Tightening the screws

The South Korean government has announced it is suspending trade with North Korea.

The decision ought not surprise you -- Seoul already has ratcheted up the rhetoric against Pyongyang because of the North's alleged role in torpedoing a South Korean warship, killing almost 50 people in the process.

The South Koreans also say
they will press their case with the U.N. for stronger sanctions against their Northern neighbors. They're already assured of support from the U.S.
