North Korean leadership: A study in pigheaded stupidity.


<!–[if !mso]> st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Every time I come across something in the news concerning North Korea the content seems to always fall into one of two categories; 1) how gut-wretchedly poor a people are who live under a dictatorship and 2) pointless saber rattling by Kim Jon Il shortly before he begins his trip to the great beyond. Now things seem to be ratcheting up again.
What’s disturbing about this occasion is twofold; 1) the successor appears to be even more of a slack-jawed idiot than his dad and 2) I have a sneaking suspicion that China is actually pulling the strings here. It’s possible that they have in mind an invasion of the south and, if true, it could be a blessing in disguise.
Here’s the situation. Right now the north is banking on America backing down and doing nothing. Intel has it that our president is a thinker-ponderer kind of man who would be completely ineffective in a fast moving military situation. Finally, Kim Jon Il (and getting iller) may feel this could be his last chance to make a big splash before going out. War is definitely a possibility in the near term.
But here is the good news. North Korea is actually more of a shell government. A quick and decisive strike by South Korea in conjunction with her Allies could quickly bring down the North and mark the beginning point of re-unification of both countries. A situation that would be good for the US and her allies and really bad news for China. It would also send a very clear message to the rest of the world that we stand by our friends through thick and thin.
