South Korea Koreas Tension Shouts and Silence
FILE - In this Aug. 10, 2017, file photo, a man watches a television screen showing U.S. President Donald Trump, left, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program at the Seoul Train Station in Seoul, South Korea. When North Korea makes a threat, the government in Seoul vents its anger while South Korean citizens mostly shrug off what can seem like a daily barrage of hostility. Trump has introduced a new wrinkle to this familiar pattern. His recent Pyongyang-style threat to unleash “fire and fury” on the North has been met with silence from the top levels of government in Seoul - and worry, sometimes anger, from the country’s citizens.
