BLITZER’S BLOG: Nervous about North Korea

Atlanta (CNN) – Even while I’m here at the CNN Election Center in Atlanta getting ready for the Iowa caucuses, I’m hearing disturbing murmurings from my national security sources in Washington about North Korea.

They clearly don’t know what the new leadership in Pyongyang is going to do but they are bracing for a possible provocation on the Korean peninsula.

    How many Americans care what form of government North Korea operates? How many Americans actually know about the Korean War? Was it worth fighting?

    NOW is the perfect time to renegotiate our trade agreement with S Korea. Terms are that they pay our national debt and we keep our troops there otherwise good LUCK.

    China is going to have to come up with a plan to change North Korea's economy off of the military, and weapons production, and onto other forms of manufacturing...something..maybe car parts, or cars....they do have some good computer hackers,....that have to travel to China to gain access to the world internet though.and hacking into the rest of the world is not going to get them much help from the west.....China and Asia as a whole are heading to be the new world center for growth and soon....they do not want or need North Korea screaming War, War, War, every few years to get more aid and food supplies....and the U.S. and China do not want to be facing each other across a China – Korea border..that would be far to dangerous...an peaceful merging of economies has the best hope...

    The North Koreans know that Obama will allow them to do whatever they please. You should be nervous, Wolfie.

    Just wonderful... you're suggesting we turn our military into a mercenary force sold to whoever can pay the price! Just as nutty as most of Ron Paul's foreign policy positions.

    @LarryL – How many Americans actually know about the Korean War? Obviously not that many if somebody very high (LOL) in the teapublikan party didn't know whether north or south are our allies.
