S.Korea cuts trade, sea lanes with North

South Korea Monday halted trade with North Korea as part of a package of reprisals for the sinking of one of its warships, drawing strong US support but threats of attack from the communist state.

President Lee Myung-Bak also banned the North's merchant ships from South Korean waters and said Seoul would refer the March 26 attack -- which killed 46 sailors -- to the United Nations Security Council for punishment.

In a nationally televised address, a sombre-looking Lee vowed an immediate military response to any future aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this move is infinitely more symbolic than real, in terms of the actual amount of trade which really goes on between the two Koreas, it unfortunately sets the stage for some kind of (perhaps second) false flag action to really kick the region into a state of war.
