Global Network reporter reported, as the day the ship sank because the investigation continued to deepen, more and more worried that South Korea and North Korea may be related. If proof of this is true, how to deal with South Korea has become the focus. South Korea, “Central Daily” April 22 published an article listed in the confirmation Cheonan South Korea by North Korea is sunk, the military option on the six military response.
The article said that the first option does not use military force of about 3 species.
first start against the DPRK psychological warfare once again. The program is set up again in front of Roh Moo-hyun administration removed North Korea propaganda on the screen, began to broadcast programs on the DPRK through the loudspeakers. June 2004, North and South Korea in the Yellow Sea in order to prevent armed conflicts, inter-Korean naval communications network communicate with each other through international agreement on merchant shipping, South Korea removed the screen so the DPRK propaganda, psychological warfare stopped. Some analysts believe that a large screen set in front of troops to North Korea caused a strong psychological impact. Large screen broadcast TV series, etc., to show the North Korean military reality in Korea.
followed by the lifting of the Korean merchant in Jeju Strait, the right of innocent passage in Hong Kong program. South Korea starting in 2005, allowing North Korean merchant ships through the Jeju Strait, the narrow route. However, if confirmed indeed the day the ship sank as North Korea, then South Korea will be no reason to allow this right to continue.
In addition, South Korea also demanded that North Korea through the United Nations for an apology. The event is in the case of the Korean truce provocative behavior, South Korea through the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission urged the DPRK to conduct a formal apology. Although North Korea is unlikely to accept, but it necessary to demand an apology. This can also be seen as to guide the UN Security Council to condemn and sanction of the first measures.
article also lists three kinds of use of military force options.
first Korean warships in violation of the NLL (NLL) at its decisive defeat. North Korea will also likely attempt to go beyond the NLL after the armistice system and the NLL invalidated. Especially before the annual Crab season (May to July), the DPRK side to the expulsion of illegal Chinese fishing vessels operating as an excuse at any time violated NLL. But the South Koreans to take strong countermeasures responsible for violations of the NLL is satisfied with the Korean warships is still a question.
second to destroy North Korean submarine (ship) program. This is the other party is in determining the torpedo submarine (ship) in the case of the method used. In such circumstances, the Korean military position in the discipline, according to the principle of proportionality using sophisticated remote-induced damage to the DPRK’s weapons accurately 1 2 submarine (ship). But such discipline requires the consent of the Korea-US joint military commander’s consent and assistance.
Finally, the method of attacking North Korean submarine base. This is more than destruction of the Korean submarine (ship) is more severe disciplinary approach. Because this is the day the ship sank extent than more punishment, it may lead to wider war. It may also lead to retaliation strength too much controversy.
