Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

In my opinion there is a lot of information missing regarding the constant beating of the war drums by North Korea. Therefore I am solicitating  the DKOS folks for any factual information that may shed further light on the dangerous unrest going on in North Korea. The Main Stream Media (MSM) has been completely useless in this regard. The information that I have been able to garner is presented after the orange squiggle below.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

What makes the current situation so dangerous is that three of the most important people integral to the current situation on the Korean peninsula are all new in their respective positions. Starting with the "Great Successor" himself, the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un who assumed power in December 2011. Next is the President of South Korea, Park Guen-hye was just sworn into office on the 25th of February 2013, and she is South Korea's first woman President. Next is the General Secretary of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), Xi Jinping who took office in 2012. A quick glance at the dates that these people came into their respective positions of power will make it clear that none could be classified as seasoned operatives.

At this juncture it appears that urgent communication must be established among all three parties if the possibility of an outbreak of accidental warfare is to be avoided; especially in the area of the DMZ -  which currently no longer exists since Kim Jong-un declared that the provisions of the 1953 Armistice which ended the hostilities of the Korean war will no longer be recognized by the North.

Here is where I need a little help. Somewhere in my foggy memory I recall that the previous General Secretary of the PRC, Mr. Hu Jintao invited Kim Jong ll, Kim Jong-un's father, to China for a conference. It was reported that Kim Jung ll made the trip round trip to China by train. Subsequent to the event that  I just referenced Kim Jong ll was on another train trip in December 2011 when he suffered his fatal heart attack.

Regardless of the paucity of information regarding the conference between Kim Jong ll and Hu Jintao, I think that it is time for young Mr. Kim Jong-un to take a train ride to China for a critical conference with Mr, Xi Jinping. Such a conference would be in everyone's interest, as the current condition of the entire regional Asian commercial engine would be severely damaged by any serious armed conflict in Korea, and I think the only one that can make the case to Kim Jung-un is the Chinese General Secretary.

One additional person with a huge interest in the current Korean situation is our new Secretary of State, John Kerry, who coincidently is also very new on the job. However, I personally think that this situation is so critical that President Obama must use his personal contact with Xi Jinping to expedite setting up a conference between China and North Korea so as to resolve tensions straight away.
