    The Chinese military is holding six concurrent drills in various coastal regions this week, amid continued high tensions with the U.S. and its neighbors over territorial disputes in the contested South China Sea. On Sunday, the Guangdong bureau of China's Maritime Safety Administration announced a new round of drills off the country's southern coast that will run from Monday to Saturday, The South China Morning Post reported. The administration's bureau on the southern island of Hainan had already said Saturday that it would conduct a similar drill off its South China Sea coast at the same time. Chinese forces will...
  • No limit to S.Korea's retaliation, defence minister warns

    South Korea will swiftly and strongly respond with force until North Korea surrenders if the communist state launches another assault, the South's new defence minister said Saturday. Kim Kwan-Jin issued the warning during his inauguration speech after President Lee Myung-Bak officially appointed the retired four-star general as the new defence chief following a parliamentary confirmation hearing Friday. Kim Kwan-Jin replaced Kim Tae-Young, who came under fire over the military's allegedly feeble response to North Korea's deadly shelling of South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island near the tense Yellow Sea border on November 23. "If North Korea launches another military attack on our...

    Cheonan the Introduction to Kim's Second Act By Sohn Kwang Joo, Chief Editor [2010-06-03] What does it all mean? Why was South Korea attacked by North Korea? Some say that the Cheonan incident was retaliation for the Daecheong naval battle of November last year, while others say it was related to the succession. But the underlying reason is different. South Korea and the international community have not yet figured out recent changes to Kim Jong Il’s survival tactics. That is, there have been changes to Kim Jong Il’s international and domestic strategy for survival with which his foes have yet...

    Salvage crews have raised the stern or rear portion of a South Korean Navy ship that mysteriously sunk in the Yellow Sea on March 26th. The bodies of 36 crew members were also recovered. Initial reports suggested a North Korean torpedo may have been responsible. But just as tensions between the two rivals were escalating, the cause of the incident became murkier. What is clear is some sort of explosion caused the Cheonan to split in two and then sink. Many of the crew members were rescued by South Korean ships that rushed to the scene, but at least 44...

    U.S. 'Won't Seek Talks with N.Korea Until Shipwreck Is Explained' The U.S. will start discussions on the resumption of six-party nuclear talks with North Korea once it is known what caused the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan to sink in the West Sea on March 26, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday. Kurt Campbell, the U.S. assistant secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, made the remarks when he met reporters after a seminar hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. When asked about the resumption of the six-party talks, he said, "Let's find...

    Summer is rapidly approaching...and for many Americans, that means beach season. But there is more to the beach season than sun, sand and fun. There is also danger and that danger can take many forms: melanoma, sharks, unsightly flab. Now, thanks to the good folks at Charmin, a new survey shines a much needed light on yet another growing problem plaguing the beaches of this great land, though it is rarely discussed...perhaps because the implications are too traumatic. According to the Charmin Relief Project's "Don't Pee in the Sea" survey, two-thirds of beachgoers(62%) admit they urinate in the same waters...

Korea SEOUL, June 4 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's propaganda Web site on Monday lashed out at Japan's move to deploy Aegis destroyers in international waters between South Korea and China. The Uriminzokkiri associated Japan's plan with what it claimed was South Korean President Lee Myung-bak's "toadyism" to the United States and Japan, accusing Lee of seeking to collude with Japan in military affairs. The criticism came days after Japan's Kyodo news agency reported Tokyo plans to deploy the destroyers to waters near the Yellow Sea to improve...

    South Korea and the United States have decided not to hold a joint naval drill, which was expected to take place in the Yellow Sea late this month, in consideration of geopolitical conditions ahead of an upcoming Seoul G-20 economic summit, defense sources said Sunday. "For the time being, there will be no joint aircraft carrier strike group exercise that South Korea and the U.S. considered holding late this month," a high-level government source said, requesting anonymity. "A training involving a U.S. aircraft carrier will not be held within this year." The allies initially planned to hold the exercise joined...

George Washington, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, will not take part in the second of a series of the combined military drills between South Korea and the United States following the Cheonan sinking, the UN Command said yesterday. An initial plan to mobilize the 97,000-ton aircraft career in the drill, scheduled to be held in the Yellow Sea early next month, drew strong protest from China, leading some to worry about a physical confrontation between the world’s superpowers. “The George Washington is not scheduled to participate in this ASW...

    South Korea is planning to hold an anti-submarine exercise next month in the Yellow Sea following a joint naval drill with the United States expected to be staged later this month in the East Sea, a military source said Friday. The planned exercise is a display of military force intended to deter future provocation by North Korea in the wake of the North's deadly sinking of a South Korean warship in March, the source said. No date has been fixed for the exercise that will take place in the Yellow Sea, where a North Korean torpedo sank the Cheonan warship,...

    South Korea and the United States will push ahead with a joint naval exercise to warn North Korea against making attacks on the South, officials in Seoul and Washington said. But a defense ministry official told the JoongAng Ilbo that the two countries have arrived at a compromise to avoid angering China, which objected to the exercise being held in the Yellow Sea near its own territorial waters. “We will hold drills in both the Yellow Sea and the East Sea,” the official said. In addition, the U.S.S. George Washington, a U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, will participate in the exercise...
