North Korea welcomed the new year Saturday with a call for better ties with rival South Korea, warning that war "will bring nothing but a nuclear holocaust."
...South Korea's Unification Ministry, which handles relations with the North, said the editorial carried in the official Korean Central News Agency, even with its tough rhetoric, showed the North's interest in resuming talks with the South.
In South Korea, President Lee Myung-bak, dressed in traditional Korean clothes, said in a televised New Year's address he would work toward peace. "I am confident that we will be able to establish peace on the Korean peninsula and continue sustained economic growth," he said.
North Korea said in its editorial that confrontation between the Koreas should be quickly defused.
"Under the leadership of the great leader Kim Jong Il, the future of Korea will be brighter," said Kim Hye Gyong, a Pyongyang citizen interviewed by APTN. "Today I greet new year 2011 with such happy feelings."
In Chinese Taoist thought, water is representative of intelligence and wisdom, flexibility, softness and pliancy; however, an over-abundance of the element is said to cause difficulty in choosing something and sticking to it. In the same way, Water can be fluid and weak, but can also wield great power when it floods and overwhelms the land.
...Water is the most yin in character of the Five elements, its energy is downward and inward and its motion is stillness and conserving. ...The negative emotion associated with water is fear, while the positive emotion is calmness.

2011 is the Chinese New year of the Rabbit so the chances of any Asian nation going to war this year is very slim however next year is the Year of the Dragon and the the fact that 2012=5, 5 is a war number.
I think overall, 2011 will be a year for a good breather and not much war will be happening.
Just my 2c worth.
I dont give a damn what year it is. North Korea is a problem. Both Iran and this country scare the hell out of me and if they get nuclear weapons, heaven help us.
