The Dear Leader’s Far-Sighted, Nostalgic Voyage

http://english.hani.co.kr/arti/english_edition/e_northkorea/437586.htmlNow that Kim Jong-il has returned from the PRC’s northeastern provinces, and former US President, Jimmy Carter has negotiated for the release of Aijalon Mahli Gomes, what is clear is, that the DPRK doesn’t want to denuclearize, even if it might return to Six-Party Talks.

The Dear Leader disses a former American president, like any good flag officer or manager avoiding a meeting. Reports of Kim Jong-il and his son’s trip are rife. But, is it a bad turn, even if rude? I have to agree with Jacob Heilbrunn.

My take: It’s good to see that filial piety is still a priority in North Korea.

Kim may specialize in nabbing American hostages–he used to focus on kidnapping young Japanese female film stars for his seraglio–but he is adhering to Confucian traditions in upholding family values. He wants to make sure that Kim Jong-un gets his.
