(Newser) – The North Korea/South Korea feud is ratcheting up tensions between the US and China, with the United States' top military official complaining that the North’s “reckless behavior” was “enabled by their friends in China.” Admiral Mike Mullen said that he was deeply concerned about the situation, reports the BBC, believing that the North will continue provoking the South. China fired back at Mullen’s accusation, saying military threats wouldn’t resolve the problem, and asking what he’d ever done for “peace and stability in the region.”
