  •  30 deaths is a minor border skirmish (0+ / 0-)

    not anywhere near analogous to a hot war or a shelling of seoul, which would be catastrophic.

    •  only because S.K. didn't respond. (0+ / 0-)

      I assume it wouldn't have spilled all the way over, either--

      but sinking a ship isn't exactly a tiny military action, either.  My only point is that these things CAN escalate.

      India/Pakistan hasn't spilled over either--but I wouldn't say it could never happen.

      •  one ship *is* a tiny action (0+ / 0-)

        compared to actual large scale assaults. the point is that NK has chosen not to escalate in deed the way they have in word. we would do well to distinguish carefully between the two.
