We have an example of a South Korean ship being attacked and sunk, killing almost 50 men. Last time I checked, South Korea was a formal ally of ours. When it first happened, we weren't exactly sure if it was an attack or an accident or a 50 year old mine or what... so maybe it was wise to let cooler heads prevail. But now, according to the news releases of that past couple days, it seems pretty clear that it was a deliberate act of murder committed by North Korea. And if killing almost 50 sailors isn't an act of war requiring a strong response, I don't know what is. But why is this matter a complete non-issue in the media, blogosphere, etc, etc? I'd say this is the international crisis that Biden promised Obama, but it's tough to call something a crisis when no one seems to care (except, I assume, the families of the deceased).
