China, company seek answers to rash of suicides

By Jaime FlorCruz, CNN Beijing Bureau Chief
May 28, 2010 3:03 a.m. EDT

(CNN) -- Liang Chao was a typical farmer's son who migrated to the city seeking a better life. He seemed to have found it in Shenzhen, a booming city in southern China, where he worked at Foxconn, a company better known for producing components for Apple, Dell, Hewlett-Packard and other companies.

But the 21-year-old worker was found dead on May 14 after falling from the seventh floor of a factory dormitory, according to local police.

Liang's death was the ninth in a spate of similar incidents in which Foxconn employees have fallen to their deaths from buildings. Shenzhen police are treating the cases as suicides.

Liu Kun, a spokesman for the Taiwanese-owned Foxconn, said: "According to the police, most of the nine employees were suffering from personal problems related to emotions or health."

A few days after Liang's death, another Foxconn employee died after falling from a building at the Shenzhen factory complex. In all, state-run media reports there have been 10 deaths and two failed suicide attempts over the past five months.

Explainer: Why are the two Koreas so hostile?


By Andrew Salmon, for CNN
May 28, 2010 2:24 a.m. EDT

Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- With fingers pointing to North Korea for the March 26 sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan and the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War falling on June 25, the flashpoint peninsula is in the global spotlight once more. Here is a look at the questions looming over the two Koreas.

Is a second Korean War imminent?

Prosperous South Korea simply has too much to lose from war, so military retaliation looks unlikely. Also, most experts believe that an all-out war with South Korea and its U.S. ally would spell the end of Kim Jong-il's government in Pyongyang, so do not expect North Korea to let it escalate that far.

China's premier meets with South Korean leader as tension grows

Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Friday that while his country will not defend whoever is responsible for the sinking of a South Korean warship in March, it is not ready to accept South Korea's investigations that blame North Korea for the incident, officials said.

Wen, China's second-ranking official, refrained from using strong language against North Korea during Friday's bilateral summit in Seoul, adding that his government has not decided whether to accept a South Korean investigation's findings that blame North Korea for the so-called Cheonan incident last March, South Korean officials said.

Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea reacted to a South Korean anti-submarine exercise early Thursday by saying it would meet "confrontation with confrontation" and war with "all-out war," according to North Korean state-run media.

"Now that the puppet group challenged the DPRK [North Korea] formally and blatantly, the DPRK will react to confrontation with confrontation, and to a war with an all-out war," according the KCNA news agency.

The nightmare scenario.....Dealing with North Korea

Time for North Korea’s friends and foes to start preparing for the worst

May 27th 2010 | From The Economist print edition

 ID the warped Machiavellians of Pyongyang miscalculate when they launched the torpedo that blew apart a South Korean warship two months ago? Proof of one of the worst breaches of the armistice that ended the Korean war 57 years ago has roiled waters far beyond the Korean peninsula. Escalating tensions have even helped rattle global financial markets. Thus far, North Korea’s reckless belligerence has mostly been met with an impressive show of resolve by South Korea, Japan and America. But North Korea could yet raise the stakes again. Time for all of North Korea’s neighbours to start thinking of how they might together deal with some of the unthinkables they have hitherto tried hard to ignore .

South Korea has responded vigorously to the results of an international investigation that proved North Korea sank the Cheonan, killing 46 sailors. It has slapped on trade sanctions, closed its waters to North Korean ships and resumed a long abandoned propaganda blitz across the border. The measures, designed to squeeze the regime of Kim Jong Il without giving it an excuse to retaliate, demonstrate a welcome coolness and steeliness in South Korea’s president, Lee Myung-bak. Shrewdly, he has mostly let the facts themselves call for censure of the Kim regime by the United Nations Security Council. He has the full support of President Barack Obama, who has stood America’s military might behind South Korea.

But Mr Kim is no pushover. He has matched South Korea’s moves with his own. And there is still a risk that he will follow up with more provocations. This would test South Korea’s nerve, not least if there are more financial tremors that jeopardise the country’s economic stability. Mr Lee needs to maintain the calm determination he has shown so far. When dealing with extortionists like those in North Korea, it is better in the long run to show strength not weakness.

It is China that has come out of the affair looking pusillanimous. Pressed by Hillary Clinton, America’s secretary of state, to chastise North Korea, in public Chinese officials avoided even mentioning the attack on the Cheonan and merely called for restraint on all sides . They presumably fear jeopardising the stability of their renegade ally. But that is not just feeble, it is silly. Letting Mr Kim get away with this outrage will only tempt him to try more.

 Face-off.............................North and South Korea

The suspension of inter-Korean trade leaves the North even more dependent on China

May 26th 2010 | From The Economist online

ONE of the odd features of the dispute between North and South Korea since the torpedoing of the Cheonan by North Korea in March, is that the non-military responses available to the South and its allies are rather puny. Only a few hawkish South Koreans think a military response is desirable. Hillary Clinton, America's secretary of state, said that “the international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond” when she arrived in Seoul at the end of her Asian tour. For the international community, read China, which is reluctant to censure Kim Jong Il. The North's shortfall in everything from food to energy has been met by a mixture of trade with its southern neighbour and presents from China. The suspension of inter-Korean trade now leaves the poor North more dependent than ever on Beijing.

The World from Berlin.....'North Korea Seems To Have a Sort of Death Wish'


This week, international investigators determined that a North Korean torpedo was responsible for the sinking of a South Korean warship in March that resulted in the deaths of 46 sailors. German commentators say China, as Pyongyang's sole protector, holds the keys to resolving the conflict.

On Thursday, an international team investigating the sinking of a South Korean military patrol boat on March 26 announced the results of their work: They claim that the Cheonan corvette, a 1,200-ton gunboat, had been sunk by a torpedo fired by a North Korean submarine. The investigators had found part of the torpedo on the sea floor, which had lettering that indicated it came from North Korea. The sinking occurred near the highly sensitive maritime border between the two states and resulted in the deaths of 46 sailors.


Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, the two nations have had a ceasefire agreement in place, and, in 1991, both signed a nonaggression and reconciliation pact. The March attack violated these agreements.

The South Korean leadership was quick to express outrage and condemn the aggressive military actions while the North Korean regime questioned the accuracy of the report and said it would send its own team of investigators to verify the findings.

U.S., South Korea to conduct joint military exercises

By Mike Mount CNN May 24, 2010 3:23 p.m. EDT

Washington (CNN) -- The U.S. military will conduct joint exercises with the South Korean military in response to that country's announcement that North Korea was behind the recent sinking of one of its warships, the Pentagon said Monday.

The United States and South Korea will conduct both anti-submarine and maritime interdiction training exercises in the future, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said.

Whitman would not discuss details or timelines on the two exercises, but noted that they are being planned in response to the March 26 sinking.

South Korea Cuts Nearly All Trade With North Korea


Published: May 23, 2010


SEOUL, South Korea — President Lee Myung-bak said on Monday that South Korea would drastically reduce trade with North Korea, restrict North Korean merchant ship use of South Korean sea lanes and call on the United Nations Security Council to punish the North for what he called the deliberate sinking a South Korean warship two months ago.

“We have always tolerated North Korea’s brutality, time and again,” Mr. Lee said in a nationally televised speech. “But now things are different. North Korea will pay a price corresponding to its provocative acts.

“Trade and exchanges between South and North Korea will be suspended,” he added.

Clinton in Japan for Okinawa base talks


By the CNN Wire Staff
May 21, 2010 7:20 a.m. EDT

Tokyo, Japan (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton started a weeklong tour of Asia on Friday for talks that are expected to be dominated by the escalating tensions between the Koreas.

Clinton landed in Japan for the first leg of the trip Friday. She'll meet in Tokyo with Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama and Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada. The daylong trip is expected to include talks about the controversial American military base in Okinawa.

The trip will also take her to China and South Korea, where she's expected to discuss the latest conflict between South Korea and North Korea after the South accused the North of sinking one of its warships in March.

Clinton: N. Korea must face consequences over sinking

May 21, 2010 12:54 p.m. EDT

(CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Friday that North Korea must faces consequences over the alleged sinking of a South Korean warship which has stoked tensions in the divided peninsular.

A South Korean military report published this week claimed that the sinking of the Cheonan was caused by a North Korean torpedo attack.

Pyongyang denies that claim and said Friday that it could back out of a nonaggression pact between the neighbors if Seoul attempted to punish it over the sinking.

North Korea and South Korea have remained officially at war since an armistice in 1953 brought their three-year Cold War conflict to an end.

"I think it's important to send a clear message to North Korea that provocative actions have consequences," Clinton said Friday as she began a week-long Asian tour in Tokyo, Japan. "We cannot allow the attack on South Korea to go unanswered by the international community."

She said she was consulting with international allies to find the appropriate reaction.

Their number is up.......for North Korea


Evidence that North Korea torpedoed the Cheonan puts it—and China—on the spot

May 20th 2010 | SEOUL AND TOKYO | From The Economist print edition

WHOEVER failed to erase the words “Number One” in blue Korean script etched inside the propulsion shaft of a deadly torpedo may well be in deep trouble in Pyongyang. On May 15th a ship dredging the site of the attack on a South Korean warship in March that killed 46 seamen made a spectacular find: propellers, motors and a steering section that international investigators say “perfectly match” those of a CHT-02D torpedo that North Korea sells abroad. What’s more, the blue marking was similar to one on a previously captured North Korean torpedo. This was as close to a smoking gun as the South Koreans could have hoped to find.

The discovery, combined with intelligence reports indicating North Korean submarines were out of port during the attack, allowed the investigators to conclude on May 20th that the Cheonan “was sunk as the result of an external underwater explosion caused by a torpedo made in North Korea.” Or as one person close to the investigation succinctly put it: “It was either the North Koreans, or it was the Martians.”

The South Korean government of President Lee Myung-bak had barely dared hope to find hard evidence of North Korean guilt, however strong its suspicions. In doing so, it pushes the belligerent regime in Pyongyang into a corner. True to form, it continued to deny its involvement on May 20th, calling the investigation a “fabrication” and threatened “all-out war” if new sanctions were imposed.

Busy Schedule for Rocket Obama Wants Scrapped


Published: May 16, 2010

The rocket that President Obama wants to kill is not dead yet...................(若依長期來說還是一個要不要接受許多的風險?)

NASA managers in charge of the rocket, the Ares I, which is part of the program to send astronauts back to the moon, have put together an ambitious testing program to accelerate its development, including a flight in November 2014 with astronauts aboard.

That would be four months earlier than NASA’s current schedule, which calls for the first manned flight in March 2015, and much faster than the 2017 date predicted by a blue-ribbon panel that reviewed NASA’s human spaceflight program last year.

Delays and rising costs are the primary reasons the Obama administration cites for its desire to kill the moon mission and turn over to private companies the business of launching astronauts.

But loud objections have come from some members of Congress, particularly those in Texas, Florida and Alabama, the homes of the NASA centers undertaking most of the development work for the moon program, known as Constellation.

Last month, in a speech at the Kennedy Space Center, President Obama modified his proposal, originally unveiled in February, and called for continuing the development of the Orion crew capsule that was to ride on top of the Ares I, but only as a stripped-down lifeboat for the International Space Station. The Ares program would still be canceled.
