What is left after the sinking’s cause is determined is how the South Korean government and military will respond. Seoul is preparing multifaceted countermeasures with its foreign, defense and unification ministries. Also necessary is diplomatic responses such as referring the matter to the U.N.

For whose interest is it? For whose profit is it?
