U.S. military told to get ready in Korea standoff. Obama orders commanders to prepare 'to deter future aggression'

My belief is that North Korea will not elevate this situation to all out war, but their leader, Kim Jong Il, has not been the most rational leader on the planet. It is good to see the administration supporting our commitment to the South Koreans. Kim Jong Il is a scary individual.

The White House said Monday that President Barack Obama "fully supports" the South Korean president and his response to the torpedo attack by North Korea that sank a South Korean naval ship.

In a statement, the White House said Seoul can continue to count on the full backing of the United States and said U.S. military commanders had been told to work with their South Korean counterparts "to ensure readiness and to deter future aggression".
