South Korea warns North of 'strong response'

The South Korean president on Monday warned North Korea that any provocative moves will be met with "a strong response" as the United States deployed stealth fighter jets in the tense region as part of joint military exercises.

"If there is any provocation against South Korea and its people, there should be a strong response in initial combat without any political considerations," President Park Geun-hye said at a meeting with senior defense and security officials, according to her office.

    Although I doubt if the North has the tech to carry out their threats against US, any localized fracas could spiral into a nightmare.
