#1 The Barack Obama administration's nonproliferation guru emphasized Thursday that North Korea should take "some real, practical" measures towards denuclearization for the resumption of dialogue.

Hey Obama, hold your breath and wait.

#2 Sorry, but I'm not convinced - IMO as "post-US", "Mahanist" China attempts to acquire strategic access through the "First Island Chain" into the far/deep Pacific, IT IS IN BOTH THE US + ROK'S INTEREST TO DEV + SUPPORT A NUCLEAR, INCLUD NUCLEAR-ARMED NORTH KOREA.

A NUCLEAR NOTH KOREA = LEADS TO A NUCLEAR SOUTH KOREA = LEADS TO A NUCLEAR REUNIFIED KOREA CAPABLE OF UNILATERAL, NON-US DEPENDENT STRATEGIC OR GEOPOL DETERRENCE.

"NO NUKES" = INTER-KOREAN "STATUS QUO" as known.

A nuke-armed North Korea may be the only way to achieve true or effective POST-COLD WAR/USSR, GERMANY-STYLE INTER-KOREAN REUNIFICATION. Unless something major changes wid Beijing, IMO its either the above, or else both the US + ROK, ETC. FOREVER ABANDON NORTH KOREA TO PERPETUAL + INCREASINGLY EXPANDING/PROGRESSIVE CHINESE DOMINATION IFF NOT DE FACTO CHINESE ANNEXATION.

Sorry iff the truth sucks.
