North Korea walks away from plans for high-level talks with South Korea, taking its southern neighbor by surprise after calling for negotiations in the first place. The meetings were planned for tomorrow, but collapsed after North Korea objected to the South's pick of its deputy unification minister for its chief delegate, calling the choice a "grave provocation." The North had wanted a meeting with more "senior officials."

    Perhaps HBO's Game of Thrones is popular in Korea...

    NK just wants the attention it thinks it deserves. It has done fairly well in the past on this, as outsiders have given in to most every whim and saber rattle.

    Better call Ambassador Rodman to come back and settle Lil Kim down. It would help if he could bring Carman with him.

    Sending the B-team for the talks is never a good idea.Next time send the CEO from Samsung.In less than 10 years,North Korea will be the next frontier for low-cost factory production.
