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.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
