Korea - part II.

See my previous post (November) on developments in Korea here.

The Times of London, via California Yankee, has an update. It appears that governments around the world are preparing for a change in Korean leadership. The Times story discusses assassinations and assassination attempts. The Times also speculates on Kim's possible loss of power to "a clique of generals and party cadres."

My earlier post discussed the removal of Kim's posters around Pyongyang and a sudden apparent tolerance for dissent.

It's far too early to celebrate, but the story is worth watching. The collapse of the North Korean government would remove whatever reason for living American leftists still have.
