KT McFarland’s Excellent Analysis on the North Korean Crisis

KT McFarland wrote a piece titled, “This time things could be very, very different with North Korea”, on the Fox news website, which explains the heightened risks in this latest North Korean escalation due to the inexperienced leadership in North Korea and the surrounding countries. McFarland points out that not only does North Korea have a new, unpredictable leader, but China, Japan and South Korea all have leaders who have been in office scant weeks and are thought to be hawkish in defense issues.  Added to this unknown quantity is the US, where we have Mr. For-It-Before-He-Was-Against-It Kerry, whose diplomatic style is anyone’s guess at this point.
