North Korea is taking its belligerency to a new height today, as it has deployed surface-to-air missiles on its southern border with South Korea. This raises concern that the North could attack or otherwise become more belligerent in the very near future.
The Russian-made missiles have been deployed since the North's artillery shelling of the South this past Tuesday.
As the hostilities between the South and North seem to mount, the United States is carrying out war games with the South while China is calling for emergency talks. Yet the North seems to refuse to listen to reason.
The reason why North Korea is acting so belligerently is uncertain. Some analysts believe it is to attract attention, others believe it is to test the United States, while more believe it is simply to start a war with the South.
