” image. An unrelenting, no patient in South Korea, the outside world greatly surprised.
12 month of the Korean Peninsula, “South Korea toward the weak strong,” the situation entirely different. South Korea resumed taeyonpyong first live-fire exercises, and then restart the “Christmas tree propaganda war,” and then held in the near inter-Korean border, “the history of the largest joint air-ground exercises.” All of these fiery military action, are North Korea “does not merit a response” and alluded to. International experts on the “World News” correspondent pointed out that South Korea resorted to full pressure on North Korea in a momentum can be the end may find such a large campaign to brandish guns, in addition to their own gain psychological satisfaction, the fear is not too more benefits.
South Korean soldiers quickly burned himself a
11 23 January taeyonpyong shelling incident, Cheong Wa Dae and the South Korean Defense Ministry the same day is like a war, In response to domestic public opinion blamed for weak security, Lee Myung-bak government decided to use “not breathing” tough to restore the public.
including Defense Minister during the complete range of forces, including personnel changes, the South Korean military on 20 December Yin Ping Island waters for more than an hour of shooting drills, firing a total of more than 1600 shells. Since this exercise is on the island of 23 live-fire exercises of Yin Ping “Concluded”, so not much new content, and take into account North Korea’s counter-measures may exercise deliberately avoid sensitive waters. During exercise, Yin Ping Island North Korea deployed in the vicinity such as the west coast of the MLRS artillery opened the door, but a bomb is not made. This makes South Korean military morale.
21 days, there are four days away from Christmas, South Korea in light of the “western front” the most love in front of Christmas tree on the type of prostitutes peak lighthouse. The lighting ceremony with religious overtones, marking the restart of North Korea Korea, “psychological warfare.” 23, known as “the largest in the history” of the joint air-ground firing exercise in Seoul, 50 kilometers north of Gyeonggi Pocheon City. South Korea invested a total of 800 officers and men, the use of F-15K and KF-16 fighter aircraft, AH-1S attack helicopters, K-9 self-propelled artillery and other 105 kinds of fire equipment.
Interestingly, South Korea, a second show of force, did not cause substantive response to North Korea, North Korea consistently put on a “gentleman than hands” gesture, which inevitably make the tough South Korea There is a “air punching” embarrassment.
for 20 South Korean troops fired at taeyonpyong exercise, the High Command of the Korean People’s Army press release said, for such a “despicable military provocation” and “not worthy of them corresponds to each.” 23, the Korean People’s Armed Forces Minister Jin Yingchun said, “Our revolutionary armed being well prepared, can be made at any time to start nuclear deterrence based on the Korean-style jihad.”
Taking the hard and soft to play against South Korea does not seem to stop hand posture. However, frequently participated in the exercise of South Korean soldiers are a little barely. South Korea, “Asian Daily” reported on 23 that South Korea has armed soldiers feel very tired, and some people even give birth to the idea of ??escape from military service. In addition, the frequent dispatch and emergency standby equipment, Jun Han makes not get normal rest and maintenance, and the resulting corresponding costs “can not be overlooked.” The newspaper quoted the South Korean Defense Ministry official as saying, “equipped with missiles, fighter jets in the case, sent out a lot more often than usual. All kinds of naval combat power but also because in an emergency standby, resulting in a substantial increase in fuel costs.” Compared with South Korea than North Korea has repeatedly switch by the door of the coast artillery positions and trenches with Korean Central News Agency’s “verbal threat”, etc., military spending will “minimize.”
be “populist” kidnapped government
Korea every military mobilization, regard the people’s heart in his throat for fear of such ” walking a fine line, “repeat the act, and it really sudden event. Some analysts pointed out that Korea has nothing to fear such tough measures against North Korea to upgrade behind with complex motives.
South Korean government’s recent series of moves against the DPRK, is largely constrained by domestic public opinion. Since March this year, “security” incident, the DPRK Korea’s conservative mood increased significantly. Just over six months, took place taeyonpyong shelling, making the South Korean people’s national sentiment has been mobilized at once. According to South Korean media reports, beginning December 1, recruitment in the new year, South Korean young men join the army of visitors grew 37%. All this is undoubtedly related to the situation on the peninsula this year.
since been approved in the “Tian An” event of the direction of “soft” term of more than half of the Lee Myung-bak government, support for all the way down, leading to some extent, the ruling Grand National Party, respectively, in June and local elections held in July and a comprehensive defeat in local elections, by-election. The end of November taeyonpyong shelling, Lee Myung-bak government again pushed to the people of the opposite. Presidential security for poor, blame the slow response voices, resulting in the successful holding of November 20 summit of the Group of Seoul, South Korea, the positive impact of the current government suddenly vanish. In order to secure political base, the original policy toward the DPRK on the conservative Lee Myung-bak government, had to strengthen the conservative position, in order to get domestic public support, which fall into a vicious cycle difficult to break.
“Korea is a nation vulnerable to extremes. As in previous years with the fingers cut way to express Japan’s declaration of sovereignty over Dokdo dissatisfaction, as well as against U.S. beef imports, thousands of people held a candlelight demonstrations, these are the concrete expression of South Korea’s national character so the character of the decision of the Lee Myung-bak government must be subject to strong public opinion, and even do more than people expect. “Shanghai International Studies expert on the Korean Peninsula welcome Li on the “News of the World,” told reporters.
addition to domestic factors, the United States secretly supported also put pressure on the DPRK to South Korea’s reckless important driving force. Based on strategic considerations to return to Asia, the United States have been in South Korea military exercises and inspiring to cheer, and even himself from time to time blending in, so feel the United States to defend South Korea South Korea’s “determination.” This is even more important in Korea to the United States in military psychological dependence, that as long as the United States, North Korea would not “infringe” themselves.
South Korea, “Chosun Ilbo,” an article published recently, the South Korea’s current policy toward the DPRK called “populism.” The article pointed out that “populism,” the biggest problem is that the vast majority of the views of people are emotional, so the temporary public opinion in the long run, may not be entirely in line with national interests. For South Korea’s policy toward the DPRK is also true. It is this “populism” and let South Korea lost its reason, a sharp deterioration in relations with North Korea, the peninsula go step by step the brink of war.
“gambler” mentality landed himself in an unfavorable position
rating agency in Hong Kong, recently published commentary that South Korean island in the shelling Yin Ping tasted the “sweetness “, finds North Korea has been its” willingness to fight “the courage to scare and lost the game and its other psychological capital, and therefore would like to come up with” courage to recover should be left tottering foe “spirit, the potential psychological pressure to Korean one. South Korea to do so is a “gambler” mentality, a little to the immediate political interests, willing to risk confrontation may lead to more serious consequences of risk in the long run, or the expense of their own.
analysts have pointed out, now North Korea and South Korea did not make any counter-attack after a series of exercises, but also made many significant concessions on the issue, for example, to allow the UN inspectors to return to North Korea; agreed to set up a U.S. Korean tripartite military commission, and set up a hotline between the DPRK and the ROK military. South Korea should seize this opportunity will undoubtedly promote the development of the situation towards peace. Conversely, if the situation in South Korea miscarriage of justice, continues to stimulate the North Korean military, it will not only miss the opportunity, but the situation is likely to push the irreversible point.
in Yingli that South Korea North Korea insisted on tough, in fact, is not conducive to unity and national reconciliation in the peninsula. Once wanted to abolish the Unification Ministry of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, said mid-two clear, “the pace of getting close to the uniform.” See, also expect a unified Korea in the days of early arrival. However, the question of reunification on the peninsula, Lee Myung-bak government has made a pragmatic error.
“Lee Myung-bak took office’s ‘nuclear-free, open, 3000′ policy toward the DPRK, in itself made the wrong direction. And then later proposed to charge the so-called ‘flat tax’, in fact only economic loss calculations, and no settling of political accounts, and popular accounts. peninsula reunification must be based on independence, peace and reciprocal basis, it is impossible to achieve. “
also Some analysts pointed out that South Korea’s own foreign policy interests can not be completely in the hands of the United States. Lee Myung-bak government should understand that the United States do not want to open up a new battlefield, and no longer interested in war, the White House want to just “war of words” and “psychological warfare.” If North Korea South Korea said the United States blindly rely on hard, and ultimately their own bad luck or South Korea, the United States will not be any damage. So, South Korea on North Korea diplomacy, vision can not be too narrow, must consider, to China and Russia on the issue on the Korean Peninsula’s role to give full attention, it was just to give myself room to stretch.
