#1 Which may explain why CHINA is repor NOT OPTIMISTIC about the DPRK's nukes-for-food deal wid the US.
* OTOH WORLD MIL FORUM > CHINA LOSES NORTH KOREA! NEW US-DPRK ANTI-NUCLEAR DEAL IS INTENDED TO REDUCE NORTH KOREA'S DEPENDENCY ON CHINA. THE US' "C" ENCIRCLEMENT STRATEGY AGZ CHINA IN FIRST ISLAND CHAIN STEADILY DEVOLS INTO "O" OR TOTAL ENCIRCLEMENT STRATEGY AGZ CHINA ACROSS MAINLAND AND EAST ASIA.
* CHINA DAILY > CHINA OPPOSES JAPAN NAMING OF DAOYUS ISLANDS.
* TOPIX > CHINA'S MILITARY BUILDUP IN PACIFIC INDEPENDENT OF US MOVES.
FYI as per recent maritime incidents invol China versus Nippon Survey Ships [East China Sea], disputed Philippine offshore or coastal areas, + now Vietnamese fishing boats [Paracels = Xishas], CHINA MILBLOGGERS/NETTERS are saying that CHINA IS PUTTING OUT "WARNING FIRES" INDIRECTLY TO THE US VEE ITS REGIONAL ALLIES???

#2 If the West submits to occupied Afghanistan's hostile ideology why shouldn't undefeated nuclear North Korea expect equal submission from South Korea?
When Gen Allen apologized to the treacherous noble Afghan people he did so on the world stage. A weak apologetic posture might make sense in Afghanistan (calming down the natives) but it fatally undermines Western deterrence globally.
Western defeat to Afghanistan will have global consequences far worse than defeat in Viet Nam.

#3 "...threats to launch a "sacred war" against South Korea....
Inigo Montoya: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

#4 Dang, what ever happened to "running dog imperialist lackeys" and "sea of fire" Even with juche they seem to be using less stirring words, maybe they need a snickers? No worries, Obumbles and Hillary (smartest woman ever) are on the verge of giving them one.
