Seoul warns: 'Dear price' if North Korea attacks again

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak warned Monday that North Korea will face severe consequences if it launches another military attack across its southern border.

"If the North commits any additional provocations against the South, we will make sure that it pays a dear price without fail," he said in a nationally televised address.

"We are aware of the historic lesson that a disgraceful peace achieved through intimidation only brings about greater harm in the end."

    People of the United States,
    I realize it's easy to be an arm chair general when thousands of lives are at stake.But in the mid to long term to be blunt, if the NK SOB's really do develope a long range ICBM capacity with multiple nuclear warheads,well I am sorry folks, thats a real unacceptable situation for me.The same goes for the Iranians and the Pakistanis.We really need a Godfather Church Baptisim scence moment for all these countries to take care of the unfinished family business.The problem is that the U.S. wants to win the hearts and minds of people around the world (where have we heard that before,SouthVietnam) its not happening people.The Roman Empire lasted as long as it did because they were brutal and the world feared it.Here a question for you to ponder.Is the world afraid of Russia and China?Your damn right it is! Has Russia or China done anything of a real humanitarian nature for the rest of the world in the last 60 years except export Revolution around the world causing millions of deaths.
    I say,this Government better wake up to the reality of what we are dealing with.By not stopping Wikileaks we have a diplomatic nightmare on our hands and we really look evil around the world.The Russians,Chinese,North Koreans and Iran are laughing there asses off at us.The United States has saved the world at least 3 times in the last century,If we let our enemies overrun us as they are currently doing ,our chilldren will live in fear and never experience real freedom.
