Is Korea the next battle?

North Korea in the recent weeks has become more aggressive and is issuing threats almost daily.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen has said that the danger of war in Korea
is rising and North Korea has increased the tension with its aggression against the South.

Former Secretary of Defense William Cohen has suggested that the U.S. increase it's troop strength
in Korea at least for a period of time while the North is still acting in a belligerent manner.

It is felt that while these remarks were aimed at the North, it was also another call to China, that it
is time to reign in its partner. China has been supporting North Korea and has ignored requests to
step in and do what can be done to contain the problem.

A diplomatic source in Washington said "U.S. officials are hinting that they are willing to risk a
military clash with the North as a kind of warning to China"
