While we all have been paying rapt attention to the situation in the Gulf of Mexico, and with good reason to do so, another "hot spot" in the world may soon be on the horizon. Korea!!!
Today, the "leadership" in North Korea suspended all ties with the South and according to unnamed reports are readying their 1.2 million man army to get ready for combat, so says the report filed by the BBC.
Yes, the North Koreans may once again be playing "chicken" with the world, but is Kim-Jong-Il crazy enough to take his last days on Earth,embroiled in a real live dispute with the South, the US and China? Let's hope not, but the South is damn angry about the sinking of the Cheonan on March 26, and want action taken NOW!!!
Il, not a sane man to begin with, may figure out, what the hell do I have to lose and start an international incident fraught with peril and no good endings for all sides involved. Right now, the South Koreans are talking tough, the North is talking war, the US is talking to the Chinese and the Chinese ain't saying much at all.
We all know that an all-out war between the North and South would go very badly for all sides involved and, M*A*S*H repeats not withstanding, no one wants to see a rehash of the Korean Conflict. I think???
