The South Korean military continued to unleash its high voltage rhetoric against the North.
“Fellow soldiers, as chairman, I will completely crush the enemy with combined forces in coordination with the United States,” said General Han Min-koo.
According to McClatchy Newspapers, the younger generation in South Korea agreed with the military. They wanted their government to make the North pay for their transgressions.
“That attack (on Yeonpyeong) showed there is a fight between our two countries,” said one South Korean. “But we couldn’t fight back. We failed. At a certain point, if we’re being attacked, we have to hit back to defeat their will.”
