    Report: White House Reconsiders North Korea Strategy
    The Wall Street Journal reports the White House is reconsidering its recent aggressive stance toward North Korea out of fear that it could inadvertently trigger an even deeper crisis. The Journal reports the United States is putting a pause on what several officials described as a step-by-step plan the Obama administration approved earlier this year, dubbed "the playbook," that laid out the sequence and publicity plans for U.S. shows of force during annual war games with South Korea.
    Repeat after me : North Koreans are anything but fools. They realised long back - even before seeing what US did to Saddam or Ghaddafi after they gave up nuclear weapons program. They are very rational actors.

    My friend also mentioned that South Korean capitalist class is spooked by the saber-rattling of their government .Ha , for once......

      it's funny that people say things like iran is run by madmen who want nuclear weapons when acquiring them would be the most rational thing to do when faced with an implacable enemy that has nukes like israel and its attack dog the united states.
