LIGNET: North Korea’s Threats Raise the Risk of War

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is threatening "to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists" after two American B-2 bomber jets flew over South Korea, dropping dummy bombs 50 miles from the DMZ. It’s likely just bluster. But North Korea may very well launch small-scale attacks on South Korean targets, as it did in 2010. This time, new South Korean President Park Geun-hye probably will  respond, raising the risk of a war on the Korean Peninsula.
