South Korea Vows Air Raid if North Korea Attacks

South Korea’s new defense minister said his country plans to respond with airstrikes if North Korea attacks the country again.

From CNN:

“We will definitely air raid North Korea,” Kim Kwan-jin said at his confirmation hearing when asked how the South would respond if struck again, according to the official Yonhap News Agency.

Kim was appointed defense minister last week amid growing tensions on the Korean peninsula following an exchange of gunfire between the two sides.

His comments reflect a potential shift in South Korea’s policy toward provocations from the North. Previously, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak warned of severe consequences if the North launched another attack, but declined to name specifics.
