    North Korea opening up? Admits South Korean "sympathy" expedition

    North Korea says it will admit delegations from South | CNN Wire Staff | CNN.com

    Ah, what a great moment it will be if that fucker's death prompts peaceful re-unification.

    Maybe this is the first step. We'll have to wait and see.

    That would be a very good thing. Kim Jong Il turned North Korea into a festering open sore. Time for that wound to start healing.

    Umm, the US sanctions destroyed N Korea. They need their tool against China. It is pretty moot now as China quit buying T-Bills.

    I kinda thought, or maybe it was hoped, that this would happen.

    What they did was keep it down with brutal sanctions, and that is an act of war, let alone a crime against humanity.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. The law of averages made it inevitable, LOL.

    We probably agree on a lot of things - but it's the disagreements that get all the ink.

    Should have known that regardless of the topic having absolutely nothing to do with banking or the economy that you could insert something related to it. What about derivatives? Don't they have something to do with the North allowing some from the south to come in and pay their respects to the old leader?

    in my head
    China will probably not allow a reunification unless the prospect of getting rid of a US presence in Korea seems worth it. Will the South Koreans promise to kick us out?

    Are the military leaders in NK going to find cushy positions in South Korea somehow? Doubt that. And they are the ones really in charge, I suspect.

    The next few months will be interesting. The first signs seem positive, though.
