Read Escape From Camp 14 a few weeks ago. As far as I’m

It is an extremely grave military action and politically motivated provocation to fire live bullets and shells at the flag of a sovereign state without a declaration of war, the statement said.
As opposed to the capture of the Pueblo and killing of one of its crew, or the murder of Capt. Boniface & Lt. Barrett over a DMZ tree, or the sinking of the Cheonan resulting in the death of 46, or the shelling of Yeonpyeong, causing 4 deaths.
The list is probably a whole lot longer.
