The top U.S. military officer in the Asia Pacific region said Tuesday there is a growing sense in South Korea that “it would almost impossible for the South Koreans not to respond in some fashion” if North Korea were to sink one of their ships or shell an island, as the communist state did in 2010.
The chief of U.S. Pacific Command warned North Korea on Thursday not to launch a long-range missile this month in violation of international law, saying it would be destabilizing for the region.
"We encourage the leadership in North Korea to consider what they're doing here and the implications on the overall security environment on the Korean Peninsula as well as in Asia," said Navy Adm. Samuel Locklear III.
"To the degree that they will be more successful than they were last time in such a short period of time I can't tell you how they assess that," he said. "Should they choose to go ahead with it, we'll just have to see how it goes."
