Has Kim won the "North Korea crisis"? Clear signs he may have done just that.Submitted by Bob-45 on Thu, 04/11/2013 - 00:15
I wish I had the video for the "Wolf Blitzer Special Report on North Korea" (4/10/2013). Here is the evidence I gleaned from the report.
1) As had been reported earlier, the US announced it would NOT shoot down North Korean missiles being "tested," provided they were not heading for any populated targets.
2) "Reliable sources" reported that the White House is considering sending a high-level dignitary meet with Kim.
3) A War College "computer simulated attack on North Korea" demonstrated it would take up to two months to secure North Korea's nuclear sites and require more combat troops than those deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan COMBINED.
Also, there has been no more talk by either Secretary of State John Kerry or Pentagon officials that a nuclear North Korea is "unacceptable".
We may have dodged the bullet on this one. We should know within the next two to three weeks.
