- My first post on the Yŏnpyŏng-do attack, while it was still going on
- The Kushibo Plan™: The appropriate military response to what is clearly a problem that won't go away on its own
- Victor Cha talks about the why's and what's about the Yŏnpyŏng-do attack (includes Newshour video)
- Andrei Lankov discusses the North Korea problem
- The North Koreans may have given an indication they were up to something in an editorial saying North Korea's military must strike a blow against imperialism in order to bolster the Songun (military first) policy.
- Jimmy Carter says North Korea is acting out to get Washington to sit down with them
- The White House condemns North Korea and stands behind its ally; meanwhile, some folks talking with some Western reporters are a bit blasé about what happened. (Kushibo suggests this is a combination of Threat Fatigue™ and a defensive denial of the severity of how severely North Korea has ratcheted things up)
- Have North Korean apologists found the deniability they will rally around in order to pin the attack on South Korea?
- Is China inept and ineffectual when it comes to keeping its dog on a leash?
- Civilian deaths belatedly reported (includes CNN video). The same thing in Korean
- A diagram of the attacks courtesy of the Donga Ilbo
- South Korea is concerned about the economic fallout of the attack
- Miscellaneous late-breaking links related to the Yŏnpyŏngdo attack
The above posts contain links to many other articles and sites. The bloggers and commenters at Marmot's Hole and ROK Drop have both been great for providing information and insight. Finally, Coming Anarchy has a post I did not link to that mulls over an older idea of a preemptive strike on North Korea (not that that's what I'm endorsing).
