I think they're just sabre rattling stemming from their economic problems and the fact they don't have the Soviet Union to run to for financial aid. They are also intellectually bankrupt as a result of being the first communist regime in which power was handed down to the next generation of the leader's family - this did not work out as the current leader is ill-suited for the job. I think appeasement will be readily attained through financial aid. What they really need is an internal coup even if it is by other communists as anyone would have to be better, and smarter, than what they have now.

Sabre rattling? They have processed uranium, have made several new bombs this year--some say seven or so--and they have proven their willingness to sell/trade this material, as evidenced by sending some to Libya.

And Kim Jong Il could be intellectually bankrupt, as you said, but he's one crazy man... crazy. He is not a rational actor.

To ignore Korea is an enormous mistake.
I'm back. Sorta.

Agreed, but I think they see this as their only bargaining chip in today's world, at least in their leader's unbalanced mind. I do believe he is for sale to the highest bidder and I don't forsee anyone outbidding the U.S. should they chose to send economic aid to N. Korea - not an easy thing to do given the relationship between the U.S. and S. Korea, but then what is the alternative - to bomb N. Korea back into the stone age? A delicate situation to be sure, but a workable one. (Ah, for the the good old days of the CIA executing foreign dictators).

Shortly after my last post, the White House announced it has proposed an offer to North Korea in return for dismantling its nuclear weapons program. Terms of the proposal were not announced and they did say that due the nature of it they do not expect an immediate response.

I don't understand why the senior members of the communist party didn't get rid of this nut the second his father died rather than have him take over the party and the country (like the Soviets did when they executed Beria the second Stalin died for fear he would attempt a power grab). I mean even if they didn't kill him, strip him of any power or exile him.

My guess is Yankee fans and Red Sox fans agree on most everything besides baseball.

Look who you elected:

Ted Kennedy :-P
Hillary Clinton :-P
