Ed Markey: My Concern Is We Could Have an ‘Accidental War’ with North Korea

‘We could actually cross a trip wire that induces a paranoia in North Korea that could lead very rapidly to an escalation’

EXCERPT:

MARKEY: "One of the things that I left being concerned about is the communication that we have with North Korea. We have military maneuvers going on by the Americans and by the North Koreans. We really aren’t in constant communications with the North Koreans. And my concern is that we could actually have an accidental war. We could actually cross a tripwire that induces a paranoia in North Korea that could lead very rapidly to an escalation. And so, that’s a problem, I think, that they have to solve."
