Responses to PacNet #1R – North Korea: What Not to Do

I defer to the experts who are debating the likely and/or desirable near-term direction of North Korea’s transition from the second to the third generation of the glorious Kim family. Victor Cha calls the stability prediction "optimistic" but worries that it won’t happen because someone will do something untoward. Evans Revere, on the other hand, expresses hopes but dreams for the collapse scenario.
