U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in South Korea on Thursday, making news with what she said about North Korea.
On her flight from Indonesia, Clinton said the North may be preparing for a leadership change after reports that its leader, Kim Jong Il, suffered a stroke last year. Clinton called the leadership situation “uncertain.”
For its part, North Korea stepped up its rhetoric today, saying it was fully ready for war with South Korea. See what a Worldfocus contributing blogger had to say about Korean maneuvers: No. Korea spews blustery rhetoric as Clinton arrives in So.
