A view of two Koreas

Published: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 04:54 PM.

A South Korean described his northern brothers and sisters as "angry little children" and very difficult to deal with on a rational basis, unreasonable. "Little Napoleons" if you will.

The footprint left contemptibly by a North Korean "guest" on the conference table in T-2 is another reminder of the difficulties the world faces in dealing with the angry children of North Korea. While we discard the inevitability of war, it is difficult to see another way given the DMZ’s tinderbox tensions, the overheated political rhetoric, and the unprincipled and spoiled nature of North Korea’s leaders.
