#1 May delay? Any talks is pointless until we know for sure who's going to survive the bloodbath.

#4 NEWSMAX > {Ex-House INTEL CHair Pete H.] HOEKSTRA: NORTH KOREA IS UNPREDICTABLE, BELLIGERENT, + could potentially remain so despite the passing of Kim Jong-il.

ARTIC > HOEKSTRA = denotes that ...
> US INTEL'S record of prediction + forecast has been very poor oer the last 10-15 years.

IOW, THE US KNOWS LITTLE TO ANYTHING RELIABLE AS PER THE INNER WORKINGS NORTH OF KIMMIE + REGIME.

> It may take JONG-UN 1-3 years to effectively consolidate his power + control over the Pyongyang Govt.
> Externally, i.e. as a matter of DPRK foreign policythe new JOng-Un Regime may attempt NEW REGIONAL, INTERNATIONAL PROVOCATION TO SHOW THAT IT IS "SOMEONE TO BE FEARED", espec to enhance Jong-un's personal credibility as NOKOR's de facto Leader.

versus

* SAME > NORTH KOREAN DICTATOR'S DEATH SUSPICIOUS TO EXPERTS | SUSPICIONS RISE [in DPRK] OVER CAUSE OF NOTH KOREAN DICTATOR'S DEATH [Jong-Il].

* BIG NEWS NETWORK > NORTH KOREA, IN TRANSITION [post-Kimmie] COULD FURTHER WITHDRAW INTO ITS SHELL, i.e. become MORE HARDLINE, MORE BELLIGERENT while also being MORE ISOLATIONIST.

* TOPIX > POST-KIM JONG-IL NORTH KOREA: WORST-CASE SCENARIOS.

-------

ABOVE > ONE XPERT = opined that Kim Jong-Un's Uncle JANG SONG TAEK [married to Kimmie's powerful sister = Jong-Un's Aunt] may need to be closely monitored by the US-Allies as he will likely be the ACTUAL RULER of North Korea for a time as Kim Jong-Un's = "Little Kim"s Regent while the latter "learns on the job".

Yuh Oh.

[SHAKESPEARE'S KING RICHARD II + WEIRDLY + MYSTERIOUSLY "LOST/MISSING PRINCES" here].

D *** NG IT, WHAT DOES US INTEL-PYWAR THINK IS GONNA HAPPEN - A MADONNA FAN FROM GUAM HAVE VISIONS OF KIM JONG-IL'S DEATH BY LIQUID ON A TRAIN???
