What is happening in Korea?
Recent posts around the blogosphere have raised the possibility that major changes are in the works inside North Korea.
Powerline reports on recent dissent (anti-regime flyers) that has gone unchecked by Korean authorities.
Free Will reports that Kim Jong-Il has become scarce in North Korea. He hasn't been seen in public recently and his name and image are being removed around Pyongyang.
I won't speculate further, but the Captain compares this situation to those of the former Soviet Union, when the "leaders" were reported to have "colds" before their deaths were publicly acknowledged.
It's a shame that Kerry did not get his chance to conduct his "bilateral" talks with Mr. Jong-Il.
