Pas de parcours aujourd'hui, juste... den Beste

Steven den Beste on the Korean situation. His permalink is phrased, "North Korea blinks." True? Not so sure. Like Kevin and Robert, I have my doubts. We've seen this crap before. But China, China, China, it's all about that big booger called China. Den Beste puts his finger on it:

China doesn't want a reunited Korea under a government in Seoul which is an American ally. They don't want territory where America could deploy troops to be right on the Chinese border.

I agree. And this is something to keep in mind as we watch the latest round on the peninsula.

Also, a correction: I've been spelling his name "Stephen" for some reason. It's "Steven." My apologies.
