    I do so love the N.Korean experts here. They ALWAYS know what's going to happen over there and tell us so right after it does.

    Why O Why can't we get geniuses like you in the CIA or the State Department?

      I predict North Korea will behave scandalously regardless of the plans Obama has for the middle east relations, I expect North Korea to throw tantrums and demand attention.

      That said, I much prefer Obama's public relations randori to military kumite. It is upon this tatame that the outstanding issues with North Korea are likely to be engaged.

      Afterall, "To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill"
