South Korea – Should verify the sources linking Nkorean to the attack before any action

hilary_cliton(CodewitNews)The International Commmunity should be careful in getting involve in this case. we can see from the end of the  tunnel a light of war being masterminded again by the United States of America. The international community  should ask basic questions? for example How credible are the sources accusing North korea of being responsible of the attack. I mean; how are we sure the sources revealing that North korea is responsible is credible. You can see  political malpractice at play.  All of a sudden, we are hearing  Mrs. Cliton’s strong rhetorics against Nkorea and United States has already condemned  North Korea without verifying if the sources of the report are  credible. As usual , they have started calling the international community to do the same. Not this time.

To refresh your memory, Is it not the same United States  that lied to us that their intelligence revealed that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and convinced the International community to support them to go for war against Iraq. The world should bite the words coming from United States before chewing.  of course now we know from all credible sources that the pictures and images showed to the world on that reporting was a hoax and a sham. It was a deceptive and dubious investigation intended to  pursue American war agenda and invasion of  Iraq for her oil. It is sad that we have a lot of political journalists that are happy to see wars and disunity among nations and drive joy in causing political tensions among nations.

Please the international community should be careful this time. war is dangerous and must be the last resort if neccesary. Remember that the United States has not come out of the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and now they are indirectly gingering South korea for another war. The world should be careful!!!

South Korea should look for another alternatives than to go for war. Most importantly, they should re-evaluate and verify  again and again and find out if the sources linking North Korea to the attack is credible and verifiable. . Only when that is established without bias. They should  then find other ways to settle their misunderstanding.

It is a normal saying that  negotiation and dialogue is better than  confrontation. There is power in direct and indirect negotiation and dialogue as Mr. Barack Obama said during his presidential campaign.  We all know that United states of America is a warmonger. The world should avoid war.  War and Violence does not bring peace but death of civilians and destruction of infrastructure. We call on Interbational Community to institute a new indpendent team to investigate the accusation. Let us avoid war as far as  we can because it is destructive..

Clinton: World must act on SKorean ship sinking

South Korea – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday the world must respond to the sinking of a South Korean warship that has been blamed on North Korea.

“This was an unacceptable provocation by North Korea and the international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond,” Clinton told reporters after talks with South Korean leaders.

The ship sinking “requires a strong but measured response,” she said at a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan, though did not elaborate.

Clinton said the United States would be consulting with South Korea and members of the U.N. Security Council on what the appropriate action would be, but she declined to offer a timeline.

“We’re very confident in the South Korean leadership, and their decision about how and when to move forward is one that we respect and will support,” she said.

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have risen sharply since a team of international investigators last week concluded that a torpedo from a North Korean submarine tore apart the corvette Cheonan on March 26, killing 46 South Korean sailors. It was one of the South’s worst military disasters since the 1950-53 Korean War.

Clinton spent just a few hours in Seoul discussing possible international responses with South Korean leaders. North Korea denies it was responsible for the incident and has threatened to retaliate if action is taken against it.

Clinton touched down in the South Korean capital Wednesday after intense discussions on the deteriorating situation with Chinese officials in Beijing.

“I believe that the Chinese understand the seriousness of this issue and are willing to listen to the concerns expressed by both South Korea and the United States,” she said Wednesday. “We expect to be working with China as we move forward in fashioning a response.”

China said it was still weighing the evidence over the sinking.

Beijing regards the sinking as “extremely complicated” and has no firsthand information about the cause, Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun told reporters in the Chinese capital.

“China is carefully and prudently studying and examining the information from all sides,” he said.

South Korea’s Yu, asked about the possibility of China or Russia blocking action by the U.N. Security Council, said they “will take time, I’m sure, but they will not be able to deny the facts.”

Clinton called the investigation into the sinking “very thorough, highly professional” and “very convincing.” She said both the United States and South Korea had offered China “additional information and briefings about the underlying facts of that event.”

“We hope that China will take us up on our offer to really understand the details of what happened and the objectivity of the investigation that led to the conclusions,” she said.

As Clinton visited Seoul, the two Koreas traded new threats amid rapidly deteriorating relations.

The North’s military said it would block cross-border traffic heading to a joint industrial zone in North Korea if the South does not stop psychological warfare operations. It also vowed to blow up any loudspeakers South Korea sets up to broadcast propaganda northward.

South Korea, meanwhile, accused Pyongyang of taking “menacing” measures and vowed to “deal with these North Korean threats unwaveringly and sternly,” Unification Ministry spokesman Chun Hae-sung said.
