Obama and Hu to confer over Korean crisis

Washington (CNN) - With top U.S. officials continuing to declare that help from China will be key to getting North Korea to ratchet down the crisis caused by Pyongyang's deadly strike on a South Korean military installation, President Obama is planning to call Chinese President Hu Jintao in the next few days to discuss the critical situation, according to senior administration officials.

The phone call will come just days after Obama held a bilateral meeting with Hu on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Seoul, where administration officials were quick to tout the fact that it was the seventh face-to-face meeting the two leaders have had since Obama took office.

    I trust the president to make the right moves and sound decisions, I am glad we don't have a hot headed president that would have cast the american people into a war that was unattainable at the moment. If any how we attacked north Korea we would have to deal with china. A war like that would take us to world war three. The people of the world don't need that right now since there are no terrony happening in today global society, only those pesky terrorist with their once in a while bombing nuisance.
