The Cold Filtered Ramblings of Gene Mueller

Two words you never want to see together: "accidental" and "war"

  • Print

 

North Korea's national anthem isn't a song.  It's a set of constantly rattling sabers.

You'd have to be deaf not to hear the noise across the Pacific these days.

Is the new North Korean leadership team hell-bent on conflict, or is this just another bit of belligerence that will end with us handing over a generous package of fresh aid?   That usually is the end game as this dance plays out, at least in years gone by.

The danger now, though, is that one of the parties involved makes a mistake, causes a provocation, makes a stumble or rings a bell that can't be 'un-rung".

We've been here before.   The Cold War.  The Middle East.   And, almost on an annual basis, on the Korean Peninsula.   Never before, though, has the rhetoric between North and South run this hot this long, opening up the unappetizing prospect of an accidental war.

Two words you never want to see next to each other in the same sentence, and a possibility no one wants to see become a reality.
