And please don't say this flag and some games.

The flag has been used since 1991. (that's progress?)

The Korean newspaper Dong-A ilbo (quoting an intelligence source) says the soldier who was shot defecting from the North on Nov 13th has confessed to commiting a murder before he fled. Strange that the North have not used this to denounce his actions.

The press is reporting that the Corpulent Un has, under the Olympic flame so to speak, invited SK President Moon to a visit in Pyongyang. I imagine other news agencies will be fleshing (pun intended) this story out.

Pretty obvious that Chubby is playing the Olympics for all the mileage he can.

If Koreans (north and south) share a common heritage, how come those in the north are called Kim whilst the southerners are called Moon?

'Park' is a very popular surname in SK. I know one Korean personally and she's a 'Park'


(yes, a sample of 1 is not statistically significant but she confirmed that there are lots of Parks in SK)

It will be very interesting to see 'bottom breaths' reaction if Kim Jong-un decided to back up his sister's appearance at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony with a personal appearance at the closing ceremony.

News that isn't news.

Salty old admiral reminds people that Mr Kim intends to unify the Korean peninsula under the Kim family rule, which was Kim Il Sung's and Kim Jong Il's dream as well. From the Kim family point of view, they are the rightful rulers/heirs (like Aragorn, I suppose) of the "northern and southern kingdoms."


But none of that is news. Not sure why the press trotted this particular story out.

Possibly as a response to the MSM fawning adoration of the Phat Won's sister. You know, sort of remind the talking heads of what NK is really like and that's it's run by a murderous dictator?
Besides, given the mentality of our political class, it never hurts to remind them of the obvious (or at least what's obvious to most of us).

Sky and BBC reporting that Messieurs Trump and Kim are going to get together for a good old-fashioned chin wag. Lots to chat about I am sure.

Anyway, interesting - until one of them changes his (using the term loosely) mind.

If it ever does take place it will be very interesting.
Couldn't choose two more ego-centric flamboyancies to put face (to translators) to face.
I can predict the results now. Things will either be better or worse.
Wonder if vaudeville is about to make a return or that honoured, cultural practice of running them out of town on a rail.
Trump very, very quick to anger and he's already mighty pissed off.

Trump and North Korea

Has Trump made a bold and courageous decision to meet Kin Jong-Un or is he being nave?

The establishment now seems hell bent on queering the pitch by insisting on preconditions.

By his actions he could well bypass 65 years of stalemate. If he brings the Korea war to a formal conclusion it would be a defining achievement of his presidency.

Soi, is he right or wrong?

We know Trump is naive regarding politics in general, and international politics specifically, however, dialog is the primary tool at diplomacy's disposal. The trouble here is Trump has demonstrably few if any diplomatic skills with which to pursue this line of action.

On the other (small, orange) hand, the two tyrannical, anti-free press, bombastic, and seemingly moronic leaders have a few things in common, so that might be the start of a working relationship.

By his actions he could well bypass 65 years of stalemate. If he brings the Korea war to a formal conclusion it would be a defining achievement of his presidency.
No arguments from this anti-Rump American.
