MGW 2010 South Korea Affirmative Alexa/ Quamir possibility of war: Moving from "passive defense to proactive deterrence" is a significant shift for a country that seems to get pushed around by North Korea every year . Just this month South Korea fired warning shots when North Korean ships ventured across the border. On the other hand, if Kim Jong-il were to refrain from lighting the powderkeg for a year or so, he'd be getting off easy. The rest of Lee's retaliation involves a ban on sand and fish imports .

Pyongyang characterized the North’s 2006 test and its accumulation of weaponized plutonium as a fundamental strategic turning point that diminished the importance the DPRK had previously attached to diplomatic relations with the United States.28 According to senior North Korean
