Back to East Asia

Hmmm.  Looks like my theory on the Canadian and American elections didn't go over well with the readers.  Perhaps my musings on North Korea will.

The painful thing about this is the fact that Canada has been utterly silent on this.  As a northern Pacific nation and American ally - even one outside of the six-party talks format - Canada could have at least provided some pressure to North Korea and its Beijing puppet-masters to cut out the antics and actually follow through on two decades worth of promises.

In fact, it still could.  After all, we're talking about a regime starving its own people, looking to build a nuclear warhead, and arming terrorist sponsors in the Middle East.

To see the Grits ignore these things is standard; to see the Tories just as oblivious is maddening.

It would be interesting to find out what, if any, relation exists, at the diplomatic level, between Canada and the DPRK. Is there any trade between the countries? I recall that the DPRK was to open an embassy in Ottawa, although that seemed to fail.
