Risk of War Rising on Korean Peninsula

Admiral Mullen warns of potential conflict in Korea

Unintended consequences.  Black swan events.  Who would have thought that the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand would have led to World War I?

It is these sorts of potential crises that can crop up from anywhere that can precipitate a change in the "world as we know it" overnight.  The historian in me watches what is unfolding in Korea with a reflection on past world history.  That's what makes it concerning.
