I've been meaning to write about this aspect of the NorK situation:
"What was interesting about the North Korean statement made last week is that not only did they announce they had nuclear weapons, but that they would never give those weapons up," Kyle said. "And that basically undermines the principal U.S. policy goal, which is to get North Korea to agree to the verified and irreversible elimination of its nuclear program. They [in Pyongyang] are now saying flatly that will never happen."

Kyle said assessing exactly what Pyongyang's intentions are is difficult because of what he characterizes as "turmoil" in the North Korean leadership.

"One thing which is important to keep in mind is that there is some sort of internal turmoil taking place within the senior North Korean leadership," he said. "It is not clear exactly what is going on, but we know something is happening there, so that is going to affect the policy-making process because we don't know who actually is deciding [things] at any particular moment."
I suppose I should get to doing it before it becomes an analysis of history.
