Last week in New York, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the press that if the United States attacked Iran over its nuclear program it would face war like it had never seen.
Discussion of the U.S.-Russia Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty -- aka New START -- has so far pretty much skipped one very important consideration: China.
As a rising power, China has also worked hard to develop ties with South Korea, looking to establish commercial relationships that would aid Chinese economic growth.
When North Korea makes headlines, it is never good news. For instance, there was the Korean War -- certainly not good news. Then there was the seizure of the USS Pueblo in 1968 and the shooting down of a U.S. Navy EC-121 intelligence plane in 1969. And in 1983 there was attempted assassination of members of the South Korean cabinet in Rangoon.
So, nearly a decade after the horrors of the 9/11 attacks, where do we in the U.S. stand in our War on Terror?

In the coming months, lots of people will be cranking up their computers and burning up the airwaves with commentary on the just-announced departure of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates sometime in 2011.
The EMP (electromagnetic pulse) threat isn't new; awareness of it goes back to the early days of nuclear weapons testing that took place during World War II.
You have probably never heard of an "EMP." Don't feel bad, a lot of people haven't.
