How to Solve a Problem Like N. Korea

We’ve been here before — the “no nuke progress in exchange for food” quid pro quo that we’ve been trying to hold the N. Koreans to for at least 20 years.

At least it seems the old song and dance works pretty much the same
under the young Un as it did under his father.  If the pattern holds, we just got the forces of globalization ~6-8 brinkmanship-free months to keep working on the DPRK like a nutcracker.

Do-re-mi it ain’t, but hope is in order, because this status quo can’t last.
