North Korea: Axis of ridiculous

There's a new Kim in town, but can we expect the bad boy regime in Pyongyang to change?

Nuclear disarmament talks with North Korea have been on hold pending the outcome of recent elections in Japan and South Korea (and the United States), and the (undemocratic) leadership change in China, but once the new leaders of the East Asian nations have their feet firmly under their desks, the Pyongyang problem will return to the top – or near the top – of their diplomatic agendas.

Yes, Kim Jong-un is Western-educated, and yes, he seems to like roller coasters, but at the same time, he's just launched a new long-range missile. How much of a threat do he and his posse of generals pose? No one knows.
