Clinton calls North Korea’s future leadership uncertain

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.

Charles Armstrong, the director of the Center for Korean Research at Columbia University, joins Martin Savidge to discuss how Clinton will be received in South Korea, what her agenda will be and policy towards North Korea.

U.S. leadership is quite the thing; e.g., Leon Panetta knows nothing about Intelligence but is the CIA sultan. Hillary Clinton could not find Guinea-Bissau on a map if she were promised an immediate promotion to POTUS; she knows no more about the Koreas than any grad student at Georgetown. This is poor, very, very poor.


North Korea, you don’t want to do anything with the USA – one atomic bomb would take your country off of the map.
