"North Korea’s 'Dear Leader' Kim Jong-il is dead. There is now no prospect of negotiating and implementing a new nuclear agreement with the North in the near future. The so-called Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is likely to be consumed with a power struggle which could turn violent. Washington’s best policy option is to step back and observe. ... Some observers hope for a 'Korean Spring,' but the DPRK’s largely rural population is an unlikely vehicle for change." (12/19/11)
