My Comment:
I have mentioned more than once in the past that in the event of war, U.S. fatalities on the Korean Peninsula will quickly dwarf all U.S. fatalities in the past 10 years of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

South Korean civilian casualties will be in the tens of thousands, North Korean military casualties will reach horrendous levels from U.S. precision airstrikes, and the cost to the South Korean economy will be in the trillions. On a geopolitical level .... this will be the number one issue on the world stage for 2013 .... bar none.
