The Korean Times: China’s playing the staunch guardian role for North Korea in response to the Cheonan incident greatly antagonized South Koreans. Some of them saw it as a defining moment, revealing the true nature of the giant neighbor that failed to measure up to be a responsible global stakeholder.

Guy Sorman observes that the episode also left Seoul with a task of how to deal with the increasingly assertive and domineering superpower in the future. He yet adds that the problem of how to handle China is a global problem today.

The Western construct that China is an “irresponsible superpower” has found a new market in South Korea, which saw China shielding North Korea from the global outrage over the Cheonan incident.
