Latest Kim Jong-Un Items
South Korea said Thursday it accepted a North Korean proposal to hold high-level defense talks a day after the leaders of the U.S. and China called for better communication between the two Koreas.
North Korea could fire missiles at South Korea next year, analysts predicted Monday, as the isolated North's hostility toward the outside world deepens while it undergoes a hereditary transfer of power.
History occasionally repeats itself, but seldom with the carbon-copy quality of North Korea's provocative artillery attack on a small South Korean island near the disputed frontier. The latest aggression, a follow-up to the North's torpedoing of a South Korean patrol ship in March, shooting incidents in the demilitarized zone (DMZ), and bellicose nuclear rhetoric coincides with the debut of Kim Jong-un, ailing strongman Kim Jong-il's son and designated successor.
South Korea's next defense chief threatened Friday that jets would bomb the North if it stages another attack like last week's deadly shelling as he outlined a tough new military policy toward the rival neighbor.
South Koreans called President Lee Myung-bak "the Bulldozer" when he plowed into office nearly three years ago with vows to stop coddling North Korea with unconditional aid.

The main difference between this attack and previous inexplicable acts of violence from Pyongyang is that this time the world faces a nuclear power.
North Korea's young heir apparent has launched a purge of senior party and military officials in an apparent attempt to cement his grip on power, a North Korean defectors group said Wednesday.
