"the brink of war"

NORTH Korea is believed to have fired more artillery shells near Yeonpyeong Island last night in a training drill after warning that the Korean peninsula is on "the brink of war".
The move came as South Korea appointed a new Defence Minister, Kim Kwan-jin, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to toughen its response after Tuesday's fatal shelling of Yeonpyeong.
President Lee Myung-bak also moved to beef up weapons systems in the Yellow Sea islands and restore confidence in his government's ability to deal with North Korean threats. more from the Australian
