There is, indeed, a bomb waiting to go off on the Korean Peninsula, but it is not of the Kim Jong-un's making. Seoul and its allies in the U.S. and elsewhere must give equal -- if not greater emphasis -- to the very real and complex crisis that might cause the Korean economic miracle to implode.
Perhaps Obama should be more careful about what he calls a "red line." Dictators are not impressed by empty threats. Would there be support for a multi-national effort to secure chemical weapons stores?
The governments of countries most endangered by Pyongyang are now asking a critical question: What to do? Fortunately, the answer is clear.
IHS noted that about 66 percent of the world's NAND flash and 70 percent of the tablet display manufacturing takes place in South Korea. So any outbreak of hostilities would result in the immediate halt of smartphone, tablet and computer manufacturing worldwide.

WASHINGTON--In Washington, D.C. today, the White House was taken over by North Korean terrorists. With the help of a rogue Secret Service agent, the P...
As long as China continues to feed, clothe, and arm regimes like North Korea and Iran, the world will face these kinds of destabilizing nuclear-tipped crises. This is the time for China to stand up so that North Korea (and Iran) will stand down.
When Cambodia's Khmer Rouge committed genocide from 1975 to 1978, which ultimately took 2 million lives, the U.S. government was slow to allow relief ...
You know me -- I love all of God's children. Unless of course, they're threatening to nuke my country -- to which, I take great offense.
