    “Obama Gets North Korea Wrong Too”

    I continue to get the sense that our best bet, as a globe-entire, of getting something in North Korea that stops the slow-motion collapse with minimal disruption is to convince China to basically sponsor a proxy within the military leadership of NK to oust the Kims and take over, instituting some semblance of Deng-style reforms. It’s less preferable to OUR interests in the West than a unified & democratic peninsula, perhaps, but it’s likely the best realpolitikal possibility to secure the country & its weapons without war our humanitarian disaster. Better to offer a clear-thinking rival a stronger client state in lieu of having a madman selling nukes to God-knows-who.
