North Korea: Regime unstable?

“There is more evidence to suggest that North Korea really is in dire financial straits after all,” writes Joshua at The Korea Liberator. “Some would not call this a novel conclusion to make about a country in which 2.5 million people have starved to death…”

“No one will miss Kim Jong Il when his regime falls. But few stop to seriously think about what will happen when North and South Korea become one,” says ComingAnarchy‘s Curzon, linking to some post-Kim possibilities at The Marmot's Hole.
