of course but that isn't the question. You left out the part about how you recently sunk a ship, shelled an island causing deaths of S Korean citizens. Would it not already be an act of war for N Korea to threaten to do it again, then move assets into place to accomplish the goal?
My question is when does a preemptive strike by S Korean and its allies amount to an act of war. If the other country already has done an act of war doesn't that put them in a state of war? And make any strike reasonable?
I happen to more lean towards admitting the best move probably to do nothing until we are forced to, but the nationalist in me would love to see a bomb dropped right on that ****ers head.
