Difficult to take the word of "a source" on this, but something's surely going on there. The problem, as ever, is trying to figure out what that something is.

Still, if there's any shift away from the military then surely it can only be welcome.

North Korea is such a secretive, uncommunicative country, it's surprising we know this much.

Thanks Cal for posting the article by Lizzy Tomei. Sounds like North Korea just might be moving toward important reforms but we will have to wait and see what is in the details. Read and noted

I sincerely hope that North Korea can become something more than a living example of how inhumane a government can be to its own citizens.

Thanks but I don't trust North Korea.
