Well, I don’t really know. But that’s what we need right now. Any ideas about where to go for the best reporting and analysis on this? Meantime, a pretty solid blog, Robert Koehler’s Marmot’s Hole , is probably the best bet, even though Robert’s skill-set is more attuned to South Korean culture and politics than to things geo-strategic, let alone things tyrannico-pathologic. Follow the link for his reasoning why this present round of “we’ve practically already declared war on you” NK rhetoric is nothing but talk.
I will say this, though . . . . . . when the North Korean regime eventually falls, things so heinous will be brought to light that thoughtful South Koreans and Americans, even the anti-“neo-con” ones, will be ashamed they did not push for a more resolute and actively regime-undermining stance against it.
