The U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was visiting Seoul Wednesday, to show solidarity after North Korea’s attack on Yeonpyeong Island. Admiral Mike Mullen said he was frustrated with China’s unwillingess to rein in Pyongyang.
Regarding North Koriea, Admiral Mullen said, “I do not believe we should continue to reward that behavior with bargaining or new incentives. China has unique influence. Therefore they bear unique responsibility.”
Protesters in South Korea shot mock guns at pictures of Kim Jong-il. Others protested war and warned against partnering with the U.S. because it riles up North Korea.
