Since I live in the traitorous South Korea, I am following this situation closely. Generally, Koreans here don't give a shit, because they have heard it all before. However, this is as tense as it has ever been. Some of them are starting to worry, and the local papers are dragging up stuff like the possibility of the military commandeering private cars. The military guys are not ignoring this at all, their opinion is that something will happen they just don't know when. An interesting complication is the Chinese troop movements on the NK border. No one really knows what this means, but the idea of a Chinese-led regime change is starting to sound appealing. They install a puppet that they can control and the status quo remains. Culturally speaking, this nonsense furthers the Koream inferiority complex. No other place tolerates this kind of bullshit from a country not named Murica. They are sick of it, and no government policy enjoys popularity regarding NK. The sunshine policy of the former president now seems like a waste of money, since they closed the industrial plant. From a humanitarian standpoint, this is a continuing nightmare. The US is preparing for a failed state in NK, and threatening the US with nuclear war, in a post-Iraq, Chavez-less, world probably sealed this regime's fate. Focus: North Korea. Do you have any information? Are you preparing for combat or do you think it will fizzle out?
